Weekly Report 7/8/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Aug 07, 2009 12:25 pm

The glorious run of beautiful winter weather looks like coming to an end this weekend, but at least the last 10 days have provided plenty of opportunity to wet a line.
Several boats have taken advantage of the good conditions to fish deep water for species like bar cod. Just about every one of these boats has come home with quality fish, and left them biting.
In closer, the snapper fishing has been a little below par. Flathead and leatherjackets are still on offer for those that prefer to drift. Tailor remain common on the close reefs. Some trag have been caught after dark.
Seven Mile Beach has thrown up a few large tailor when you least expect them. Large schools of salmon are around the rocks at the northern end.
Rock fishing continues to produce some excellent blackfish with Booti, North Boomerang and South Blueys all fishing well. I've mentioned in previous reports the lack of big drummer. Those targeting blackfish over the last week reckon they have never caught so many juvenile drummer. It appears at least the big ones have been up to something.
Several anglers targeting mulloway from the walls have hooked what they believe to be huge fish. In all cases they have been too big to stop. I'm told that there are plenty of pike in the channel, so these would seem to be the logical live bait for a jew.
Nature seems to be running early this season, with lots of reports of big flathead already sunning themselves around the bridge area.
Whilst blackfish are schooled up all along the walls, under these on the sand are big numbers of whiting. This whiting activity also seems to be a little early. Bream are being caught in the lake system, but some thought needs to go into finding them, especially when using lures.
