Report 9/4/19

Welcome to this week’s report. Before we get started I want to say congrats to my boss (Gav) and his crew for taking out a prize in last weekend’s Kiama blowhole Bluewater classic. Some amazing fish were captured over the weekend including Nathan Wilsons yellowfin tuna, epic stuff from the boys on Chasn’ Tail. We love seeing our customers with cracking fish.

With the current turning and heading back up hill we’ve had some amazing fishing wide of JB stripes, blacks, blues and yellowfin tuna all went over the scale’s in the Blowhole Classic. With that current heading back up generally places like the banks become on the quieter side. For those keen for a feed of bonnies or smaller kings (legal size) we’ve saw a few pro boats polling the bonnies in. Snapper have been a real stand out in the last two weeks with some good weight and numbers of them throw in a few squid and we have a south coast seafood basket. The Berkley Squid Vicious Gulp has been a real stand out on the reds, with the Yamashita Live 3.5 IN R08 colour proving to irresistible to the squid.

This last week has saw a real mixed bite in the river with some cracking jew been caught and by numerous anglers on artificial baits. A go to bait for me when targeting a Shoaly jew is the Squidgie Paddletail 110mm in cracked pepper. While on the bream side of things it’s been a little on the quiet side maybe coincidence with the amount of jew in the system at the moment? For those looking to dangle a bait the usual haunts out the front of Broughton Creek and the canals is a good option.

Is still fishing quiet well with the upcoming holidays may see it slow a touch but only time will tell. The usual big flathead, jew, snapper and bream are still taking a well presented bait or soft plastic. Ian Roth has been having a dream run of trophy fish lately casting his ever faithful Samaki Vibelicious. Check out his pic below of the crocodile looking flathead he tagged and released.
