27/10/05 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Thu Oct 27, 2005 4:49 pm

Offshore: Once again, very few days have been suitable for offshore fishing and the coming weekend is predicted to have more strong nor'-easters. Those who got out last weekend found the trag in numbers and the fish were big. A few notable snapper were taken but the size was generally just on or above legal. Lots of sharks being reported in close with several different species operating in the same areas. No real pelagic action yet but records indicate that striped marlin should be on the cards if conditions permit.
Beaches: The beach fishos have already reported a few small patches of red weed. Whiting are present but the numbers aren't great. A few bream and flathead can be expected as by-catch.
Rocks: A couple of guys caught some small tailor south of town last weekend but the tides for the coming weekend are a little more favourable. There are some bream around and plenty of mulloway. Water quality is down due to the ongoing rough seas. This is bad for diving but better for fishing during the middle of the day.
Estuary: While still affected by the wind, at least the lake is fishable. Whiting, bream, flathead, some tailor, small mullet and garfish are all on offer throughout the system. The breakwalls continue to be the place for mulloway action and I was relieved to hear the other day that traditional baits still do the job – everyone’s using plastic.
