Weekly Report 2/3/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 02, 2007 2:21 pm

Offshore: After a drop in water quality and colour last week, the situation has improved and the black marlin are back on in good numbers. Lots of boats fishing the Interclub tournament out of Port Stephens last weekend fished wide of Cape Hawke and Seal Rocks. Several quality blue marlin have also been caught. Mahi mahi have also appreciated the rise in temperature and are again at the Fisheries FAD. There has been lots of baitfish activity in close, which is encouraging. For those working out wide wahoo are common but their razor-sharp teeth are hard on gear. The reefs will provide a feed of snapper and the like. Charter operators are reporting lots of trag and giant nannygai.
Beaches: The last few days have also seen an improvement in the beach fishing with some better quality tailor now being caught. Whiting and some bream are still being taken using beach worms as bait. The occasional mulloway has been on offer.
Rock: We are still yet to see the LBG action start, but March is usually the month for this to happen.
Estuary: Quite a few mulloway have been reported from the Tuncurry breakwall over the past week. Nine-inch soft plastics continue to account for the majority of these. The flathead and whiting fishing in the estuary remains good with some better quality bream also being reported. General consensus is that the flathead are moving into the rivers and that the numbers in the lower part of the lake have thinned. Mullet are starting to school up in the lake which is a sure sign that a change of season isn't far off.
