Weekly Report 6/06/07

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Jun 06, 2007 9:09 am

On the beaches, bream numbers have begun to improve noticeably, with Lighthouse Beach and around Laurieton giving up a couple of excellent bags before the weed moved in. Tailor continue to be a little quiet, although there are enough reasonable quality fish around to keep you interested. Little to report on the mulloway front, although a few rumours regarding school jew around Lake Cathie have begun to surface. Best bet for all species is to be prepared to travel and look for the weed-free locations.
In the estuaries, flathead action remains excellent with good fish coming from most parts of the lower reaches. Reports also suggest there are excellent numbers of bream beginning to feed in the lower parts of the system, with the coming dark likely to produce solid results. Mullet gut and yabbies will be the baits of choice. Blackfish numbers are reasonable but quality green weed remains in short supply. If you can’t get hold of weed, cabbage is well worth a go, particularly around the breakwalls. Further upstream, still a few good muddies around for the keen crabbers and the crabs are in top condition and as full as possible.
Off the rocks, drummer numbers continue to improve despite the mass of sand. Ledges to the south have produced the better results. The cooling water can have a considerable effect on the local pig population, turning them on like a switch, so now is the time to begin some serious prospecting. Shelleys and Miners have been worth a look, although Lighthouse generally produces well early in the season. Tailor numbers remain solid with Point Plomer and surrounds producing some quality greenbacks, albeit not in consistent numbers. A few big winter bream are also around the washes, with evening and early morning sessions producing the better results, particularly around Big Hill and Plomer.
Offshore, when conditions allow snapper and pearl perch are on offer, along with excellent numbers of kingfish but the current remains a day-to-day proposition. The flathead grounds are also reported to be fishing exceptionally well, with the 50m to 55m mark producing an excellent class of fish.
