Weekly Report 27/8/08

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Aug 27, 2008 4:08 pm

On the beaches, there are a few nice bream to be had although as has been the case pretty well all winter, conditions turned pear-shaped just in time for last weekend. While beach anglers are somewhat conditioned to having a bit of time out due to strong winds, big swells, etc, this winter has been the worst I can recall for many years. Any permanent deep water close in has been notably absent this season. Let’s just hope the summer nor’-easters arrive early this season, some solid structure develops and the fish hang around a little later, as they did last season. If not, I suggest keen beach fishos start experimenting with new and creative salmon recipes.
Off the rocks, drummer remain patchy but a few anglers are managing the odd nice fish. Point Plomer and surrounding headlands have again been the pick. Tailor numbers have been reasonable. Blackfish remain excellent.
In the estuary, the water is running quite clear with a good drop of rain now needed to add colour and stir the action. Blackfish remain consistent, with good catches reported from both breakwalls, the coal wall and areas further upstream. Bream numbers in the estuary have also been a little slow but the tides this weekend are excellent for a night session. Flathead numbers have been reasonable with whitebait and prawns the most successful baits. Expect the flathead action to begin to pick up considerably as the water begins to warm over the next month or so.
Outside reports have been fairy quiet, with the strong winds and big seas seeing most stay put until early in the week. Those venturing out after the winds continue to report excellent snapper off the closer reefs, with Jason Sewell scoring a top 8.37kg fish close off Lake Cathie on a strip of sergeant baker.
