Weekly Report 08/11/13

Wallis Lake is full of fish at the moment, with Whiting and Flathead everywhere and the odd Bream still hanging around. Whiting have started to take surface lures on the flats at Green Point and of course the old favourite FRV Stiffy popper will work at treat. Whiting in the channels are taking beach worms or Gulp Natural sandworms on a small jighead. Fish up to mid 30cm mark now are getting quite common.
Drift the back of Tern Island for a good feed of Flathead on plastics. Higher up the Wallamba River near the cattle crossing there are Flathead along the shoreline or Bream are schooling up near the channel markers just up from Riverside Caravan Park at Failford. Berley here is a must to get the fish interested.
Further up the Wallamba across the highway I have heard of good numbers of Bass with reports of ‘fat’ fish up to 40cm plus quite common. Just on dusk or late in the afternoon on these hot days is the best time.
The Prawn Dark has just finished and a bumper crop of prawns were caught. Every report I had indicated that 6,7 or 8kg a session was not uncommon. Next Dark is due to start around the 26th November so check your scoops and get amongst them. And remember – if you catch no prawns check your net, it needs to be cotton to get results!

A bit quiet with fairly flat seas at the moment. The only news is from my regulars who fish Janies Corner ledge for a few Bream and Tailor.

Great fishing is to be had offshore at the moment. Plenty of reports of Snapper everywhere, with Ethan Williams landing a good 6kg Red off Crowdy last week. Ethan and his brother fished the early morning and got a good box full after a few hours only to be forced home leaving them biting because of mutton birds taking baits! The Barge off Forster has Flathead around the 60cm mark with double hook ups common. No reports as yet from the FAD however on the shelf good catches of cod are keeping anglers happy.

Seven Mile down near the back of The Ruins is working well with a few Tailor early morning. Up north, reports are that Whiting and Dart are common along Diamond Beach at the back of the resort, while a few good size Jewfish were landed off Old Bar on Wednesday night.

Drive and boat safely
