Hey Guys - hope all is going well with everyone and all those mum's out there had an extra special day last Sunday!  Here goes for this weeks report:


There is a huge school of tailor smashing up on a heap of bait fish between Quarry Wharf and Garlandtown at the moment.  Try trolling for these guys or gang up some pillies or throw some metal  slices around - you'll  have lots of fun fishing on light gear for these fish!

Catches of flathead are being had around the entrance to Ryan's creek with nice bream around the "hole in the wall".  Try nuclear chicken for the flatties and metal vibes for the bream.  Luderick are also around with nice catches on greenweed or freshly pumped nippers.

Try your luck for some nice perch further upstream around the boulders on either SX40's or atomic hardz.


Prawns, prawns and more prawns!  Dust off that prawning gear and get out there and have some fun and score yourself a nice fresh feed of prawns as well.  They are plentiful at the moment.

Flathead are still being caught although have slowed a little bit.  With the prawns
"on" your best bait will be prawn imitations such as squidgy stealth prawns, atomic
guzzlerz, or ghost 3" shrimp in the gulp variety (exclusive to Tackle World stores).

The bream are still hiding in the snags, responding well to small diving lures such as Bushy Stiffies in brown snake.

Beaches and Rocks

Salmon, tailor, trevally and bream are still being brought in off most beaches, with headlands fishing well for drummer.  Beware of sea conditions while rock fishing and remember its always best to wear a self inflating vest  (PFD1) for your own safety.


Marlin and yellowfin have been landed outwide when sea conditions have been favourable - your best bet - Moruya or Tuross Canyons trolling Black Magic Jetsetters.  The usual catches of good snapper and mowies are being had around the 45-50 metre mark.  Flathead are in close with the water temperature being a nice 21-22 degrees celcius mark.  You'll also find a few nice "chinamen" around as well.  Watch the swell as it's on the "rise" at the moment so check conditions if you're thinking of heading out in the morning.  

Make sure you tune in to IFISH this week with Paul heading to Foster with Brett Wilson from Shimano for a nice session on flathead and whiting.

Remember - "every day's a great day for fishing!"
