Weekly Report 06/07/07

Offshore: Few if any boats have worked out wide. In closer, leatherjackets are again in plague numbers. Latitude Rock has produced some snapper and the occasional tailor. Even the local flathead drifters are doing it tough. Pike are almost as common as the jackets.
Beaches: Seven Mile Beach has some of the best structure/gutters seen in years. Tailor are very active, more so after dark. A surprising amount of whiting have been reported although few people specifically target this species at this time of the year. Salmon are of course going to be your by-catch no matter what species you target.
Rocks: Plenty of big tailor, bream and drummer are around, with a few holiday makers fishing within the town boundaries with a great deal of success. The rocks at either end of One Mile Beach and at Bennetts Head are often overlooked by locals.
Estuary: Mulloway from the breakwalls have been a little slow in recent weeks, but the last few days has seen some promising improvement. Of course the bream fishing in the lower part of the estuary system continues to be excellent for bait and lure anglers. Longtoms can be unwelcome visitors. Local blackfish weed is hard to come by, so if you're coming to visit, bring some with you. The previously mentioned whiting have also been reported near the net at the rock pool.
