Weekly Report 28/11/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Nov 28, 2008 9:33 am

Offshore: With 20 to 30 knots of wind forecast for the next few days, it looks like another weekend for outside fishing will be lost. Several reports of some excellent kingfish at the FAD have been received, but do yourself a favour and get some live slimies into the bait tank if you want to catch the best of these kings. Even larger versions of the same species have been taken in and around the Seal Rocks area. Reefs will produce an assortment of small to medium snapper and non-edible reef dwellers.
Beaches: Diamond Beach has produced some small bream and whiting as has Seven Mile. Small tailor have also been caught, with the emphasis on the small.
Rocks: Not much to report. The rocks at Jannies Corner are as good as any.
Estuary: The current prawn dark is under way with plenty of prawns on the move. The lower parts of the breakwalls are again producing some big mulloway, with quite a few stories coming in of the 'one that got away'. Soft plastics have accounted for a fair share of these fish. As you would expect, the flathead and whiting fishing has been good, with live prawns ensuring a fish of some description with every bait put in the water. Sales of poppers have been booming with plenty of people just discovering how effective they are on whiting. The new Berkley Hollowbelly rigged in a weedless configuration has also been deadly on flathead. I've seen some amazing photos in the last week of some of the biggest mud crabs I've even seen come out of this lake. They look like something you get in FNQ.
