12/1/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Jan 12, 2006 2:03 pm

This past week has seen quite unstable weather with hot and humid days, blustery winds and big seas. Unfortunately this weather often coincides with the Golden Lure tournament.
Offshore the Golden Lure has been the focus of the week, however conditions have been such that few boats have managed to get outside. Catches have been disappointing with few billfish raised and little else apart from the odd big mahi mahi. Those who did venture out on Saturday had a most uncomfortable day. For anglers just seeking a casual spot of bottom bouncing the few days have been reasonably productive with snapper, morwong, pearl perch and flatties filling most boxes. The reefs off Point Plomer continue to hold excellent numbers of kingfish. Be mindful the minimum size is 60cm and the bag limit five per angler.
Off the beaches, at long last we are beginning to see the red weed clear to some degree after nearly a month of virtually unfishable waters. Lighthouse been reasonably clean with the top end producing terrific numbers of whiting ane a few reasonable bream. North Haven and Dunbogan have begun to clear, with bream and whiting your best bets. North Beach and Bonny Hills remain inundated but the weed is beginning to disperse. This weekend is prime mulloway time so if conditions are reasonable and you can find good water you will have an excellent chance.
The weed has begun to disperse from the estuaries and catches have improved. Whiting have been star attractions with excellent numbers taken from Limeburners, the Maria and around Pelican Island. It is disappointing to hear numerous reports of bag and size limits not being adhered to. Blackfish have improved a little with a few reasonable fish being taken from the coal wall. Bream have been quite solid with areas upstream continuing to fare well for lure-tossers. Flathead are as thick as they have been all summer on lures and bait.
