21/4/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 21, 2006 8:42 am

Offshore: While not as much action has been had out wide, in close the cobia are in record numbers. The water must really be hot because over the last few days I've received three Spanish mackerel stories, all of which ended in disaster. We don't usually rig with wire in this part of the world! Snapper and big pearl perch have been caught, particularly to our south. Trag remain everywhere after dark. Most headlands will have tailor and mac tuna cruising past.
Beaches: Those chasing whiting have become expert dart anglers. Some tailor and bream are moving along our beaches.
Rocks: The LBG action continues with longtail tuna and cobia everywhere. Bait seems relatively easy to catch on site. Mac tuna, bonito and tailor will bother your live baits while you wait for something more exciting. Traditional bait fishing is going well with lots of tailor, some stud bream and a few small drummer.
Estuary: Mullet continue to school in anticipation of their spawn run. Only small numbers have run to sea to date. Mulloway will be waiting off the breakwalls where mullet, herring and pike are in numbers. Bream fishing continues to be best using baits after dark, particularly around the walls and bridge. Tailor can be found in the lake from time to time. Try around The Step on high tide or the bridge just on dark.
