25/8/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Aug 25, 2006 5:45 pm

Offshore: While I don't want to go on about the leatherjackets, if you’re heading offshore take plenty of hooks and sinkers as these blighters continue to rob you of tackle. Apart from the jackets there have been lots of small kingfish at The Pinnacle happy to take metal and soft plastic lures. The best of the snapper and pearl perch have come from reefs to our north, wide of Old Bar. Water temp remains above average as evidenced by the reports of up to three marlin seen free-jumping last weekend not all that far off shore.
Beaches: A few isolated big tailor were caught on the northern end of Nine Mile Beach a few days ago but getting past the salmon is a problem. Also lots of salmon being reported on Seven Mile Beach to our south. A report from Seal Rocks indicates there are some quality whiting being caught in that part of the world.
Rocks: While conditions have been good the rock fishing has slowed over recent weeks. A few small drummer have been caught but a few of the old-timers tell me that the time to get snapper off the rocks is fast approaching, with most of these being targeted after dark.
Estuary: Lots of blackfish are still being caught. The early spring has seen the bream moving into the rivers. A few big sand whiting are in the lake but these are not wide spread. Flathead are becoming more active as the run of above average daytime land and water temperatures continues.
