Weekly Report 23/2/11

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Feb 23, 2011 8:55 am

Of the beaches, there have been reasonable numbers of whiting with plenty of throwbacks amongst the better fish. Bream numbers have improved a little and average size is quite good for this time of year. Tailor have picked up noticeably with some terrific fish among the choppers. School mulloway are prolific after dark, with beach worms and squid accounting for the bulk of the fish.
Off the rocks, the land-based game scene is just about to take off with scattered reports of longtail tuna, Spanish mackerel and cobia north and south. There is plenty of bait around, so it now appears just a matter of choosing the right location on the right day and persisting. Tailor have been excellent around Point Plomer and Lighthouse while most ledges are producing reasonable numbers of bream, blackfish and school mulloway.
In the estuary, flathead remain reasonable as do whiting, with the Maria River fishing particularly well. Those fishing the breakwalls have also been scoring some solid bream to a kilo, terrific greenback tailor to around 3 kilos as well as the continued run of school mulloway. Mud crabs remain as good as they get, and even a few blue swimmers have shown up.
Outside, 25° to 27° water is pretty well everywhere, with good numbers of marlin and mahi mahi. Closer in, Barries Bay has been firing with Spanish mackerel, long tail tuna and the occasional cobia. Slow trolled livies have been most productive, but lures have been working well on occasions. The current has made bottom fishing difficult at best. Jason and Virginia Isaac
