Weekly Report 23/11/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:32 am

In the estuaries, flathead continue to be the best bet with the Hastings and tributaries producing bags of quality fish. Best catches have come from around the Dennis Bridge while Settlement Point and Blackmans Point are worth a throw. You will have to return plenty of smaller models each session. A few blackfish have been encountered but results have been patchy, while whiting continue to improve in quantity and quality. If you’re seeking a feed of good whiting, the Maria and Limeburners are worth considering for those with a boat, while shore-based anglers could do a lot worse than head for the Back Channel or Blackmans Point. Live worms and yabbies will be top bait but the whiting are becoming more responsive to surface lures. Lake Cathie is well worth a look despite being closed. School mulloway continue to be taken from all parts of Hastings, with reports this week from the North Wall and Rocks Ferry Bridge, not far off the extremities on either end.
Beach results remain inconsistent, with some sessions barren and others worthwhile. Lighthouse has been producing a few whiting but there are plenty of throwbacks. A few reasonable bream remain on offer, particularly during early morning sessions from North Beach and around Crescent Head. Salmon continue to prove a pest or bonus on most beaches, depending on your perspective. The recent good tides produced a few school mulloway from North Beach and around Lake Cathie. Despite stacks of baitfish, the tailor have not been following all schools. It’s just a case of pot luck, you may find a good showing of tailor following one school, and the next will be shadowed by, you guessed it, salmon.
Off the rocks, a few tailor have been taken from Point Plomer and surrounds, while the same locations early morning or late afternoons are well worth a throw for bream. A few nice blackfish have also been on offer around Shelley and Miners but a bit of rough water is a must. The next few weeks may also be well worth a throw for drummer.
Little to report offshore, thanks largely to the winds. Hopefully this weekend will see acceptable conditions for a change.
