Weekly Report 15/11/13

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Nov 15, 2013 2:18 pm

The prawn dark will be underway within the next few weeks, and if last month’s catches are any indication of the year ahead we will have a bumper crop this year! Remember that Wallis Lake has greasy back prawns and only a cotton prawn net will get results – nylon netting will allow the prawns to slip through (we have cotton prawn scoop nets in stock plus replacement netting if required).

The breakwall over the last few days has produced some big mulloway, with a few stories coming in of the 'one that got away'. Steve Vale was successful on Sunday to land a 70lb Jew while a few other guys picked up fish around the 30lb plus mark. A variety of baits were used including 7” Gulp Soft plastics and dead squid baits, and livebait is doing very well also.

The whiting fishing has continued to be outstanding, with a lot of large sand whiting starting to school in the Lake. Flathead are there in small numbers, but good fish are being caught. Blackfish are still along the wall. With live prawns ready to run again, this will ensure a fish of some description with every bait put in the water.

Poppers have rewarded whiting fisherman along the flats. Green Point along the sand has produced whiting in the 40cm class, plus The Step is loaded with good size trumpeter.

Crabs, both blue swimmer and mud, have started and are strong around Pipers Bay.

Good catches of tailor have been reported along the rocks near Blueys, while closer to town I am told that bream are everywhere near The Tanks.

Still only a few reports. Same as last week – plate size to large snapper north, flathead on the Gravel, trag down around The Graveyard. Further south off Seal Rocks again good snapper in close.


Dart, bream and whiting are all common species at the moment on most beaches. Seven Mile (northern end) has produced some good bream and small tailor with the emphasis on small. Blackhead and Diamond are loaded with dart in the early morning, taking whitebait. Beautiful whiting have been caught on South seven mile.
