Weekly report 27/4/10

Post by Tony Zann » Tue Apr 27, 2010 9:29 am

On the beaches, bream numbers have been a little inconsistent but there have been some well conditioned fish to around a kilo. Tailor numbers remain solid with most beaches proving productive for choppers and the odd decent greenback. Don’t be surprised if evening sessions in the lead up to this full moon see a marked improvement in the numbers of better quality fish. School mulloway remain common with North beach and around Lake Cathie consistent. Once the mullet begin to travel in numbers, more quality fish may turn up.
Off the rocks, longtail tuna remain in terrific numbers from most LBG locations, with the majority of fish 10 to 17 kilos. Reports of cobia and Spanish mackerel are scarce by comparison, with your best bet to head north. Tailor and bonito remain excellent with Lighthouse and Point Plomer reasonably consistent. The odd bream and school mulloway have also been snared from Plomer. Drummer numbers remain rather quiet.
Offshore fishing has been reasonable although the currents have varied from nothing to unfishable on consecutive days. Mahi mahi remain in terrific numbers around the FAD and most trap buoys beyond the 70m mark. Not a great deal to report in the way of other pelagics, apart from the odd cobia around Barries Bay. For bottom bouncers, the close reefs south of Port have been producing an improved showing of snapper. Wide of Plomer some terrific samson fish have been boated. Squid are reportedly in terrific numbers on most of the close in reefs.
In the estuary, good flathead in Limeburners and the Maria on whitebait. Bream have been improving. Blackfish remain inconsistent although reports of large travelling schools are encouraging. Whiting in general remain down but Limeburners is still producing some nice fish on yabbies. With a full moon approaching and mullet assembling in the lower estuary, you could not really ask for a better combination of events to maximise your mulloway chances.
