Weekly Report 4/3/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 04, 2011 3:58 pm

Estuary: Summer may have left us but the summer species are still in big numbers in the lake. Flathead have come on the bite this week in big numbers with many reports of bag limits in 2 hours. Barry Grose from Sydney had 15 fish on board ranging from 47cm to 62cm in 90 minutes last Tuesday. He fished the drop-off around the back of Twin and Cockatoo islands on the run-out tide using Gary Glitter Squidgy Fish. Local youngster Chad Freeman, 10, fished The Paddock last Saturday with his granddad Col and landed a beautiful dusky weighing 17lb and measuring exactly 100cm (1m), using live Herring. After a quick photo she was released back to nature. Still getting good reports of bream around the racks plus nice bream have been landed in Muddy Creek using hard body chunk-style lures. Plenty of baitfish everywhere for those that want to try their luck using live bait. Try a No 8 bait jig along the Tuncurry wharves for herring and yellowtail. Also good reports on plenty of pike around the wharf as well.
Blue swimmer crabs and mud crabs in the river are plentiful. Keep your eyes on your traps as I have heard that quite a few are being lifted illegally. A few reports from holidaymakers that Smiths Lake still has nice whiting up to 38cm.
Rocks: Reports of a few yellowfin tuna off Latitude Rock up to 6kg on live small Bonito. Still a few kings lurking around Charlottes Head.
Offshore: Robbie from Forster Fishing Charters reports a 50lb king being landed on his boat. Plenty of large dolphin fish at the FAD, with bulls in excess of 1m common.
Beach: Tailor have started in bigger numbers along the beaches, with reports from locals of fish up to 4kg. Best reports have been from Nine Mile Beach with a few salmon. Good-sized bream off One Mile down on the southern end.
