Offshore
Offshore pretty quiet this week with only a few people getting onto some flathead. These fish have been taken bottom bouncing over at Gabo Island. Best bait has been the old favourite, the salted pilchard.

Beach
Beach gutters holding a few salmon in the morning and afternoons. Fish varying in size and numbers depending on the gutters. Spinning metal lures the best for these fish as anglers can cover a lot of ground quickly to find a gutter that is producing the fish.
A few trevally at the break wall on dusk. Small soft plastics the best method the target these fish. The old harbour also producing a few fish.

Lake
Flathead fishing has been increasing steadily over the week. Fish have been biting best down near Marshmeed. Fishing right up against the banks has been the way to get the fish which have been feeding on the vast amount of jelly prawns.

Other areas to try for flathead are Palmers Bank, Goodwin Sands and Cape Horn. The best lures have been the lures with a lot of action like grubs or paddle tails.

Bream fishing has been tough again with the fish finally shutting down with the pressure of the holidays. But with persistence there are fish to be found and those fish are good fish. The best method has been using vibes or soft plastics out in the deeper water.
For adventurous anglers the bream have also been in decent numbers. Try rolling hardbodies here for the best results.
