Offshore pretty quiet this week. A few flathead being taken drifting along the 40ft line over at Gabo on pilchard and squid.
The gummy and school sharks have been consistent with some nice fish being taken fishing the edge of the reefs as by catch whilst targeting flatties.

A couple of big seven gilled sharks have also been taken during the week but information had been kept quiet about the location and details.

Break wall producing a few drummer and trevally. Peeled prawns have been the best bait. Some large unstoppable fish have also been hooked and lost.

Beaches still harbouring some nice schools of salmon if persistent. Plenty of smaller fish on the metal lures and bigger fish falling to whole pilchards fished towards the back of the gutters.

Captain Stevens Point and the Main wharf have been producing some big luderick up to 1.3kg. The fish haven’t been very consistent but there are usually a few pinned on the incoming tide.

Coul’s Inlet has still been producing bream but has defiantly slowed down during the week. Whole fresh prawns the best bait.
Fisheries Jetty producing a few tailor on weightless blue bait and metal lures. Fishing right on dusk has been the best time.
Plenty of big tailor have been taken out in the lake during the past week with fish over 60cm being taken. Trolling diving lures and metals along steep drop offs has been the best method. Goodwin Sands, Marshmeed and Palmers Bank taking the biggest fish.
Flathead have fired right up this week with a few warmer days. Rolling hardbodies and soft plastics in 1-3ft of water has been a good way to get some nice flatties up to 60cm.

The bream are still slowly making their way up onto all of the flats in the lake. Rolling longer profile lures over the flats when strong winds are stirring up the water has seen some nice fish taken.

Edges and rock walls producing some nice bream on soft plastics. Minnow and grub style plastics taking the majority of fish.
Palmers Bank taking some good bream and flathead. Rolling soft plastics out the back of the bank has been the best method.
Some quality estuary perch have been holding deep out off Gypsy Point. Soft plastics taking the fish.
