With all of the schools finishing up this week for the summer break there has been a lot of young anglers planning their holidays with fishing on the top of the list to pass the time.

It has been great to watch the enthusiasm from some of these young anglers as they work out a plan of attack to get themselves into some of the smaller king fish that are in prolific numbers available to them fishing from the land inside the harbour.

Armed with some light tackle and some surface lures and plastics there is the opportunity for anyone to get themselves into a bit of action while fishing in the early morning before the sun comes up.

For most anglers taking their first king fish is something they will remember for a long time and will talk about how good the fight was to their friends.
The warm current that has been pushing down from the north brought out a few anglers willing to travel out to the shelf and beyond with some reports that there are a few marlin being raised while trolling along the current lines.

There have not been any reports from any anglers if the fads are holding mahi mahi yet but they cannot be far away and it is always worth a run out to check.

With a lot of green water around most of the fishing this week has been in the harbour and that continues to be on fire with massive bait schools being chased by slimey mackeral, tailor and king fish.

A lot of the smaller king fish are still taking all manner of lure and plastics fished on the surface while the larger fish are being taken on slimies and squid.

Our inshore reefs are still holding kingfish in numbers with a few of them long slender bars of silver (The Hairtail) have been taken while fishing for snapper.

If last season is anything to go by they could turn up in very large numbers and start filtering into the harbour.

Beach fishing has been a bit of a mixed bag with some beaches producing whiting while others a few bream and flathead seems to be the norm.
