Weekly Report 27/9/13

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 27, 2013 4:09 pm

In the estuary, blackfish numbers are reasonable, although in the main the quality is down a little from that of a month or so ago. The South Wall and the Coal Wall remain your best bet but don’t overlook the upstream haunts, given the lack of rain over recent weeks. Bream numbers were down a little given the recent full moon but should pick up now. Plenty of flatties with pretty well all parts of the Hastings worth a look on bait and lures. The whiting news is all good with the Hastings and Lake Cathie producing consistent action. Worms and yabbies may be achieving the best but surface lures are beginning to come into their own and should prove more effective as the estuaries warm and the prawns become more active. A few prawns have been sighted skipping about Lake Cathie and I expect a few early season investigations this week.
Some reasonable action on the beaches. Around Lake Cathie has produced reasonable numbers of school mulloway as well as the occasional much better fish. North Beach has some terrific bream, with the northern section near Queens well worth visiting. Salmon are now on most beaches although not in numbers sufficient to hinder chasing the more palatable species.
On the rocks, drummer numbers remain steady at best with Point Plomer, Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head producing a few fish without being spectacular. With the water now quite cool, you should be able to chase a feed of pigs for a few more weeks yet. Tailor remain for those keen to rise well before 5am or fish the evening. A few bream for those willing to put in the time at night. Still plenty of good-sized groper around with crabs the bait of choice.
Offshore, despite the cool water some terrific snapper to around 7kg taken off Port and Plomer, especially on soft plastics. Pearl perch and nice teraglin have been taken from around 60m, while the flattie grounds have proven reliable for a feed.
