Weekly Report 23/03/07

Offshore - Lots of warm water has seen a large array of pelagic species in the area. Wahoo a few kilometres wide of The Pinnacle, cobia at Latitude Rock and small yellowfin tuna within spitting distance of the coast are but a few. The reefs after dark remain loaded with trag, with the occasional red for good measure. Some kingfish have been reported around Seal Rocks. Mahi mahi are back on the FAD but the small black marlin are yet to return in the numbers we saw a month or so ago. Out wide there are reports of big blue marlin and local boats will be out there this weekend so stay tuned for more details next week. Live bait has been plentiful at the Bait Grounds and Latitude Rock.
Beaches: A small run of tailor last weekend and early this past week gives hope that the tailor season proper isn't far off. The bream fishing from the beaches has been unexpectedly good.
Rocks: The warm water has the LBG brigade out in force but I'm yet to hear of any notable captures. The tailor and bream fishing has been worthwhile.
Estuary: In the last few days several mulloway have come from the breakwalls on baits and soft plastics. Big flathead around the bridge are very active and are no doubt enjoying the run of warm water. Lots of bream are on the move in the lake and if you can find the fish the action will come thick and fast. Large sand whiting are still around but good quality live bait is essential to get the best of these. Blue swimmer crabs remain easy to trap.
