The beaches are still producing catches of Bream (yellow fin), whiting and flathead, along with the odd grunter. Peeled prawns and freshly pumped yabbies have been the best bait for the whiting, while strips of squid will work as well. If you want to get into lure fishing this is the best time of year to catch a flathead. All you need is a bag of soft plastics, some jig heads and you’re away.

Their has been good reports of bream, blue salmon and flathead from all the major river systems. The best report I have heard for bream is from Black Soil Creek just south of AIMS. Some good Grunter have been caught inside the cape as well. Their has been reports of good catches of school mackerel at Pallarenda barge, shipping channel, West Point, Paluma Shoals and the weed beds in the bay. Burley is a good way to attract them to you. Floating pilchards on gang hooks back down your burley trail would be the ticket to catching a feed this weekend. Other things that you can do are throw 25gm-35gm Bumpa Bars or white and pink snapback soft plastics in the trail as well. There are no barra reports this week due to our second ICE AGE this week. It got to 7*c the other morning, so it’s time to move further north.

The weather was a bit different last week with 10-15kts inshore but 15-20kts out wide. I only heard of a few boats getting out. Catches out on the shoals included cobia, trevally, tuna and Spanish mackerel. While those who got out to the reef caught coral trout, sweetlip and reds. While small black marlin haven’t shown up yet in any numbers at Cape Bowling Green.

Go chase a feed of doggy mackerel at the spots above and be their on the change of the tide early in the morning. The same apply to those land based this weekend who are after bream, whiting and flathead.
