Report 3/8/18

With better sea conditions this week there has been a lot more anglers able to get out wide and fish the twelve-mile reef and browns mountain.

Browns is still fishing well for some good quality gemfish and with a mako shark fishing competition this weekend there should be a lot more reports of what is happening out in the deep as there will be a lot of berley put into the water to draw in these awesome predators.

There have been a few catches of yellow fin tuna further south and up north but not in any quantity and very few directly of Sydney.

The twelve-mile reef is still drawing a crowd of boats looking to get into the feeding frenzy of kingfish while it lasts.

Live baits and metal jigs are still working well and getting results.

Closer to shore some of our inshore reefs are holding some good snapper and a lot of pan sized ones with long reef being the pick at the moment.

Fishing inside the harbour has not changed much over the last week the dominant catches would be squid luderick and drummer and for those casting small metals it would be salmon.

At this time last year there was a big influx of hairtail moved into the harbour and dominated the fishing taking any baits that were put in front of them and for some anglers this became an obsession.

Beach fishing is still not great as we have crystal clear water and the fish seem to be staying out in the deeper water making it very hard to pick up a feed.

Hopefully as we make our way through this month things should change for the better.

For some anglers a change of fishing style is working for them as they hunt for some estuary perch that seem to have got a bit more active and are willing to take a range of small bibbed lures and soft and hard vibes fished on a very light spin outfit around Narrabeen lagoon and queenscliff and with this style of fishing there is always the opportunity to pick up some nice bream or a good flathead.

On our rock ledges there is still blackfish, drummer and trevally still on offer while fishing with cabbage and weed.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
