Weekly Report 16/9/11

In the estuary, flathead continue to improve with good numbers of fish beginning to show up from most locations. Encouraging reports have come in from Limeburners, Settlement Point, Blackmans Point, Rawdon Island and the breakwalls. Lures and baits have both proven successful, with blades proving particularly deadly. The locally made Koolabung blades are successful.
Some nice whiting are beginning to show up in the Hastings at several locations downstream of the Dennis Bridge, with live worms and yabbies by far the best baits. A trip to Lake Cathie, particularly after dark, is also well worth the effort. Blackfish results have been consistent if not spectacular, with the South Wall the pick. The full moon has slowed the night bream action but from now on throwing a yabby or mullet strip around the coal wall should see a few fish either after dark or at first light,
On the beaches, some nice bream to around a kilo have been taken although generally not in big numbers, together with the odd school mulloway from around Lake Cathie and North Haven. Still a few solid salmon around for a couple of months yet. Tailor remain disappointing, as they have been pretty well all this winter.
Off the rocks, drummer continue to be quite good with most anglers managing a fish or two each outing. Hat Head and Point Plomer have yielded a few fish, although Miners has a few too. Some good sized groper were on offer as the sea backed down, with Perpendicular and Diamond Head providing nice fish. Tailor numbers continue to be inconsistent.
Outside, last weekend was pretty well a write off for most boaties but conditions have now become far more civilised. Latest reports indicate snapper remain active on most reef systems with those throwing lures continuing to achieve the quality and quantity. Bottom bouncers have not been missing out, with pearl perch numbers excellent particularly off Plomer in around 50m. Trag Rock is also worth a look for kingfish, the odd mulloway and of course, teraglin.
