Report 9/11/16

In the estuary, flathead and whiting remain the dominate species as is usually the case at this time of year. Flathead can be found pretty well throughout the entire system with a few nice fish on offer together with plenty of juveniles. Whilst annoying at times, this is a great sign for the future. On the whiting front, Lake Cathie is fishing well both day and night, while Blackmans Point and Limeburners are also well worth a look. On the bream front, best results have been achieved by those throwing lures, with the lower section of the Maria and up around Rawdon Island well worth a look. A few school mulloway have also been encountered from these locations, with larger soft plastics fished in the deeper sections around the tide change the key to success. For fresh water enthusiasts, bass numbers have been sensational in pretty well all local waterways. By all reports the surface bite is really picking up which is great news for those inclined for either early morning or evening sessions.

On the beaches, we are still seeing a steady trickle of bream which is pleasing for this time of year. Best results have been from North beach, with some nice fish to around the 700 gram mark. On the whiting front, Lighthouse is producing a few reasonable fish despite the cool water, with live worms lightly fished around the shallow sand spits the best plan of attack.

Off the rocks, a few reasonable bream have been taken from around Point Plomer along with the odd tailor and drummer. Point Perpendicular has also fished reasonably for drummer and blackfish, while Diamond Head is worth a look for a groper when the seas are down and before the nor easters begin to fully sand the more productive ledges.

Offshore angling reports remain few and far between, with the constant winds seeing only limited opportunities. Those who have managed to sneak out are still finding some nice kingfish around trag rock, along with a sprinkling of teraglin and snapper. A few snapper are also in close south of the lighthouse, with those anchoring and burlying seeing the better results. If the conditions settle sufficiently, no doubt the game fisho’s will be keen to head wide, to hopefully tangle with more of the terrific yellowfin tuna which have been about over recent weeks.
