Weekly Report 6/03/07

Post by Tony Zann » Tue Mar 06, 2007 5:11 pm

On the beaches, the best news is the water is now pretty well weed-free, apart from the odd isolated patch here and there. But the biggest challenge faced over recent weeks has been the relentless current from the north, although the southerly blow earlier this week will go a long way towards straightening the swell out and slowing or even turning the current. This is great news for beachgoers as there are plenty of promising formations beginning to develop and enough action to warrant further investigation. Lighthouse and North beaches have started to fish more consistently for tailor, with the occasional fish to around 4kg mixed in with the average choppers. The Lower end of North Beach has also produced a few solid bream, mainly in the early evening before the moon gets too high. A few whiting have also been encountered on the shallower spits of Lighthouse, while a few rogue salmon are still cruising the waves to provide comic relief.
Off the rocks, plenty of blackfish are on offer with many locations now reasonably washed out for this time of year. Tailor are steadily on the improve with the morning sessions producing better results. Bream numbers remain reasonable around Lighthouse and Miners and should improve from here on given the moon is now on the wane and a bit of rough weather has stirred things up. Little to report from a land based game scene but if the seas allow the traditional ledges to be fished, expect the longtails and hopefully an improved showing of cobia and Spanish soon.
In the estuary, blackfish numbers and quality have been terrific, with the little bit of added colour paying big dividends. Both breakwalls and around the co-op are all worth prospecting. Flathead numbers remain reasonable with Blackmans Point, Limeburners and around Rawdon Island providing some nice lizards on bait and lures. Whiting remain somewhat quiet but the lower reaches around Pelican Island and the Back Channel are producing a few quality fish. The breakwalls are also worth a look if you are keen on tangling with a mulloway and with more mullet moving down to the lower reaches, this should only improve. Blue swimmers remain a bit disappointing in comparison to recent years but there are still heaps of muddies from the upper reaches.
Outside reports have been very quiet as expected with little access courtesy of the conditions. Some top fish have been on offer from the closer reefs with one local boat scoring several quality snapper and mulloway during an evening session immediately after the seas settled.
