Weekly Report 1/2/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Feb 01, 2008 11:42 am

Offshore: Large schools of bonito remain in the area and these are attracting some big kingfish and cobia. Mahi mahi are to be found at the FAD, but just drifting in your boat is a FAD in its own right and will attract these fish. Several reports of samson fish have been received along with the occasional rainbow runner. Black and striped marlin are on offer for trailer boats, with the bigger blues further out on the shelf. The reefs haven't been as productive as you would expect. Based on the reports that I've been receiving, it's hard to believe that the grey nurse shark is either 'rare’ or ‘endangered'.
Beaches: The tides haven't been perfect but with a bit of effort you can rustle up some small tailor. Bream and whiting have been more common.
Rocks: A few guys at Seal Rocks have been successful in targeting some bream and drummer. No doubt some of the kingfish in the area could be targeted, but I'm not aware of much effort in this regard. Still too early for the longtails.
Estuary: The crabbing has been a highlight of the past week. Mulloway seem to have gone AWOL. Flathead and whiting remain throughout the lower parts of the lake. A prawn dark is about to commence and will see a lot of the best fishing done at night
