26/05/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Fri May 26, 2006 4:37 pm

Offshore: No news from out wide but local game boats are hoping to have another go at the striped marlin over the weekend. The reef fishing is still good but a little off the peak of a week ago. I'm told the current is not as strong as it was. Once again best results have come from reefs to our north like Elsie and wide of Snapper Rock. A cobia was caught a few days ago on a floating pillie put out for a snapper. Tailor are common around The Barge and Latitude Rock. Small kings and mac tuna have been working bait schools in close.
Beaches: A steady supply of tailor is being reported but the results vary from day to day. Seven Mile, north of the snapper mark on Nine Mile and Diamond Beach have been the best. We are yet to see the best of the travelling bream.
Rocks: Some excellent drummer, blackfish and tailor fishing has been taking place. The travelling bream fired at Seal Rocks early in the week and hopefully they will fast-track their journey up the coast and into the estuary.
Lake: As mentioned above, we are yet to see the best of the migratory bream which seem happy to spend their time sitting around off headlands to our south. Best of the resident bream are still coming mid-lake. A few big tailor have been cruising the estuary, particularly around The Step and bridge. Leatherjackets are in plague proportions. Blackfish season is slow to start.
