Weekly Report 12/10/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:48 pm

In the estuary, flathead remain the star attraction with quality fish on offer from most parts. Good catches are now coming from areas further upstream, with the Maria and around Rawdon Island fishing quite well, although the lower reaches are still producing plenty of big lizards. A few bream are still on offer around Limeburners and the Coal Wall, although those fishing upstream towards Wauchope are enjoying the pick of the action, given the water up river is as clear as it has been for quite some time. Mulloway numbers are excellent in this area with large soft plastics and blades effective. Downstream, increasing numbers of whiting are beginning to show in the Hastings with Limeburners and up the Maria now producing quality fish on live worms or yabbies. Lake Cathie has been fishing well for whiting although the entrance at present seems to be verging on closure. Blackfish are starting to slow considerably but a few solid fish to around a kilo are hanging around Limeburners and the breakwalls. Mud crab numbers are picking up almost daily so now is definitely time to dust off the traps and dillies.
Off the beaches, conditions have been challenging courtesy of the constant wind and big seas. Best results have centred around school mulloway after dark on North Beach and the southern section of Lighthouse. The cool water has not been conducive to bream or whiting but salmon remain constant from all beaches. Tailor action remains spasmodic.
Off the rocks, still a few drummer but the action has begun to slow. Best results from Diamond Head and Point Perpendicular, although local haunts around Port are still worth a look. Tailor have improved a little with some over a kilo around Point Plomer. Blackfish numbers remain reasonable, while the odd groper is still on offer.
Outside reports have been a little more encouraging with a few snapper from the closer reefs, the odd kingfish and samson wider off Plomer and good numbers of teraglin early in the morning or after dark. Constant wind means few opportunities to venture out.
