Weekly Report 1/06/07

Offshore: Winter's here, but who would know it? Last weekend saw several cobia to 37kg taken north and south of town. The trag went off the bite just before the full moon but bonito have returned to our waters in big numbers. While the water has cooled a little in close, a huge stretch of 22°-plus water runs parallel with the coast 15-20km out. This is no doubt responsible for the quality mahi mahi that were caught at the FAD on Thursday. Snapper and some big kingfish have been common over the last week.
Beaches: Perfect weather and no wave action to speak of. As I write this on Friday, a big school of mullet is moving along One Mile Beach at Forster. Lots of sharks are being reported as a consequence of the continued mullet activity. Some bream and tailor are coming from the beaches but the going can be slow.
Rocks: Lots of blackfish, drummer and bream are being caught, with easily accessed places like Janies Corner as good as any.
The rocks at the base of Cape Hawke are also fishing well but as mentioned in previous reports some areas are heavily sanded up.
Estuary: Last week I mentioned Smiths Lake and how well it has been fishing. Reports have continued to come in along these lines including the news that blue swimmer crabs in that lake have remained very active. Closer to home, mulloway are being targeted from the breakwalls with varying degrees of success. More traditional bream and blackfish techniques are now working well throughout the lower parts of Wallis Lake. Leatherjackets are everywhere, as are long tom and pike.
