Weekly Report 4/4/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 04, 2008 11:04 am

Offshore: The patch of cooler water remains in close but a strong current line of warmer water can be found about half-way to the continental shelf. One boat worked the Seal Rocks Canyons last weekend with no action other than that provided by mahi mahi. The fishing at the FAD has been patchy. The reefs in closer have continued to provided some good snapper and other assorted reef species. Bait schools remain everywhere, but it seems the only thing working them is bonito and the occasional mac tuna. Lots of small kingfish at Latitude Rock.
Beaches: Great dawn and dusk high tides at the moment are making for some steady tailor and bream fishing. Most beaches are delivering the goods. The southern end of Celito Beach and the adjacent rocks have provided some excellent bream. A couple of accidental mulloway captures have been reported.
Rocks: The LBG crew have had their fair share of longtail tuna coming through, with fish taken at both Booti Booti and Charlottes. I've a second-hand report of cobia off the rocks at Seal Rocks. Bream, drummer and tailor are all being targeted up and down the coast with great results. There are still lots of requests for abalone gut for bait for those chasing drummer. For those that don't know, it's illegal to use ab gut until further notice in an attempt to stop the spread of a virus from abalone in southern waters.
Estuary: The mulloway that have been missing for most of the summer are back. Live bait of all descriptions can be found in the main channel and are proving the most effective bait for the jew. Quality bream are being caught from the heads right up to the Cooloongolook River. Mullet and leatherjackets will provide an alternative to
those sick of catching bream and flathead. There is no stand-out lure at the moment, but the bream boys continue to have a lot of fun, and success, on all manner of surface lures.
