Weekly Report 11\03\14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:08 pm

Beaches
Tailor remain consistent which is most pleasing. Best results have been achieved from the bottom end of Lighthouse as well as the beaches in the Camden Haven, with pillies, whitebait and metal lures enjoying equal success. With the latter part of this week seeing a building moon, late afternoon sessions should prove productive. On the mulloway front, whilst the trophy size models remain somewhat elusive, school sized fish remain reasonably common with the beaches around Lake Cathie faring best. As with the tailor, the tides and moon are perfect right now for chasing the larger fish, with fresh tailor the morsel of choice. On the bream front, North Beach and Kylies beach to the south have both been worth a look, whilst directly in front of Lake Cathie is still producing the goods for whiting enthusiasts.

Rocks

Reasonable numbers of blackfish are on offer with many locations a little more washed out for this time of year. Let's hope this scouring trend continues over the next couple of months so that we may enjoy a top drummer season in the months ahead. Tailor remain excellent for this time of year, with the afternoon sessions producing the better results. If anything, the ledges south of Port are producing a better grade of fish. Bream numbers remain reasonable around Lighthouse and Miners, whilst Lighthouse has also produced a few top mulloway of late. Little to report from a land based game scene though, with the water cool and green. What we need is a bit of a consistent blow from the south or south west which usually sees the warm, cobalt blue water kiss our coastline. This is the time of year this usually happens, with the LBG enthusiasts sweating on such conditions arriving.

Estuary
Blackfish numbers have improved marginally although they are still nowhere near as common as the diehards expect. Flathead numbers remain reasonable with both the break walls, Limeburners and around Rawdon Island providing some nice lizards. Bream numbers have been reasonable from the up river areas, with a fresh of sorts really required to spark the action in the lower reaches. Whiting on the other hand remain excellent, with Limeburners and Blackmans Point both fishing well. On the crab front, both muddies and blue swimmer remain active in terrific numbers, so to unfortunately are the share crabbers.

Outside
Reports have been a little mixed with the currents and water temperatures varying from day to day. Bottom fishers have been scoring a few kingfish, teraglin and snapper on occasions, with Plomer seeing the more consistent results. On the pelagic front, the water in Barries Bay has been cool and green, and as such the red hot mackerel bite of a couple of weeks ago has slowed. This can change overnight however, if the winds and currents are favourable. Wider our, the odd bill fish and mahi mahi have been on offer, although just bear in mind the FAD has drifted significantly south of its deployment point if you are looking for it. We will endeavour to provide updated GPS co-ordinates next week for those venturing out which should save a fair bit of time and fuel searching about.
