It has been a slow road back to some reasonable fishing outside after the cool water moved in a few weeks ago. The end of the week saw a few Snapper being boated off Grassy and a little further towards Nambucca. One or two Trag and Pearl Perch were in the mix. With the water back up to 24 degrees hopefully the weekend action will be full on. There are a heap of Sharks wasting your time at the moment but hang in it just might be that prize Cobia you have been chasing. The FAD has been quite with only a few small Dollies. Off the Jail a few Cobia reported but there is a lot of water between them. Live bait has been in good numbers, that's a positive.

If you are searching for that monster Flathead now is the time with some great lizards being caught throughout the river system. Whiting are on the bite around the shallows off Jerseyville, a good time to try those surface lures on very light gear instead of the mainstay worm or Nipper. Bream are in good numbers along the walls with some solid fish amongst them. More reports of Kings and Cobia off the North Wall with a few Jew earlier in the week. Live bait is the way to go to entice these fish.

Smoky Beach fished fair through the week but there are no gutters to speak of making it difficult to find the fish. Main Beach has a few Bream around the Boulders with the odd Whiting amongst the Stingrays. Off the ledges there has been a King Fish or two with plenty of Bream and Tarwhine, but all in all a slow week off the rock ledges.
