Estuary: A pretty good week in the Lake System with a few anglers getting good catches of Garfish down at the Step and along behind Tonys Island. Light gear, float, small long shank hook and some bread is the gear required to catch these tasty table fish. A packet of Arrowroot Biscuits crumbled up as burley helps as well – you can eat the burley yourself as well!! Flathead are still in good numbers with the flats along the back of Tern Island firing well this week along with the entrance to the Wallamba River at the Cut. Fish in and around the 50cm mark are common with the odd larger fish also being landed. Bream are taking small hard body lures such as the Eccooda Cranks and are being caught amongst the racks. Tuncurry breakwall is fishing well for those that like to chase a Mulloway with a few schoolies caught last Sunday late afternoon. Commercial fishos report that Blue Swimmers and Muddies are still around in both the lake and up the rivers in good numbers.

Rock: Fairly quite this week with not many reports coming in. A few Spearos had a swim on Monday afternoon and reported that a few good size Tailor are there for taking along with plenty of smaller ‘just legal’ bream.

Offshore: Good feedback from last weekend for those that headed out to the FAD. Plenty of Dolphinfish taking live bait along with a slow trolled lure. Large Stickbait lures like the Rover 280 thrown in towards the FAD is also working well for the bigger fish. Up north in areas like Snapper Rock and further have had plenty of Snapper on the reef sizing from small plate size to large fish hitting the scales at 7kg. Dennis Ralston fished north last weekend and landed a 12kg Spanish Mackeral amongst other assorted reef fish. Trag are plentiful at night up and down the coast. Flathead are on the gravel although I am told that most fish are only just 40cm. Slimy Macks are in good schools for those that want to grab some live bait on the way out.

Beach: A few Tailor are around with locals either spinning or bait fishing for them and getting results on both. Some nice Whiting are tucked up in the corner at Elizabeth Beach. Shovelnose Sharks are everywhere as are a few smaller Bronze Whalers being caught at night.
