Weekly Report 13/11/07

Post by Tony Zann » Tue Nov 13, 2007 5:49 pm

The good rain has improved angling throughout the estuaries. Last Friday night’s deluge put a reasonable fresh downstream and angling has picked up. Bream numbers were up in the lower reaches, particularly around the breakwalls. Live yabbies and gut baits were particularly successful, although competitors in the BREAM Classic grand final enjoyed improved rewards on soft plastics and hard lures. Flathead numbers have also been excellent with any location downstream of the Dennis Bridge producing good numbers of quality fish. Whiting have quietened and the fresh was insufficient to fire the mulloway up off the breakwalls. For those keen on chasing a few crabs, the muddies should be on fire following this fresh, while a few positive reports on blue swimmers have begun to filter through.
On the beaches, the consistent seas have flattened most formations. Although this makes life difficult in the short term, you don’t necessarily need a significant amount of structure on a beach to attract and hold fish. You just need to be prepared to move around and seek sections that look different, whether that involves a small sand spit, hole or gutter. Still no news on the tailor front, although with the salmon run due to taper off shortly, a few choppers should come in soon.
Off the rocks, a few more tailor are now on offer although catches are spasmodic, as is the size, with most bags a mixture of choppers and the occasional good fish. Night anglers continue to pick up a few reasonable bream, with Big Hill and Racecourse producing. The odd pig is still around for those willing to put in the time.
Little to report from offshore with the past week providing only reasonable conditions. A few snapper and flathead have been snared from close off Plomer while wider reefs to the north continue to give up the odd king, pearl perch and other assorted reef species.
