Hi everyone school holidays are upon us now so the fishing has increased. There have been some excellent size Mangrove Jacks showing up with Coochin Creek producing. Using the Zman soft plastics and live baits all doing well. Huge Bream around Skirmish Point at the moment early in the morning on fresh Hardiheads Clinton has been getting good size ones as the sun has been getting up. Also, the usual summer Whiting and Dart are still in full swing along the surf beaches with live blood worms being choice baits. Anywhere you can find a nice gutter and some wash, you’re bound to get a feed. Remember you don’t need to throw far to get these they are usually right at your feet. Snapper fishermen have had some good catches along the ledge at Banksia Beach squid and Herring being best baits. I have seen some quality snapper there over the last week or so over 60cm.
Garfish have turned up in the passage in big numbers best way to catch them is a tiny hook with peeled prawn or dough as bait. The bigger ones are fantastic eating and great used as strip baits for Bream and Flathead. Plenty of Mackerel around the shipping channel markers floating pilchards with a small running sinker is working on these. Good size Grunter Bream are getting caught around Sandstone Point flats on blood worms also the bonus of picking up some quality Whiting as well. Anyway, that’s all, for now, remember to only take what you need please throwback all undersize fish and crabs. Hopefully, you get time to wet a line and relax.
