Bastion Point access has again been clogged with sand. Be cautious if using the facility as larger boats may get stuck on low tide.

The entrance is crossable but care needs to be taken as it is a fairly dangerous crossing.

Blue spot and Tiger flathead in 40ft of water off Gabo Island. Bottom bouncing with squid and pilchards or using micro jigs close to the bottom has been producing some decent fish.

Squid and morwong have been plentiful on the reefs off Gabo and Talaberga. Natural coloured squid jigs have been taking a few arrow squid and southern calamari. Prawns and pilchard fillets have been taking the morwong and some other reef fish.

Some big school sharks and gummy sharks have been about in some numbers but have been a bit patchy depending on the day. Fishing on the edges of the reefs with squid or pilchard on the bottom has been taking the best fish.

The beaches have been taking a few gummies as well. Casting fresh salmon fillets out the back of gutters has been the producer.

Salmon have been in some good numbers along all of the beaches delighting anglers with some excellent beach fishing. Spinning metal lures or soft plastics or casting small pilchards on paternoster rigs right on high tide have seen anglers getting fish to 60+cm.

The Break Wall has been holding some good trevally with fish to 50cm being taken (if they can be stopped). Fishing soft plastics like Gulp Pumpkin Seed grubs and Squidgy 80mm Wasabi Wrigglers has been taking plenty of fish.

The main channel has some nice tailor and the odd salmon on the incoming tide. Casting small stick baits to boiling fish or trolling small diving lures has been taking most of the fish.

Some good luderick are in Harrison's Channel and have been taking fresh bass yabbies very well.

Some good schools of black and yellowfin bream and flathead are held up in about 3-4m of water off Goodwin Sands. Sounding up schools of fish before fishing Small soft plastics of vibes has been taking a few fish. Although the fish at times have been very shut down and showing very little interest of lures.

Prawns and fresh bass yabbies have been taking a lot of fish at Goodwin Sands when lures haven't been working.

Allen's Head, Marshmeed, Fair Haven, Double Creek, Gravelly Point, Dead Finish and Palmers Bank have all taken some good fish on soft plastics and diving minnows. Zman 2.5 inch Grubz in Motor Oil, Pumpkin Seed and Bloodworm, Squidgy Wrigglers in Wasabi and Bloodworm and O.S.P Dunks and Daiwa Spikes have all been taking fish.

A few perch have been up in the mud up past Gypsy Point. Soft plastic prawn and critter imitation lures have all taken fish.
