Weekly Report 11/1/08

Offshore: The big seas have died down and in close schools of bonito can be found. The FAD is holding quality mahi mahi and several black marlin have been seen free-jumping in that area. Cobia have been reported, as well as some big kingfish, particularly when the bonito are in numbers. Don't be frightened to put a bonny on as a live bait. The reefs have produced some reds, pearlies and trag. Live bait, particularly slimy mackerel, are plentiful from the bait grounds through to Bennetts Head. The general consensus is that runoff water from the flooding in the northern rivers will make its way down the coast on the prevailing current, the effect of which is yet to be seen.
Beaches: The beaches copped a battering and are yet to provide any notable captures. Some small tailor and whiting have been reported.
Rocks: Several big snapper were taken from rocks in the Pacific Palms and Seal Rocks areas as the big seas abated. Drummer were also on the chew around Shelly Beach.
Estuary: The mulloway fishing from the breakwalls has been slow. The flathead and whiting throughout the lake have been excellent. Some reasonable bream captures have been reported but don't expect the ones you find today to be there tomorrow.
