Estuary: The Trumpter Whiting massacre continues each morning with over 40 boats on the lake on Friday morning at sunrise all trying to get their 20 trumpeters. Most reports are positive with 20 fish per person common back at the ramp. Trouble is it takes longer to clean the fish than it does to catch them! For those that are having a bit of trouble catching these tasty table fare let me tell the secret bait. I have in stock some local king worms that have been treated with our special ‘marinade – it works with one boat getting 56 fish between 3 anglers on 3 worms! Flathead has been outstanding with plenty of feedback from customers telling us that 40 cm is a small fish! Forster wall continues to produce quality Jewfish up to 50lb in the main channel. Live baits or large soft plastics are the main baits. Bream fishing is patchy but those guys that are working the racks and in the shallows on surface lures are getting fish. Spend the time doing a bit of research of the areas al you will work out their hiding spots.

Rock: Again a pretty quite week with not much activity to report. A few guys threw some metal lures around and got a few Tailor down along the Janies Corner shoreline plus a few bream have also been taken along most shorelines late in the afternoon.

Offshore: Not much to report except some red hot Flathead fishing. The best reports have come from the normal gravel grounds with double hook ups common. Fish in the 60cm range have been reported. Small plate size reds are amongst the shallow reefs and are really biting late afternoon once the sun drops low. Down south around Seal Rocks a few guys got into the kings over the last few days. Still nothing to report from out wide or the FAD.

Beach: John Davis and mates got into the Jews on Wednesday night on Tuncurry Beach for a good haul of 4 fish to take home between them. Whiting and a few bream are coming in along the gutters on both beaches north and south of town. Tailor are there but as per last week only small choppers.
For those that are after something special for Christmas (or just to treat yourself) I have some exclusive Shimano Japanese Domestic Carbon rods just landed in store. Suit soft plastic work plus some good rock rods as well. Normal retail is $459 on sale now at $269 !!! Absolute limited stock.
