Offshore we've been getting lots of pearlies over the last couple of weeks, coming out of 30-40m of water. There have been snapper and trag with them as well, although not in the same numbers.

We're seeing a good run of tuna at the moment, with specimens up to around 25kg, which is good to hear for early in the season.

The tailor are starting to slow up. You can still get them out of the washes from the islands but they're less common.

Coming back in to the beaches we've been getting good numbers of quality bream. The whiting are also starting to come on the chew again. Plenty of them are being caught in the shallows on beach worms.

Off the headlands you are still able to get the odd tailor, but they're a bit spread out at the moment. There's still the odd pig and groper getting caught off the stones, with a few solid specimens reported last week.

Back into the river and we're getting some good runs of school jew, which are being caught around most bridge pylons in any of the systems. There are also plenty of good bream in the system. A lot of people are starting to use poppers and walk the dog style lures for bream, with good results. Whiting are amongst them as well, although they're not yet as active as the bream. The whiting will start to switch on more as temperatures rise.

The next big thing is the jacks. They're starting to come on the chew, and we're slowly seeing more of them caught. Although the best time for jacks is around November, it's good to get in early before everyone targets them.
