With favourable weather conditions and School Holidays, there have been plenty of reports of Summer Whiting being caught in number along Red Beach and Skirmish Point.
The best bait has been live Blood Worms and Wrigglers. Although there has been plenty of weed on the beaches, many people have been catching excellent numbers. Do not forget the minimum legal size is 23 cm with a bag limit of 30. Woorim Beach around Fifth Avenue has been producing excellent size Tailor early morning, with good results on small metal lures – Halco Slug as you can see Dale’s brilliant catch of a 60cm Tailor. There are also good numbers of Bream in the Passage, the best bait has been live yabbies, mullet strips and chicken breast. Claude has been catching good numbers of them in the passage around the sand flats near Sandstone Point, with a rising tide on the flats.
Through the week a few Jew have been turning up underneath the Bongaree Jetty. A couple of the boys caught this nice 65 cm Jewfish whilst using Zman soft plastics – 2.5 inch Curly Tail Grub on 6lb line.
The Flat Head is starting to show up in the Passage along the edges of the weed banks and around the mouths of the canals and creeks. Live bait such as herring and Hardie’s heads have been producing the best catches. Also, reports of Tusk fish have been getting caught around rock bars and ledges in the passage on prawns. That is all for now, stay safe and remember even if you are not catching fish, it is a great way to relax!
