Weekly Report 12/4/13

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 12, 2013 2:03 pm

Estuary: My on-water reporters this week have been getting flathead down around Green Point on plastics. Fish to 65cm are still very common and are lurking in around 2’ of water. Further up near The Step, garfish are in the hundreds and most anglers are bagging out in 1/2 hour early in the morning. Bream among the racks are the biggest we have seen for a while according to the lake’s oyster farmers – skill is needed to get the fish out! Oyster racks in The Paddock are loaded with leatherjackets with some fishos are landing bigger than plate-size fantails on green prawns.
Rock: Not much more to report on last week. Still plenty of fish and sharks around. Very big bonito are being spun off most accessible rock ledges. A few reports of some big drummer up off Blackhead.
Offshore: Trag are around before dawn off the Graveyard while most of the normal close reefs are still producing good plate size snapper. Down south near Seal Rocks a few small black marlin are jumping with a few guys from the Lakes and Ocean FC landing small ones last weekend. Pearl perch up to 3kg are there along with good quantities of morwong.
Beach: Still a bit slow with no structure in place. A few tailor and dart are there but you need to work for them. Small jew are there at night but no reports of large fish.
Lakes and Ocean FC fished the Mid North Coast Deep Sea Championship last weekend. 14 fishos hit the ocean and came home with 184 fish weighing 201kg. Mixed boxes of trag, snapper, bonito, flathead and morwong. The club is always looking for new members, so head over to the Lakes and Ocean Hotel and ask for Richard for more info.
