Weekly Report 18/7/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 18, 2008 11:36 am

Off the rocks, excellent reports of drummer continue from almost everywhere. Hat Head is still reported to be fishing particularly well, with Point Perpendicular, Diamond Head and most ledges around Plomer also giving nice bags over the past week. Rockys, Shelley and Miners have all produced fish albeit not quite as consistently as over recent weeks. Bream numbers remain solid, fish to a kilo taken from around Plomer on tailor strips. The tailor action has been a little patchy but there remain enough fish in the kilo-plus bracket to keep the pillie or lure tossers amused. Evening sessions floating a pillie under a lit bobby cork could well result in some bumper greenbacks after dark. For those willing to brave the pigs and float a bit of cabbage, blackfish numbers and quality remain excellent, as they been pretty well all season to date.
On the beaches the structure and results continue to improve courtesy of an extended run of reasonable sea conditions. The large high tides see very little beach left in many places. Best reports from North Beach, with good numbers of bream to a kilo. Tailor have been from around Crowdy and Laurieton, although expect a few salmon to punctuate most sessions.
In the estuary, blackfish have hit their straps with the quality and consistency the best we have seen this year. The breakwalls, coal wall and Limeburners have been fishing well although areas further upstream should soon be worth closer investigation. Flathead numbers remain quite good with Blackmans Point and the flats around Pelican Island well worth a go. Bream remain solid although the bright moon may see them a little fickle.
Offshore reports indicate the leatherjackets have multiplied and grown, with wire now an absolute essential. If you wish to avoid them, fish wider than 85m or shallower than 30m. The closer reefs are worth prospecting for snapper, with some top fish coming from around 30m off Plomer. A trip to the shelf in search of yellowfin could be worthwhile, as good numbers have been around in past years at this time.
