Weekly Report 23/3/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 23, 2012 1:12 pm

Estuary: Wallis Lake is back to its old glory with crystal-clear conditions right throughout. Still plenty of anglers getting nice size bream. With the transition of summer to autumn this brings the larger bream into the lower stretches of the lake waiting to go to sea to spawn. Top of the tide will get the best results. Flathead are still plentiful and are happily taking DOA Shrimp lures. Mud crabs are being caught in Beaky Bay, the back end of Pipers Bay and Forster Keys. Leatherjackets have started to move in with reports of plate-size fish near the Forster Marina and along the Breckenridge Channel near Paradise Marina. Forster Estuary Charters also reports large blue-nose bream are common along the eastern side of Wallis Island and are happy to take Ecogear Bream soft plastics on small jig heads.
Tuncurry Breakwall is returning plenty of small soapie jewfish on the run-out tide along with tailor on the breakwall ends.
Rocks: Warm currents coming in close to Charlottes Head have resulted in a few school jew lurking around along with the normal morwong, snapper and the odd mack tuna.
Offshore: Snapper from 2kg to 5kg have been common this week up on the northern reefs. Trag are everywhere and as some have put it, becoming pests. Second-hand reports of cobia down near the Graveyard. Still plenty of bonito with most boats getting their limits fairly quickly.
Beach: Not many reports this week. Tailor are still strong on Tuncurry Beach. The back of the Ruins is fishing well with salmon and tailor taking metal lures on dawn and dusk.
