On the first day of summer the temps soared into the high 30’s throughout our region making for some pretty uncomfortable conditions. On or near the coast would have been the place to be, throwing a line in, having a surf or dive or just pottering around the beach or rocks. On the beaches there are whiting, bream and salmon on offer with a fresh or live beach worm making it pretty hard for a hungry fish to resist, there have also been a couple of small Jew on the beaches both north and south of the crokhaven river entrance. Whilst on the rocks there have been plenty of good drummer and some nice tailor.

The prawning season has well and truly kicked off, the south eastern shores of the Basin are producing some nice size prawns with enough numbers to keep you interested but the big news on the prawning is lake wollumbulla out at Culburra, the lake opened earlier this year allowing the prawn spawn to enter and get trapped in there when the lake reclosed, the prawns have reached a reasonable size now and there are plenty on offer, so grab the kids and head out there for a bit of fun and to catch a feed. Remember if you are over 18 you will need a recreational fishing license to go prawning unless of course you have a pension or veteran’s affairs card then your sweet.

In Jervis bay apart from there being a flotilla of impressive navy ships and subs there are still squid on offer around Murray’s break wall, plantation point and on the north side of the bay at long beach. Unfortunately for me the ships were the highlight of my attempted squidding trip last Sunday as I could only manage the one, mainly due to that strong nor-easter that blew right through until dark making it impossible to stay in contact with the jig and work it properly.

The bass comp we ran over the season of spring has officially finished. Eugene Eyck took out the comp with an impressive and much discussed fish of 48.5cm caught fairly early in the comp during a trip down the river from the Tallowa Dam wall. Well done to Eugene winning himself about $350 worth of Bass lures courtesy of McCallums Tackle World Nowra.

Touching on the bass fishing the two dams out of Nowra, Flat rock and Danjera, are both producing some fair fish on their day. Flat rock around dark and 1 hr into the night has been best and Danjera the opposite with the early mornings the go out there.
