Weekly Report 30/5/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri May 30, 2008 12:26 pm

Offshore: Sea conditions and water temperature remain excellent but for some reason the angling effort seems to have dropped off. Those that have journeyed out wide have found little on the troll, but dropping on deep water reefs has resulted in some amazing captures of bar cod and some large snapper and pearl perch. Inshore reefs are loaded with tailor and the occasional mac tuna. Trag have also been on offer after dark. Haven't had any reports from the FAD.
Beaches: Some big tailor continue to be reported, in some cases being caught off beaches in the middle of town. Excellent tides over the coming weekend should ensure plenty of opportunities to get a feed of the previously mentioned tailor and a few bream. Those using garfish as bait have reported excellent results.
Rocks: LBG season seems to be over for another year, although there are still some cobia about. Tailor and bream are of course up for grabs, but the drummer and to a lesser extent the blackfish are the pick of the fishing. Rocks at the base of Cape Hawke are said to be loaded with fish.
Estuary: Small tailor in the lower part of the lake are proving to be more of a pest than anything else. Several mulloway have been caught in the main channel using live baits. The bream fishing remains excellent on both baits and lures.
