Weekly Report 5/12/08

Offshore: Kingfish numbers continue to increase, particularly if you head south. Reefs well to our north have provided some great snapper fishing with one visitor to town bagging a personal best of 7.6kg. The FAD is attracting more of the previously mentioned kings but the mahi mahi are yet to arrive. Huge schools of slimy mackerel have moved into the area, so it won’t be long before bonito show up in numbers to get an easy feed. Trag have been on the chew after dark.
Beaches: After some slow weeks, the beaches have come alive with bream and whiting. Fresh worms or pipis are best. Seven Mile and Diamond beaches have provided most of my feedback but other beaches are also worth a go. Salmon are still on Tuncurry Beach.
Rocks: A few tailor have been spun up and those who have done some hard hiking tell me that the drummer and groper are as hungry as ever.
Estuary: The mulloway are still active in the main channel and as reported last week most of those hooked are proving too big to hold. The flathead action over the last 10 days have been as good as it gets with several fish to 1.2m caught and in most cases released. A better line of bream has been caught in the lower parts of the lake system with some people commenting that these fish seem to have recently come in from the ocean. Lots of sand whiting have been caught, particularly on poppers. It's the time of the year to head up the rivers to cast surface or shallow-running lures for some bream.
