Weekly Report 1/7/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 01, 2011 12:21 pm

Estuary: The bream anglers have had a week of great results, with fish over 40cm common among the leases, especially around The Paddock and along the Breckenridge Channel. Soft plastics seem to be the pick with Squidgy Pro Range Bloodworm Wrigglers very common. A few of our older anglers who prefer to fish with baits have done well with striped tuna fillets cut into small strips. These anglers have also done well with the odd good-sized legal flathead as by-catch. The breakwall is started to fire well again for the luderick anglers. One local has fished most mornings and taken home a good feed each day. I have been given the heads-up from my sources that DPI Fisheries may well be checking luderick catches (and other species as well). Remember your bag limits and also your in possession limits and that means your freezer, caravan, esky, etc. Leatherjackets are in the lake in various locations – rig up for them and fish for them – they are great eating.
Rock: A few reports in from some regular rockhoppers. Good-sized drummer around Latitude Rock. Robbie Thorrington has been back at the Tanks and has great fun with XL tailor and a few rat kings. He has been using Samaki Torpedo 35g metals and Halco Twistys. Second-hand reports have come through indicating a few tuna are skipping the surface chasing baitfish off Charlottes.
Offshore: Much better results this week with mixed reports of nannygai, big snapper, pearl perch and trag. Jason Reed and the boys from Taree landed six reds last Sunday from 1.8kg to 4.5kg caught on floating squid and pilchards. Mark Scifleet had a successful Sunday out near the shelf with a box of nine mixed fish including some healthy bar cod and trag.
Beach: The beach is still a bit so-so after a lot of gutters disappeared with the big seas. North Tuncurry is fishing well with plenty of tailor and large silver ‘hubcap’ bream. Janies Corner is producing good bream. Most of beaches are OK if you are happy to fight salmon. I have been told that salmon are jumping on lures and bait with a few guys down south on Seven Mile landing more 15 fish over 50cm in an hour.
