Reports 6/9/16

Post by Nicole Penfold » Wed Sep 07, 2016 11:06 am

In the estuary, flathead numbers are improving with some really nice fish on offer from most parts of the Hasting and Lake Cathie. Best reports have come from around the Hibbard area on either soft vibes or whitebait. On the bream front, the better action of late has been from Limeburners, although those fishing around Rawdon Island have also been scoring some nice fish. Yabbies and mullet strips have both been effective. The break walls are still worth a look for school mulloway either in live bait or large soft plastics, with the change of tide the key to success. On the blackfish scene, the break walls are still producing a few reasonable fish, but you will need patience to gain a reasonable bag.

On the beaches, we are now entering somewhat of slow time of year off the sand but there are still a few nice about. North beach has held a few bream and school mulloway, with worms by far the bait of choice. Lighthouse has also held bream and some nice sized whiting, again with worms the bait of choice. Tailor have slowed noticeably, with the best of the few reports coming from North Haven and Dunbogan. The odd few solid salmon have been mixed in with the tailor for a bit of hard fighting entertainment if nothing else.

Off the rocks, drummer numbers remain consistent if not spectacular. Best results over the past week have come from Diamond Head however locally Shelley’s is still worth a look. Still a few tailor from around the Lighthouse at first light with a slowly spun pilchard the best method. Around Plomer, bream remain reasonable and there are still a few nice school mulloway being encountered during evening sessions. If the seas are calm, groper are pretty well everywhere if you wish to deploy a crab and test the strength of your gear and spine.

On the outside scene, our fantastic winter snapper season just keeps on keeping on, with pretty well all reefs continuing to provide quality reds. While plastics and live bait are producing the better results, even those content to simply bottom bounce have been enjoying great results. Apart from snapper, trag rock continues to hold kingfish together with a few mulloway and sampson fish, while leather jackets remain in many locations beyond 50 or 60 meters.
