Estuary: The estuary fishing is absolutely awesome at the moment! All of our favourite warm water species are well and truly awake now and on the bite. Sand Whiting are in abundance up over most sand flats and they are in great condition. They are eagerly chasing and whacking surface lures which in my opinion is the most fun you can have on light gear! In between the Whiting you can also expect to come across huge numbers of Bream and more than a few surface belting Flathead. Flathead are about in huge numbers and range in size from pesky little males through to metre plus females, it really is a lottery as to what size fish you might pull up next cast. Soft Vibes and Soft plastics continue to out fish and bait, our biggest seller lately has been the new Gulp Mantis Shrimp. Bream have spread out into the lower end of the lake now and there have been some really nice fish coming from the weed beds down around Coomba Park and Green Point.

Beaches: The water along our coastline has decreased in clarity significantly over the past few days. This, along with a bit of red weed floating about has made for a fairly quiet week. The northern ends of most beaches seem to be the cleanest areas and fishing these areas you should run into some nice Bream, Whiting and maybe even the odd Mulloway. Water quality and temperature seemed to be a little better today so fingers crossed for a bit of an improvement over the next couple of days.

Rocks: The local rock ledges have been fairly productive over the past week, even with the average water quality. Bream, Luderick, Drummer and even some nice Tailor. There have been a few sneaky reports of some nice sized Tailor this week, all from the rocks to the south. This dirty water will further delay any hopes that we had of an early game season, however there is still plenty of bait sitting out a bit wider so anything could happen if the water quality sorts itself out!

Offshore: There have been a lot of boats heading out to fish the reefs and most have found some nice fish. While there haven’t been any huge fish caught, most bags have consisted of nice Snapper, Teraglin, Pearl Perch and, of course, the ever reliable Flathead! Those reefs a little wider seem to be producing more fish at the moment so if you have any marks for reefs in 55-65m I would be having a good look around them first.
