Report 28/3/19

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Apr 05, 2019 10:09 am

Over the last week there have been an increase in the number of reports of mulloway being taken along our beaches from some small fish to fish topping the metre mark.

The most popular beaches at the moment are Narrabeen and Dee why but with these fish travelling any beach is worth a throw in the evening.
Some anglers are taking good sized tailor around curl curl and long reef while fishing with pilchards on gang hooks and as usual there have been plenty of bronze and dusky whalers patrolling looking for an easy meal.

Offshore fishing for some of our larger game fish is still very quiet with a few reports coming in from a recent competition of some blue marlin being taken out wide and mahi mahi on some of the fads but no sign of our bread and butter game fish like the striped and black marlin.

On our inshore reef over the last week there have been some good snapper taken up to six kilos for some anglers in forty to fifty meters of water on the northern side of the peninsular while using pilchards in a good berley trail.

Leather jackets seem to have invaded our waters along the coast and into the harbour although a tasty fish for the table they can be an absolute pest for those anglers fishing with jigs and lures as they will attack anything that moves in the water.

Inside the harbour this week the conditions are very dirty after the recent rains but it has not put the fish off, as they still have to get a feed from somewhere.

There are still a very large quantity of pelagics roaming around the marker buoys and among the boat moorings for those fishing with live baits and trolling or casting lures can be very successful in any other part of the harbour depending where the fish are schooling up.

With the resent rains Narrabeen lake has had the chance to flush the system and bring the fish on the bite with some nice whiting and flathead being taken on worms and artificial lures on the incoming tide.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
