Good news for Sydney with a very hot current of water pushing down from the north and in close to shore over the next few days an hopefully this will bring a few of our summer species along with it.

Weather permitting it would be the best time for to get out wide and have a troll for a small marlin or to check out the fads for a few dolphin fish as there are reports that bait schools are in big numbers.

Inshore reefs are still producing very large king fish and plenty of smaller ones that are taking small metal jigs.

There are also reports that bonito have been spotted along the coast in small schools and this should only get better over the next week. Casting metal lures on light tackle can give hours of fun with these hard fighting fish and they are not to bad filleted and on the pan.

Inside the harbour around the spit bridge there has been a lot of activity with some of our younger anglers hooking up to tailor and rat kings using slapstix lures in the early morning and into the evening and for some the fish have been to big to handle as most of them are using light tackle.

There have been some good reports of good sized flathead being taken in and around the drop off at north harbour while fishing with soft plastics.

Narrabeen beach seems to have come to life as the lake is finally opened out to the ocean and baitfish and prawns are flowing into the ocean. As well as bait flowing out it is also allowing fish to flow into the lake and with the fresh water the fish are getting a lot more active and on the feed.

While lures and plastics are taking their fare share of the spoils it is hard to go past a live poddy mullet or a fresh caught prawn being fished without any weight and allowed to just move with the tidal flow.

Most of our beaches have a few whiting being taken in the gutters although sometimes it takes a bit of effort to find out were they are. Fishing with a running ledger rig and some fresh or frozen beach worms would be one of the more successful methods to catch a feed.
