Weekly Report 13/4/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 13, 2012 4:07 pm

Estuary: A good run in the lake for those chasing bream. Good fish are out among the racks at The Paddock and have happily been taking Ecogear 40mm prawn style soft plastics. Greg Paterson and sons, up from Newcastle, bagged out on bream on Wednesday morning in 3 hours with the smallest fish measuring 28cm. Mullet are en masse throughout the lake with most channels fishing well with a float rig. The trick here is to berley up well and bring the fish on thick. Flathead are still lurking along the breakwall near Boatland Marine but the time is close to say goodbye to these tasty morsels for 6 months while they head up the river system for winter. Leatherjackets are being caught near the Forster Marina plus a few good-sized fantails were taken near the Tuncurry boatramp wharf. Tuncurry Breakwall put on a show on Thursday morning with the biggest mullet school I have seen. Thousands of fish schooled up in the channel and caused havoc for breakwall mulloway fishers with reports of lines getting tangled, etc. Reports of a 4’ tiger shark being landed off the breakwall on bream spinning gear.
Rocks: A bit of a ho-hum week with not much to report. Charlottes Head over Easter was shoulder-to-shoulder with visiting anglers but other than the odd report of guys getting bitten off by sharks I did not hear much more.
Offshore: On Strike Charters landed (got to the side of the boat) a 120kg striped marlin over Easter on 15kg gear caught on a Christmas Tree lure. Peter also reported that each day his charters fared well offshore with good mixed boxes of trag, snapper and good-sized jackets. Most reports from offshore have been positive from those that got out early in the week before the low pressure system hit us. Mainly snapper are being caught.
Beach: Beaches are hit and miss at the moment. Bream are plentiful and all are just on legal size (25cm). Tailor are there one day in good quantities and gone the next. A few good-sized salmon were caught on Seven Mile down on the southern end and holidaymakers have reported that they are catching dart off Boomerang.
