Weekly Report 2/9/09

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Sep 02, 2009 3:27 pm

On the beaches, salmon are becoming increasingly common although nowhere near the levels of recent years. School mulloway numbers remain beyond anything seen for many years. Many are in the throwback category but the odd reasonable model is being reported. Bream numbers remain relatively poor, although early morning sessions coinciding with high tide saw the odd reasonable haul. A few rumours of sightings and possible captures of multiple numbers of tailor over the past week. If true, the 2009 tailor season is now at its peak!
Off the rocks, drummer remain reasonable on most local ledges but Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head have been the pick. Be prepared to be mobile and berleying heavily. Blackfish numbers remain excellent, with some bumper specimens locally and around Point Perpendicular. Tailor numbers have picked up a little with the occasional bumper specimen, particularly from Big Hill and surrounds. Bream remain viable targets early morning.
In the estuary, flathead numbers have begun to pick up with whitebait the pick bait. Soft plastics continue to achieve considerable success. Bream numbers reasonable, with better reports coming from further upstream. Blackfish numbers have dwindled over the past week but there is still the odd fish about. As a hint, a yabby pump could pay solid dividends.
Offshore, those who ventured out in blustery winds last weekend generally did quite well. Off Point Plomer, good numbers of pearl perch and a few snapper in around 40m. Wider out, kingfish to 10kg were encountered on livies or jigs. Off Lighthouse, snapper have been solid with plastics and baits enjoying good success. Leatherjackets have thinned noticeably but are still a factor if you plan to go wider than 60m.
