Weekly Report 9/12/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Dec 09, 2011 1:58 pm

In the estuaries, flathead have been excellent with the recent fresh boosting their activity levels. Lake Cathie has been fishing exceptionally well, while most areas downstream of the Dennis Bridge in the Hasting are worth a look. Lures and bait have been equally effective. Whiting results have begun to pick up again in line with a bit of clean water coming back into the systems, with surface lures, worms and yabbies worth a go. The Coal Wall and breakwalls are still producing a few bream, focus your attention further upstream over coming weeks unless we receive more significant rain. The North Wall is still giving up a few mulloway and with a full moon now upon us, those fishing livies during evening sessions stand a great chance. There are plenty of mullet and garfish in the lower reaches, with a float, small hooks and some bread pretty well all the gear required.
Off the beaches, a few reasonable bream are around, with Lighthouse and North beach worth a look. While not thick, they have included some solid fish to around a kilo. Improved numbers of whiting are also showing up, with Lighthouse producing. There are still a few school mulloway on offer, with the tides at present close to perfect for chasing them with beach worms. Send out a slab of tailor or salmon and you stand a chance of scoring a far more significant model.
Off the rocks, a few drummer remain offer, with Big Hill and Diamond Head still worth a look. Cunjevoi and prawns remain the baits of choice. Some nice bream have been taken from Plomer during evening sessions, along with the occasional blackfish. A few tailor are beginning to get about, although only average in size though.
Offshore, the water in close remains an uninspiring shade of green and while reasonably warm on top, the water on the bottom is cold and heading north. Most have struggled with only the odd snapper and other reef species taken. Even those content to chase a feed of flatties have found the action slow. Wider out, the game fishing enthusiasts are enjoying an encouraging sprinkling of billfish, good news indeed with the Golden Lure now only a month away.
Revised coordinates for the FAD are S31° 35 045, E153° 04 590. It has dragged a bit south of where originally deployed.
