28/6/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Jun 28, 2006 9:29 am

Off the rocks, good numbers of tailor remain on offer with Lighthouse, Plomer and Diamond Head continuing to produce quality fish on pillies, garfish or lures. With the tailor are increasing numbers of salmon, indicating their mass arrival is imminent. Bream numbers have been excellent with some nice early morning and late afternoon sessions producing fish to a kilo or better. Drummer numbers are steadily improving with Point Plomer and surrounds fishing quite well last weekend with plenty of fish to around 3kg. The local ledges should also improve from now on, particularly if the stirred up sand which is a feature of most ledges settles or washes out. Blackfish remain an option with Point Perpendicular containing good numbers of fish, while the odd solid groper has been extracted during the periods of calmer seas.
Off the beaches, conditions have not been ideal with red weed a real pest. Lighthouse and North Beach seem to be the worst-affected, with the weed just not seeming to want to move this winter. If you are prepared to hunt around there are still places where the weed is not too bad and there are certainly plenty of fish about. Bream have been quite good while tailor remain a viable option. Still a few mulloway around after dark for those putting in the time, with tailor and worms the pick of baits. Salmon numbers are also gaining momentum and no doubt will be driving us mad soon.
In the estuary, blackfish numbers are as good as they been all year with the South Wall producing the more consistent results, although the North Wall and Coal Wall are well worth a go. Look for the action to improve considerably further upstream over the next week or so. Bream numbers are close their peak with our lower estuaries just about at their best for night breaming. Reports from the breakwalls have been most positive, with some terrific fish on offer. Pretty well any bait will catch fish in varying numbers but mullet or blackfish gut, fished on a 1/0 chemically sharpened suicide hook and minimal lead, will prove a deadly combination. A few mulloway have also been reported from around the breakwalls with live mullet proving the bait of choice.
For outside fishos, when conditions allow (which hasn’t been often of late) the story has been all leatherjackets and heaps of them. Best bet is to make sure there is plenty of wire and long-shank hooks on board. If you can avoid the jackets and the current, which has been screaming on some days, flathead remain excellent, whilst the closer reefs off Plomer have plenty of small to medium snapper and pearl perch.
