Estuary: Blackfish are back in great numbers and for those guys that chase them are getting bag limits most days. If you can get it, good quality green cabbage has been the best bait. As always get out there early in the morning for the best fishing time. Nice bream are also up amongst the racks and if fished in a little bit of breeze to ripple the surface try your luck on a surface lure. Lure like the Ecooda Snoop Dog are working well. Hawkesbury Prawns always are a gun bait for the bream and if rigged on a very light weight with a light drag you should get a good feed.

Wallis Lake is still producing nice Flathead on the run out tide. Most fish are all around the mid 40cm mark and will take lures or baits.
During the week a couple of visitors headed down to the end of Point Road in Tuncurry each afternoon and fished for Flathead. Great catches each day on the run out all caught on Mullet Strip Baits. A couple of monster Bream were also caught as a by catch.

Rock: Plenty of Tailor are hanging around the rocks with Dave Thompson from Tuncurry PO getting amongst a few fish last Sunday morning. Pilchards are the pick of the baits although a metal spinner would not go astray for a flick. Bream, Blackfish and heaps of Parrot fish are invading the rocks as well.
Offshore: All sandy gravel bottoms have produced good large Flathead around the 50cm mark this week. Double hook ups are common using a paternoster style rig. Strip baits like Mullet, Bonito or Slimies will all work. Out wider at the FAD still Dolphin fish around along with good King fish in the 10kg- 14kg mark to be taken. A few locals on Thursday also landed a 15kg Wahoo on a live Slimy at the FAD. Plenty of balls of bait around in close near the Bullring with heaps of Slimy Macks. Squid are in good numbers around Bennetts Head.

Beach: Nine Mile beach at the back of the Tuncurry caravan park is fishing well. Try uour luck by fishing off the breakwall into the wash on the beach side. Plenty of Tailor along the wall to be caught using Pilchards on a gang hook rig. Bream are around in the gutters. As the full moon is around this weekend try the odd Jewfish should be around at night.

To those that are visiting over Easter we will be open every day from 8.00am till late for all your requirements and info on top spots.
