7/6/06 Weekly Report

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Jun 07, 2006 9:29 am

In the estuaries, flathead remain excellent with good fish coming from most parts of the lower reaches. Reports also suggest there are excellent numbers of bream and blackfish in the lower reaches but these fish have not yet come on the chew. Lets hope this current bit of crook weather is the trigger which gets them going. Some nice bream have been taken from around Rawdon Island with mullet gut and strips gaining best results. Still a few good muddies around for the keen crabbers and crabs are in top condition.
On the beaches, tailor numbers remain solid with Lighthouse beach and around Laurieton giving a couple of excellent bags in between big seas and strong currents. Bream continue to be a little quiet although they are due to hit the beaches en masse pretty well any day now. A few solid whiting have also been snared from Lighthouse and around Lake Cathie. Slight cooling of the water has seen the arrival of the first few salmon. Look forward to some hectic sessions during which it is close to impossible to get a bait down to the more palatable species.
Off the rocks, drummer numbers continue to improve although ledges to the south produce better results. Shelleys and Miners have been worth a look, although Lighthouse generally produces well early in the season. Tailor numbers remain solid although the bigger seas have seen some of the more productive ledges difficult to fish. A few decent bream are also around the washes with evening and early morning sessions producing, particularly around Big Hill and Plomer.
Offshore, when conditions allow, snapper and pearl perch are on offer along with excellent numbers of kingfish but the current remains a day-to-day proposition. The flathead grounds are reported to be fishing exceptionally well with the 50m to 55m mark producing excellent fish. Few reports of pelagics.
