Weekly Report 7/12/07

Offshore: Lots of warm water pushing down from the north resulted in several boats encountering marlin last weekend. Working close to the shelf, striped and blue marlin were caught. Large mahi mahi were caught as a by-catch of the marlin trolling but these fish are yet to move in closer onto the FAD. Some big kingfish have taken up station on reefs to our north but you'll need heavy tackle to stop them. Snapper and pearl perch stories continue to come in from the usual reefs.
Beaches: A real mixed bag to report. Tuncurry Beach has a few decent gutters on it and has provided some bream and an ever increasing number of tailor. Those targeting whiting are reporting great success in catching dart.
Rocks: While not a lot of people have been on the rocks, a few guys have caught some quality bream and some small drummer when using cunje. The LBG addicts must be watching the sea surface temperature charts with interest. The water at the moment is a good 3 to 5 degrees warmer than it was this time last year, so we will watch with interest for an early start to the season.
Estuary: A prawn dark is currently underway and the whiting fishing of an evening around the bridge is outstanding. Live prawns or nippers are essential. Mulloway seem to be more likely caught from the breakwalls of an evening, but sharks are proving to be a problem. Throughout the lake the whiting and flathead fishing is good on bait and lures. The upper reaches of the tidal zones are still dirty from recent rain and the bream lure fishing is yet to hit full stride.
