Rocks
There are plenty of tailor about with quite a few fish well above the chopper class on offer for those fishing the more eastern points. Bream numbers to have been excellent with Point Plommer and headlands further north giving up a few top bags. Blackfish numbers also remain reasonable, with Miners, Shelley’s and around Flagstaff locally all worth a look. Drummer on the other hand remain quiet with only the odd pig from most locations. What we really need is a decent dose of rough weather and the water to cool by a few degrees to bring the pigs onto our headlands and get them feeding properly. In the interim, and especially if the seas remain calm, chasing a groper or two should be worth the effort.

Estuaries
Cream numbers remain reasonable from the lower reaches, however the quantity and quality has dipped a little from that enjoyed over the past couple of weeks. Given the absence of any significant rainfall of late, my bet is many of the fish have now moved further upstream. On the blackfish front, there are still some top fish on offer from the lower reaches, with both break walls and up to Settlement Point certainly worth a look. By all reports, greenweed is now achieving the better results. Further upstream, flathead numbers remain consistent particularly for those throwing lures, with the odd school mulloway also being encountered. If you are keen to target a larger model, the next week or so is prime time once again, with live mullet and the change of tide as usual the two primary keys to success. On the crustacean front, both blue swimmer and mud crabs still remain active, making this season one of the best most can recall. And at the moment the season show no real signs of finishing, so don’t put the traps and witches hats away quite yet if you are partial to a great feed.

Beaches
Some terrific action has been enjoyed over the past week, and should further improve in the lead up to the next full moon. Tailor numbers have been solid from most stretches of sand, with some cracking greenbacks taken during evening sessions from both North Beach and Grants Beach. The better fish have been taking tailor slabs intended for mulloway. On the mulloway front, school sized fish have been reasonably common, although the majority have been below the new minimum size limit of 70cm. However with the tides and moon excellent from this weekend onwards, chasing a better model could prove a viable proposition as long as conditions remain reasonable. On the bream front, both Lighthouse and North Beach have been fishing quite well, with the odd fish over a kilo taken. Pipis and mullet or tailor strips have been the baits of choice.

Offshore

Anglers have been enjoying some reasonable results with mixed reef species, however most concur the water temperature still needs to drop a bit to really fire our winter snapper season up. Over the past week bottom bashers have managed a few reds, together with some solid pearl perch and mid size kingfish. Those fishing evening sessions have also managed a few nice teraglin and mulloway. On the pelagic front, results have begun to slow however the odd nice mahi mahi is still about and will likely remain so until the cooler currents show up.
