Weekly Report 20/12/08

Post by Tony Zann » Sat Dec 20, 2008 9:56 am

Thank you to all who emailed their protests over a possible lock-out of fishing grounds off South West Rocks. These will be forwarded this week to the Minister. There will be a meeting chaired by EcoFishers representatives on January 7 at the Country Club from 5.30pm to 7pm.
Dirty green water may have slowed the early pelagics but from all reports from up north, they’re on their way. Mahi mahi have been around the FAD in good numbers but most are just on size. Fish Rock again has small kings but reports of better kings around Green Island. There have been a few jackets around a kilo out there which I would think unusual for this time of year. Reports of a few snapper of Grassy and Scotts with better results further north. One fisho had a couple of cobia around his boat off the jail but could not tempt them to take a bait.
Land-based river anglers have battled over the last week where those drifting the breakwalls and shallow sand flats have done well with flathead, whiting and the odd small jew into the night. The river boat ramp has produced some big estuary cod but remember these are protected and must be released. Live bait is the go.
The beaches are still not firing apart from the odd whiting, dart and bream. There were a few flathead pulled out of Back Beach through the week. Rockhoppers have been getting a few tailor, trevally and the odd silver and black drummer from the jail to the lighthouse.
