Weekly Report 27/4/11

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Apr 28, 2011 6:12 pm

On the beaches the season is beginning to fire with some great action. All beaches are producing mulloway although we are now beginning to see some much better fish. Lighthouse is fishing exceptionally well, with Matt Kallmier and Cameron Doak both scoring fish around 15 kilo, while Lynton Kallmier managed a terrific 27 kilo model. As well as the mulloway, the recent full moon phase produced some bumper tailor. John Acroyd scored a terrific 3.24 kilo greenback from Lighthouse and Leigh Partington weighed a 3.44 kilo model from North Beach. Salmon are here en masse with one group of anglers scoring around 20 fish in an hour. I shudder to think how many will arrive when the water begins to cool. The odd better bream is beginning to cruise the waves. May is renowned as the best month of the year for chasing bream off the beach. You could probably call it the best month of year for jew and tailor as well.
Off the rocks, tailor numbers have picked up as has the quality with reports of fish over 2 kilos from Bonny Hills and Diamond Head. Drummer numbers remain encouraging. Shelley and Miners have a few good pigs, as have the normal ledges around Plomer and Big Hill. Bream numbers are on the improve. No reports of longtails over the past week, although the land-based game is certainly far from over.
In the estuary, good flathead continue to be taken with the Maria, Limeburners and the main channel for quality fish. Whitebait remains the pick bait and lure tossers have enjoyed success. Bream numbers have begun to pick up and should further do so around the breakwalls if the big seas hang around for a while. A few blackfish are beginning to show up around the breakwalls and will benefit from a bit of swell. Green weed is unavailable but cabbage will do the job. The breakwalls have also been excellent for mulloway. For whiting the Hastings is still fishing quite well although the place to go if you are seeking a feed is Lake Cathie. Live worms fished anywhere in the lower section will work well, particularly after dark, although the gun bait will be live prawns.
Offshore fishing has been excellent, with those content to bottom bounce enjoying results. Snapper, mulloway, teraglin and pearl perch are all on offer with the deeper reefs off Lighthouse and Plomer producing well. The only quiet moment seemed to coincide with the current standing still. Barries Bay is still worth a look for a Spanish albeit not with the degree of certainty of the past couple of months. Wider out, the currents are still warm enough to hold a few marlin and mahi mahi if game fishing is your passion.

A group of us will be making a trip to Port Mc next week - hoping to bag some luderick. I notice u have not made any reports on luderick lately. Will we be wasting our time?
