Weekly Report 23/05/07

Post by Tony Zann » Wed May 23, 2007 11:49 am

On the beaches, fishing is steadily improving and most beaches are holding fair formations, courtesy of a sustained period of quite calm seas. These calm seas have seen several massive schools of mullet travelling close in with the supporting cast of dolphins and sharks feasting on them. While the waters remain quite warm and inviting, I would not be recommending a dip anywhere near where these schools. Lighthouse Beach has been producing some nice bream and a steady stream of tailor, while North Beach has fished well for both species as well as a few late season whiting. Mulloway have been rather quiet but the upcoming full moon should see catches improve.
Off the rocks, tailor remain excellent, with Lighthouse, Miners and Shelleys all producing good feeds with Point Plomer and surrounds holding better quality fish. Local angler Craig Mulley weighed a terrific 4.65kg greenback and caught several fish not much smaller. Night anglers report increasing numbers of bream and the odd mulloway following the mullet or tailor schools. Not much to report on the drummer scene, with most favoured locations quite sanded up and in dire need of a big and sustained southerly swell.
In the estuary, bream numbers are improving and should be close to their best after the coming full moon. Flathead numbers remain excellent with quality fish on offer from all point between Wauchope and the walls. Whitebait and lures have produced. Blackfish numbers are reasonable. Still plenty of muddies about for those keen enough to brave the cool nights chasing them.
Offshore, some terrific snapper have been on offer with fish to around 3kg common. Many of these fish have been extracted from deeper waters, with the lack of current and calm days helping. A few good pearl perch have been taken from around the 85m mark, while up north some kings above 10kg have been testing the backs of those chasing them. With the odd patch of 23°-plus water, a few late season marlin and mahi mahi are certainly not out of the question.
