Weekly Report 17/3/10

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Mar 17, 2010 9:47 am

On the beaches, tailor numbers remain far better than 2009 with plenty of choppers and the odd much better greenback at dawn or dusk. The southern half of Lighthouse and around Lake Cathie have been the pick of the local beaches, while those fishing the Camden Haven area have also enjoyed good success. Bream numbers are slowly picking up. While the larger mulloway are temporarily elusive, numbers of schoolies remain excellent. North Beach and around Lake Cathie have both performed consistently, with live worms the premier bait. Whiting remain a little more elusive than usual.
Off the rocks, land-based game reports are poor and will most likely remain so until the warmer currents come closer. Best bet would be to chase a cobia north of Port. Tailor and bonito remain excellent, particularly during dawn sessions, while those floating a bit of cabbage through the washes report some top blackfish, particularly from Point Plomer, which is also fishing quite well for bream after dark.
In the estuary, blackfish numbers continue a little hit and miss, although a few reasonable bags have been reported. Flathead numbers remain sound with both the breakwalls and Limeburners providing some nice lizards. Bream numbers have been good, although daylight catches are dominated by undersized specimens and the vast majority of keepers are being taken at night. After a slow start to this dark, some excellent nights were enjoyed with a much better class of prawn evident. Plenty of solid muddies pretty well throughout the Hastings.
Outside reports have been relatively sparse with the constant southerly winds making conditions range from uncomfortable to unsafe. On the better days fishos continue to do well bottom-bashing off Plomer with plenty of pearlies, some nice reds and few solid samson. Those electing to chase sportfish in Barries Bay are doing it a little tougher although rumour has it the odd cobia is about if you are prepared to put in the time.
