Weekly Report 18/04/07

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Apr 18, 2007 12:03 pm

On the beaches, bream numbers have been a little inconsistent but there have been some top fish to around 1.5kg. Whiting remain reasonable with Lighthouse and North Beach still producing some reasonable fish. Tailor have remained consistent without being spectacular, with most local beaches producing a reasonable run of choppers and the occasional greenback. mulloway remain a little quiet, although a few better than average fish have been encountered by those throwing tailor slabs. The southern end of Lighthouse has formed up well and is worth a look, while the beaches around Camden Haven have also produced fish. Still plenty of vermin about pestering night anglers but they should begin to thin out over the next few weeks.
In the estuary, bream have shown a significant improvement. Best results have been around the coal wall and up Limeburners and with the new moon now upon us, look for this action to pick up further. Blackfish have also been quite good but still tend to be a little inconsistent at times. Flathead remain viable options and while perhaps not as thick as in recent weeks, the quality has certainly been excellent. A few good whiting are also still about, with the back channel and Limeburners producing some nice fish. There are stacks of mullet in the lower reaches and this has not gone unnoticed by the mulloway. Now is the time you should be sending a livie out from the breakwalls during the change of tide.
Off the rocks, tailor numbers and quality are excellent with the Lighthouse, Point Plomer and ledges further south worth investigating. Bream are on the improve and should be well worth targeting over coming weeks. Drummer are rather quiet but the odd fish has been taken from Plomer and Big Hill. Still plenty of longtail tuna about, with those putting in the time snaring the odd fish. Hat Head and Point Perpendicular remain the most viable options.
Offshore fishing has been excellent with bottom species and pelagics filling fish boxes. Snapper, pearl perch and kingfish have been common, while excellent numbers of samson fish have been stretching the arms. We have had several reports of small leatherjacket plagues, so it may pay to have the wire traces organised a little earlier this season. Closer in, there are still plenty of cobia to 20kg around Barries Bay, along with good numbers of mack tuna and the odd longtail tuna.
