Report 10/7/19

Out wide it’s been all about the tuna with fish being captured from Sydney down to Narooma over the weekend. How good is it seeing a couple of local young fella’s that being Locky Dresser, Darren Cornell and Jake Brisbane all putting meat on the deck with some quality yellowfin? congrats boys. While the more sort after YFT have been around let’s not forget about the bluefin we’ve had and saw plenty of reports of big bluefin off our coast ! Unfortunately the weather gods don’t want to play nice this week with big winter westerlies forecast to blow.

Inshore has again been producing some quality snapper and squid fishing for those not keen on putting in big miles chasing the TUNA which is always a nice little treat. It’s defiantly worth checking them shallow water haunts with some bigger reds hanging around that 15m to even 8m depth earlier in the morning then moving out deeper once the sun is up.

The river has been a touch quiet but that’s fairly normal this time of year with the cooler water shutting the fish down. On the flip side Blake from DPI has been putting some hours in successfully capturing, tagging and releasing a few river jew on soft plastics this last week. Mass amounts of perch have moved in from the brackish to the salt rolling hard bodies or soft plastics will make them come unstuck! Not to sound like a broken record but care and immediate return to water is a must this time of year due to breeding purposes.

The basin has been fishing well for the bait fisho’s with reds to 50cm not uncommon throw in a few school bream and you’ve got an awesome morning. The bigger flathead we know the basin to be famous for have been very patchy! Again it just comes down to its winter and everything slows down. Again working them plastic’s or soft vibes nice and slow is a must. Do that and you are in with every chance of hooking that trophy fish.
