Weekly Report 13/9/13

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 13, 2013 3:47 pm

In the estuary, the water remains as clear as it can get, given absence of significant rain over recent months. A decent drop now would certainly be most welcome. Despite this, flathead continue to improve with good numbers from most locations. Best reports have come from Limeburners and Blackmans Point, but Rawdon Island has also been worth a look. Lures and bait have been equally successful. The break walls are still producing a few quality luderick with green weed and cabbage equally successful. The lower estuary remains loaded with fish, with many looking forward to the next dose of crook weather to hopefully fire them right up. Good to see a few nice whiting also getting about, with Limeburners and the Maria worth a look, as is Lake Cathie. There are plenty of mud crabs active in the Hastings, with most locations upstream of Limeburners worth a look. Interesting to see whether the blue swimmers turn up again. They favour clean estuary conditions so the state of the system at present would appear ideal.
On the beaches, the recent favourable night tides saw a sprinkling of school mulloway from most beaches, albeit not in the numbers of a couple of months ago. A few reasonable tailor during the arvo sessions, with the beaches south of Port faring best. For daytime anglers, Lighthouse and North Beach have a few bream and whiting along with a few salmon.
Off the rocks, drummer numbers remain quiet but those who put in the effort have picked up the odd one. Point Plomer continue the pick of locations but Miners is worth a look. The occasional good sized tailor continues to be encountered, with Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head providing nice fish. Bream numbers remain solid, with evening sessions producing better. Plenty of groper with Grants Head and Point Perpendicular worth visiting.
The seas remain inconsistent courtesy of the wind but there are reasonable numbers of snapper close in off Plomer and Port. Plenty are undersized. Wider out, a few jackets have reappeared although are generally not to difficult to avoid. Pearl perch and teraglin have been about in good numbers. Flathead remain viable in around 50m east of the bar.
