25/1/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Jan 25, 2006 8:08 am

On the beaches, red weed remains an issue but has begun to disperse. For those keen to toss a line in the surf, your best bet is to check conditions beforehand, as the beaches can be thick with weed one day and clean the next. Reports from those who have begun to venture back to the sand indicate bream numbers remain reasonable with the odd quality specimen but down a little on what we generally expect at this time of year. Whiting have been rather quiet , as have tailor although a few encouraging reports have begun to filter in from afternoon sessions on Lighthouse. Little to report of school jew apart from one nice 10kg specimen extracted from Lighthouse. With the weed clearing and all beaches holding terrific formations, this weekend’s tides represent the best opportunity for quite time.
In the estuary, flathead numbers remain solid with plenty of fish of 1-2kg. Best bait is whitebait but the soft plastic tossers continue to achieve better results. Good numbers of whiting are being caught well up the Maria and around Pelican Island. Also in the river are plenty of garfish, with peeled prawns or bread working well, while a few nice bream have been in lower reaches after the rain. Blackfish remain quiet.
Offshore action has been hit and miss with swirling offshore currents seeing the water vary from a chilly 18° one day to an attractive 24° the next. Bottom bouncers have caught snapper and pearl perch with a few solid kings. Flatties have been caught in numbers. Surface fishing has been slow in the cold water
