Report 11/6/19

Post by Nicole Penfold » Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:20 am

Wasn’t it great to see some sublime weather over the Queens birthday long weekend. As you would expect, anglers young and old were out taking advantage of these fantastic conditions, with some terrific action enjoyed from most parts.

In the estuaries, some of the best bream action of the year is now underway with most locations in the lower reaches fishing well. As you would expect, the break walls are as good a place as any to wet a line, although Limeburners will certainly be worth a look particularly after dark. Best results have been achieved using either live yabbies or gut baits, although mullet strips seem to be accounting for some of the better quality fish. Day time anglers have also been scoring some nice fish, with soft vibes working very well indeed. Also on offer have been some nice flathead, with whitebait and most lure profiles seeing good results. Best reports have come from around Pelican Island and Hibbard. Still quite a few mulloway about, with both break walls certainly worth a look, particularly from the latter part of this week onward when the tides are favourable for an early evening session. On the blackfish front, results have been a little subdued although the break walls produced a few really nice fish during last weeks bit of swell.

Off the rocks, bream numbers have been solid as you expect at this time of year. Most ledges around Plomer and Big Hill have been producing fish, as has Miners locally. Blackfish numbers also remain excellent with it appearing the bulk of the fish are yet to enter the nearby estuaries. On the drummer front, despite last weeks swell not removing a lot of built up sand, some nice fish were taken around Hat Head and Big Hill. This action should improve as the water further cools and a few more decent southerlies blow through. On the tailor front, results have been consistent if not spectacular, with Lighthouse locally again as good as anywhere.

On the beaches, bream numbers have picked up as expected at this time of year. Best baits have been either mullet strips, pipis or beach worms, with Lighthouse in particular worth prospecting. On the tailor front, North Haven has been quite consistent although most beaches have held fish. The tides this weekend are excellent for either morning or afternoon sessions. Look for an improvement on the mulloway front as well, with the tides and moon optimum over the weekend.

On the offshore scene, the seas last weekend were about as good as you could expect at this time of year, with plenty of vessels venturing out for both morning and evening sessions. John from Ocean Star Charters reports snapper have been consistent off most reefs, with pearl perch, pig fish and teraglin also about in reasonable numbers. A few kingfish and most welcome john dory were also encountered over the weekend. Whale numbers are also right up so keep your eyes peeled when heading out.
