1/3/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Mar 01, 2006 12:52 pm

In the estuaries, flathead numbers have been down although there still have been some reasonable fish taken, primarily from further upstream in the Maria and Hastings. If the rain continues and the river regains some colour, target the lower reaches for better results. Some good whiting with Limeburners and well up the Maria continuing to produce well. Blackfish remain patchy at best but some good fish are still coming off the weed beds on lightly weighted yabbies. The breakwalls at night have some reasonable bream. Plenty of solid muddies are on the chew.
The beaches have been inconsistent with strong currents and red weed testing the patience of many. Some solid bream and whiting, with the odd good tailor have been taken with North Beach and Lighthouse worth a look. School mulloway have been scarce. A few big salmon still hanging around.
Off the rocks LBG is being frustrated by inconsistent conditions but some great bream have been snared from Point Plommer, Hat Head and Lighthouse, along with the odd good tailor, blackfish and drummer.
Offshore fishing has been reasonable although the strong current from the north has been a pest. A few snapper have been off Point Plomer along with the usual mixed bags including mid-sized kingfish and a few pearl perch. Those content with drifting the flattie grounds have generally been well rewarded, with plenty of lizards to 2kg. Marlin remain common with plenty of small blacks in close following the warm currents, with the odd cobia. Mahi mahi remain a viable option with the FAD and most traps producing consistent results of fish to 8kg.
