Estuary
The Tuncurry breakwall near the storm water drain is still producing nice sized bream. Fish the slack water in the eddies and top of the tide for the best results. Most anglers are landing fish on bait with Mullet Gut or Mullet Strip baits working the best. Good reports of nice fish both bream and flathead under the main bridge on the Tuncurry side. Best flathead report for the week was 97cm and weighing in at 15lb. The best bream was 974gr and measured just shy of 38cm.
Blackfish have come in this week in big numbers and are on the bite early morning with some anglers doing very well whilst others are struggling to land a fish. Get on the wall early to get a spot or try hard up against the leases for the big bronze fellas!
A few locals from down Coomba Park have also reported nice bream from the shoreline simply just using a peeled green prawn. Most fish are legal with a few bigger fish amongst the catch.

Rock
Still good reports from the rock hoppers with great fish being landed. Janies Corner is firing at the moment with plenty of reports of nice Tailor up around the 1kg mark however plenty of anglers have hit the schools of big fish with some fish being landed up to the 2.5 kg mark. Drummer are in full swing with some fish over 4kg being landed plus quite a few Blue Drummer (which are protected and must be released) are grabbing baits as well. Blackfish are plentiful as well.

Offshore
Make sure you take plenty of wire traces offshore as the jackets are there in a big way. Big jackets, some up to 60cm, have been destroying gear all week with bag limits in a 1 hour period not uncommon. Snapper have started to frequent the nearby reefs with Blackhead fishing well in close in around 12 -15 metres of water. Boxs of Flathead to be caught on the normal gravelly grounds.

Beach
A few reports have trickled in from the regulars who report that there certainly is a plentiful supply of Tailor on both Seven Mile and Nine Mile. Ganged pilchards or ganged garfish are the pick however chrome spinners such as Raider style are still working well. Salmon are scarce while a few good silver sea bream have been caught off Diamond Beach on dusk or dawn.
