Weekly Report 15/03/07

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Mar 15, 2007 12:17 pm

On the beaches, tailor numbers are improving daily with plenty of choppers and the odd greenback for those fishing dawn or dusk, with Lighthouse and beaches further south enjoying the better results. This action should further improve over the next couple of months, especially if the bait schools hang around as they did last season. Simply look for the dive bombing birds and throw lures, pillies or whitebait and you generally won’t miss out. A few nice whiting have been off the top end of Lighthouse, while night sessions on the lower end of North Beach have produced bream. If the bait schools thicken up and the tailor hang around, fish that area with fresh tailor slabs or heads for mulloway.
Off the rocks, tailor are on the improve with Lighthouse around Flagstaff the pick. Bream numbers remain reasonable, particularly around Point Plomer, while Lighthouse, Shelly and Miners have a few blackfish. A few nice mulloway have also been encountered around the full moon, highlighted by Ryan Milich’s fish of 22kg taken on light tailor gear.
In the estuary, blackfish remain above average with plenty of fish over a kilo from the breakwalls and lower Limeburners Creek. Flathead numbers remain excellent, particularly around Rawdon Island and the Dennis Bridge. A few bream have been around the walls at night. Plenty of muddies are still around for those keen enough to hang around and guard their traps or dillies for a few hours after dark.
Offshore, access remains a day-to-day proposition with the weather continuing to be quite unstable. Some nice snapper have been snared close in, while the wider reefs continue to produce good mixed bags of kingfish, pearl perch and most common reef species. Small black marlin remain close in off Plomer with the odd cobia and mahi mahi cruising the currents. NSW Fisheries has deployed a replacement FAD at the same location as the original which went AWOL some time back. Co-ordinates are: S31° 24.567, E 153° 04.725.
