Weekly Report 29/6/09

Post by Tony Zann » Mon Jun 29, 2009 10:43 am

At last, a few good days of weather might get those keen to enjoy some winter fishing back out and about.
The recent poor weather and runoff from even more rain has combined to see the offshore water temperature start to fall. With this comes the inevitable leatherjackets and the loss of gear to accidental bite-offs. Those who have fished outside after dark have done best with snapper to 6kg reported by several groups. Several mako sharks have also been reported. The inshore reefs and headlands remain loaded with tailor but the bonito that have been a feature for the last six months have now moved on.
Beaches remain heavily damaged from big seas and tides and have not fished overly well. Some tailor, a few Bream and the occasional school jew are the best I can report.
Rock fishing is in full swing with plenty of drummer to be had. Local NSW Fishing Monthly contributor Dave Seaman has an excellent article in the July issue of the magazine on how to target this species.
The lake yet again looks like a swamp on the run-out tide as torrents of dirty water from the rivers head out to sea. On the run-in tide, as the cleaner ocean waters push back the dirty stuff, is great for targeting bream from the breakwalls.
If you are coming for a visit to the area and want to target blackfish, bring some green weed with you as yet again local product is hard to find.
