Weekly Report 15/4/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 15, 2011 1:13 pm

What a difference a week can make .The ocean has been a millpond but unfortunately the current has dropped off and Grassy through the week was straight up and down, which made it hard to pull a spotted mackerel. Later in the week they started to appear again in small numbers. Smaller snapper have been off the close grounds while there has been some cracker pearl perch coming in from the same area. There were a few Spanish about, with a few caught off Grassy, the Jail Grounds and Hat Head. Fishos have sighted cobia but there were no reports of catches last week. Slimies were easier to get, which is good news for Easter. Fish Rock is still closed but Mr Stoner is standing by his statement to reverse the decision and will commence a new study into the grey nurse risk from recreational fishermen.
The highlight of the river has been the school jew appearing along the breakwall again taking live baits and any number of lures. Land-based fishos are having trouble getting a feed from the river with the flathead and good bream not playing the game. If you have a boat Clybucca, Stuarts Point and Rainbow will need some work to get a feed. Sometimes it’s worth a change and chase some bass past Smithtown for some great action, they’re not big but pound for pound you know you’ve got them on. Kinchela has been fairly productive for whiting on worms and nippers.
There has been a good run of bream on Smoky Beach using worms. Whiting are there but it’s hard to get a keeper. Gap Beach has bream and the odd tailor while Back and Main Beach have been quiet.
