Swordfish still going strong offshore with multiple hook ups and landings happening over the past week. Fishing over the shelf with large whole baits dropped to the bottom the method to target these fish.
Kingfish pushed deeper with the sudden cold snap plenty of schools sounded up out at the Panicles off the airport but producing a bite has been hard. A few still kicking around in closer as well.
Flathead and reef fishing a bit slow with only a few bags of flathead produced fishing over at Gabo. The fish that did bite responded well to fresh strip baits fished in 30ft.
Beaches holding a few salmon which have been falling to metals. Davis Creek beach getting the best results when there is a tide change either first thing in the morning or in the evening.
A few bream and whiting in the entrance still with a few nice fish taken on fresh beach worms.
The Main channel producing a few trevally. Try fishing along the markers with small fish style soft plastics for these guys. Weightless pilchards and strip baits also taking a few of these fish.
Harrisons Channel still producing some ripper whiting. Try fishing live bass yabbies for the biggest fish. They have also been responding well to surface lures and beach worms.
Goodwin Sands again producing the best bream fishing this week. The back hump has been fishing the best with anglers fishing vibes doing the best, although these fish have been scattered all around the sands and will usually take small soft plastics as well.
For the rest of the lake the bream have been in the bays and on the mud flats. Look for bait and other active fish like mullet and garfish and the bream shouldn't be far away. The fish have been hitting surface lures but the best lure has been rolling small slim presentation hardbodies or very lightly weighted soft plastics across the bottom with plenty of twitches and pauses.
The flathead have been biting alright in the Narrows and Allen's Head. Try using medium sized soft plastics with plenty of action (paddle or grub tail) to get the fishes attention. Stand out colours have been classic colours like reds and pumpkinseeds. Naturals have also been working well.
