23/8/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Aug 23, 2006 2:56 pm

On the rocks, drummer have continued to perform quite well with most local ledges producing. Lighthouse, Miners, Shelley and Blueface are all well worth a go, while those who have travelled to Point Plomer, Diamond Head or Point Perpendicular have generally been well rewarded. Tailor quality remains exceptional, particularly off the ledges north of Port, although the numbers have thinned out a little. A few nice bream have also been taken during the darker hours, while plenty of blackfish are about the washes for those floating a bit of cabbage.
On the beaches, salmon numbers have thinned out a little but don’t be surprised if this is the calm before the storm. Remember that recent seasons have seen reasonable numbers remain until close to Christmas. Tailor numbers remain patchy, although what fish are about are certainly above average in quality. Perhaps the best improvers over the week have been bream, with North Beach and the top end of Lighthouse fishing well. In the main the fish are in typically poor post-spawning condition and most are under 30cm so are not worth keeping. Jewfish numbers have been reasonable with a few solid schoolies to around 10kg reported by those fishing the evening tides.
Estuary angling has been excellent over the past week with plenty of flathead on offer. Look for these fish to begin to become even more active as the estuaries slowly warm. Good numbers of bream have also been in the lower reaches with the night high tide producing by far the better results. Reasonable numbers of blackfish remain, although the action is now beginning to spread throughout the system with anywhere from the tip of the walls to well up the Maria worth a look.
Offshore, still plenty of leatherjackets around although not in the numbers of recent weeks. Bottom bouncers have reported good numbers of small kingfish and samson fish, particularly around Trag Rock, while most reefs have been holding reasonable numbers of pearl perch and snapper to around 3kg. Plenty of quality flatties on offer for those drifting the sand in around 55m.
