Big Blow Curtails Offshore Angling.

Before the big blow Game fishing anglers reported good schools of Albacore well offshore with fish up to 25kg. Calmer conditions are now allowing anglers to venture back out and we await their reports.

Snapper and Morwong remain about in large schools off White Rock, Long Point, Haycock and Horseshoe Reefs. Strong warm currents from the north mean anchoring and heavy sinkers are the norm. Flathead are becoming more prolific with catches reported all along the coast from the Horsehoe Reef area to north of Tathra. Both Salmon and Tailor respond to Halco flashers off the rocks. Beach Salmon have come back on the bite after the blow favouring the white water. Best areas North Tura and Main Beach. Salmon are also reporting from the lower reaches of the Pambula River.

Local oyster farmers report that Bream have left Merimbula Lake during the westerly blow which appears to have forced cooler water into the deeper parts of the lake. This is a great time to fish Main Beach and the nearby headlands for Bream. We anticipate the lake waters will gradually warm from now on through Spring bringing estuary fish back onto the bite. Warmer waters can be found on the run-in near the estuaries entrances. This is a good time to fish for Trevally and Bream over the shallows as well as some great Dusky Flathead. Nippers without a sinker or soft plastics will get results.
