Here comes the long weekend with what possibly looks like a bit of accompanying weather and the fish are absolutely on the chew, the beaches, rocks and inshore reefs are all fishing well as too is the harbour & Pittwater.

A great capture came in during the week of an Amberjack caught behind Scotland Island weighing 7kgs+. Stuart Bedford was fishing with Dave Rothwell using live slimy mackerel for bait when the hoodlum fish came along, we don’t see too many of this species at this size in Pittwater so this was a great capture.

Craig Butcher & Jake Levy fished offshore in 34 metres landing mulloway to a metre using the ever popular squid strips for bait, the guys had a pretty mad session before work also managing a few kingfish along the way.

The harbour is starting to turn it on this week with trevally showing up in reasonable schools, Balmoral, Middle Head and Clontarf are three prospective spots to start a berley trail in the boat and fish lightly unweighted baits out the back, these fish are a feisty little fighter and good eating.

The beaches are holding their own with some good tailor being taken at Dee Why, although the fish aren’t big they are worth casting at when you see the birds coming behind the breakers. Metal lures and Pilchard baits have been successful. Happy Anzac Day for Monday and best of luck in wetting a line.
