Report 24/5/19

You couldn’t have wished for better conditions last week on the ocean and with the warm water and no wind to speak of plenty of Fisho’s hit the water in what was a very productive week. Spotties are still with us along with the odd Spanish off Grassy and Scotts Head. Some of these fish were caught off the bottom, not uncommon this time of the year. Good Snapper and Pearl Perch are starting to be a little more active out of the same area. Off the Jail Cobia, a lonely Wahoo and some nice Yellow Fin to 15 kilos were caught in about 22 to 23 degree water. If you are struggling for a feed good Flathead are on the gravel in front of the Lighthouse. Some bigger King Fish have moved into Fish Rock with good fish caught through the week.

The river Breakwall has fish well for King Fish with one holidaying couple hooking 4 in the dark on an incoming tide close to the mouth on Lunds Squid. There were a few Jewfish reported in the deeper holes up river near Jerseyville. Once again the Bream have been feeding along the walls along with some nice Luderick. Flathead will be harder to find as the water cools but some nice fish were landed around Clybucca on Whitebait and Mullet. We have had good reports from Smithtown with plenty of Flathead, Bream and a few Whiting coming in up river.

Rock Hoppers are cheering with some nice Kings caught through the week with Tailor, Drummer, Luderick and Bream off the ledges in front of the Jail down to Hat Head. Off the Beaches Tailor were a hit and miss thing with Smoky Beach your best bet. Good numbers of Bream are coming in off Smoky, Gap and Main beach around the Boulders.

We have quality Gar Fish in the shop in kilo and ½ kilo packs at the moment; they are like lollypops to the big Greenbacks.
