Weekly Report 20/2/08

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Feb 20, 2008 12:02 pm

The beaches have good numbers of bream with quantity and quality excellent. Whiting remain reasonable although perhaps not as consistent as they have been. Tailor remain elusive, although there are encouraging reports from the beaches south of Port. No sensational reports on mulloway although the odd fish has been taken from North Haven and Lake Cathie.
Off the rocks, reasonable numbers of bream have been taken, with Point Plomer and Lighthouse fishing well, particularly at night. The current full moon will likely see better results on morning sessions. Pick of the baits have been mullet and tailor strips. Tailor have been reasonable with Point Plomer and surrounds achieving results, although Lighthouse should not be overlooked. A few encouraging blackfish reports from Point Perpendicular and Lewis Rock together with the odd drummer. No real LBG news although the arrival of better numbers of sea garfish is a good indication that improved action is not far away.
In the estuary, bream numbers throughout the lower reaches have been excellent, as is often the case when the river is significantly off colour. Flathead numbers to have been solid with juvenile fish abundant. A few blackfish from the coal wall and surrounds, although results are patchy. Garfish numbers are excellent around Pelican Island.
It will be interesting see how the Lake Cathie prawns go this dark. Last month saw a significant improvement in numbers, although the quality was questionable. A few solid muddies remain active in the Hastings despite the dirty water.
Outside, bottom-bouncers continue to score mixed bags of reef species with snapper to 6kg, kingfish to 8kg and some solid samson fish taken from off Plomer. Those venturing out to the FAD report plenty of mahi mahi although plenty of juveniles. Barries Bay is beginning to produce a few better cobia.
