Fishing from the heads of Sydney harbour out to the shelf and beyond there have been some great reports of marlin, mahi mahi and a new arrival of yellowfin tuna.

While the yellowfin have not been taken in big numbers they have made up for it in size and quality with fish touching on 50kgs for some anglers.
For the lucky few it has been a matter of being in the right place at the right time and for others trolling for marlin, it has been a very successful way to pick up a fin or two.

With the weather conditions predicted over the weekend, much of our offshore fishing will slow down a bit, but will hopefully pick up again as the conditions change in our favour.

Beach fishing has improved over the past week with a lot of beaches holding good quantities of salmon and tailor and with plenty of bait about there has been mulloway taken on Narrabeen, Curl Curl and Newport beaches.

While Manly beach is offering small chopper tailor and flathead further up the coast towards Palm Beach. Some fish are reported to be up around the 50cm mark.

Narrabeen lake is still fishing well with some good sized whiting been taken on worms and small surface lures and for those fishing in the evening and into the small hours of the morning the rewards have been very good with large flathead on the prowl.

For those anglers fishing inside the harbour there seems to be no end in sight of the quantity and quality of the fish that are available.

With all of the surface action that is available at the moment fishing with small metal lures and/or saltwater flies should get a feed from some of the pelagics that are on offer.

Trolling diving lures or live baits when the fish are not showing has been the best way to cover ground and find the fish.

Fishing in and around North Harbour has been very good for those anglers using soft plastics and vibes in the shallow water and around the boat moorings resulting in some good catches of flathead and bream while others have had a bit of luck using live squid and/or yellowtail and bagging some small king fish that patrol the area.

Best time to fish the area is very early in the morning before the sun comes up and things start to get busy.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
