Weekly Report 18/1/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jan 18, 2008 12:20 pm

Offshore: The fickle weather persists but not enough to keep all boats at home. Over the last week black, blue and striped marlin have been caught from in close and all the way to the shelf. Bonito are to be found in big schools and with them cobia from large to small. Several kingfish in excess of 20kg have also been caught. Mahi mahi are at the FAD, but do yourself a favour and make sure you take live slimies with you if you want to catch big ones. The reefs have provided an assortment of snapper, pearl perch and the like.
Beaches: The beach fishing has generally been slow but improved tides over the next few days may see that change. Seal Rocks locals have reported a lot of whiting, bream and to a lesser extent tailor in the area.
Rocks: Little if any to report. LBG addicts should be encouraged by the cobia and kingfish reports but longtail tuna are still some way off.
Estuary: Blue swimmer and mud crabs are starting to get active so take the 'pots' with you if you're heading out for a fish. The excellent flathead and whiting fishing continues, and we are hoping that the mulloway will fire up a little as we approach the next full moon. Some big tailor have been reported in the lake and have been responsible for shredding plenty of soft plastics and robbing a few 'experts' of their expensive hardbody lures.
