Weekly Report 31/08/07

Offshore: The snapper fired up last Sunday after some fairly rough seas. Snapper Rock and reefs to our north produced consistent fish to 4kg. In the last few days the night fishing for trag around the area known as Elsies has also improved. Leatherjackets are still around but general consensus is that their numbers are decreasing. A few second-hand reports from the Seal Rocks area indicate the snapper and kingfish are in good numbers in that neck of the woods. Out wide the new Dreamcatcher II has already found form. On Thursday they managed to find a blue marlin around 120kg, small yellowfin and mahi mahi to 10 kg that were moving with a floating log. They have been working waters well wide of Seal Rocks.
Beaches: The tailor fishing has slowed but the salmon are still there, particularly on Seven Mile Beach.
Rocks: Early this week saw a continuation of what has been an outstanding drummer season. Conditions have been such that more than one angler has been standing on the sand at the rocky end of a beach casting at the rocks and pulling drummer after drummer up the beach. So does this make it beach or rock fishing? Last weekend saw the blackfish and bream fishing at the base of Cape Hawke also on fire.
Estuary: A few decent size mulloway have again been caught off both breakwalls. The new Berkley 7” Power Mullet is proving popular with these guys. This week a few ABT/AFC anglers have been visiting and took advantage of some terrific bream fishing. A lot of the fish caught were shiny silver in colour, having been chased into the estuary by the big seas. What was surprising was that these travelling fish had yet to spawn, whereas all the darker resident fish were spent and in poor condition.
