Now is the time to get out there with all of our summer species on the bite.

For those that are able to get out to the fads and beyond to the shelf there has been some great reports this week with some boats scoring striped marlin and mahi mahi while closer in there have been numerous reports of small black marlin on the prowl.

Trolling small and medium skirted lures seem to be doing the job but do not forget to load up on some of the fresh slimeys and bonito before heading out as this can make the difference when the fish are being very specific as to what they will take.

There is plenty of bait schools out wide and the birds are working hard along with the dolphins rounding them up into bait balls.

Closer inshore the reefs are fishing very well for kingfish snapper and bonito and there have been a few anglers that have encountered cobia and hairtail.

The most successful method at the moment would be to lay down a good berley trail to attract most of these species.

Most of our headlands and rock platforms have plenty of small kingfish and bonito being taken on surface lures and metals and as usual bluefish point and north head look to be the most active at this time.

Inside the harbour there is still a lot of baitfish and these are being harassed by lots of rat kings with bonito and tailor.

ON the beaches there are plenty of worms to test the skills of those that want to have the best bait to bag themselves some nice bream and flathead.

In the evening the sting rays and sharks are on patrol but there have been a few mulloway hooked and lost with Narrabeen and Dee why being a favourite spot using live baits or large strips of squid.

Manly dam is producing some small bass while fishing surface lures in the evening as the sun goes down.

Narrabeen lake is still a good spot for those that want to chase a nice flathead on surface and diving lures and the bigger fish are being taken in the dark.
