Weekly Report 22/2/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Feb 22, 2008 12:14 pm

Offshore: Oh, for a week of calm seas! As usual, the fish, if you can get to them, are everywhere. Cobia have been reported at Snapper Rock, Latitude Rock and The Graveyard. By no coincidence these places are full of baitfish on which acres of bonito are feeding. A few reports of Watson's leaping bonito and a couple of spotted mackerel confirm the variety on offer. The FAD, as you would expect, will provide more mahi mahi than you can count. Reef fishing is a bit slow, so stick to the pelagics. Black and striped marlin are in the area.
Beaches: The last week has provided some excellent beach fishing on Nine and Seven Mile beaches. No doubt other beaches have also fished well. Tailor and bream have been of a good quality and in numbers. Whiting and dart are there for those who want them.
Rocks: No real LBG action as yet. If you're having problems with the bonito knocking off your live bait, put a live bonito on instead. It's better to catch a king or a cobia than nothing at all. Lots of bream and tailor to be had.
Estuary: The estuary has cleaned up well after recent rain and is provided plenty of fishing action. Mulloway remain elusive off the breakwalls but at least there have been a couple of captures in the last few days. This in part could be because of the huge volume of baitfish now in the channel. Whitebait, slimy mackerel, yellowtail and bonito have all been reported. A small cobia was also taken in the lake last weekend and the angler in question gave it away because he didn't know what it was! The bream fishing has been excellent with a mix of travelling and resident fish combining in the lower parts of the estuary. Flathead are everywhere as are lano mullet and leatherjackets.
