Offshore very quiet this week with few boats venturing out due to large swells.
Swordfish action has been down at Lakes Entrance with many boats venturing out from Lakes to target the fish will the action lasts.
For anglers fishing out of Mallacoota there have been plenty of flathead between Talaberga and Gabo Island. Fish taking both baits and lures readily. Pilchard of fresh fish bait the stand out for the biggest fish.
A few squid about in the Gabo harbour and on the reefs down south. Lighter jigs in natural colours working best in the harbour and any heavier jig has been working down south.

Plenty of salmon schools frequenting the beaches. Most beaches holding multiple schools of varying sizes. High tides are the best but any tide around dawn and dusk has been producing fish. Metal lures the best method but stick baits and large soft plastics have been working well. Baits also taking fish.

Bream fishing still relatively tough but has picked up a bit with the Southern Bream Series over the weekend showing better results. The fish have been in 2m of water in the bottom lake taking slowly worked hardbodies and soft plastic grubs.
Bream have also been out deep in the top lake and at Goodwin Sands taking a range of vibes. Fish black, silver and brown vibes and see which one works best.
Fish also on rock walls in the top lake taking soft plastics. Fish these walls early in the morning for the best results. The fish have been either right up tight on the wall or sitting back out off the drop off.
A fish up from Gypsy as well holding in the snags. Small jerk baits the best way to get these fish but Cranka Crabs also taking a few fish. Look for snags with sun hitting them as the fish have been sunning themselves.
Flathead have been few and far between but have still been able to target. Fish the shallow edges and rock walls to target these fish. Smaller soft plastics or vibes taking the most fish.
Trevally along the Cape Horn rock walls. Soft plastic grubs fished out off the wall has been the best way to targe these fish.
Tailor all throughout the lake. Troll around channel markers, steep drop offs or bait schools to find the fish. Biggest tailor have been sitting under the bait schools.
