Weekly Report 3/11/06

In the estuary, flathead numbers remain excellent throughout and should further improve as the water warms. Best results have been around Limeburners and the Dennis Bridge and the Maria has also produced good fish. Bream have also been reasonable with better results now from areas upstream, most notably around Rawdon Island. Whiting continue to improve daily, as do the flathead. For those keen on chasing whiting, Blackmans Point, up the Maria and the Back Channel are all worth a go with yabbies or live worms.
On the beaches, red weed has once again reared its ugly head, with most beaches north of Laurieton severely or partially impacted on a day-to-day basis. The weed seems to shifting noticeably in line with the currents and wind, which means certain beaches may be unfishable one day but clean the next. The bad news is that the weed overall is increasing so this summer looks like being every bit as bad as last year. At least there are a few quality fish about, with Lighthouse giving up some nice bream and increasing numbers of whiting. Further south, Grants Beach continues to produce the odd mulloway and a few tailor have begun to return after an extended absence. Salmon remain common and if nothing else, at least provide decent sport in between the more palatable targets.
Off the rocks, a few more tailor are on offer although catches are spasmodic, as is the size, with most bags a mixture of choppers and the occasional good fish. Night anglers continue to pick up a few reasonable bream with Big Hill and Racecourse producing fish. The odd pig is still around but the constant nor’-easters have seen many of the better ledges begin to sand up.
Little to report from offshore with this week again providing only reasonable conditions at best. A few snapper and flathead have been snared from close off Plomer, while wider reefs to the north continue to hold the odd king, jew, pearlie and other assorted reef species. The main challenge out wide has been the current, which has been steaming down from the north at a rate of knots. No real action as yet on pelagics apart from the odd mahi mahi at the FAD but the waters are beginning to warm nicely.
