Weekly Report 2/3/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 02, 2012 2:52 pm

In the estuaries, school mulloway have been prolific on lures, live mullet or herring and beach worms with the breakwalls, Blackmans Point, the Dennis Bridge and around Rawdon Island giving up fish ranging from juveniles to about 90cm. Flathead have been solid, albeit with plenty of undersize models in between the better fish. Whiting remain reasonable, with Limeburners and Lake Cathie the pick locations. There are plenty of muddies on offer so now is definitely time to set a trap or a few witches hats.
On the beaches, results are above average for this time of year. Daytime anglers have been scoring some solid bream and whiting from Lighthouse and North beaches. Those fishing the evenings have been scoring tailor and school mulloway, with Lighthouse proving consistent. No matter what time of day you choose, there is every chance of encountering a salmon with pretty well any type of bait or lure viable.
Off the rocks, anglers seeking land based game are being frustrated by inconsistent conditions. This is traditionally the time when cobia, Spanish mackerel and longtail tuna grace our headlands but with the exception of the odd success from Hat Head and South West Rocks, most ledges have been devoid of major activity. For alternate action, some reasonable tailor have been snared from Point Plomer, Hat Head and Lighthouse, along with the odd bream, blackfish and drummer.
Offshore fishing has been up and down courtesy of the current. Bottom bouncers have been particularly frustrated although there have been some reasonable snapper off Lighthouse Beach. Barries Bay is yet to fire, much to the disappointment of many. Wider out, marlin numbers remain excellent, with last weekend seeing several encounters with blues of 120kg and 200kg.
