Weekly Report 12/8/10

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Aug 12, 2010 3:52 pm

In the estuary, blackfish remain patchy at best, although the North Wall and Coal Wall in particular have improved noticeably over the past week. Bream numbers remain solid although the quality has dropped a little. Best results around the breakwalls and up Limeburners during the darker hours. Some nice lizards have been caught over the past week, with whitebait by far the premier bait. Plenty of school mulloway are still about, together with the odd much better model. Jamie Boughton scored one of 23.8 kilo off the North Wall during the week.
Off the beaches, bream numbers remain reasonable with Lighthouse the pick of locations. School jewfish remain above average and with great tides right now, should still be on offer from most locations if conditions are reasonable. Apart from the schoolies, the odd better fish is now getting about, with Rod Allum scoring a terrific 19 kilo fish off the sand near Diamond Head late last week. A few tailor remain about for those willing to fish at daylight, although with the salmon numbers increasing rapidly, I suggest the tailor schools may begin to get crowded out in the very near future. How thick the salmon will get this season is anyone’s guess, with their numbers sure to increase further over the next couple of months.
Off the rocks, drummer remain subdued but further down the coast, are reportedly as good as they have been for several seasons. Whether they fire up at all here this year remains to be seen. Tailor numbers have remained steady, as have bream, with Point Plomer fishing well. We have also had a couple of reports of good numbers of blackfish from around Shelley and Miners, while the odd groper has been encountered by those tossing a crab when conditions allow safe access.
Outside conditions have meant few decent days have been available. Those who have ventured out report the leatherjackets are back in big numbers from around 50m. Trag Rock has held some solid samson fish and plenty of small kings, while other reefs have yielded some terrific pearl perch. Closer in, snapper have been excellent on bait in the evening and plastics at dawn.
