Weekly Report 24/9/08

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Sep 24, 2008 9:47 am

In the estuary, bream remain above expectations with good fish available for those willing to put in the time. Both breakwalls and Limeburners Creek have fished well, although those focusing further upstream with lures also report solid numbers. Blackfish have been reasonable, with Limeburners and the Coal Wall producing a few nice bags. Night sessions around the weed beds with yabbies have also been productive. Flattie numbers continue to improve with pretty well all areas downstream of Rawdon Island producing fish. The lower reaches of the Hastings have also begun to produce a few better quality whiting, although there are plenty of throwbacks amongst the better fish.
On the beaches we are enjoying an excellent run of late season bream, with pretty well all stretches of sand from Crowdy to Crescent Head producing fish in varying quantities and quality. Some reasonable whiting have begun to show up, with live worms doing all the damage. The odd stray mulloway around Laurieton. There are still plenty of salmon about.
On the rocks, drummer numbers remain steady with Point Plomer, Hat Head and Diamond Head all continuing to yield quality fish. With many of the fish yet to spawn, you should be able to chase a feed of pigs for a few more weeks yet. A few tailor have shown up for those keen to rise well before 5am, while evening sessions have yielded a few bream. Still a few solid groper on offer for those willing to float a few crabs when the seas are flat.
The close reefs off Point Plomer and Lake Cathie continue to produce top quality reds, while slightly wider, pearl perch and plenty of morwong are on offer. Flatties remain thick on the sand drifts in around 50m. Leatherjacket swarms are beginning to thin but the odd patch is still hanging around the wider reefs, so don’t remove the wire just yet. Out wide a couple of solid mahi mahi have been caught on trolled skirts and livies. Closer in, there are mackerel tuna in large numbers.
