Weekly Report 25/11/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Nov 25, 2011 3:33 pm

In the estuaries, flathead and whiting continue to be the best bets with the Hastings and Lake Cathie producing excellent bags of quality fish. Best flattie catches have come from around the Dennis Bridge while Settlement Point and Blackmans Point are worth a throw. Those fishing the Dennis Bridge with live bait or lures are still encountering the odd mulloway, albeit not always successfully. Lake Cathie has been excellent for whiting as is often the case during the dark of the moon when the prawns run. Best results have been achieved during daylight hours on all manner of surface poppers and stickbaits, but those who fish the evening with live prawns or worms have also been rewarded. There has been a marked increase in prawn activity this dark but size remains poor.
On the beaches, results have been below average with most stretches steep and deep and devoid of any real formation. Best results have come from North Beach, with a few reasonable bream, tarwhine and school mulloway on the evening tide. Once the water warms a bit more, look for the whiting action to pick up. A few isolated tailor have been taken on the southern end of Lighthouse and off the beaches to the south of Port. Salmon numbers are beginning to dwindle.
Off the rocks, early morning and late afternoon high tides are well worth a throw for bream, with Point Plomer still reasonable. A few nice blackfish around Plomer and Big Hill, with the odd pig.
Offshore, at last we are beginning to see an improvement in water temperature, with that patch of 16° water beginning to dissipate. A few reasonable snapper on offer on the reefs, while those travelling north to Plomer have also managed a few teraglin and school mulloway. The odd mahi mahi has begun to show up, while wider out a few solid blue marlin are being encountered.
