Weekly Report 8/6/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jun 08, 2012 12:49 pm

On the beaches, bream numbers have begun to improve noticeably, with Lighthouse Beach and around Laurieton giving up a couple of solid bags before the big blow. Tailor have been consistent if not spectacular, although there are enough reasonable quality fish around to keep you interested. A similar story on the school mulloway front, with North Beach, Lighthouse and North Haven all giving up fish in varying sizes and quantities. As for what formations will be left after the swell dies down remains to be seen, however expect the beaches to be somewhat flattened which will only add to the challenge until they begin to re-form over time.
In the estuaries, flathead action remains excellent with good fish coming from most parts of the lower reaches. Mark from Castaway Estuary Charters has been putting plenty of customers onto some great flatties, with all manner of soft plastics working well. Reports also suggest there are excellent numbers of bream beginning to feed in the lower parts of the system, with the coming dark likely to produce solid results. Mullet gut and yabbies will be the baits of choice. Blackfish numbers have been reasonable but there have been reports from both breakwalls of a noticeable improvement in the last day or so. A big sea at this time of year only benefits our estuary blackfish. Further upstream, still a few good muddies around for the keen crabbers and the crabs are in top condition and full.
Off the rocks, drummer numbers continue to slowly improve with the ledges to the south producing better results. Quite often the first big blow and sea of the year kick starts the drummer season. Shelleys and Miners have been worth a look, although Lighthouse generally produces well early in the season. Tailor numbers remain solid with Point Plomer producing some better quality greenbacks, albeit not in consistent numbers. Well conditioned winter bream are also around the washes, with evening and early morning sessions producing, particularly around Big Hill and Plomer.
Offshore results remain a little mixed with the snapper yet to fully fire up and only average results on other species. Best reports to date have been on mulloway and pearl perch off Plomer, while those fishing a little wider continue to score good numbers of teraglin, particularly at first light or during evening sessions. The NSW Fisheries FAD has been removed over winter, so don’t go wasting fuel looking for it cause it ain’t there.
