24/3/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 24, 2006 9:04 pm

In the estuary, blackfish numbers have picked up noticeably with both breakwalls giving up plenty of solid fish to a kilo. Bream numbers are improving but with plenty of throwbacks. Reasonable numbers of good sized whiting continue to be taken with well up the Maria producing the better results, while lure-tossers report the flattie action is as good as ever. The recent full moon also saw plenty of mulloway action off the breakwalls, with north wall in particular giving up plenty of fish to around 17 kilos. Live mullet has proven the bait of choice as expected. No real news of blue swimmers apart from a few from around the canals but muddies remain particularly active and are still well worth chasing.
Off the beaches, this week will be largely dependent upon the sea conditions. Good numbers of mulloway have begun to show up with Lighthouse producing numerous fish around the full moon, most over 10 kilos and taken on fresh tailor. The tailor action is certainly picking up although has been a little hit and miss on occasions. The better catches have been taken during morning sessions. The tailor disappeared on dark and not surprisingly, the mulloway turned up almost immediately. Bream numbers and quality are on the improve with several reasonable bags taken from Lighthouse and North Beach, including fish over a kilo. Whiting have been a little quiet.
Off the rocks, tailor numbers remain excellent for those out at dawn or dusk, while night anglers have been scoring increasing bags of well-conditioned bream, despite the full moon. Lighthouse has produced good numbers of tailor, while Racecourse and Big Hill provided better bream action. No reports of land-based game scene, with the year to date disappointing addicts.
