There is some good news this week with a return of a few Mackerel off Grassy and Scotts Head. Water conditions are spot on but just a sprinkling of fish in it. The bottom bashers are getting the odd Snapper, Perch and assorted reef fish out a little wider with a good current running. Out wide at the FAD Dolphin Fish hard to find in the good water. In front of the Jail once again there were a few Cobia caught with the odd small Black Marlin hooked in close. Sharks are in numbers like one kayaker found out when he had 4 around his craft then losing his hooked Marlin to one, snapped just behind the gills. Fish Rock and Green Island are producing King Fish with no size about them. Live Bait are in fair numbers off the bait grounds.

Off the Break Wall some Kings have fallen for bait as have the odd Cobia. One or two Jewfish were also caught through the week. Bream and Flathead are in good numbers out of the same location. In front of the Tavern Flathead are being pulled out of the snaggy drop offs. Whiting are still up river from Jerseyville to Smithtown, a small flushing would be nice to bring them out to the beaches. Boaties are getting some Flathead around Clybucca and towards Stuarts Point.

I would love to say the beaches are firing but I can’t there’s a lot of water between the fish but Smoky is your best bet if you can find a gutter to fish out of.
