Weekly Report 12/11/09

In the estuaries, with the system still quite dirty, the focus will be in the lower reaches, mostly along the breakwalls. A few mulloway have been taken from the breakwalls on lures, although results have not been astounding. It would seem we didn’t get quite enough fresh coming down to really fire the jewies up. Bream numbers have picked up a little with the Coal Wall and Limeburners producing a few nice fish. Flattie numbers remain excellent despite the dirty water, with areas downstream of the Dennis Bridge likely produce over the next week or two. Before the fresh, some excellent whiting were taking yabbies and worms in Big Bay and the back channel and this should continue once a degree of clarity returns.
Hopefully this fresh will stir the mud crabs into action, with results to date lacklustre at best. Lake Cathie is again producing excellent prawns. As you would expect, the participation rate is sky high with most managing a great feed. Hopefully this action will continue for a few months yet and not die as suddenly as last year.
On the beaches, some reasonable catches of bream from most locations, with North Beach and the southern end of Lighthouse producing best. Whiting are also on the improve with beach worms the only bait to have. A few salmon still are hanging around although generally not in the larger schools experienced over the past couple of months. Tailor remain quiet. Still a few school mulloway around although not in the quantities seen over winter.
Little to report front the rocks or offshore, courtesy of the conditions.
