Weekly Report 22/4/10

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Apr 22, 2010 2:04 pm

Warm water and strong currents have been the order of the day and last week was no exception. The FAD is producing Dolphin Fish in around four knots of current with the odd King Fish out of the same area. In closer to Grassy Head Spotted Mackerel are still in good numbers but very finiky Fisho’s are trying to go with out the wire causing lots of bust off’s. There were no signs of Spanish last week but one or two Trag were on the bite on the bottom. The DOT has been productive with some nice Pearl Perch, Morwong and the odd Snapper. Heading south Green Island has Bream and Tailor around it while Fish Rock produced Snapper and some good Kings. Black Rock gave up a few Cobia last week. Live Slimies have been near impossible to catch there are some yakas about which are worth a shot on the Kings. One visitor hooked a striped Marlin around 70 kilo on a Knife Jig out wider in about 4 knots of current.
Tailor and Bonito are on the end of the Break Wall in good numbers with the odd Bream. There have been a few Flathead coming in off the Tavern with some Whiting as well. Jew Fish are about with a 12 kilo and 20 kilo unit caught in the river last week on live bait. School Jew and Whiting are on the bite from Jerseyville to Kinchela taking live worms. Dust of your Black Fish gear they are on their way in the river system, I just hope the netters give them a break this season.
Some nice Tailor are off the rocks out of most locations with Bonito and small Kings down at Hat Head. Smoky and Gap Beach are fishing well for Tailor, Whiting and Bream.
