Weekly Report 20/4/11

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Apr 20, 2011 9:23 am

On the beaches, although the bream are yet to really fire up, there have been some solid fish about to around a kilo or better. Tailor have picked up noticeably in quality and quantity. Salmon numbers have picked up considerably with some bumper models over 4kg providing top sport. They are here in numbers early this year which will no doubt please some and dismay others. On the mulloway front, the tides leading up to the moon produced generously as expected, with nearly all beaches fishing well. Highlight of the week was no doubt Aileen Huf’s 15kg model, taken off North Beach on a beach worm.
In the estuary, bream and tarwhine numbers are up in the lower reaches, with good results achieved during evening sessions despite the big moon. Flathead remain a viable option and while perhaps not as thick as in recent weeks, the quality is first class. A similar story with whiting, with Big Bay and Blackmans Point still producing some top quality fish on yabbies and beach worms. Those chasing mulloway have also been well rewarded, with the North Wall producing plenty of school fish as well as the occasional better model. While the mullet remain in numbers in the lower reaches, your chances of encountering a decent fish remain well above average. No prizes for guessing what bait you should be presenting.
Off the rocks, tailor numbers and quality are a little better with the Lighthouse and Point Plomer reasonably consistent, while the odd solid bream has also been snared. Drummer numbers remain rather quiet but the odd fish has been taken from Plomer and Big Hill to the north and around Diamond Head to the south. Still a few longtail tuna about, with those putting in the time snaring the odd fish. Hat Head, Hungry Head and Point Perpendicular remain the most viable options.
Offshore fishing has been reasonable with options close in and wide out. Barries Bay is still producing the odd Spanish mackerel although you will need to put in significantly more effort in comparison to the past couple of months. Wider out, some terrific snapper have been on offer, along with good showings of kingfish, samson fish and pearl perch. Those fishing evening sessions have also been scoring a few nice teraglin and mulloway.
