Weekly Report 27/3/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 27, 2009 2:42 pm

On the beaches, results remain above average despite the lack of any real formations on Lighthouse and North beaches. Bream have been consistent after dark around the top of the tide with live worms achieving results. Those throwing worm are continuing to encounter plenty of juvenile mulloway. Many are throwbacks but the odd better fish is among them. Tailor have been reasonable albeit a little inconsistent, whilst the same could be said for whiting. The beach scene looks significantly more promising than in recent years.
Off the rocks, tailor and bream are increasingly common, with Lighthouse producing some solid bags. Point Plomer and surrounds have given up some better quality fish. Blackfish numbers are solid, with a few reports of the odd drummer. Plenty of small mulloway. When releasing these juvenile fish take care as they are a little fragile. LBG results remain below expectations, with a few longtail tuna and cobia on occasions. This next couple of weeks is when you should really be putting in the effort.
In the estuary, blackfish have begun to pick up with the South Wall fishing quite well, although the fish have not been in terrific condition. A few nice bream remain on offer, particularly for those fishing the walls after dark. Limeburners and Settlement Point have produced some nice fish. Flathead have been the big surprise, with excellent numbers throughout the lower reaches. The breakwalls have produced plenty of fish of 40cm to 60cm.
Offshore reports have been above average with excellent snapper to around 5 kilos from the close reefs off Lighthouse and Lake Cathie, while Plomer continues to produce excellent mixed bags for those who drift. Wider out, leatherjackets have come in, so keep wire handy. Barries Bay has begun to pick up with cobia to around 25 kilos and a few isolated longtails. Live slimies, yakkas or pike have been the offerings of choice.
