Weekly Report 9/4/09

Offshore: The sea surface temperature in close is pleasant but not at the level expected for this time of year. This of course could change overnight. Some cobia have been sighted by those targeting other species, but in all cases these fish could not be encouraged to take a bait. Bonito remain in big numbers around the inshore reefs, particularly Snapper Rock. Mixed with these are some sizable mac tuna. The reefs have provided a feed but have not set the world on fire. A night fish for trag could be a good option. The local game fishing club will go looking for blue marlin this weekend.
Beaches: Most beaches lost a lot of sand with last week’s big seas. Despite this, tailor and bream have been caught from most local beaches throughout the week. Mulloway have been reported off Celito Beach, but sharks are a problem when fishing after dark.
Rocks: The LBG season seems to have come and gone. Traditional rock fishing for bream, tailor, blackfish, drummer and groper has been excellent. A 30cm mangrove jack was reported from The Tanks earlier in the week.
Estuary: There is still some colour in the water on the run-out tide as a result of the recent rains. Mulloway remain active towards the heads of the breakwalls with almost all fish taken on the run-out tide. The first of the run-in tide has seen excellent bream captures, again from the breakwall. Mullet continue to school in the lower parts of the system in preparation for their annual run to sea. Blackfish and flathead provide options. Crabs have been very active.
