Weekly Report 5/9/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 05, 2008 11:50 am

More wind and rain pounding us again last weekend slowed the fisho’s down but before that, those who got out were rewarded with some nice fish. There has been a lot of activity around Fish Rock with fair kings up to 75cm in amongst hundreds of rats racing for the bait. There were a few small snapper off the bottom. Those who ventured out wide towards the shelf picked up a few bar cod and blue eye in reasonable conditions. Snapper were on the bite again off the reefs around Grassy with a range of plastic baits extremely effective on these species around sunrise. Floating pilchards have also been working well. Pearl perch are coming out of the same area with bigger fish out a little wider. There are still a few jackets about.
Flathead are making a welcome return to our river system with some taken off the banks up to 4kg. Nice panners are coming out of the Back Creek on mullet, whitebait and plastics. There are straggler blackfish about along the walls but there are a few undersize as the run comes to an end. If you can get around the oyster racks at Clybucca, throw some baits or lures at the healthy bream living there.
Good bream are coming in along Smoky Beach from Black Rock to the Hat along with a few salmon and tailor. Gap Beach has had some whiting, bream and tailor while the rockhoppers are using metals on the good quality tailor.
We are fully stocked with the new seasons watersport products, come in and have a look. Lay-by more than welcome.
