Weekly Report 17/10/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Oct 17, 2008 8:41 am

We have a flat ocean, good weather and keen anglers; the only thing missing is the fish. All blue water fishos are struggling to find a feed in a week with not many highlights. Last weekend Fish Rock was boiling with life on the surface but the fish were not interested in taking baits apart from Dennis Morton’s 23kg king and a only a few that made the boat. Mac tuna are making a return around the rock to the Jail. Snapper have been slow off Grassy and Scotts Head apart from the odd one on plastics but they seem reluctant to take a bait. There were a few pearlies caught wider out in the cleaner water. There is a block of warm water coming down the coast and with a bit of luck might kick-start the summer season.
There were some nice flathead weighed in through the week out of the river caught on the drift along the breakwall. There were also some panners out of Spencers Creek and Stuarts Point. Only a handful of legal bream were caught last week with fresh bait like worms and nippers working well early in the day. There are a few whiting about but the numbers will improve over the next month.
Not much joy for the beach fisherman with fairly calm conditions and a jelly in the surf that has made fishing tough. Salmon, a few tuna and the odd bream were about for rock hoppers.
All our Christmas stock will be in store over the next week including great snapper combos, new season rods and reels at value prices a good range of snorkelling and water sport products. Lay-bys more than welcome.
