29/11/05 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Tue Nov 29, 2005 1:31 pm

Offshore: The water in close doesn't look flash but you only have to go a couple of k's out to find 22°-plus. The current is pushing hard from north to south and a few boats have left behind anchors firmly embedded due to the extra pressure. What is great news is the quality of the reef fishing, particularly on reefs to our north. The snapper are all well above average, along with a mixed bag of jew, trag and pearlies. The whisper is that the kings down at Seals are big. Although the FAD has only been back in a few weeks it's worth a visit based on water temperature. Time to seriously start chasing striped marlin out wider.
Beaches: Very little structure exists on the beaches due to ongoing southerly changes ruining wave action. A few bream and whiting have been reported.
Rocks: Little if anything to report.
Estuary: The prawns are on the move again and consequently the fishing after dark is great. A surprising amount of big bream have come from the breakwalls, with the mulloway action down a little on last week. Flathead fishing is great throughout the lake and river systems. Lots of trumpeter whiting being caught at sun-up but by far the best whiting fishing will be for the big sandies using live prawns after dark. Crabbing continues to improve.
