Weekly Report 4/12/08

In the rivers, flathead numbers remain excellent, with fish again taken from most areas between the breakwalls and Beechwood. Pick of the baits have been whitebait, yabbies or prawns, while all manner of lures have proven effective. Whiting numbers and quality are also on the improve, particularly around Blackmans Point and up the Maria. Live worms and yabbies are the morsels of choice, while for lure tossers, poppers and surface walkers are proving deadly. Bream numbers have been a little patchy, with best results achieved during daylight hours on lures, or by soaking a live yabby at night, particularly with little weight and hooks around size 4 or smaller. This rig has also been scoring some terrific blackfish to around a kilo.
Off the beaches, a few isolated chopper tailor have begun to show up although not in large numbers. No shortage of salmon. Bream, while not thick, have included some solid fish to around a kilo. A few nice whiting although the dart can be a pest at times. No mulloway.
Off the rocks, the odd tailor although with the exception of a couple of greenbacks off Hungry Head last weekend, most are choppers. The odd bream and blackfish, just enough pigs to keep the real tragics interested. We have heard a few whispers regarding cobia from around Hat Head.
Offshore fishing has been quite good although the current has been a tad stronger than most would like. Snapper have been reasonable with fish to around 6kg on baits and lures from south of Port. Off Plomer, samson fish are still around in good numbers, along with improved kingfish, although plenty undersize.
