Weekly Report 27/6/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jun 27, 2008 12:51 pm

On the beaches, bream numbers have been quite good. The quality is excellent with most fish very well conditioned. Tailor remain sporadic although those fishing at dawn have been scoring a few fish to around a kilo and the odd better specimen. Salmon are also beginning to become more prolific each day, with most fishos encountering a couple or more each outing. Reports indicate there have been a few large schools just offshore, so expect numbers to increase markedly in the next few weeks. Still not a lot of positive mulloway news but Grant Whitby broke his recent run of bad luck to score a 20kg fish from North Haven last week.
Off the rocks, drummer numbers have been excellent with last weekend seeing a few bag limit hauls from Point Plomer and Hat Head, while those fishing the local ledges also managed some top fish. Blackfish numbers remain solid, with some kilo-plus models. Most local ledges are producing regular tailor but the larger specimens have proven elusive.
In the estuary, bream numbers in the lower reaches have been better than expected over the full moon and the next few weeks should be excellent with gut baits, mullet strips or yabbies fished pretty well anywhere in the lower reaches likely to be successful. Flathead numbers remain excellent with whitebait proving the bait of choice. Plenty of blackfish around the breakwalls, much to the relief of the local diehards, many of whom are on edge if they are not achieving the odd bag limit haul by this time of year.
Offshore fishos continue to be frustrated by the winds and big seas. Those who have ventured out have been scoring some nice snapper in close, while wider out, leatherjackets have begun to make their presence felt. For those with suitable vessels, a trip to the shelf chasing yellowfin tuna could prove rewarding, as reports from other parts of coast with better sea conditions have been most encouraging.
