Estuary
The focus area has certainly been around the lower reaches following last weeks small fresh which came down the Hastings. As is often the case, a few mulloway were encountered from around the break walls, predominately on hard bodied lures. Now whilst this fresh has by now all but disappeared, the full moon phase has kept a few decent mulloway around. If throwing lures is not your style, live baits or whole squid fished around the change of tide is also worth a go. Apart from mulloway, bream numbers have been consistent with the north wall still holding some fish to around a kilo. With the moon now full after dark, try the early morning run up tide with either mullet strips or yabbies your best bets. On the blackfish scene, this past week has again fished well with most locations in the lower part of the Hastings giving up good numbers of fish to around a kilo. One blackfish angler fishing the Lady Nelson Wharf also scored an added bonus during the week, catching and releasing a 93cm flathead on standard blackfish gear, not a bad effort indeed.

Beaches
Despite last weeks big sea flattening a lot of formations, some reasonable action has remained on offer. North Beach has been producing a few reasonable bream and the odd school mulloway, with live worms the bait of choice. Lighthouse has also produced a few bream from the northern end, whilst the southern section has given up the occasional patch of tailor. If you are seeking a better quality mulloway, the southern end around a full moon is always worth a shot, particularly if you can score a couple of fresh tailor for bait.

Rocks

The big swell of last week was again beneficial in moving a bit of sand from most headlands. As such, drummer action has been as good as it has been all season, with most ledges now worth a look. Cunjevoi, large prawns and hermit crab tails have all been successful. Apart from drummer, blackfish numbers have remained solid, with Shelley’s and Nobby’s both worth a look, whilst the Lighthouse has been giving up a few nice tailor for those willing to rise well before dawn.

Offshore

At long last we are finally starting to se conditions settle to a reasonable level, with the early forecast for this weekend as good as we have seen for some time. Hopefully by the time Saturday morning rolls around this will still be the case and if so, I expect a high level of participation from the offshore enthusiasts. No doubt snapper will be a primary target although there is generally some great bottom bouncing action to be enjoyed at this time of the year for other species like pearl perch, teraglin and kingfish to name just a few. Might still pay to make sure you still have a bit of wire on board though, as I suspect we haven’t seen the last of the leather jackets just yet.
