Weekly Report 2/4/11

Post by Tony Zann » Sat Apr 02, 2011 11:14 am

On the beaches, tailor remain consistent and certainly a considerable improvement on results at this point in the season in past years. Lures, pilchards and whitebait have all proven effective. The odd better bream is beginning to show up. Plenty of school mulloway and the tides this weekend are close to optimum. If you are seeking to upgrade from the standard school size, try throwing tailor slabs or head in lieu of worms. You wont get the quantity but the chance of quality is much higher.
Off the rocks, tailor and bonito are common, with Lighthouse producing some solid bags while Point Plomer has some better quality fish. A few reports of drummer with Diamond Head well worth a look. Recent southerlies have done the trick, warming the waters and firing up the longtails. Best results have come from Point Perpendicular but any ledge or even the North Wall could produce given the water temperature amount of bait close in at present.
In the estuary, a few solid bream have begun to show up also around the walls, with the high tide just after dark your best bet. Limeburners and Settlement Point have produced as well. Flathead numbers remain consistent, as have whiting, with the Maria proving productive despite remaining quite dirty. Plenty of mullet moving into the lower reaches, with their annual migration now not far off. If a decent mulloway is what you desire, floating a livie or throwing big lures where the mullet are congregating will not do your chances any harm at all.
Offshore, snapper, pearl perch and kingfish have all been encountered when conditions allow. Barries Bay is still the place to be for Spanish mackerel, cobia and longtail tuna.
