Weekly report 30/4/10

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:11 pm

Estuary: With the weather reports showing all signs of perfect fishing conditions over the weekend, anglers should head out and chase those bream that have really started to swarm the racks and the cockle beds. All reports this week indicate nice bream are being landed on small ‘chunk’ style lures or bait. The best baits are mullet gut or striped tuna fillets, with chicken gut always a good backstop. A few reports of whiting hanging around the bridge at night; daytime is not proving successful. Still a few jew on the breakwall with some photo evidence of two nice 30lb fish caught on live slimies during the night. Blackfish are still plentiful along the Harbour shoreline.
Rocks: Mullet are running fast up the coast in tonnes. I suspect that larger fish will be following these, including tailor and good bream. Down off Charlottes the boys have picked up some nice drummer but however the longtails are still few and far between. A couple of nice female spearos have come into the store and reported plenty of kings around the Tanks.
Offshore: A lot of just legal mahi mahi out at the FAD. Plenty of nice flathead on the gravel beds during the day with a few reports of trag at night. Bonito and mack tuna are around in big numbers on most of the reefs and along the headlands. Still plenty of reds north and south at Seal Rocks or up off Blackhead Bowling Club on the close reefs.
Beach: All beaches fishing well with the gutters full of tailor and bream. A few reports of shovelnose sharks on both Nine Mile and Seven Mile beaches. Keep these – the tails make a delicious meal.
