Weekly Report 11/4/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 11, 2008 12:16 pm

Off the beaches, conditions have deteriorated somewhat over the past few days with constant south-easterly winds and above-average swells. Before the weather turned, there was a terrific showing of quality bream to 1.5kg. Best results have been from the beaches south of Port. If we get sufficient rain to dirty up the estuaries, don’t be surprised if the beaches begin to produce big numbers a bit earlier this year than generally expected. Tailor numbers remain consistent although there are plenty of choppers among the quality fish. A few mulloway are beginning to show up, although sharks are proving a pest for those fishing slabs or livies after dark.
Off the rocks, tailor remain solid with Point Plomer the pick of locations. Bream numbers are well up, as is the quality. Blackfish numbers are excellent don’t be surprised if the big seas drive more schools into the estuaries. Those drifting a bit of cabbage around the rocks also report plenty of drummer encounters. The longtail action has slowed from recent weeks, although there is still plenty of bait around and quite a few predators for those willing to put in the time.
In the estuaries, the cooler change has begun move the mullet down to the lower reaches in readiness for their annual trip to sea, which could well begin a little earlier this year if conditions are right. Bream have been above average with yabbies, gut and flesh baits proving successful. Flathead numbers remain solid with the soft plastic tossers encountering good numbers of fish and those using whitebait also doing well. Blackfish remain encouraging for so early in the season with a few nice fish coming from the walls on cabbage.
Offshore, the big seas kept boaties at home for most of the week but some reasonable fish have been encountered when conditions allowed. Best results have been on the closer reefs for snapper, but the odd mulloway has been showing up, especially on live slimy mackerel. Still a few cobia about in close, with longtail tuna also on offer.
