Weekly Report 18/3/10

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Mar 18, 2010 1:20 pm

The worst-kept secret is that the grounds off Grassy Head and Scotts Head are loaded with spotted and Spanish mackerel. It was like a car park up there last week with a good number of boats catching their bag of spotties. Live bait has been working well but if unavailable, a floating pilchard has proved just as successful on your wire rig. Most of the action has been on the northern reefs but there are mahi mahi off the FAD if you are looking for something different. Mack tuna and bonito are still in good numbers in front of the Jail. Fish Rock has been fishing well for kingfish with some nice fish amongst them. We have had a few wahoo about with Ken Short holidaying here landing a classic 15kg unit. Hat Head has had the odd Spanish about while Cobia are still on the bite. For the snapper blokes we have no reports this week, must be all chasing the spotties.
I had a learning experience last week chasing bream casting in the middle of oyster leases with poppers. It’s not for the faint hearted but well worth it, you can lose lures but it is a rush (thanks, Ted). Remember, it is illegal to tie up or rest on these leases. There have been some nice flathead and good bream along the breakwalls with flathead and whiting up through the Stuarts Point arm. Whiting are up river again to Kinchela with a few flathead lurking as well. School jew have been caught from the boatshed to Jerseyville bridge.
Smoky beach has fished well for whiting for most of the week with live worms. There have been tailor along the beach but mostly before first light.
This definitely has been a great week’s fishing, let’s hope the cyclones do not cut it short.
