Beaches
There have been plenty of tailor and salmon turning up on most beaches. The best times to chase these pelagics are low light periods and fishing on neap tides for a few reasons -- the baitfish are always a bit disorientated when tides are changing, and the tailor and salmon use this to their advantage. Additionally, the slower periods of the tide allow the fish to use less energy, making it easier for them to get a quick snack before the tide rushes again.The mulloway have been patchy; a few fish have been getting caught but no monsters of late. Bream and Whiting are starting to make their presence felt, with a few falling to worms, nippers and the humble whitebait.

Rivers
The rivers have been firing well over the past few weeks due to some rain we have had that helped flush out the lower reaches. They have been fishing well for Mulloway, Bream and Whiting. Flathead are starting to slowly come on the chew with a few reports of some good bags coming through in the past few weeks. Most anglers have been using smelly baits (crabs, worms and pipis) on the top of tides on the bottom due to this dirty water still about. Most lure throwers have been doing well; 3-5" minnows and shads worked slowly are producing good numbers. Blackfish are doing well on the top of the tides, with fresh cabbage doing the damage. The odd one has been getting caught on nippers on the top of tide as well.

Rocks
The rocks have been hit and miss, with some days firing and others dismal. Most anglers have been chasing a feed of drummer with the odd groper around. Baits ranging from bread and crabs to cooked prawns are all getting their share, it's just a matter of putting the time in. Fishing neap tides always the best option and berley helps keep them close at your feet. A few tailor and salmon are getting around, with most coming undone to metals, poppers and hardbodies. Pillies, bonito, squid and mullet have also been working well.
