Weekly Report 06/11/13

Post by Nicole Penfold » Wed Nov 06, 2013 1:04 pm

In the estuaries, flathead and whiting remain the dominant two species, as is usually the case at this time of year. Flathead can be found pretty well throughout the entire system, with both lures and whitebait providing the better results.

The best results on whiting have come from Lake Cathie. Daytime anglers throwing small poppers or pencil type lures are beginning to do particularly well. It is no coincidence that this increased whiting activity has occurred at the same time as increased prawn activity. Those fishing the evening sessions have also been scoring some terrific whiting, with worms, yabbies or, even better, live prawns.

In the Hastings system, the Maria is probably your best bet although Limeburners too has been producing some nice sized whiting. Also in the Hastings, school mulloway numbers remain solid, particularly up towards Wauchope.

On the crustacean scene, this month has seen good numbers of prawns in the Lake Cathie system, however by and large the average size is far from desirable. Next moon however may be a different story, and if so, expect a high participation rate.

Also in our estuary of late have been reasonable numbers of squid. While not renowned for consistently holding squid, the last couple of years have seen numbers throughout the system well worth chasing if you are after a nice feed of calamari or terrific fresh bait.

On the beaches, the constant winds have made conditions challenging, particularly during evening sessions. Those who have managed to find a calm moment are still scoring a few school mulloway after dark on beach worms, along with the odd tailor. You can expect some significant change to previous formations courtesy of the large swells of earlier in the week.

Off the rocks, there are still a few drummer about despite the seasonal build up of sand. Point Perpendicular and Diamond head are both worth visiting, with the latter also holding some nice blackfish. To the north, Plommer and Big Hill have both yielded a few tailor and school mulloway, while a few good tailor have been taken locally, with Lighthouse the pick of locations.

On the offshore front, anglers are becoming frustrated by the constant winds, with only brief windows of opportunity to get out of late. Hopefully by the time the winds settle, the current will have brought down plenty of warm blue water, and some great action with it.
