Weekly Report 28/3/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 28, 2008 11:33 am

Offshore: Looks like another good weekend coming up. The water in close has gone a little cold and dirty but a big warm current will be found not far out and will hopefully liven up the fishing at the FAD. The reef fishing of recent weeks has been overshadowed by the pelagic action. This has turned around, with reports of quality reds, pearlies and, after dark, plenty of trag. The best of the bonito schools are up north at Snapper Rock. Marlin continue to be sighted by those not targeting them. A few reports of pesky leatherjackets have come from the flathead drifters.
Beaches: Hasn't been the best week of tides for beach fishing but despite this a steady supply of tailor and bream stories are coming in. Seven Mile and Nine Mile beaches are said to be well-formed with plenty of good quality water in close.
Rocks: The LBG crowd have been a little quiet, or maybe they're keeping things to themselves. If you can't catch a bream at the moment you're hard done by. Drummer are in big numbers everywhere.
Estuary: A couple of small mulloway from the breakwalls over the last week, but that's it. The amount of baitfish in the channel is unbelievable and no doubt the major predators are too well-fed. The bream once again have been far and away the easiest species to target (other than flathead). Mullet continue to school in preparation for their run to sea. Blue swimmer crabs have again become active, but this seems to change weekly.
