Report 20/5/16

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri May 20, 2016 10:19 am

Estuary: Another great week in the Lake with plenty of good size bream around for taking. It seems that bait fishos are getting better results than the lure guys with a oily bait like stripy tuna fillets the pick. Blackfish remain strong up in the Lake with some fish reported up to the 35cm mark being caught. Weed is a problem within the immediate areas however those that have travelled out of town and sourced it elsewhere have been rewarded for their efforts. Reports are still filtering in of some nice flathead being caught on the drift along the grassy flats. Tailor are hanging around the bridge chasing metal lures at night. A few Jewfish have been caught along the Tuncurry wall late afternoon on whole squid baits.

Rock: Janies Corner seems to be the pick this week with plenty of reports of Tailor and Bream along the shoreline. Plenty of quality Drummer and Blackfish in most areas for taking. Seal Rocks has seen plenty of Mack Tuna being caught however the Sharks in that area are proving to be a real nuisance. Bronze Whalers, Tiger and Whites have been sighted over the last week by rock fishos. One report I received from a group of guys was that a Spear Fisherman came scrambling up the rocks where they were fishing last weekend with a Tiger Shark following him. The fishos tied a half eaten Mack on the rocks and watched the Tiger leap up to eat the Tuna. The pool at home or fishing on top of the water suits me just fine thanks!

Offshore: Spanish Mackeral are still in small numbers up north around Dennis Shoals and Snapper Rock. However, this week has seen plague numbers of Snapper. Fishing ranging from 9.6kg down to plate size at 2kg have been common. Fish are being caught mainly in the shallow water around the 8-10m mark and will take squid baits or soft plastics on a light jig head. On Strike Charters also reported that his charters this week caught plenty of Flathead and Mowong along with heaps of Reds.
Beach: Beaches are firing well with mixed bags of Dart, Bream and Flathead. Shovelnose Sharks are a pest and will pinch your bait all session if they are around. Jew numbers are down but the few that have been caught are all taking beach worms.
