Well, the windy weather is back with 20 knots plus for most of the week, so there's been no offshore fishing, but on the inshore areas there has been some excellent grunter and some top quality snapper with an odd sweetlip and red jew.

In around the river mouths on an early morning high tide there's been some ripper tailor caught while trolling the break walls, with Mann’s 10+ lures, small Halco spoons and Flasha lures all producing the goods. There's still a lot of school mackerel and small grey mackerel mixed in with the tailor. Troll the same lures as above and this should put you in the action.

The rivers are still producing some top quality fish including big grunter, bream, flathead and some great whiting.

Over the last few weeks we have been using some new soft plastics on whiting and having huge success catching big ones, and plenty of them. The product is Berkley Gulp and their new Sand Worms come in a few colours - bloodworm, natural and camo. We use them on a conventional jighead, and we have even had a few anglers tell us that they find them better than real bait.

In the dams the bass are on the chew. Most are in the deep water and jigging plastics such as Jackalls and Tropic Angler Shad Rattlers have been getting them going.

The barra have slowed a bit with the cooler weather but a few of the keener guys have been getting one or two a day by fishing the shallow bays with shallow diving lures retrieved really slowly.

Best breezes,
