Estuary: Over the last week the lake has been sensational for those that like chasing bream. Oyster Racks amongst the paddock is producing quality fish to the high 30cm mark on the top of the tide and plenty of them. Some ask what is the method - a bit of burley, either no weight or very little if there is a bit of current and good baits such as mullet gut, Hawkesbury Prawns or bread moulded onto your hook. Float it down the burley trail and hang on! A good quality leader is required as they have taken plenty of anglers around the posts and snap! Working a hard body or a metal vibe will work just as well on a slow retrieve. Jewfish are plentiful along the breakwall and are happy to take either a soft plastic or live Herring – last 2hrs of the run out works the best. A few Flathead are in the Breckenridge Channel and will take a Whitebait on the drift or as always will chase a soft plastic such as a Live Shrimp lure – these are now back in store at 3 for $20!!
Rock: I am hearing that LBG Guys have got amongst a few good Northern Bluefin Tuna off Seal Rocks plus Charlotte Headland. Others are doing well off Burgess Rocks with some good Bream taking baits.
Offshore: Most locals and visitors who fished this week were rewarded with good mixed boxes of fish. Flathead, small Reds to the 45cm mark, Trag are common. XOS Kingfish up to 20kg plus mark are giving anglers a run for their money. Reports of fish breaking 300lb hand lines have been received and for those that have landed a few fish around the 12-14kg mark have been happy. Snapper Rock is still working well with plenty of Spotty and Spanish Macks plus good Kings as well.
Beach: Good reports from Janies Corner for quality large Tailor. Last weekend saw the area firing as many anglers are leaving the area with fish still on the bite. Tuncurry Beach half way up to the Tip (back of Browns Track) has a few Tailor early morning or on sunset along with heaps of Dart.
