Kingfish salmon and bonito seem to be the dominant species that are available at the moment from our rock ledges and headlands.

Armed with a medium rod and reel outfit and a range of small metal lures, you could have some excellent results with the abundance of salmon and bonnies that are eager to pick up anything that is on offer.

Casting some larger metals and stick baits will give you a chance of picking up some of the larger kingfish that are in the mix.

Recently there have been a few of our anglers reporting that while fishing they have hooked up to some very large fish and after a short time without much pressure on the rod, the line has failed them.

While checking some of the equipment they use it does not take long to find the answer.

Cracked or broken guides will allow you to cast without much of a problem but when the pressure comes on this is what will break your line very quickly.

Fishing on the rocks can be very hard on your tackle so do not forget to check your equipment before setting of for a session as the fish of a life time can be lost very easily through lack of maintenance.

Recently the weather conditions have been very unsettled and for anyone managing to find a quiet spot out of the wind inside the Harbour, they have had some very good results with small mulloway and king fish taking live baits and soft vibes from the Spit Bridge up to the Roseville boat ramp.

With schools of bait all around our shores, fishing at Long Reef would have to be one of the most popular spots to pick up a feed at the moment. There is a vast variety of species on offer and with all methods working from trolled diving lures to casting metals and plastics, it should not be long before a fish of some description will be on the line.

We are still hearing some reports of marlin on the move out wide but they seem to be very particular as to what they will take so a lot of lure changing is going on trying to find the right recipe.

There are reports of small mahi mahi last week on some of the wave buoys. The deployment of the fisheries fads this week should maybe see some fish in a bit closer to shore and with a favourable current some of the larger fish moving in.
