Weekly Report 26/8/11

In the estuary, blackfish have slowed noticeably in the lower reaches, much to the disgust of the diehard enthusiasts. What fish have been about are largely undersize, although the odd better specimen is beginning to show further upstream. If you have access to a boat, the Maria using traditional weed rigs is worth a look, as are the weed beds in Limeburners with lightly weighted yabbies. The dirty water coming down the Hastings may add to the challenge. Conversely, this should aid those chasing a bream. The North Wall and Limeburners are both worth a look, as are the canals behind Settlement City which have been giving up some particularly nice bream. The flats around Pelican Island and Settlement Point are worth prospecting for flathead, with lures your best bet.
Although the open beaches have been unfishable for a while, salmon are just about everywhere but perhaps not as thick as in past seasons. Those fishing the protected corners after dark are scoring a few nice bream, with Town and Shelly worth a look. North Haven is worth a look for mulloway, particularly down near the surf club, which always seems to fish well during rough conditions.
Off the stones, drummer remain the pick, particularly around Plomer although areas around Port and Laurieton continue to fare quite well. Big Hill continues to give up some above-average tailor, while Lighthouse and Blueface have produced a few nice bags. A few school jew have been on offer from around Plomer, with live worms and squid enjoying equal success. Bream have been reasonable, with those fishing the dawn session enjoying better results.
Nothing to report offshore, given the conditions over the past week. However if the seas settle as predicted, I expect heavy patronage as the fish were on the chew before the bad weather set in and most offshore anglers are champing at the bit to get back out there.
