Weekly Report 16/9/09

In the estuary, flathead appear the best bet with reasonable numbers at most locations. Good fish from Limeburners, Blackmans Point, Rawdon Island and basically anywhere in between. Bream continue to be relatively quiet although the odd fish is still around. Rumour has it the Maria is fishing better for blackfish than it has for some time and certainly more consistently than the Port breakwalls and lower reaches. Some above-average mulloway around Wauchope, try upsizing your lure and you will likely find a better grade of fish.
On the beaches, school mulloway remain most common with live worms after dark irresistible. A few bream have been caught although not in great numbers. Tailor remain terrible, as they have been all year, and the even the salmon are well down on recent seasons.
Off the rocks, drummer have been a little quiet but a few anglers continue to manage a fish or two each outing, with Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head the pick locations. Tailor remain a viable option, with those who fished north last weekend picking up a couple of reasonable bags. A few bream at night from around Plomer, along with any number of juvenile mulloway.
Outside, we are now beginning to get the first pushes of warmer water from the north, with the water now approaching 20° in places. The current is an unfishable 3 knots on some days so most boaties have worked hard for only average returns on most reef species. The exceptions have been kingfish and pearl perch, with some great pearlies to around 3kg off Plomer, with kings over 10kg on the wide reefs. Closer in, undersize rat kings are common around Trag Rock. Leatherjacket numbers and quality are down but there are still enough small models in 60m to 70m to make a pest of themselves.
