Weekly Report 5/3/10

In the estuaries, flathead numbers have been down a little although there still have been some reasonable fish, primarily from the lower section of the Maria and around Rawdon Island. Whiting continue to disappoint. A similar story on blackfish with weed soakers doing it relatively tough. Those fishing yabbies around the weed beds are enjoying slightly better action, along with bream, flatties and whiting. Bream results should improve over the next few days if the river dirties a little following the recent rain.
On the beaches, the signs are excellent with baitfish and tailor numbers better than all last year. A similar story for mulloway enthusiasts, with stacks of schoolies about, primarily from North Beach and around Lake Cathie. In daylight hours, the odd bream and whiting although not in great numbers.
Off the rocks, the story is fairly similar. Most LBG ledges have been devoid of surface activity, apart from bonito. Some reasonable tailor from Diamond Head and Lighthouse, along with the odd bream and blackfish.
Offshore, bottom fishing has been reasonable with few snapper north and south and plenty of pearl perch in the 50m to 70m. A few solid samson and kingfish, primarily off Plomer. In close there are plenty of baitfish with the occasional small black marlin. Wider out, striped marlin remain reasonable. The odd cobia is rumoured to be haunting Barries Bay.
