Estuary
The recent rough sea and small fresh saw some terrific action in the lower reaches. As is often the case, some nice mulloway were on offer, with Mick O’Brien scoring a terrific 34 kilo model on a hard bodied lure. Along with this fish, several others to around 20 kilos or so were landed, and as usual, there are a few hard luck stories thrown in. Along with the mulloway, the break walls saw some terrific bream action, with fish to around a kilo on offer. Mullet strips and gut bait were both successful, with the dirty water seeing day time sessions producing the better action. Once the brief showing of dirty water begun to clear, blackfish numbers were once again consistent, with the break walls and around the fisherman’s co-op both giving up some quality fish. Greenweed has once again been the bait of choice. We have also had a few reports of some really nice whiting around the Blackmans Point area, with both worms and yabbies working well. With the waters due to progressively warm over the coming weeks, hopefully a terrific spring whiting season will indeed eventuate.

Beaches
The big seas which have been evident more days than not have seen conditions best described as challenging on the more open stretches of sand. As such, most of the effort over the past week has been focused on the more protected corners, with only limited results. Given the conditions, bream have been the predominate species, along with a few reasonable whiting by those using worms for bait. No reports on either mulloway or tailor, predominately due to the conditions, however the odd few salmon have been showing up on most stretches of sand.

Rocks
The big seas have at least fired up a few drummer, with most local headlands now producing in varying degrees. Locally Miners and around Shelley’s have been worth a look, whilst those travelling to both Diamond Head and Point Perpendicular have generally been well rewarded. Cunjevoi, large prawns and hermit crabs have all proven successful baits, although burly as generally is the case, is the key to the better catches. Once the seas settle and safe access is available to the more exposed ledges, groper number should be excellent, whilst those willing to rise early should be able to score a feed of tailor from most locations.

Offshore
Little to report once again with conditions conspiring against those whose available timeslot happens to be either Saturday or Sunday. Fingers crossed this coming weekend may prove viable but time will tell I guess.
