Report 03/10/14

Estuary: The back of the lake along The Step each morning has produced bag limit catches of Whiting. Most anglers are targeting these tasty morsels with beach worm pieces or 2” Sandworm gulp soft plastics. The last of the run out tide is working the best. Flathead have remained stable this week with lure anglers working the Flats on a run out tide getting good results. Deep drop offs with baits will also get results. Bait such as Mullet Strips or Hawkesbury Prawns will work while lures like the Live Shrimp 70mm or ZMan Minnowz are deadly. The breakwall is firing with reports of Jewfish common caught late afternoon/early evening on the run out tide. Crabs are plentiful in the Lake with both Blue Swimmers and Muddies filling traps.

Rock: A few holiday makers worked Janies Corner the other afternoon for a good mixed bag of large Salmon, Bream and Tailor. Ganged Pilchards was the bait of the day. Further near town Burgess Beach rocks have worked well with again quality bream and a few Drummer still around.

Offshore: Another cracker week offshore with every boat getting a feed. The normal catches such as Snapper and Flathead are common with northern reefs as far as Old Bar and beyond all firing. A few Trag are around along with plenty of Pigfish. Rat kingfish have been grabbing trolled metals heading in and out to the grounds.

Beach: Elizabeth Beach down south has Whiting all over it in close in the gutters taking beachworms. A few Tailor are around however Salmon seem to be making a run. Reports of fish 4kg plus have been common.

For those visiting this weekend we will be open every day from 7.45am till late. NOW in store is our new range of Spearfishing and Snorkelling Gear.
