Report 16/2/18

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Feb 16, 2018 11:55 am

A great time to go fishing as reports of all manner of species are being taken from our land based anglers and our boat anglers .
Starting from the land, Narrabeen Beach has some good quality whiting on offer with fish up around the 40cm mark for those anglers using light outfits and fresh or frozen beach worms and later on the evening the dusky and bronze whalers are out hunting in packs feeding on the schools of bait fish that is available at the moment.

North Curl Curl headland has seen a lot of excitement with schools of king fish on patrol as well as lots of bonito.
While the kingfish have been taking rigged garfish the bonnies seem to favour the small metal lures skimmed through the water at high speed.

Around Clontarf Reserve and up until the Spit Bridge there have been some good reports of salmon and tailor taking metals and for the fly fishers small epoxy minnows seem to be working very well.

North Harbour Reserve has large schools of chopper tailor feeding on small fry making it very hard for anybody trying to get a feed of flathead as they will take anything that is on offer.

Long Reef is holding large schools of baitfish and in turn the kingfish are getting very picky in their selection of baits so a good effort is required to bag a fish or two.

When they are feeding in this manner you need to use and try all options from trolling lures to feeding them small baits. What works one day is no guarantee that it will work the next.

Offshore fishing reports are getting better each day as the temperature stays around the 23 degree mark and above.

Black, blue and striped marlin have been taken along with some excellent mahi mahi off the fads further out and around the shelf. There are good king fish at the peak and twelve mile if you can get past the leather jackets that are on the prowl.
Some reports came in earlier in the week of small jelly beans (yellowfin tuna) making an appearance in and around the Browns Mountain area.

As long as the currents and water stay in good condition we should see a lot of activity for our boat anglers fishing inshore reefs or trolling out around the shelf for a few months yet.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
