What a great month of fishing we’ve had!
The rains over the last month of summer have put both inshore and offshore fish on the bite
Offshore has seen a good run of mackerel from the shipping channel and around the channel markers, the deeper drop-offs have been producing sweetlip snapper and cod.
Inshore up and down the passage has seen some great flathead falling to both plastics and baits around the usual sand and mud bars and gutters, bream continue to be caught from the canals, rocky outcrops and around the oyster leases, we have seen some good catches coming from those flicking a variety of soft and hard body lures around Pacific harbour, and those soaking baits around the Avon wreck and the oyster leases and gutters and creek mouths are being rewarded with some great table fish.
Snapper is coming in from the usual haunts and deeper holes around the bridge pylons, the ripples and deeper drop-offs in the northern parts of the passage taking a variety of baits including herring, mullet and bonito strips, hardyheads and pilchards.
The crabs have definitely been on the improve with both plenty of sand and mud crabs around and those handy with a cast net are being rewarded with quality prawns a great live bait in the passage.
The summer whiting have all but disappeared but we are still seeing a few being picked up from the beaches on the southern end of the island around to Woorim, it shouldn’t be long now until the winter whiting make their way here Hope everyone gets out for a fish over the easter and school holidays.
Good luck from all at the Tackle Inn.
