Report 5/7/19

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Jul 05, 2019 9:30 am

Not a great deal to report from outside last week with big swells and an ugly river Bar only a few battled the conditions to try and get a feed. Off Grassy and Scotts there were some nice Snapper coming in off the close grounds. Green Island and Fish Rock has been holding King Fish but it has been uncomfortable fishing. Down towards Hat Head Leather Jackets are starting to make an appearance and reports are that down around Port Macquarie they are thick.

On the positive side our river is fishing well for Bream and there are plenty of good fish amongst them. Off the Break Wall you will find Bream up to 40cm using Gut, Mullet and Prawns. Blackfish continue to be in good numbers along the walls and it is well on the way to being one of our better seasons for some time. If you haven’t fished for these sport fish before come in and see us and we will set you up with the basics to catch these tasty fish. The recent rain has turned on our resident Jewfish with some nice fish caught through the week. There were a few Flathead caught but they are getting harder to find as the water cools. Estuary Cod are appearing throughout the river system but be careful they are a still a protected species.

The beaches have been up with the big swells but if you can get on Smoky Beach good Bream are running now with some nice Tailor early mornings. Rock hoppers are getting amongst Drummer, Bream and Tailor all with a watchful eye on the rising seas.
