Weekly Report 26/09/07

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Sep 26, 2007 9:24 am

In the estuary, blackfish remain solid with good fish still available for those willing to put in the time. Both breakwalls and Limeburners Creek have been the pick of locations. Bream numbers have been reasonable despite the full moon, with Limeburners and the coal wall producing a few nice bags on late afternoon sessions with gut baits or yabbies. Flathead continue to improve almost daily with pretty well all areas downstream of Rawdon Island producing fish. The lower reaches of the Hastings have also begun to produce a few better quality whiting, although there are plenty of throwbacks. On the beaches, the terrific late season run of bream continues, with most sand from Crowdy to Crescent Head producing fish in varying quantities and quality. Some terrific whiting have begun to show up, with live worms doing all the damage. Fish shallow sand spits on a rising tide with the smallest amount of lead possible. Still plenty of salmon about in most deeper gutters.
On the rocks, drummer numbers remain steady with Point Plomer, Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head holding quality fish. With many of the fish yet to spawn, you should be able to confidently chase a feed of pigs for a few more weeks yet. A few tailor have shown up for those keen to rise well before 5am, while the evening sessions in the lead-up to the moon have yielded a few bream for those willing to put in the time. Still a few solid groper on crabs when the seas are flat.
Offshore, the reefs of Plomer and Lake Cathie have been producing a reasonable run of snapper to around 3kg along with pearl perch and plenty of morwong. Flatties remain thick on the sand drifts in around 50m. Leatherjacket swarms are beginning to thin noticeably but the odd patch is still hanging around the wider reefs. Yellowfin tuna are still around the shelf in good numbers. Those trolling skirts have also reported the odd billfish.
