Weekly report 4/09/07

Post by Tony Zann » Tue Sep 04, 2007 6:54 pm

On the beaches, tailor and mulloway remain most disappointing but some excellent bream have been on offer on live worms and pipis. Beaches to the north of Port are producing better results. Salmon are thick in places and when the bulk of the schools arrive, there will some terrific sport to be had but those looking to score a feed of more palatable species may have their work cut out. The real bad news for beach fishos is that red weed has made an early appearance. At present there are only a few isolated patches here and there, courtesy of the easterly winds, but this does not augur well for the months ahead.
Off the rocks, drummer remain consistent with reasonable numbers for those willing to put in the time. Most local ledges are producing, especially Lighthouse and Rocky. The key is to be mobile and berley a little often rather than a lot infrequently. Blackfish numbers remain solid with some bumper specimens being snared locally and around Point Perpendicular on cabbage and cunjevoi. Bream remain reasonable with still the odd bumper specimen about, particularly from Plomer, Crescent Head and surrounds. Tailor remain patchy, although of excellent quality.
In the estuary, flathead are excellent. Whitebait has been the pick bait while soft plastics continue to achieve considerable success. Bream numbers have been excellent, with evening sessions from the walls producing well despite the full moon. Gut baits have enjoyed particular success. Both walls continue to fish well for blackfish to around a kilo. Lake Cathie has begun to produce again as the water clears from the rain of recent weeks. A few solid whiting have begun the reappear in the lower reaches of the lake. In the absence of live prawns, worms and yabbies have been the morsels of choice.
Offshore, snapper numbers and quality have been excellent, particularly from the closer reefs off Lake Cathie. Wider out, leatherjackets remain difficult to avoid but the quality is up and the numbers down a little.
