Weekly Report 31/7/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 31, 2009 1:31 pm

Several boats have fished deep water just inside the continental shelf. Large bar cod have been common with the occasional big kingfish capping an excellent day. Yellowfin tuna are also in big numbers out wide and are working schools of sauries on the surface. Catching and isolating a live bait from the school seems the best way to get the attention of the tuna. Trolled lures have not been as successful.
In closer, the inshore reefs are starting to provide quality snapper, with the best results coming on 7" Gulp Jerk Shads. Those anglers drifting for flathead continue to be plagued by leatherjackets.
Several people have reported sighting large great white sharks. These fish tend to move into the area when the schools of salmon arrive.
The beaches are not fishing particularly well except for the abovementioned salmon.
Rock fishing is being dominated by blackfish, which seem happy to sit along the coast rather than enter the estuary. The drummer fishing seems to be below average.
Little if any mulloway activity is being experienced from the breakwalls. Bream and blackfish are being targeted with very mixed results.
While the fishing has been a little patchy, the weather, for a change, has been excellent.
