The fishing over the last week has not changed much with a wide range of species on offer while fishing in the harbour or outside and along the headlands and beaches.

There have been a few very large kingfish this week with some hitting one meter thirty and a lot more just over the meter mark.

The key to picking up one of these monsters would be to start of with the best bait you can get either fresh live squid or slimey mackerel and fished below some of the massive schools of bait fish in the early morning when the king fish are most active.

There will be a lot of smaller fish that will attack your bait but when you hook one of these larger fish it will be a case of lock and load and hold on tight, as they will fight to the best of their ability to escape.

The bonito and tailor are still in good numbers around the Seaforth and spit areas and can be picked up using metals and all forms of soft plastic jerk shads and slapsticks.

Reef fishing has had another species added to the summer list with reports of a few Samson fish being taken while fishing with baits intended for snapper and kingfish in the long reef area.

Further north towards barenjoey headland there have been some very large concentrations of yellowtail and slimey mackerel which have been holding for a while and should not take long to attract some of our bigger predators and an area well worth a fish.

Beach fishing from Dee why to Narrabeen has been drawing some of our more hardened anglers chasing bronze and dusky whaler sharks that seem to be in good numbers at the moment as the sun goes down and for those that are lucky enough to get past the sharks there is always the chance of picking up a nice mulloway.

Out towards the shelf the water temperature is in our favour and usually by this time of the year we should be getting some solid reports of good sized mahi mahi along with marlin being taken on the troll and live biting around some of the fads but things seem to be a little late this year and hopefully this will kick in very soon.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
