Weekly Report 5/3/10

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 05, 2010 4:13 pm

Estuary: My regular spies this week have reported that nice-sized tarwhine around 23cm have been landed off the harbour breakwall on the Forster side on live nippers pumped in Ohmas Bay. Mulloway still strong with reports of 5 fish being caught this week. Live pike or yellowtail the pick baits. Pike are being caught on small gold minnow lures and the yellowtail are happy to chase size 8 or 10 standard bait jigs. The kids have been having a ball catching them after school each afternoon on jigs. A few bonito have been caught along the breakwall as far up as the co-op wharf.
Still a few good medium to large flatties and this week has seen the return of some nice whiting on poppers. The trick here is to retrieve these surface lures fast and let the whiting chase and attack. At times stopping the popper for 10 seconds will make those curious fish attack as well – you may well be surprised at the result. Bream this week are still on the bite on bait or small hardbodies. Fish anywhere around the leases in the slack water.
Rocks: Not much to report except for a few tailor around Latitude Rock.
Offshore: Still plenty of bonito around wherever anyone wants to fish at the moment – even in the Cape Hawke Harbour. Very pleasing reports from one angler who bagged out last Saturday on flathead out at The Barge in about 20m. Mahi mahi have been landed at the FAD. Local boys fishing the Interclub last weekend at Nelson Bay were successful with a few hook-ups and tags on marlin.
Beach: All beaches in the area have produced nice tailor on the standard 3-hook gang with pilchards as bait. One customer was kind enough to smoke some tailor for us during the week and delivered it for us to try. Very nice smoked with apple wood chips.
