Report 21/2/19

There were a lot of boats last weekend took the opportunity while the weather was favourable to go out wideband hunt for some mahi mahi and marlin and for some anglers the trip was worth it with legal sized mahi mahi swordfish and yellowfin tuna although there were not many fish things are looking good for the weeks to come.

For those anglers using electric reels dropping baits into the depths the rewards at the moment are very good with bags of gemfish and some good snapper being taken.

In closer the twelve mile reefs still producing kings using metal jigs and live baits but be prepared to lose a bit of gear as the leather jackets are taking their share.

Fishing around the long reef area there are still good numbers of table fish available from kings to snapper while using metal jigs and live baits.

There have been a few good reports this week coming from the beaches with plenty of whiting being taken with worms in the gutters along with some bream and tarwhine and curl curl seems to be fishing better than some of the other beaches.

Along the headlands and rock platforms casting metals and stick baits working well for bonito and small kings and for those anglers carrying in live baits there are some good sized kingfish eager to get into a fight.

There have been numerous reports from anglers over the past week that while gathering bait at the artificial reef they have encountered a very large tiger shark patrolling the area and inside the harbour there are a lot of anglers marking large bull sharks on their sounders.

The bonito and kingfish are still in big numbers all through the harbour and some days they are taking surface lures while other days they will only take live bait.

As their diet changes from day to day be prepared to switch methods with different sizes of artificial lures and baits.

Fishing some of the sandy areas and around the boat moorings there are some good flathead taken while using small hard bodied lures and soft plastics just before the sun comes up.
