Weekly Report 21/11/07

In the estuaries, flathead continue to be the best bet with the Hastings and tributaries producing excellent bags of quality fish. Best catches have come from around the Dennis Bridge while Settlement Point and Blackmans Point are both worth a throw. The discoloured water has also seen some excellent bream action around the breakwalls with gut baits producing well. Whiting have somewhat quiet although Lake Cathie is still producing consistent results. I expect the action throughout the Hastings to pick up considerably once some warm clean water begins to push right back up the system. There are still a few reasonable blackfish around the coal wall and south wall, although you have to work reasonably hard for average results.
On the beaches, results have been quite mixed. They are yet to fully re-form. Best results have come from North Beach with the whiting quality and quantity as good as we have seen for several seasons. A few nice bream are also on offer although their condition is generally poor. Still no real signs of tailor although a few isolated fish have been taken on the southern end of Lighthouse and off the beaches to the south of Port. Salmon numbers are beginning to dwindle although the odd school is still around to either excite or annoy, depending upon your preference.
Off the rocks, little to report in the way of tailor with the odd brief session here and there the only real action. Early morning and late afternoon high tides are well worth a throw for bream, with Point Plomer still giving up some excellent fish for those putting in the time. A few nice blackfish around Shelleys and Lighthouse.
Offshore action has begun to pick up with some terrific snapper last weekend, highlighted by a red of 8.67kg taken by Bob Dennington. Those enjoying soft plastics report terrific results on fish between 2kg and 4kg as well as the odd bigger specimen. Plenty of other mixed reef species on offer but word has it there are still plenty of annoying small leatherjackets. Last weekend a few small yellowfin tuna were out wide, along with a few big lone mahi mahi. No real action on billfish apart from isolated sightings or hook-ups.
