Estuary: The Lake over the last week or so has fished exceptionally well with easter holiday makers getting among plenty of nice sized Bream. Most anglers reported that the Oyster racks have been the place to get results with Bream up to the average of 600-700gr mark being landed. A few local guys kayaked around the racks on Monday afternoon and picked up some nice Flatties on Ecooda Live Shrimp Lures worked along the bottom. Bait Fishos can’t go past Hawkesbury Prawns or our locally caught marinated beach worms to catch a feed. We are selling as much stock as we can get of our local marinated red worms for the bream guys, plus a few Whiting have still been hanging around the deep channel under the bridge on Tuncurry side also taking worm baits.

The Blackfish are in good numbers and are really schooling up in good numbers up among the racks. Chopper tailor will grab a metal lure along the breakwall. Today sees the first night of the dark meaning that prawns will be running. Two things you need to remember – run out tide and a cotton prawn net and you will be guaranteed of a catch of lake prawns. Blue Swimmer crabs are still around on the flats.

Rock: A few reports of some smallish but legal Kingfish still cruising around the Tanks. Any type of metal lure either spun or trolled should work. Plenty of Bream taking cunjevoi from Burgess rocks.

Offshore: Reports of Dolphinfish and kings out around the FAD. Last weekend saw plenty of Spotted and Spanish Mackeral caught everywhere from north as far as Crowdy Head down to Forster. A few locals also caught Spanish land based from Crowdy Breakwall. Snapper have been in great numbers on northern reefs with some fish tipping the scales at 6kg plus. Trag in plague numbers at dark. Two more reports this week of Wahoo caught down south close to Seal Rocks area.

Beach: Tailor are increasing in numbers on both seven and nine mile beaches. A few small Jews have been landed down off Tiona with fish in the throwback size of 50cm up to the 80cm mark. Still a few Flathead in the gutters off Seven Mile.
