Weekly Report 26/5/11

Post by Tony Zann » Thu May 26, 2011 12:56 pm

Off the rocks, tailor and bream have been reasonable with Lighthouse, Miners and Shelley worth a look. Miners has also been producing a reasonable run of very well-conditioned blackfish. A few solid jew have been snared from around Point Plomer, with tailor slabs, soft plastics and pilchards successful. Drummer locally have been disappointing but south around Diamond Head and Point Perpendicular are worthy of investigation.
In the estuary, bream numbers have picked up. Best locations have been the breakwalls with mullet gut, mullet fillets and yabbies the pick of the baits. Those fishing the evening sessions have been doing exceptionally well for bream and good numbers of mulloway, with the odd better fish among the schoolies. The South Wall has been giving up a few nice blackfish. Lake Cathie is still producing despite the entrance looking more sanded-up each day. Those fishing the lake after dark are still reporting good numbers of whiting. Some terrific blue swimmer crabs as well as muddies still on offer. Might be well worth your while to give the traps and witches hats another soaking before being retired for winter.
On the beaches, the action has slowed a little following the full moon but should pick up again when better tides roll around later next week. Lighthouse Beach has been producing a few nice bream, the odd school mulloway and plenty of salmon, particularly from the very southern end close to Lake Cathie. North Beach has been similar. Tailor have been a little disappointing, although the odd above average greenback has been about on or after dark.
There has been some terrific offshore action since the seas settled, with something for everybody. The reefs off Lighthouse have been the place for snapper, with bait and lures scoring terrific numbers of reds to around 6kg. Off Point Plomer, teraglin, kingfish and samson have been in good numbers, along with the odd pearl perch and snapper. Those venturing wide have also been rewarded with a few marlin and yellowfin tuna, while the depths have mostly yielded good numbers of blue eye trevalla.
