The past week has been pretty ordinary weather with not to many fisho's getting out. It does sound like Bermegui is the place to be at the moment though with good numbers being taken off there. With so many marlin around this season it's good to see a lot of new comers to the sport getting their first one.

The Shoalhaven River has been a bit of a funny one this time round with mixed reports. Some anglers are doing really well on both flatty's and bream whilst others are struggling to lose a bait. Danny the punt driver has sent me a couple of pics and showed me a couple more of some odd species passing through the canal over the past couple of weeks. The pic below is of Mosses Perch which is usually caught in more tropical waters. Im guessing it has travelled the E.A.C. with all the warm water coming down and decided to opt out off our coast.

Up river the bass have still been firing from the waters around the top of Longreach right up to Gradys with good numbers of larger fish in the 38-45cm class still taking surface lures such as the ever faithful Tiemco Softshell Cicada and the Jackal Micro Pompadore which is groing in popularity and fast becoming one of those must have lures you see in every bass fisho's box.

Broughten Creek had a good flush out with all the rain from last week so around the mouth of there would be a good spot to try for both jew and big flattiy's. There should have been some prawns move out of there to with the rain so there could also be some big bream along the rock walls waiting for an easy feed.

In St Georges Basin there are a few stories starting to roll in again of those mega tailor which inhabit the place. Smashing through bait schools, bitting fish in half as they are reeled back to the boat and consistantly bitting off rigs and lures meant for other fish. If this is happening to you why not have some fun and take advantage of the situation. Get yourself a little bit of wire to put in front of your lures or try driffting around with some whole pilly's on gang hooks. These fish are great fun and pretty good in the smoker!

In Jervis Bay there are plenty of small kings around the usual haunts for a bit of fun with the odd one pushing over the legal size of 65cm to take home for a feed. Squid are still a plenty on the southern side of the Bay around Murrays and there have been quite a few small sharks crusing the Bay as well with small Mako's seen as far in the Bay as Plantation Point off Vincentia.
