Estuary: We have had a week of two very distinct weather patterns, the start of the week was absolutely beautiful. The still, sunny warm days that dominated the start of the week have now been replaced by yet another low pressure system. Windy, cold, wet and miserable!!! The fishing has slowed a little over the last week in the estuary. The big bronze Luderick have become very patchy, one day bag limits will be reached and then the next there will only be one or two caught. Bream fishing has continued to be good, not great numbers of fish but some really good size amongst them. Local lure maker Voorbs was lucky enough to get out early in the week and picked up some great Bream and Flathead using a combination of the RV Lures “Rack’em’up” and Z-man grubs in the 2.5” size.

Rock: The local stones continue to produce great catches of Tailor and Bream. There are reports of good schools of big Kingfish coming from the rocks down south, the fish are a bit finicky but for those that put in the effort they should come to the party. The most recent weather event and the associated swell will make for some great Drummer fishing for those keen to brave the elements. Remember to stay safe and be sensible. Always fish with a mate and think about investing in an automatic inflatable PFD. It could definitely save your life!

Offshore: The Snapper fishing continues to be fairly good. The big fish that were around last month seem to have disappeared and have been replaced by small fish up to 3kg which makes for a great box of table fish.

Well our fingers are crossed that this weather eases over the next 24hrs, while the sea may remain unfishable, the estuary and rocks should fire after the rain. Have a safe, happy, fun filled weekend.

Happy Fishing!
