Weekly Report 18/11/10

SOUTH WEST ROCKS
More rain, more dirty north-easterlies –we must be due for some stable weather soon. Early last week there were some cracker pearl perch caught off Scotts Head. There are a number of small trag about with the odd snapper off Grassy in fairly close. The current is running down south at a rate of knots, bringing some warmer water with it. Fish Rock has been fishing well for kingfish. Most are small but there are some around 8kg or 9kg. Out wide has not been an option so the results from the FAD and wider are unknown. There is plenty of live bait out there so when the conditions come good, it should start to fire up.
There will be more fresh in the river after the latest drenching but it hasn’t put the whiting off the bite with some good results coming from Jerseyville to Smithtown. Through The Cut towards Stuarts Point, flathead have been in good numbers. The size is not really there, they are just good pan size. There have been some nice bream along the breakwall taking live worms, mullet and whitebait. Clybucca has been producing some good flathead and whiting on a run-out tide. Herring are gun bait for these flathead.
Smoky Beach has a huge sweep at the moment, which is making it tough to fish. There have been a few whiting and bream on the beach if you can put up with the conditions.
More on the Fish Rock lockout: On November 27 there will be a flotilla protest around the Rock and hopefully we will have a large number of boats in tow. Media have been organised and will be there on the day.
