Report 15/1/15

Post by subeditor » Thu Jan 15, 2015 2:24 pm

Estuary: My local reporters are telling me that the Lake is still loaded with fish despite the extra traffic floating around. Flathead and Whiting are still there in good numbers each day with various reports of fish ranging from just legal to good quality keepers. Baits such as local beachworms are working a treat while the Flathead anglers are buying up all our Eccoda Live Shrimp lures. Whiting lure anglers are happily getting their catch by using 2” Gulp Sandworm plastics. If you want to make the break from the crowds theer is plenty of fish amongst the racks further up lake around Beaky Bay or further up the Wang Wauk or Coolongoolook Rivers. Green Point continues to reward anglers who are walking the flats with plenty of Whiting taking poppers. Tuncurry breakwall is firing well with plenty of Jewfish being caught on large soft plastics or whole dead squid. Plenty of crabs in the system and with the full moon a few nights ago the prawns will start to run from this weekend through to the end of next week.
Rock: Most rock ledges are fishing well with a few holiday makers getting tangled with some quality Bream off Janies Corner taking cunjevoi or Hawkesbury Prawns as bait.
Offshore: The warm currents that are hanging around up north are slowly making their way down towards our area which in turn will bring some quality fish with it. However, Reef fish are everywhere in close with some good box loads of Squire hitting the cleaning tables. Trag, Pearl perch and Flathead are all on the chew as well. Local Charter Operator Forster Sport and Game Fishing skipper Shane Crockett has reported that all his customers have come home each day with plenty of fish. Shane reports that he has landed some big Pearl Perch up to 2.5kg along with a few small Kingfish being spun up on metals.
Beach: Plenty of big schools of Salmon are still around taking ganged pilchards as baits. Shovelnose Sharks are everywhere causing havoc. Southern beaches still have plenty of nice Whiting taking beachworms late in the afternoon.
I have been told that NSW DPI officers (Fisheries) are very active in our area at the moment. Please ensure that you obey all regulations. Current NSW recreational fishing handbooks are available from DPI Office in Tuncurry or our store.
A reminder that we will be open every day over the summer holidays from 8.00am till late stocking plenty of tackle, camping gear plus our new range of snorkelling and spearfishing equipment.
