Weekly Report 20/04/07

Offshore: Outside conditions have been superb. Blue and striped marlin have been very active with nine boats raising 31 fish last weekend. In closer cobia are about with the Seal Rocks area providing most of the action. Mahi mahi on the FAD are a little on the small side. The reefs have again been alive with trag, although the reds have been a bit slow. Lots of just legal kingfish have been reported. Live bait is easy to obtain and is a must if you want the best of the mahi mahi.
Beaches: While well to our north, Old Bar and the beaches around Farquhar Inlet have been the place to catch big tailor. Beaches closer to home have provided their fair share of fish but you'll work a little harder. Calm seas and minimal wave action haven't helped. No real action yet from mullet or bream migrating up the coast.
Rocks: LBG is in full swing with longtail tuna and cobia and the occasional yellowfin tuna. Bream, tailor, drummer and blackfish are all being reported.
Estuary: Another good week for mulloway from the breakwalls, but fishing after dark has seen lots of big bronze whalers and hammerheads join the mix. The bream and flathead fishing has been excellent with shallow weed beds the place to find the best of the bream. Plenty of blackfish moving around in the lower part of the system but they are reluctant to bite. I'm told the crabs have slowed a little, but the quality is up even though the quantity is down.
