With summer behind us, cooler nights and less light throughout the day, the fishing has been nothing short of great.

The beaches have been fishing well, still producing plenty of whiting of average to good size with the odd good sized dart mixed in. Middle of the day lined up with a high tide seems to be producing the best results. There has been nice numbers of taylor and salmon on the beach as well, both around the 60cm mark. As the sun falls and the darkness hits, the salmon and taylor disappear with decent amounts of dusky whalers moving in for an easy feed.

There have been good amounts of mulloways being caught off the beaches if you can persist through the dusky whalers. As the water gets cooler we will start to see more mulloway being caught. The Stones have been fishing well with some good kingfish being taken early in the morning with live baits and quickly worked sub-floating baits. Taylor and salmon are being caught off the Stones using small meaties from 10-75gramms. There has been a few winter fish mixed in with nice trevally up to 50cm and small Samson around 40-60cm. Also, nice sized silver bream, rock blackfish and snapper. A healthy/constant burley trail with unwaited baits such as squid, prawns, pilchids drifting in the wash has had the best results.

A few good sized southern calamari have been floating around the backend of the harbour reaches, with nice amounts of bream, whiting, small mulloways and good sized flathead. The bream and whiting have been taking small baits with light weights. Prawns and worms have been working best. The small mulloway and flathead have been taking live baits and slow falling soft plastics on the out going tide. Callamari are being caught throughout middle harbour with medium to large squid jig working best. There has been the odd school of bonito working through the harbour with schools of taylor and salmon not far behind along with small bronze whalers.

The fads are still producing small dollies with the odd large one. A few small black and striped marlin being caught on the troll with some good sized yellow fin tuna around the 40-70kg mark, being targeted as we move into the cooler months.
