Estuary: I must say it is so nice to be hearing all the positive reports coming in from those fishing our estuary. Trumpeter or Winter Whiting have thickened up and most anglers who choose to chase these tasty little guys are easily reaching their bag limits. Their bigger cousins the Sand Whiting have also begun to fire and are great fun on light gear. The humble Bream is still around in good numbers but has taken a bit of a backseat as most anglers chase the more desirable table species. Flathead are still proving to be a bit elusive for those wishing to soak a bait, throwing soft plastics or vibes about is the key and there have been plenty of quality fish taken over the last week.

Rocks and Beaches: Reports coming from the local rock ledges and beaches have been few and far between this week. One angler found a few Tailor down off Jainey’s Corner earlier in the week so it might be worth having a look over the weekend. There have been some nice Squid being taken from the rocks around Burgess Beach and the BullRing.

Offshore: Offshore fishing has been tough going this week with frustrating winds. Those that have managed to get out have experienced some great fishing. Snapper and Pearl Perch have been fishing well, and for the night owls out there, some huge Teragalin up to 7kg have been caught after dark. Mullet seems to be the bait of choice at the moment.

Fingers crossed for a bit more of these light-ish winds. Get out there and enjoy this beautiful time of the year!

Happy Fishing!
