Snapper are back on the bite at Long Point and Hunter Reef with ocean temperatures now at 16 – 17 degrees. Morwong remain a great standby. The twin paternoster rig with pilchard bait brings good results particularly when anchored and using a burley bomb. Ocean Flathead are back on the bite north of Tathra near the pinnacle off Cowdroy Beach at 18-20 fathoms. Try also Bournda, Tura headland and Haycock at 25 fathoms.

Kingfish are reported from Mowarry, you just have to be there at the right time. Salmon and Tailor remain at Tura, Main, Haycock and Aslings Beach near Eden, best time just after dark. Ideal bait is a full size pilchard on gang hooks. Often the larger Salmon take a popper mounted above the bait.

With so little rain over winter the Bega River entrance at Mogareeka has closed.
Dusky Flathead are expected to congregate at Mogareeka near the bridge and towards the ocean seeking salty water. This really is the time to practice catch and release so stocks are not depleted. In Merimbula and Pambula Lakes Bream and Trevally together with Dusky Flathead are available, fish the edges of oyster leases or channels. Soft plastics like the red worm and live nippers bring good results.

Happy Fishing!
