28/4/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 28, 2006 10:12 am

Offshore: The ongoing SE wind and swell has seen most craft staying close to home. Some protection from the elements can be sought around Latitude Rock where there is plenty of action and baitfish. Oceanquest Charters are operating in close to our north and are experiencing terrific snapper fishing. The swell should decrease on Sunday, so get out there and see if the cobia are still around. Lots of sharks being reported.
Beaches: Some tailor and bream are moving up the coast and the beaches are looking good as the conditions settle. Locally, Nine Mile Beach has not been fishing well, so head south or go further north to Diamond Beach.
Rocks: LBG has been a challenge but the fish are there. The bigger swell has certainly improved the bream and drummer fishing. Tailor and blackfish are also about.
Estuary: Lots of little flathead, small mulloway and reasonable crab numbers. By this time of the year we usually see big migratory bream in the lower part of the system, but so far the season seems to be running a little behind schedule. Those that have travelled a bit further up the lake have found big resident bream and are still using summer tactics to target these fish. I almost sense that hardbody lures are back in vogue.
