Typical, I can’t remember an Easter without rain but our river system will benefit from it. We still have a hot bite here at the Rocks with good numbers of Spotted and Spanish Mackerel off Grassy Head There are lots of Sharks up there again so be aware of that. Scotts Head is fishing well with more Spanish caught there through the week along with fair numbers of Spotties. One or two Cobia have been caught out of the same location with one going around the 35 kilo mark. Wider off Grassy Venus Tusk, Snapper and Pearl Perch are coming off the bottom. There are still a few Wahoo off the Jail with trolled Jet Heads on wire working well. Yellow Fin and Long Tail Tuna are working from the Jail down to Fish Rock. Out wide around the FAD there are a few Dolphin Fish but still not with any size about them. Slimies are a battle with more around Scotts Head to be found.

Off the Beaches Smoky and Gap Beach has some nice Whiting finally out of the surf with a few Bream in the gutters. With just the odd Tailor coming in off the beach you will find more of these off the rocks at the moment. Rock hoppers are pulling in some nice Tuna with a few Kings off the ledges from the Jail and down to Hat Head.

The river has been slow for a number of weeks now. There are Bream along the walls out of the very clear water with the odd good fish amongst them. Flathead should be firing up this time of year but they have been tough to locate as well. Trying to find a bit of colour in the water is the trick. Up river to Jerseyville there are some good Whiting to be had along with a few Flathead reported with not much size about them.
On behalf of Rocks Marine Bait and Tackle we hope your Easter is a safe and happy one with some nice fish in the freezer.
