Weekly Report 2/2/2007

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Feb 02, 2007 2:55 pm

Offshore - It's been a long time coming, but the warmer blue water is upon us. Over the last week we have seen Cobia, small Black Marlin and Mahi Mahi take up station off our section of coastline. Several Yellowfin Tuna to 55kg have come when trolling mid-water. Out on the shelf, Blue Marlin are being taken. The reefs continue to provide a good feed of Snapper and Trag. If you can't get out wide, head to Latitude Rock and catch as many Tailor as you like. Don't be surprised if a Kingfish jumps on. Bonito numbers have also started to increase.

Beaches - Lots and lots of small Whiting can be caught on most beaches. Be patient and a few bigger ones will come your way to provide a feed. Tailor remain small and not in big numbers.

Rocks - A few schools of Bream and Blackfish have been sighted off headlands close to town. General consensus is that these fish came from Smiths Lake when it opened to the sea a little while back. The Cobia taken by the offshore guys gives hope to those LBG diehards waiting for the Longtails to show up.

Estuary - Mulloway captures in the main channel are down a little, but this will change in the next week or so. The previously mentioned schools of Bream and Blackfish have in part moved into the lake and have been sighted around leases just up from the bridge. Whiting remain prolific throughout the lake system. Flathead have been a bit fussy, but this should change as the increased outside water temperature ensures the run in tide is closer in temperature to that coming out of the rivers on the run out.
