Weekly Report 15/6/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jun 15, 2012 2:35 pm

On the beaches, few opportunities have existed courtesy of the southerly winds and swell, and most of the established formations have been flattened. Those keen to fish the more sheltered northerly facing beaches have been rewarded a few solid bream with the odd tailor and increasing numbers of salmon. Before the blow came, a few tailor were taken from Lighthouse although not in great numbers, while North Beach was producing a reasonable run of school mulloway. Some of the better beach sessions are enjoyed when formations first begin to redevelop after a big blow. A beach with only a few formations is often far more productive than one with endless fish attracting formations. The rewards are there at this time of year, particularly for those prepared to do a bit of homework and travelling.
Off the rocks, the swells have limited opportunities with sheltered locations the places to fish. bream numbers have been reasonable and should only improve over coming weeks. Drummer have improved considerably, with areas around Point Perpendicular, Big Hill and Shelley producing fish. The amount of food washed off the rocks by the rough seas should prime the pigs’ appetites. There are still plenty of tailor about but access to the ledges where the quality greenbacks are has been somewhat limited.
In the estuary, blackfish numbers have improved dramatically with both break walls, the coal wall and the back channel producing quality bags. Green weed and cabbage have both proven successful. Bream numbers have picked up with some nice fish moving into the lower reaches during the rough seas. If the river dirties up a little, look for the bream to bite more freely, particularly during the day. Plenty of flatties, with whitebait and yabbies achieving results while blades worked particularly well over the past week. Still plenty of muddies.
Outside opportunities have been limited with only a brief opportunity last weekend, when a few reasonable snapper were taken close in off Lighthouse. Wider out, some nice pearl perch were taken off Plomer although the current has been running hard most days.
