Fishing around Sydney harbour at the minute can’t get much better with schools of pelagic species chasing baitfish from the heads to North Harbour and up and through the Harbour Bridge.

There has been a lot of good sized kingfish up and beyond the meter mark taken by some anglers around the marker buoys and just inside the heads using live baits and when the fish are on the surface, throwing stick baits and poppers are working very well.

North Harbour is still fishing well from the land or in a boat around the moorings with flathead bream and kings being dominant and fishing worms and plastics in the shallows could bag a feed of whiting.

With the tailor, bonito and salmon around the heads in large numbers the opportunity of having a good day out throwing small metal lures on a light spin outfit can be very rewarding as these fish will always give a good account of themselves.

For those anglers that fish our rock ledges from North Head up to Palm Beach, there are a lot of good quality fish being taken on the surface using poppers ,stick baits and large metals when the sea and conditions allow.

There have been many reports of very large kingfish being taken and with most anglers targeting these fish with heavy duty rods, reels and lines but there have been a lot of good fish lost by some of our anglers using light spin outfits casting metals for some of the smaller pelagics.

Long Reef as usual is in full swing with yellowtail schooling around in big numbers and attracting very large schools of predators that are taking all manner of lures whether they are trolled or cast and with fishing a range of small jigs and plastics closer to the bottom a feed of good table fish is never far away.

Offshore fishing at the moment has kings on offer for those fishing the twelve mile reef using a series of heavy metal jigs and as always the leather jackets are taking their fair share of them.

Out and around the shelf where the water is a bit warmer there are some mahi mahi on offer and the chance to pick up a marlin or two on the troll.
Hopefully in the coming weeks as we lead into the holidays we can get a run of warmer weather drawing the mahi mahi closer to shore and maybe see some small black marlin being taken.
