Hi everyone the last day or so have been great but unfortunately it doesn’t look like holding off for the weekend with winds pushing up the coast and ultimately pushing most of the fishing into the creeks and rivers this weekend.

There has been a real increase in the number of cod AKA estuary trout in the creeks and rivers in recent months with plenty willing to steal your live baits and lures pitched in and around snags and logs along the banks.
Will was very proud of himself catching and releasing his first ever Barra on a soft plastics while fishing Rollingstone Beach.

Mangrove jacks have been thick in the creeks and some really solid fish in the mix - 45cm+, shallow diving hard bodies (Jackson Athlete is a great option), or paddle tail soft plastics rigged weed-less to get in tight in the timber. These areas can prove a challenge to pull fish from so there is no time for a lapse in concentration when cashing Jacks. You just can’t give these great fish and inch or they will brick you in no time at all. Another little tip is to use lures or soft plastics with a dash of red in them as this can sometimes make the difference often triggering a strike out of aggression rather than hunger.

There has still been plenty of salmon in the creeks, mainly blue salmon but the odd thready has been caught as well. Casting vibe style lures and trolling the deep holes and ledges in the creeks that are holding bait seems to be producing the better fish.

There are still good numbers of large bream holding on snags, small hard-bodies or smaller prawn imitation soft plastics are great options.
Savanna and Sasha had a ball catching whiting on a recent trip to one of their favourite beaches.

Riley loves his fishing and this barracuda took a liking to his lure.

The beaches have been fishing well for species such as flathead, grunter and big golden trevally that have been haunting around chasing the bait in close.

There isn’t much to report offshore with the winds getting up this weekend there doesn’t look like much chance of getting out there anyway. Looking further into next weekend things could be on the improve fingers crossed.
