Weekly Report 14/12/12

In the estuaries, flathead and mulloway continue to star but whiting numbers are now excellent. Best results on the lizards are from further up the Hastings and Maria with whitebait, prawns and lures of all types successful. A similar story with the mulloway locations, although the break walls are worth a look for a better class of fish. For the whiting, beach worms and yabbies remain the pick baits, with the back channel and around Blackmans producing best results although a trip up the Maria could be well worth a look. Lake Cathie has also continued to produce good numbers of whiting on surface lures during the day and live prawns or beach worms at night. Bream numbers remain reasonable with surface fizzers and the like beginning to come into their own. Blackfish remain scattered and are a day-to-day proposition, with a feed rather than a bagful the most realistic result. Lake Cathie has produced excellent prawning over the past week but the average size is only fair. By the next dark in early January a more satisfactory average size will be on offer and the participation rate will be considerable.
Beach mulloway numbers have been excellent with North Beach producing a solid run of school fish to around 5 kilos. The beaches around Lake Cathie have also been well worth a look. Lighthouse has given up a few solid bream close to a kilo, along with a few whiting and salmon. Tailor have been a little elusive.
Off the rocks, the odd tailor has shown up with Lighthouse and Blueface producing a few reasonable fish, while Plomer has fared a little better. The bite is brief with a pre dawn start or an after dark session a must. Still the odd drummer about on cunjevoi.
Offshore reports have been quite good for bottom bouncing with snapper to 5 kilos, pearl perch, the odd kingfish, morwong and other mixed reef species. The majority of the better reds are falling for soft plastics. The currents are warming each week but the deep cobalt hue game fishos are looking for is not there.
