Offshore
The past week has seen a few decent bags of sand flathead coming in from over at Talaberga. The fish have been ranging from 30-80ft. Try drifting in various depths to find the fish. Small micro jigs or fresh fish baits like slimy mackerel and pilchard have been taking the fish.
Sharks have been slow with only the odd gummy taken off the Pump Shed at Gabo. Try using slightly larger fish baits like whole yakkas to target the gummies. Down south also saw a few gummies being caught.

Beaches
The beaches have proceeded the best fishing this week with many large schools of sizable salmon in the 2-3kg have been running very solidly along most of the beaches. Try to find the schools by standing on one of many lookouts and looking for the dark patches in the gutters up the beach. The best method to target these fish has been spinning small to medium sized stick baits and metals in the gutters and over the schools of fish. Bait fishing with whole pilchards also producing plenty of fish.

Lake
Starting down the front Harrisons Channel has been where the fish have been. Fish the drop offs and under snags with bass yabbies or small prawns to target the numerous bream, whiting, flathead and luderick that are in the channel at the moment.
Moving out into the lake there have been a few fish down the bottom lake. Try using vibes or fishing baits around the steep drop offs at Goodwin Sands for bream and flathead.

Top lake has been fishing much better with Double Creek, Palmers Bank and Dead Finish all taking some good bream and flathead. Small soft plastics and or hardbodies are the way to go here. 6ft of water seems to be the depth where the fish have been at.

Genoa River Fire Trail jetty has been a good spot to try land based. Try using local prawns fished on a lightly weighted hook and sinker and cast around the jetty and surrounding bay to target bream and flathead.

Other than that the fish have been on rock walls and sand flats up near Gypsy Point. Try using small soft plastics or vibes here to target these fish.
