Weekly Report 13/07/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 13, 2007 1:18 pm

Offshore: A rather frustrating run of weather has seen few if any boats venture out wide. Staying in close to headlands in conjunction with the predominantly offshore wind has been the best option with Latitude Rock one of the few spots to fish. It's provided some small snapper, tailor and even some sand leatherjackets which normally like deeper water. Let’s hope the coming weekend allows a few more boats out on the water but the current forecast looks like Sunday will be the first chance.
Beaches: There has been a bit of swell in the last few days which has been good for the surfers, but we have also experienced some excellent beach fishing. Seven Mile Beach just south of Forster really benefited from the big seas in June and has been providing some of the best tailor fishing in years. Of course the salmon are also there in numbers and will be hard to avoid. There are still some bream being reported along with an unseasonably good run of whiting.
Rocks: Once again the increased wave action has provided some excellent rock fishing. Bream, tailor and plenty of drummer have all been reported. Bread has always been a popular berley with drummer fishos, and this season I'm speaking to lots of them who are also using it as their bait in lieu of cunjevoi or abalone gut. It's certainly a lot cleaner and easier to obtain.
Estuary: The cooler weather and lots of wind action on a relatively shallow lake has seen the water temperature drop a few degrees in the past week. Lots of tailor have been caught at the area known as The Step, and around the bridge at and just after dusk. Those chasing bream seem to have done better on bait than lures in the last few days. A few guys leaving their blue swimmer crab traps out for a few days at a time have been rewarded with some late season crabs. The lake is still a bit dirty at the bottom of the tide as a consequence of recent rain, but is much improved from a few weeks ago. The mulloway fishing from the breakwalls has also shown signs of improvement, and the blackfish numbers are on the increase, although the green weed used as bait is still hard to come by.
