Report 16/8/19

Favorable conditions through last week saw plenty of fisho’s hit the water to try and get a feed. Blue water guys headed north for good numbers of Pearl Perch off Grassy and Scotts Head. Fish were caught in 25 meters and wider off the landmarks with some fish around the 3.5 kilo mark. There were a few Snapper amongst them but at this stage no size about them. Off the Jail there wasn’t a lot caught apart from a few Flathead on the gravel. Fish Rock continues to fire with King Fish in abundance jumping on pretty well anything you through at them. Green Island has Kings as well with some monster Bream in close. Leather Jackets are still out past 60 meters but if you can through them you will find a Snapper or two on the bottom.

I am not sure if it’s after the spawn or on the full moon but Blackfish are about and they’re hungry, with the Break Wall your best bet to hook these fish. Bream are still in numbers but that bigger unit is a little harder to find now. Up river around Jerseyville you should find a Bream or a School Jewfish around the pylons of the Bridge at night. Throw some lures around the drop off on the river at the moment and you will snag a Flathead, not much size about them mostly around 40 to 50 cm. No reports of Jew last week but the river has gone very clear again especially at the mouth.

On the beaches they are getting the odd good Bream off Smoky with a few Tailor in the mix along with some early Whiting coming in as well. Gap has been producing Tailor with the north side of the beach fishing better. Flathead were caught off Back Beach near the opening of the creek through the week. Rock Hoppers are getting amongst some big Kings off the ledges.
