Calm conditions have dominated proceedings of late, making for ideal boating conditions. The word out on the reef is TUNA. They are everywhere busting up the surface inside the paddocks and out on the shelf. They are mainly mack and stripey tuna schools, which make for great fun spinning metal slugs on light gear. The bottom fishing is slow and you need to fish 40m plus for best results. There are a few Spanish mackerel around and trolling gold Halco lures is best.
Along the beaches the shore has been nice and flat, ideal for fly fishing. Early mornings are producing queenfish, dart, tarpon and giant herring. Best patterns are deceiver and clouser patterns in white flash and chartreuse. Being on the beach at daylight is paramount to being successful.
In the rivers and creeks a bit of rain has stirred proceedings and run off from small creeks are prime spots. If you know where to go, there are quality live prawns to be found and are on the bigger side, not escaping through cast nets. Barra, jacks, grunter and fingermark all have featured regularly of late. Incoming and the first hour of the run out tide are producing best results.
