With the memories of the sensational hot bite on the Wahoo the weekend before many boats ventured out in hope of a repeat performance. There were fish landed but not in numbers. Off Grassy and Scotts Head Spotties are being caught with a few Spanish in the mix. At the moment the southerly light winds are keeping the ocean conditions good. Long Tail Tuna have been off the northern reefs and of course the occasional Shark. Snapper and Pearlies have been on the bite for the bottom bashers with some really good fish amongst them. There were a few Wahoo caught through the week in front of the Jail with most succumbing to a trolled jet head shirt or a fast trolling hard body lure. Fish Rock and Green Island are holding a few Kings with the odd Tuna.

Some nice Bream have started to come in to river taking baits along the Break wall with one or two around the kilo mark. Once again the Jewfish are slow with just a few Schoolies reported. Shovel nose sharks are in numbers off the wall as well. Flathead have been caught in front of the tavern and down towards the cleaning tables at the boat ramp for the land based fisho’s. The shallows at Jerseyville are holding late season Whiting taking nippers or worms. There are good bass up river biting so take advantage before the season closure on the 1st May.

It was a little better on the beaches through the week with Smoky giving up Whiting and Bream with a few Dart still around. Rock hoppers are getting amongst some Tuna, King Fish and some nice Tailor that are starting to make an appearance off the ledges.
