Weekly Report 16/7/10

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 16, 2010 12:25 pm

Estuary: Bream fishing along the breakwalls and the lower parts of the lake has produced terrific results this week with most holidaymakers and locals using bait. Try fresh bonito fillets or mullet gut, these seem to be the only ones staying on the hook and eluding the pickers. The fine weather seems to have kept the flathead very active, with fish 80-90cm common over the last week. Blackfish have really hit their straps with great reports of nice fish on the breakwall but those who wish to wade across to Tern Island and fish the run-out tide will not return home empty-handed. If you are coming for a visit, bring your green weed with you as local supplies are scarce. The Step over the last few days has provided anglers with some small trevally and still a few tailor chasing bait.
Rocks: The rockhoppers tell me that they are having their best drummer season in memory. Spots like Mc Brides and Burgess are firing well, but some unexpected spots close to Forster are just as good. It doesn't matter what bait you are using – cunjevoi, strip baits or a simple bread roll kneaded up – the pigs are waiting to pounce. Those fishing a little lighter have experienced a great few days on the bream – a bit easier on the arms, as they don’t pull near as hard.
Offshore: While no one I know has ventured out wide, the CSIRO's sea surface temperature chart would make you wonder why not! Nice warm water early in the week was pushing down hard from up north. It seems that the jackets that are everywhere have come in closer to shore to find some cooler water. Most reefs, if you can get past the jackets, will provide small to medium reds, a few pearl perch and the normal assorted rubbish. There are still plenty of flathead up to 55-60cm for those happy to drift over the gravel beds.
Beach: Salmon are everywhere from Celito up to Seven Mile Beach. Tailor and bream reports remain the same as the last few weeks; one good report of nice whiting back down off Elizabeth.
