Weekly Report 7/5/10

Post by Tony Zann » Fri May 07, 2010 5:13 pm

The marine park issue has reared its ugly head once more to frustrate and anger responsible recreational fishers. Please take the time to sign the petition in our shop as well as at other locations around town because people power in the right direction is powerful message.
Spotted mackerel are still being caught in ones and twos off Grassy with guys having more success with live bait. Some nice trag have been coming out of the same area with the odd snapper. Out wider a few dolphin fish, pearl perch and the odd bar cod were landed last week. Cobia have been about from Grassy down to Hat Head with the majority coming from in front of the Jail. Fish Rock has a few kings in a fairly strong current. There were a few yellowfin tuna around 5kg caught last week, a run of these little torpedos would be excellent. Live bait is still not abundant but enough to keep you going.
Bass fishermen are in their element up around Frederickton and Smithtown, braining them with surface and shallow divers. Whiting are around the same location. Smaller bream are in good numbers around the oyster racks while some nice flathead were caught throughout the same area. School jew are along the breakwall with the odd good bream. Herring were tough to get last week but whitebait was doing the trick.
Rockhoppers are having some fun with tailor and bream with some nice jewfish in front of the Jail and off the ledges at Hat Head. Local beaches are full of dart with the odd whiting and bream. Smoky is fishing well for tailor early morning and on dusk.
