Weekly Reports 17/7/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 17, 2009 2:26 pm

A push of slightly warmer water is sitting just off the coast and with it has arrived massive schools of slimy mackerel. Reefs to north have seen increased kingfish activity and even a few small samson fish. Leatherjackets are starting to get to the levels of past winters. Snapper fishing has been inconsistent. Might be time to get the lobster traps out.
Beaches will hopefully provide a few more tailor and bream this coming weekend as we head towards the new moon and the bigger tides that come with it.
Bream, blackfish, drummer and tailor have all been caught by those fishing the rocks.
The bream and blackfish action in the lake has been erratic.

From Sean (Sydney)
Iam a regular visitor to mid coast with hol residence at tallwoods village halidays pt
Were up recently during first week school hols in july with my brother.
He and I are regular 4 wheel drive beach fishos during the school hols we fish (9 mile )/tuncurry beach enter fr blackhead / backbeach all the time.
Though fishing was tough we managed to land some beatiful size bream about 5km fr blackhead entrance bigger than weve ever caught before all around the 42cm and they were fat.
Look out for possible photos in sun telegraph in weeks to come.
All caught on mullet gut !! Surprise during late arvos run out tide and admittingly days were cloudy /wet which seems to provide daylight cover for the fish.
Our usual source of bait pippi have somewhat all but vanished from all stretches of the beach seemingly due to storms / big seas which have battered the area the past 4 months so the mullet gut was a test with success. this bait all obtained from coop in tuncurry.
The usual suspects of dart ( bait stealers) were also caught.
There was no sign of salmon which was a suprise as same time last year some beauties were caught.When they are about they woulkd bite on any thing that moves.
