Report 2/9/16

Offshore hasn't been hot this week. A few decent gummy sharks sitting on the reef drop offs straight out off Talaberga. Fresh fish fillets producing the fish.
The break wall and surrounding rock ledges have had some good fishing for drummer, silver trevally and bream. Berleying up with crushed mussels and fishing peeled prawns in the trail producing good numbers of fish.

For anglers keen for a challenge try fishing 80-100mm soft plastic lures around the front of the break wall or foamy washes surrounding with bream gear for the trevally and drummer.

The surf gutters have been full of salmon if you time the tide and day right. The fish have been favouring an overcast day with a strong incoming tide. Both baits and lures have been producing fish but they aren't fussy at the moment.

A few gummy sharks and school sharks are being taken off the beaches too, mostly on dusk. The fish have been falling to salmon strips or pieces of eel.

The Main Wharf is still holding some crazy amounts of sizable luderick on the incoming tide. Green and brown weed fished under pencil floats have been taking the majority of bigger fish.

Coul's Inlet still holding plenty of table sized black and yellowfin bream. Fishing lightly weighted baits off one of many jetties has been a good way to pick up cruising fish.

Some good sized tailor have been taken trolling metal lures along various drop offs around the lake. Hotspots include the front of Goodwin Sands and Tee Tree Point.
Flathead starting to appear in some decent numbers. The fish have been sitting in the shallows sunning themselves as the water is still a bit cold. Casting skinnier profiled shallow diving hard bodies has been a good way to target the fish. Some surprisingly large fish have been taken even in water as shallow as 50cm.

Harrison's Channel holding some nice yellowfin bream on the incoming tide. Fresh bass yabbies or hard bodied lures have been taking the fish.

Goodwin Sands, Bakers Bite and Fair Haven producing some good schools of black bream. Fishing vibes like Eco Gear VX 35s, Strike Pro Cyber Vibes and other smaller vibes have been taking good numbers.

The bottom lake flats are just starting to hold a few bream. Most have been sitting on the edges. Rolling hard bodied lures like Jackal Minnows have been taking a few.

The top lake flats holding some good numbers of bream, flathead and whiting. A few fish have been falling victim to bent minnows and Bass Day Sugar Pens but the majority have been taken fishing sub surface stick baits and hard bodies. Zman grubZ also taking a fair percentage of fish.

Some cracking bream have been haunting the rock and snag lined edges in the top lake right up to Cape Horn. Sight casting these brutes whilst they are feeding "mudding" or cruising has produced a few awesome sessions. Weightless Squidgy Flick Baits, Zman grubZ rigged on 1/40th jig heads and most floating shallow diving hard bodies have been taking fish.
