Weekly Report 12/10/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Oct 12, 2007 2:50 pm

Offshore: A great week for the visiting holiday fishos with good weather and reasonable sea conditions. The snapper action in close, particularly on plastics, has been great. A few unexpected kingfish have given those chasing reds a bit of a dust-up. A few pearl perch and samson fish have been taken along with the ever-present sand flathead. No reports from out wide as a lot of the local game fishing guys are in Cairns looking for 1000lb blacks.
Beaches: The terrific structure which has been a feature of Seven Mile Beach for the last few months has started to deteriorate. The next few days should see a strong change move up the coast which could reshape things again. Salmon are still everywhere. A few bream, whiting and tailor have been reported. Seal Rocks beaches are fishing well.
Rocks: Another run of blackfish has pushed up the coast, with a couple of rockhoppers successfully working areas around the base of 'the Hawke'. Several anglers have provided me with stories of big bream but when you find these fish they are only in ones and twos.
Estuary: Mulloway to 15kg have been taken from both sides of the breakwalls. In most case these have been on green soft plastics. Early morning in The Paddock will provide some excellent bream fishing but this seems to be mainly on bait. Whiting, both trumpeter and sand, are now worth targeting. The dusky flathead fishing has been excellent, with plastics on some occasions outfishing live bait. Keep your eyes open if you go for a walk along the walls. Several people have reported sighting some big kingfish cruising the channel.
