Weekly Report 20/1/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jan 20, 2012 4:43 pm

Offshore, the Golden Lure has been successfully staged and congratulations to all the winners and the organizing committee. The weather was not ideal and the fish a little elusive. Offshore anglers content to chase a feed off the bottom have also found conditions challenging, with the lack of current seeing the action a little subdued. Best reports have been from the reefs off Plomer, with a few solid mulloway, teraglin and snapper with the odd pearl perch.
Off the beaches, before the onshore wind blew up some great mulloway on Lighthouse from schoolies to around 20 kilos on beach worms and tailor. Tailor have been consistent, no doubt resultant from significantly improved baitfish numbers. The odd bream, better than average whiting and late season salmon have also been about to keep those keen on only fishing daylight hours occupied.
Off the rocks, bream and blackfish have both been solid from around Plomer, along with reasonable numbers of school mulloway. Tailor have been elusive. Still a few drummer in the washes on prawns, cunjevoi or cabbage. Apart from a few isolated longtail tuna, the LBG season is still awaiting the warm water.
In the estuaries, whiting and flathead remain excellent. Flathead are being taken from pretty well all parts of the Hastings on bait and lures, while Lake Cathie seems to have a never-ending supply of whiting. Some nice bream have been taken from the North Wall after dark, along with the odd mulloway. An 8 kilo cobia was taken by Chris Cant near the Dennis Bridge on a live yakka.
