Report 31/10/14

Estuary: The number of large flathead (65cm plus) that are being caught in the Lake recently is a good sign of a summer to come. It seems every second customer has a story to tell or a phone photo to show me of the released fish. There have also been plenty of good size males around the high 40’s to mid 50’s mark filling keeper nets as well. A Whitebait on the drift along the flats or a soft plastic/shrimp Lure will always work to catch these tasty summer table fish. As always the run out tide is the pick but try and get into areas with little tidal flow as this makes life a little easier. The trumpeter whiting massacre continues every morning with our boats all but blocking the channel chasing fish. Local metho soaked beachworms are the dynamite bait while the 2” Gulp worm is equally as popular. Larger sand whiting have started and are being caught on both baits and poppers on the flats and around the bridge. A few reports of good bream in the Wallamaba River. Along the breakwall Jewfish are starting to become a little more popular while some good size Kingfish have also been taking live baits. Mud Crabs have started along the Muddy shorelines while Blue Swimmers are plentiful along the weedy sandy bottoms.

Rock: Plenty of fish around Janies Corner with a mix of Salmon and Bream common along with some super size Tarwhine early in the week.

Offshore: A few kingfish have been chasing lures out near the FAD with some success. Out wider a few guys have had some luck on the bar cod in water around 200 meters . In closer there are still plenty of snapper on the reefs along with plenty of other by catch species while late afternoons just on dark Trag have been caught while the gravel at The Barge continues to produce good size Flatties.

Beach: A quieter week on the beaches with a few reports of Bream and salmon schools in the wash. Tailor seem to be off with only the odd one being caught. Whiting are there but you need to work the gutters on sunrise to get results with beach worms.

This week's special: offshore rods from $39, Soft Plastic rod, reel, braid combos from $95.
