Weekly Report 18/12/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Dec 18, 2009 5:06 pm

Fishing has been picking up slowly over the last few weeks. Warmer currents are helping with good stocks of live bait around the grounds. Grassy Head has been producing just legal snapper in close while trag are about again towards Scotts. 60 fathoms is fishing well for some nice kings, pearl and long fin perch, an abundance of morwong and the odd cod in the deeper grounds. Fish Rock had some reports of good kings caught on knife jigs, plenty of rats and a snapper or two. Bonito are about in close with the odd tailor taking trolled lures.
Good bream are coming in off the breakwall with some beauties caught on the drift. Flathead are in good numbers along the walls with around the Tavern still the hot spot. Whiting are in the river up towards Stuarts Point, Spencers Creek and shallows across from the boat ramp. Bass are biting well on the upper reaches of the Macleay past Kempsey and if you are using a Taylor Made Basscada under the trees, you are guaranteed a hit.
The rockhoppers are having mixed results with slim pickings in front of the jail but the lighthouse has some good jew off the ledges. Rod Wawrzyniak fished the rocks at Hat Head for a nice 18.5kg jewfish.
Smoky Beach also is a hit and miss situation with the north end giving up some nice bream and whiting through the week and then going off the bite along the beach. Gap Beach has had little action apart from a few whiting around mid tide. Main and Back beaches have had some whiting at first light.
We now have the range of Fin Nor and Quantum reels in stock. These strong reliable reels, some with 30kg of drag, are from around $190 and are worth a look.
• Special: GME MT400 (406mhz) EPIRB on sale, $449.95 while stocks last.
