Weekly Report 25/6/10

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jun 25, 2010 2:56 pm

On the beaches, bream numbers have been excellent, particularly off Lighthouse where several quality fish well over a kilo have been taken. The last hour or two leading up to high tide has produced best. Tailor numbers remain consistent with North Beach and the lower end of Lighthouse continuing to produce a steady stream of choppers. Lures, pilchards or the increasingly popular whitebait are all worth a go. For those fishing after dark, particularly with live beach worms, school mulloway remain pretty well everywhere. Don’t be frightened to throw a large slab or live bait out among them for the odd better quality fish. Unfortunately these baits will also attract sharks and rays. Salmon numbers are beginning to increase significantly, and it won’t be long until they become the dominant species.
Off the rocks, tailor action has been excellent with all ledges along the Mid North Coast producing quality fish morning and evening with pillies, garfish and lures all successful. Lighthouse and Shelley have been the local picks. Bream numbers have been excellent north of Port with Plomer and Big Hill producing bag limit catches last weekend. Drummer numbers are also picking up with Miners and Point Perpendicular worth a throw. School mulloway are everywhere, with worms, squid and lures successful.
In the estuary, blackfish have at long last began to show up with some degree of consistency, with both breakwalls well worth a look. Bream have shown a marked improvement and the walls and lower estuary have been the places to be. The full moon this weekend may see night results taper a little, but there are enough quality fish in the system to warrant a trip anytime. For those drifting or spinning lures during the day, plenty of quality flathead remain quite active.
Offshore action during the past week has been terrific with last weekend seeing conditions close to ideal. Close in, snapper have been solid off Lighthouse and Lake Cathie. Wider off Plomer, snapper, pearl perch, kingfish and samson fish have been active in 60m. Flattie numbers and quality are just about as good as you could hope for. Leatherjackets are becoming increasingly common and have certainly not lost their appetite for destroying terminal tackle.
