Weekly Report 20/3/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 20, 2009 1:38 pm

The second annual Forster Fishing Carnival kicks off this weekend. It's a week-long event that also includes standalone ABT BREAM and kayak fishing competitions. Entries for this year are already four times the number of last year, with heaps more people to sign up at the briefing tonight (Fri). Check out www.forsterfishingcarnival.com.au
Offshore: The water in close has cooled and the fishing action has shifted focus. There are still big schools of bonito around but the cobia that were feeding on the bonito seem to have gone for a swim elsewhere. In their place have been some reasonable kingfish. Longtail tuna are still working the bait schools and several anglers have caught mulloway that are feeding under these schools. Mac tuna are also common. Mahi mahi have been a little on the small side. Traditional reef fishing has resulted in reasonable captures of snapper and pearl perch.
Beaches: Small tailor have been common up and down the coast. Fishing for sharks after dark has been very productive.
Rocks: LBG action last week was amazing with big numbers of longtails and cobia being landed. Sharks have been a major problem.
Estuary: Mixed results have been reported throughout the lake. Mulloway are still being targeted from the breakwalls on baits and soft plastics. The bream and flathead fishing has been good but not exceptional. Keep in mind that prawns are running of an evening and that these fish are probably up all night get a free feed courtesy of mother nature. Big whiting are being caught of a night on live prawns or pink nippers. The steady run of crabs continues.
