Estuary: The run out tide continues to keep the Flathead on the bite each afternoon this last week with most fish concentrating on the lower parts of the Lake around the Flats near The Paddock. Mosquito Island is also a must try area on the run out with some good size fish coming off the corner of the island in very shallow water. If you're after bream, work the racks at dusk with a light rig and fish either small hard body lures or the old faithful Hawkesbury Prawn does wonders. Whiting are in good numbers and have been taken after dark around the bridge on the Tuncurry side, however live nippers or a local beach worm bait is a must.

Rock: I've started to receive reports of fish such as Cobia and small Yellowfin being taken by LBG anglers but details are sketchy and locations etc are being kept close to their chest. A few kings are around and with plenty of bait in close there is no problem to catch fresh on site.

Offshore: A good stretch of warm water has taken up position along the coast and with this has bought in plenty of fish. Mahi mahi remain in big numbers out at the FAD, although trying to get past the little fellas is a problem. Kingfish are there for takings as are the bonito. Black Marlin continues to be everywhere and were encountered over the past week by plenty of recreational anglers in small boats. Local John Davis and his mate Chris landed a nice 80kg Black on Thursday on live slimy Mackeral. I am told that the fish are surfacing and taking baits within 3 metres of the boat. The bottom bouncers on the reefs have had the best results up north.

Beach: Several locals have told me that the gutters along Tuncurry Beach are fishing well. Tailor have started to come in good numbers over the last 7 days on most beaches whilst the bream have also been amongst them. Mulloway numbers off the breakwalls has been poor while a few have been caught again along Tuncurry Beach. Whiting and dart are still to be found on most beaches.
