Report 13/4/18

With the weather looking good for the weekend and the school holidays starting there can be no better time for to get outdoors with the kids and enjoy a spot of fishing.

Finding activities for the kids during the holidays can cause a lot of stress for parents and cost a lot of money.

With a simple rod and reel or handline hours can be spent around some of our inland lagoons like Narrabeen where it is very safe for the family to spent a few ours with the kids and maybe even catch something for the table.

Narrabeen lagoon is one of the jewels of the north shore with all sorts of activities available for young and old and is a perfect nursery for young fish to develop and grow.

Fishing on our rock ledges at the moment when the seas allow can be very rewarding at the moment as can be seen from our cover picture of Julius David holding a nice Sydney kingfish weighing in at around 16kg.

A lot of time and effort needs to be put in to pick up a fish of this quality from the rocks and sometimes a good bit of luck.
Sydney harbour seems to have slowed down a little but there is still a lot of fish from bonito to kingfish to be taken for those that put the effort in to locate the schools.

Beach fishing changes day by day with reports of some beaches producing quality whiting and flathead while others are dominant with tailor and salmon.

Most of the better fishing seems to be from curl curl and Deewhy in the afternoons and further up our coast as the sun sets.
Offshore fishing is still producing quality kingfish around the twelve mile reef and from the fads the reports are that the mahi mahi are still in full swing.

Browns mountain a favourite spot for those using the deep drop method are having a lot of luck with some of our deep water species like Gemfish while others are concentrating on some of the larger game fish like marlin and yellowfin that have been holding in the area over the last number of weeks. The colder current is slowly pushing its way up from the south and hopefully with it we will see an increase in the number of yellowfin.
