Surface fishing really firing up this week. Loads of fish beginning to really beginning to take surface lures properly. Try using Jackson Panics or other walker style stick baits and aim your casts around shallow drop offs or holes on shallow flats or shadows under snags along the shoreline. Bream, Flathead and whiting all being taken.
Lightly weighted soft plastics cast along rock walls producing some good bream and flathead. Try using grub or prawn style lures and fish tight up against structure for the best fishing. Look for bait or fish actively feeding in the shallows.
Soft plastics and vibes fished in the deeper water up around Cape Horn producing bream and flathead. Jewfish also a possibility. Use the sounder to find deep fish holding places. Drop offs, peaks and rubble beds all worth fishing.
Top Lake a bit milky from the rain but producing bream and flathead in 6ft of water. Try rolling deep diving hardbodies down edges and drop offs into the 5-6ft mark to get the fish. Varying retrieves paying off with slower fish.
Flats producing some nice yellowfin bream when the wind is up. Slow rolling hardbodies or fishing light soft plastics across most flats in the bottom lake taking these fish. Fishing firing on warmer days.
A large mulloway was caught on a live tailor fished off one of the BBQ areas in the bottom lake on dusk. Worth a shot for people keen on camping out for these guys.
Tailor popping up around most of the lake. Hot spots have been the cardinal marker at the 8ft bank (Bakers Bight) and John Bull. A lot of smaller fish in the Narrows (perfect bait size). Trolling small metals has been the best for these guys.
Coul's Inlet Jetties providing some good bream and flathead. Hardbodies and smaller soft plastics taking the fish.
Back of the islands picking up too. Flounder, whiting and bream all being taken whilst fishing bass yabbies on the incoming tide. Try casting baits to the edges of drop offs as the fish flow along them looking for a feed.
A few braved the seas and got offshore during the week. Flathead and gummies on the reefs. Paternoster rigs baited with pilchard and squid taking the fish.
