Estuary: Plenty of good size bream down around the deep water channels around most of the islands. The Step is working well with small Ecooda Live Shrimp lures retrieved from the deep back up t the shallow water. Western Side of Wallis Island is also littered with bream in close along the shoreline. I am also told that using a vibe or blade is getting results. Plenty of good size Blackfish along the leases plus a few along the shore from the old Boatland Marine point with most anglers achieving a good catch most visits.

Rock: The last few days I have heard that some very big Blackfish in large schools have been feeding along the rocks from Janies Corner right up to Bennetts. It seems that the Drummer have gone off the bite this week with no reports. A lot of Rock Cod are around taking small crabs. A ugly fish but a delight to eat.

Offshore: The winds seem to have gone away for now but hey it is August so we can expect these for a few more weeks to come. This weekend certainly looks like it will be pleasant to fish. Jackets have gone off a bit but the gravel has rewarded a few guys with some beautiful Flathead. Trawlers have been working the area and I hear that there is miles of Flathead to be caught. A few ‘Pinkies’ have been around in close in the shallower water with some guys using Plastics while others are baiting up with Squid. Both are working.

Beach: A very unusual season with Tailor and Salmon a bit patchy this week. By now we should have seen a big run of both but it seems that today they are hear and tomorrow they are gone. Everything is lining up this weekend for a good time to chase a Jewfish with High water early and a full moon.
