Out wide in around 60-50m of water, the fishing has been good for snapper, pearlies and tuskies, with these fish favouring the deeper, cooler water at the moment.
Some bigger pelagics have been taken in the form of wahoo, and plenty of big spotties.
Marlin haven't really shown up properly this season, but there has been a few here and there.
Closer in, the 30-40m wash and island zones have given up good tailor and the odd kingie, with a few snapper thrown in as well.
Back to around 20-15m, kayakers have been doing well on macks, and the snapper fishing in this zone should start to improve as well.

Beach fishing is in full swing at the moment, with plenty of jew after the mullet run started recently.
Bread and butter obeach fishing has been worthwhile too, with bream, whiting, dart and flathead all contributing to solid bags.
Rock fishing has produced some good tuna, with tuna busting up within 10-15m of most ledges at different times.

In the estuaries, the sea run bream have been coming inside to provide some entertainment for those fishing in the lower reaches.
Some jew have trickled through in rivers, mostly smaller models, but there is the odd bigger specimen kicking around too.
In the mid and lower reaches, the bream and flathead have been the main targets, but the bass are also coming down as well.
