Weekly Report 4/05/07

Offshore: The water temperature in close seems to have dropped a degree or two and those in search of cobia, marlin and mahi mahi have spent plenty on fuel with little result. At least the reefs continue to fish well for trag and snapper, although those in the know tell me the average size is down on recent weeks. If you want some tailor or bonito head for Latitude Rock as per last week’s report. Who knows, the cobia that were thick there this time last year might make an appearance.
Beaches: Mullet schools are starting to appear along the coast and with them hopefully some bream. Offshore winds have kept the beaches flat with little structure. Tailor are patchy. The northern end of Tuncurry Beach is loaded with small whiting and dart. A few mulloway have been hooked on light gear, only to be lost in the surf line. These fish have probably been hunting mullet that have run from Wallis Lake over the last few days and have made their way north.
Rocks: A reasonably tough week for the land-based game guys. Large Garfish schools off the various rock platforms have made these spots look very fishy but the results have been disappointing.
Estuary: Mullet have run from the estuary which resulted in some spectacular mulloway action as these predators took to the mullet as they left the main channel. While the lake is yet to see an influx of travelling bream, the resident fish are active and should provide plenty of action for those in this weekend’s BREAM Megabucks event. Once again those using hardbody lures have accounted for their fair share of bream, so dust off those old 'hards' and give them a swim. Believe it or not, the lures that worked so well 10 years ago still hold their own against the more recent $30+ models.
