Weekly Report 2/9/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 02, 2011 5:48 pm

On the beaches, salmon remain common and will most likely remain so for the next few months at least. Tailor numbers have picked up a little after a relatively disappointing winter, with the northern section of North Beach and the southern end of Lighthouse the pick locations. Bream numbers and quality remain quite reasonable, whilst those fishing the evening high tide for school mulloway are still scoring consistent numbers. Best reports have been from around Lake Cathie and North Haven.
Off the rocks, drummer numbers remain reasonably consistent with some solid fish for those willing to put in the time. Most local ledges are producing but Point Plomer and Big Hill have been fishing particularly well. The key is to be prepared to be mobile, and of course berley heavily. Large peeled prawns and cunjevoi have been the pick baits. Blackfish numbers are on the improve, with some bumper specimens being snared locally and around Point Perpendicular on cabbage and cunjevoi. Tailor numbers remain reasonable with the odd nice greenback about, particularly from Big Hill and surrounds. Plenty of groper around as well for those willing to toss in a crab on the appropriate tackle, and hang on.
In the estuary, flathead remain excellent, as they have pretty well all winter with lures in particular working well. Bream numbers are reasonable and there are some nice fish. Best reports have come from around Hibbard and the canals. Blackfish results from the lower reaches have been disappointing, although the odd nice fish is about. If the break walls are your scene, a trip across the ferry will most likely prove worthwhile. The break walls are still producing a few nice mulloway after dark, with live mullet as usual the bait of choice.
Offshore, our terrific run of snapper shows no signs of slowing with last weekend seeing excellent results particularly from those throwing plastics. Good numbers of pearl perch from the reefs off Plomer, whilst Trag Rock has yielded good kingfish and a few nice mulloway. The boys fishing deep have enjoyed consistent results on blue eye while from the surface we have heard of a couple of encounters with blue marlin from some 21°.
