Weekly Report 16/12/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Dec 16, 2011 2:42 pm

In the estuaries, flathead continue to star but whiting numbers remain excellent despite a bit of colour in the water. Best results on the lizards from around Limeburners and Settlement Point in the Hastings, while Lake Cathie continues to produce downstream of the Perch Hole. Whitebait, prawns and lures of all types are proving successful for the flatties, while the whiting have been partial to beach worms, yabbies and surface lures of pretty well all types. Bream remain reasonable, with the colour in the water no doubt seeing them a little more active than usual. The North Wall and Coal Wall have been worth a look, with mullet and chicken gut proving successful. There are still plenty of school mulloway in the system. A few mud crabs are beginning to get about, while the next week will most likely give a fair indication on how the Lake Cathie prawns fared following the big flush a couple of weeks ago.
On the beaches, whiting numbers are improving with Lighthouse fishing well on the run-up tide. Improving numbers of bream, with worms and pipis accounting for the better catches. Lighthouse and beaches further south giving up a few chopper tailor. Still a few school mulloway but the big swell during last weekend made fishing challenging.
Off the rocks, a few tailor have shown up with Lighthouse and Blueface producing a few fish, while Plomer and surrounds have fared a little better. Keen LBG addicts no doubt note a bit of warm water is finally beginning to make its way down the coast.
Offshore, finally a bit of current and warm blue water has moved down and catches have improved. Trag Rock has produced a few nice kingfish and teraglin, while the closer reefs off Plomer have also seen some nice snapper taken on baits and plastics. If plastics are your preferred method, a trip to the close reefs off Lighthouse could be well worth the effort, particularly when the current really picks up. Wider out, the water temp is looking excellent for game fishing so the scene is shaping up well for the Golden Lure.
