Weekly Report 19/09/07

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Sep 19, 2007 10:54 am

In the estuary, flathead continue to improve with terrific numbers of fish beginning to show up from most locations. Reports have come from Limeburners, Settlement Point, Blackmans Point, Rawdon Island and anywhere in between. Bream numbers remain well above average for this time of year, as does the quality. Best results have during evening sessions in Limeburners and around the coal wall, although we are getting increased reports from areas upstream. The breakwalls are continuing to produce blackfish, as is Lake Cathie. Given the vast numbers of fish removed this year, it is unlikely Lake Cathie anglers will see a run like that for quite some time. Some nice whiting are beginning to show at several locations downstream of the Dennis Bridge, with live worms and yabbies the best baits.
On the beaches, some nice bream to a kilo have been taken and a couple of double-figure bags have been achieved. Best results locally have come from North Beach during the mornings and there are also a few nice whiting. Tailor remain quiet although there is the odd fish to be had on evening or early morning sessions. Still plenty of salmon around. Mulloway remain elusive, as they have pretty well all year.
Off the rocks, drummer continue to be quite good with most anglers managing a fish or two each outing. Point Plomer continues the pick of locations bt a trip south to Diamond Head could prove rewarding. Good numbers of bream, especially at Point Plomer and Crescent Head. Tailor are inconsistent, although the odd reasonable greenback has been snared around Big Hill.
Outside, at last the focus has switched from leatherjackets to other species, with some quality snapper taken on bait and lures from the inshore reefs. Numerous fish above 3kg have been taken from the reefs off Cathie, Lighthouse and Plomer. Wider out, a few yellowfin tuna have begun to show up which will no doubt please the game fishing fraternity.
