This month is nearly over so make sure you get your whiting photos in for your chance to win this months Tackle World Challenge and take home the $250 Tackle Pack
THE ROUNDUP
The creeks have for obvious reasons been the most popular spots to wet a line in recent days. The stand out captures have been some good sized flathead and whiting which are great fun on light gear for the whole family and in particular these fish are great fish for the kids to catch. The beaches with creek mouths, sandbars and gutters close by are producing the best results in terms of numbers and quality of whiting with some genuine ‘elbow slappers’ getting around. When it comes to the best baits for whiting you can’t beat a freshly caught live yabbie, but the next best option to use would be sandworms or small peeled green prawns. Flathead have been getting around the shallow snaggy banks so if you manage to pull one from an area keep peppering it as there have been multiple captures coming from the same general location. Lures are a great way to target flathead as they are very aggressive. Both soft plastics and hard bodies have been working well just make sure your lures are in the flathead ‘strikezone’, which tends to be closer to the bottom.

There was a small window where the wind was slightly down for a couple of days last week. So there were a few boats able to get out into the bay, there was plenty of bait around but only a couple of the smaller mackerel caught, the water still had a fair bit of clearing up to do. So the signs are good, hopefully the wind gives us a break, in turn the water starts clearing up inshore and we get a bumper mackerel season.

The few boats that were lucky enough to take advantage of the good weather through the middle of the week last week had mixed reports from out the reef. There were plenty of disputes with the sharks taking plenty of captures away. The lucky boats that managed to fish an area before the sharks turned up reported quality captures in shallower waters of nice trouts and red throats. There were a few 8-10kg red emperor caught for the boats out for an over-nighter on the reefs slightly wider.

SUGGESTED SPOT THIS WEEKEND
The tides look good this weekend it's just a shame the winds are not playing the game, but the creeks and beaches look the like spots. The crabs should be on the move again with the bigger tides, June and July are traditionally great months for crabs that are nice and full. Placing the pots at the mouths of drains and bigger gutters and waiting for the run-out tide to push the crabs out is a good strategy.

INFO BOARD - Checkout our website for many of the local anglers taking up the "Tackle World Challenge". So get involved I dare you!

Have a great weekend
