Weekly Report 9/11/12

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Nov 08, 2012 3:20 pm

In the estuaries, flathead and whiting remain the dominant species. Flathead can be found pretty well throughout the system with lures and whitebait providing good results. Best results on whiting have come from Lake Cathie, with daytime anglers throwing small poppers or pencil type lures doing particularly well despite the system now being closed. In the Hastings, the Maria is probably your best bet although Limeburners has been producing some nice-sized whiting. School mulloway numbers in the Hastings remain solid, particularly up towards Wauchope. The break walls and around Westport are still producing the odd blackfish in surprisingly good condition for this time of year. Good numbers of prawns in Lake Cathie but the average size is far from desirable. Next moon may be a different story.
On the beaches, the constant winds have made conditions challenging, particularly during evening sessions. Those who have managed to find a calm moment are still scoring a few school mulloway after dark on beach worms, along with the odd tailor. Best bet would be to fish around daylight, with North Beach and Lighthouse worth a shot for bream, whiting and the odd tailor.
Off the rocks, there are still a few drummer about despite the seasonal build-up of sand. Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head are both worth visiting, with the latter also holding some nice blackfish. To the north, Plomer and Big Hill have yielded a few tailor and school mulloway, while a few good tailor have been taken locally, with Lighthouse the pick.
Offshore anglers are becoming frustrated by the wind and during the small windows of opportunity the current has been going at around 3 knots. Hopefully by the time the winds settle the current will have brought down plenty of warm blue water.
