The bream fishing around the bridge and break walls has again been excellent. Bait fishos are having the best results using Hawkesbury unweighted Prawns or Mullet Gut. Quite a few small tailor are starting to hang around chasing baitfish along Tuncurry Point shoreline. Thumper leatherjackets have also been reported around the racks taking prawns. If you’re coming to the area over the weekend to target blackfish, bring your bait with you as all the locals are complaining about the lack of local green weed. Regular blackfish anglers are pulling large fish out and along the racks.

The rocks have been fishing well for blackfish, bream, tailor and drummer. Drummer up to and over 4kg are common and as such most guys are throwing these back. The smaller ones taste better – believe me! A few Jewfish have also been reported. Weather predictions show that it could be a bit dangerous on the rocks over the weekend so it might be a good idea to leave the heavy gear in the garage and go and chase fish in the lake.

It is again the time of the year when you can venture wide and do some very deep water fishing for species like bar cod. A few guys have been doing this over the last few weekends and were rewarded with a nice feed of fish. In closer the reefs produced a real mixed bag of some trag, reasonable plate size snapper with bonito back again. Schools of mullet moving up the coast continue to attract lots of sharks. Down at the Graveyard and nearer to Seal Rocks I am told that a few cobia have been caught. Locals are reporting whales in close so keep watch.

The beaches will benefit from the predicted big seas over the coming days which will hopefully reshape what are otherwise very flat patches of sand. Locals are experiencing excellent catches of tailor on Tuncurry Beach early morning, while a by catch of bream is common.
