Weekly Report 15/2/13

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Feb 15, 2013 2:17 pm

On the beaches, a significant amount of sand loss remains evident although with relatively calm seas for the next week or so, they should begin to rebuild. In the meantime, exercise care if you intend driving your vehicle, particularly around high tide. Lighthouse has been producing a terrific run of bream, along with a few solid whiting. A similar story on North Beach, with bream and some nice flathead from the southern end. A few school mulloway but results are down from before the big seas hit.
In the estuaries, bream numbers in the lower reaches have been solid with the coloured water seeing them bite freely day and night. Limeburners and the Coal Wall have been productive. Flathead have been excellent, with the flats around Pelican Island producing well. Lake Cathie is worth a look but the hectic action enjoyed at the front of the lake last week has slowed, as you would expect with the sea no longer flowing over the berm. It is mulloway business as usual with fish throughout the system. It appears the fresh was not significant enough to see the bulk of fish move down, as the areas around Wauchope are still worth a look.
Off the rocks, excellent tailor action most mornings around the Lighthouse and up north at Plomer and Big Hill. Most are just choppers. A few nice pigs have been taken from around Shelley and Flagstaff, with cunjevoi and cabbage both working well. A few school mulloway and bream around Plomer, while bonito numbers have picked up around Point Perpendicular and the Lighthouse.
Offshore, the current has continued to prove frustrating on most days for those wishing fish anywhere but the very close reefs. Snapper results have been down although the odd good fish has been close in off Plomer and Lighthouse. Bottom bouncing for species other than flathead has been hard work. The FAD holds reasonable mahi mahi, while Barries Bay has seen a good run of Spanish mackerel and a few solid cobia on slow-trolled livies. The influx of cool water last weekend slowed results temporarily.
