Weekly Report 3/4/09

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Apr 03, 2009 12:34 pm

The Mid North Coast is currently on the receiving end of a significant south-easterly blow, huge seas and downpours. Given the fishing had been well above average in weeks following our last flood, this latest dose of bad weather may prove more of a short term hindrance.
In the estuaries, no doubt there will be some degree of fresh come down the Hastings and angling options will be created or temporarily placed on hold. Mulloway enthusiasts have already been eyeing the breakwalls. There have been good numbers of bream and flathead, together with an improved showing of blackfish. Best flattie reports have been from around the bend, with pilchards the bait of choice. Most fish have been 50- 60cm. If the river does indeed dirty up, look for the flattie action to continue in the lower reaches and the bream should improve considerably. We had begun to receive a few reports of quality whiting further upstream and any fresh may slow them down.
Off the beaches, a few bream, tailor and the odd school jew had been on offer from Lighthouse and North Beach. The large swells will put the vast majority of beach angling on hold but will also most likely destroy the few pieces of structure that had begun to form.
Off the rocks, tailor had been excellent particularly from around Plomer and Big Hill and should remain so once the seas settle. Best bets would be target blackfish in the more protected locations such as Shelleys Lagoon, which fired up particularly well when the seas first rose earlier in the week. A few early season pigs in similar locations could also be worthwhile.
Offshore activities have been curtailed. Hopefully we will have our boat ramp back by the time the conditions improve.
