Not too much offshore action this week with fairly large seas stopping most rec fishers from heading out. Those who did managed to get onto the large blue-spot flathead in 30m off Gabo island.

Some good drummer have been taken along with some good sized trevally and snook at Bastion Point on Zman Grubz and Gulp Pumpkin Seed Grubs.
Inside the new harbour there have been some medium sized yakkas and mullet around for those chasing some quality live baits. These fish have been showing up at dusk and hanging around the jetty lights at night.

The surf has also been fairly patchy with only a few anglers attempting to brave the large swell. The large schools of big salmon have been providing plenty of fun though with some great fish landed by both bait and lure fishers. The incoming tide has been best when the salmon are able to get into the shallower gutters to get to schools of mullet and whitebait.

Inside the lake there have been some reports of sand and king george whiting being taken just inside the entrance. The fish have been taking bass yabbies and pipis fished right on the bottom.

The main channel has been holding some great tailor, some of which going over 50cm. These fish have been smashing Squidgy Flick baits fished in mid water.
Some good sized trevally have also been hanging around Tee Tree Point on the incoming tide. Gulp Turtle Back Worms in Camo and Pumpkin seed and Squidgy Pro Worms have been racking up good numbers of fish.

Out in the lake there have been some good bream behind Goodwin Sands in about 12ft of water. These fish have been loving Zman 2.5inch Grubz and squidgy 100mm Wasabi Wrigglers. The bream have also been up in the second narrows near Cape Horn and have been taking both metal blades and baits very well.
The flatties inside the lake have defiantly slowed with only a few being taken mainly as bycatch up at Palmers Bank on both baits and soft plastics.
A few anglers have also been getting onto some big perch up the river past Gypsy Point. These fish have been taking most soft plastics in the 80-100mm bracket.
