Weekly Report 30/03/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 30, 2007 5:14 pm

Offshore: The outside fishing was interrupted by last weekend’s southerly change but conditions have improved and should allow most craft back to sea. Yellowfin tuna have again been caught as a by-catch by those trolling for marlin. This is the time of the year we traditionally see blue marlin in deeper water so expect bigger boats to be working wide at every opportunity. Mahi mahi were on the FAD prior to the last change and if the water's still warm expect this species to remain in big numbers. The reefs should provide snapper, some pearl perch and hopefully a continuation of some excellent trag fishing. Reports continue to come in of some big cobia.
Beaches: Mixed reports but a few tailor and bream are starting to show. The next few months are traditionally the best for beach fishing so stay tuned.
Rocks: Lots of effort is made at this time of the year by land-based game anglers targeting the visiting longtail tuna. To date the fishing has been a little slow but the bream, tailor and drummer fishing has been quite good.
Estuary: Several large mulloway have been caught from the main channel over the last few days, including three on Wednesday night. Bream numbers continue to improve and the fishing from the walls after dark has been excellent. Still plenty of whiting being reported throughout the lower part of the lake system. Mullet continue to school up in big numbers in anticipation of their annual spawn run that won’t be to far away.
If the weather holds we are looking at an excellent Easter.
