A few boats getting offshore this week. Gummies slowly moving in to the closer reefs. Fish sitting in 45m+. Fresh fish fillets or salted pilchards taking the fish. Be prepared to move along the depth lines to find the congregations of fish.

Flathead have also been slowly moving in closer too. Tiger flathead are still few and far between but the sand flathead have been around. 30-40m has been where the fish are holding. Try and look for bait schools or action on the sounder before fishing salted pilchard cubes close to the action.
Salmon on the beaches are pretty quiet with only the odd lone fish turning up.

Coul’s Inlet really firing with the flathead. Plenty of fish holding around the jetty pylons and edges feeding hard on the abundance of bait fish. Smaller style lures in the 60-80mm range have been getting the best response, try leaving the lure on the bottom for a bit longer than usual too.

Mouth of Harrisons Channel has started producing whiting and trevally as they move in for summer. Fresh bass yabbies or prawn taking the best fish. Try fishing the incoming tide

Snapper Point/ mouth of the Narrows producing some great bream and trevally. Soft plastics fished along the edges out to about 3m and fresh prawn taking the fish. For the best results fish from 4pm onwards.

Goodwin Sands and Marshmeed holding some good bream in the shallows. Fish hard bodied minnows in about 1m of water whilst there is some wind pushing for the best results.

Cemetery Bight producing some nice flathead. 80-100mm soft plastics working a treat with a one hop retrieve.

The back flat at Double Creek producing the bream on surface. Bent minnows fished in 60cm of water the best way to get the fish. Try looking for boils or boofs as the fish have been eating blood worms off the surface.

Palmers bank also still producing some nice bream. Try mixing it up and fishing hollow body vibes over the shallows and edges with sort sharp hops. This is an excellent way to get the fish to smash the lure.
