Weekly Report 1/6/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jun 01, 2012 12:11 pm

Reports from the estuaries indicate there are good numbers of bream and blackfish in the lower reaches, but the clear water has the fish difficult to tempt. Best results on the bream have been achieved at night with live yabbies and mullet gut. Limeburners, the Coal Wall and both of the breakwalls are worth a go. Those fishing around the weed beds at night with yabbies have also been scoring better catches of blackfish. If we get enough rain to add a bit of colour to the water, look for the action during the day to really take off. Flathead continue to be excellent and. Still a few nice whiting about in the shallows on yabbies or beach worms, while those throwing the larger plastics in the deeper sections of the system are still scoring a steady stream of school mulloway.
Off the beaches, bream numbers are slowly beginning to pick up, with the odd fish to around a kilo on offer. Tailor have been consistent with most beaches producing a run of choppers at dawn and dusk on pilchards and lures. Still plenty of school mulloway on North Beach, around Lake Cathie and North Haven. Most are 2 to 4 kilos, with the odd fish to around 15 kilos, so presenting a tailor slab in lieu of a beach worm may just lead to quality over quantity, particularly in the lead-up to the full moon.
Off the rocks, tailor are consistent if not spectacular, with Point Plomer, Hat Head and around Lighthouse fishing well. No real signs of the larger greenbacks yet. Increasing reports of drummer. Bream numbers and quality have begun to improve, with dawn sessions producing better results.
Offshore, despite sea conditions generally being about as good as we can hope for, results have been a little hit and miss. The current has ranged from absolutely zero up 3 knots and the water has varied from just above 17° to a balmy 23°. Best reports have been on teraglin, pearl perch and mulloway, while snapper numbers are slowly improving closer in.
