Solid numbers of gummy sharks have been holding out over the 50m mark over the last week. Dropping heavy paternoster rigs to the bottom baited with tailor, trevally or salmon strips has been the best way to get the fish.

Some numbers of tiger flathead out deep too. Fishing pilchard of other fish bait on the bottom has been the way to go.

In closer (20-40m) the sand flathead have also been biting. They haven't been red hot and the size hasn't been huge but plenty of 30-35cm fish have been there and a good feed can be put together after a few drifts. Micro jigs have been the best method.

A few salmon and tailor schools have been passing through at the break wall. Spinning metal lures off the end of the wall on the start of the incoming or outgoing tide has been when the fish are there.

Entrance has been firing with big salmon at times. They have been varying from day to day though. An incoming tide has been the go to with these fish. Metal lures and soft plastics the best lures.

Main wharf producing luderick on green weed and bream on prawns. The incoming tide has been best but a few fish still about on the outgoing.
Coul's Inlet has still been a good spot for bream. Prawns or soft plastics have been the two best things to use. A few flathead also starting to come on the bite in Coul's and have usually been picked up as by catch whilst bream fishing.

Main channel has been good for tailor and salmon. Trolling metal lures or Tassie Devils the best way to catch these fish.

Tailor in Bakers Bight and out the front of Goodwin Sands. Again trolling metal lures is the best method for the fish.

Bream and a few flathead holding in 10ft of water off Goodwin Sands. Fish have been a bit picky but small vibes rigged with stinger hooks have been taking a few fish.

Marshmeed has been producing plenty of bream and flathead. Rolling hard bodied minnows the way to go in the shallower water.

Allen's Head producing flathead. Fishing fish style soft plastics in various depths has been the way to find the fish.

The narrows producing a few flathead. Vibes and blue bait the best things to use.

Double Creek holding some good bream. The bite has been vary finicky but soft plastic grubs and minnows have been producing a few.

Dead Finish has been producing some good bream and flathead right in close to the shore. Surface lures and hardbodies taking the fish.

Palmers Bank also still holding fish. Soft plastics and hard bodied chubby lures taking the fish.

Estuary perch biting from Cape Horn upwards. Sounding up schools of fish along the steep drop offs has been a good way to get onto these guys. Soft plastics the best lure to use.
