Weekly Report 17/04/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Thu Apr 17, 2014 4:40 pm

Winter just does not seem to be making its way to our area with fishing still at its best. The Lake this week still produced Flathead up to the mid 40-50cm mark with quality Bream now amongst the racks feeding on baits. Bait fishers should target the Flathead with either Whitebait on a small gang rig and for the Bream Hawkesbury River prawns or chicken/mullet gut is working the best. I am told that this week one angler landed 9 Bream all over 35cm using whitebait coated in Pro – Cure Gel. A few guys also worked the sand flats at the back of Lani’s caravan park with Live Shrimp lures for some nice Flathead on the run out tide.

Tuncurry wall is producing nice Blackfish with good catches just east of the Fish Co op. Whilst on the wall, Jewfish are back and have been taking live Pike or large Kokada 9” soft Plastics on the run out tide.

Mid next week will see a Prawn Dark around Tuesday night. Plenty of cotton prawn scoop nets in stock.

No reports at all this week. Although, those wanting to try the rocks should see plenty of Bream, Drummer, Blackfish and groper action.

Charter Operators have reported that offshore has fished well over the last week with good size flathead being landed on the gravel patches. Still a few Cobia around off the Graveyard along with some Snapper on Elsies reef.

I have also had reports that Leather Jackets are starting to move in. Commercial trappers had had good catches with some recreational anglers getting amongst them most days. Dollies are still out around the FAD.


Tailor on the beach with good reports from Tuncurry and at the back of Tiona. Plenty of Mullet running the beaches as well which in turn has bought the sharks in close.

Happy Easter to all and we will be open every day from 8.00am.
