Weekly Report 9/10/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Oct 09, 2009 2:30 pm

We all got pretty well blown away last week with the southerlies keeping the blue water guys land based.
The river has been fishing OK, you just need to find somewhere protected from the wind. Good numbers of flathead are about if you can get into the shallows around Clybucca – not many bigger units but some nice fish. Whiting and bream have been about in the same location. A few of the kayakers are doing well around Jerseyville for whiting and flathead around the trawlers. Small schoolies and bream are biting around the bridge pylons. The breakwall is producing some nice bream on the run-out tide with the odd flathead, salmon and stingrays. The mouth of Spencers Creek has had some nice flathead and school jew.
Before the blow, Back Beach was fishing well for fair whiting and dart on a fuller tide. It has been slow on Smoky Beach for a few weeks now with really no change apart from the odd bream, dart and a few lonely salmon. Gap Beach had a few small tailor on the northern side with a few bream and whiting. Rockhoppers have had problems with the swell but there have been some drummer, the odd tailor and salmon with a few bream.
Horrible conditions at the end of last week made it tough to get reports. Earlier in the week Fish Rock was very productive for kingfish with a good number over the legal 65cm. There were flathead on the gravel in front of the lighthouse and out wider to Rocks in Line has morwong and a few pearlies. Snapper were on the bite off Scotts Head where good numbers were caught in fairly shallow water floating pilchards down a nice berley trail. The marine park issue has not gone away so you can go to www.stopmarinelockout.com.au and sign the petition.
