Report 13/9/18

Some good news coming in as the temperatures start to rise and more anglers are hitting our beaches and headlands.

On the beaches the whiting and bream are becoming a bit more active and a few nice dinners are being picked up from palm beach and Narrabeen on the run in tide using some light gear and fresh and frozen beach worms.

In the evening there is some good size tailor and salmon along with the usual number of stingrays and small bronze and dusky whaler sharks with Dee why being one of the spots worth a fish.

From the headlands and our rock platforms there are some reports of schools of kingfish mixing in among the salmon and tailor.

Although a lot of anglers are targeting the salmon and tailor with a range of metals and stick baits there are a lot of reports of these pelagics taking live baits and anything that is on offer.

Drummer and luderick are still in good numbers along with silver tervally with curl curl being one of the better spots when the conditions are good.
Inside the harbour the salmon have pushed themselves up around the opera house and under the bridge while they gorge on the vast amount of baitfish that is available.

Some anglers have reported that while flicking metals around they have picked up salmon and as the line has gone slack with the fish getting off suddenly the rod has loaded up again and to their surprise kingfish up to seventy-five have been taken.

While fishing around the schools always be aware that the kingfish will be following the schools looking for an easy meal so sometimes it is a god idea to troll a deep diving lure or a live bait around the edges of the schools.

For the anglers that have been fishing long reef out wide some quality snapper are on the take using the usual method of setting down a good berley trail and floating unweighted baits in the current. Or drifting with soft plastics along the bottom.

Kingfish are still on the move around the outer reefs and using jigs and live baits should get a result or two.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
