Weekly Report 14/9/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:46 pm

In the estuary, a consistent run of bream continues with fish to around a kilo being taken from most locations within the lower reaches. Flathead continue to improve with good numbers of fish beginning to show up from most locations. Best reports have come from Limeburners and Blackmans Point, however Rawdon Island has also been worth a look. Lures and bait have proven equally successful. The break walls are still producing a few quality luderick albeit not in quite the same numbers as in recent weeks.
At Lake Cathie, a significant amount of sand has overwhelmed the entrance and indications are closure could possibly occur any day now. We have seen this occur before and on occasions, the entrance redevelops and stays open for an extended period. Time It is worth noting the last 2 openings at the current height of 1.6m have been very brief indeed, as opposed the 8-month opening period following the previous opening which was delayed until the lake reached above 1.9m. The system has not really fired as yet, with a sprinkling of whiting and flathead along with reasonable numbers of primarily undersized blackfish. A few prawns showing after the last moon.
On the beaches, the seas and winds have not been kind, with limited access to all but the more protected locations for some time. Those who have persisted report the salmon in numbers at any time of day and during any tide phase.
Off the rocks, drummer continue to be quite good. Point Plomer and surrounds continue the pick of locations, however Miners has a few solid fish. The occasional good-sized tailor, with Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head providing nice fish. Bream numbers remain above average, with evening sessions producing better results.
Outside, seas remain inconsistent. There are reasonable numbers of snapper close in off Plomer but plenty of undersize specimens. Leatherjackets remain quite thick in places, although the hordes have moved on. Flathead remain for those keen to chase a feed without venturing too wide.
