Report 12/1/18

With this being the first fishing report of the new year things are looking very good for anyone looking to catch themselves some of the great sports fish that are available at the moment form our inshore and offshore reefs.

Small black marlin have being caught and tagged while trolling small skirts and for some anglers down rigging live slimey mackeral around the fads is producing some excellent catches of our prized mahi mahi.

There has also been a report from one of our snapper fishos that a small black was hooked up on light gear intended for snapper and it was not beyond the limits of some of our smaller boats and with this in mind trolling with some lures from outside the heads to your destination could pay dividends as the water temperature is right for these amazing little sportfish.

North head and blue fish point are still producing a lot of small and large kings for the land based anglers setting out live baits under balloons and floats in the very early morning and with all of the bonito tailor and salmon around there is always a chance of a feed while casting small and large metals and stick baits.

Inside the harbour over the last few weeks squid have been a bit of a problem for those looking for quality live baits but that seems to be on the mend as some fishos using small 1.8 to 2.5 jigs are reporting good catches in and around the spit bridge.

Long reef at the moment is full of baitfish and all manner of small pickers feeding on anything that is available and if you can get some baits past them the kingfish and the snapper are eager and willing to attack strip baits and live baits.

With lots of small kings around it is always good to have a spare rod with either a metal or plastic handy as these fish will always compete for food and after a hook up there is always fish following the one that is on the line.

On the beaches some good numbers of whiting are showing up for anyone that is prepared to get up early before daylight and fish the incoming tide.
There have been a few reports of some very large fish having been lost as some of our anglers target the elusive mulloway in the late evenings. Hopefully this will increase as we move through summer.
