Offshore reefs producing some nice mixed bags last week. Morwong, pinkies, leatherjacket, blue throat, squid, flathead, kingfish and school sharks. The kingies have been responding to micro jigs, the squid to smaller sized squid jigs fish deep on paternoster rigs, and the rest have been taking squid, pilchard and prawn fished on the bottom.

Beaches holding some big tailor and salmon on the high tide. The trick is finding a deep gutter with loads of foam spilling into it. The fish use the foam to ambush the garfish and other bait fish living in the gutters. Small metal lures have been perfect for targeting the fish but small garfish rigged on gang hooks have also been smashing fish.

Old harbour at Bastion point producing some nice yellowfin bream and silver trevally on low tide. Prawns and pipis taking good numbers as well as a range of soft plastic lures.

Harrison’s Channel holding numbers of luderick and yellowfin bream. Bass yabbies fished on the flats have been the way to go. Crabs have been a bit of a problem but if you persist and fire the fish up, they’ll usually beat the crabs to the bait.

Fishing platforms producing trevally on blue bait. Fish have been a bit patchy but when schools move through the fishing is fast and chaotic.

John Bull has had a few tailor and salmon schooling around the marker and back edge of the flat. Trolling metal lures has been taking fish.

Goodwin Sands producing some good bream and flathead just off the edge on bass yabbies. Soft plastics and vibes also working well.

Bakers Bight along to Snapper Point holding some good bream and flathead. Vibes defiantly the stand out lure to use. Using a faster retrieve has been a good way to tempt fish.

Top lake has gone to mud after the rain. Not to be put off though as the fish have still been up here feeding hard. Most edges with a bit of structure taking plenty of bream. Sight casting not an option but rolling hard bodies out from the shore line has been a good alternative.

Palmers Bank taking bream flathead and tailor. Hopping soft plastics along the bottom taking some good fish.

Cape Horn upwards has been good for getting onto some nice schools of bream and flathead. Vibes and soft plastics fished through these schools after a bit of sounding has been the best method. The odd estuary perch has been taken too.
