Weekly Report 12/8/11

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Aug 12, 2011 2:34 pm

Estuary: Tuncurry Breakwall seems to be the place this week to catch a fish. The black boat has fired well most mornings for blackfish. Plenty of good catches this week with some getting their bag limit in 90 minutes. They have been quality with reports of fish to 1.5kg mark, although most are weighing 700g-plus. The leases are also full of blackfish. Bream are still plentiful around the island drop-offs and among the leases. Indicators are that the fish go completely off the bite as soon as the tide stops running. Fishing the run-in tide around the leases with unweighted baits or Rapala X-Rap XR4 lures will get results. Reports this week indicate, just maybe, the start of the flathead. Rob Voorby and Warwick Thompson fished the flats last weekend in waist-deep water for some great flathead with the best measuring 76cm. All fish were caught on Rob’s own brand of lure known as the RV Lure range.
Rock: Still plenty of good drummer along most shorelines. Also good bream with one holiday visitor landing 3 over 36cm near Latitude Rock. He said he got broken off on another six or so right on the rocks – remember your net next time, mate. All these fish were caught on pipis.
Offshore: Still plenty to report about, with many successful days offshore. Extra-large pearl perch seem to be everywhere along with a good supply of snapper in various sizes and weights. Pete Lovell from Tuncurry’s On Strike Charters reported that his boat over the last week had rewarded anglers with great mixed bags of many large leatherjackets, pearl perch, snapper and flathead around 60cm.
Beach: Chris Maconachie from Forster Beach Caravan Park fished Seven Mile a few nights this week for a good catch of tailor around the 1kg-1.5kg. The fish hit hard until nightfall, then all went quiet. Tuncurry Beach has produced some bream along the edge of the breakwall and out to the end. Whole pilchards or strips are the pick of the beach baits.
It may be cold but the fishing is firing at the moment so get into it !
