Weekly Report 3/10/07

On the beaches, the excellent run of bream continues although many fish are now beginning to lose condition following the completion of their spawning run. Best results, and the better quality fish, have come from the beaches south around Laurieton and Crowdy. Lighthouse and in front of Lake Cathie yielding increasing numbers well conditioned whiting. The hardest part has been getting a bait past the masses of salmon which are now more prevalent than they have been all season. Tailor remain elusive at best, as are mulloway, although it may be worth noting that October and November last year fished as well as the winter months for these.
In the estuary, flathead continue to improve daily with terrific numbers of fish from most locations. Some reasonable whiting are beginning to show up around Blackmans Point and up the Maria, with live worms and yabbies by far the best baits. Bream were a little quieter during the full moon although dawn sessions from the breakwalls have yielded a steady stream of fish. Still plenty of blackfish around with both breakwalls and Limeburners producing fish.
Off the rocks, tailor remain quiet although a few fish have been snared at daylight on pillies and lures, particularly from the ledges around Point Plomer and Hungry Head. Drummer have quietened in comparison to recent weeks but a few anglers continue to manage a fish or two. Some good groper continue to be taken around Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head. Bream remain viable targets and should improve.
Offshore conditions have begun to settle with fishable seas on most days. Snapper have been excellent with plenty of fish to around 3kg on bait and soft plastic challenges from about 15m to 30m. A few yellowfin tuna remain on offer although you may need plenty of fuel to get out to them. The FAD should be redeployed soon.
