Estuary: Another outstanding week in the lake with Flathead arriving in droves while the Whiting are still filling catch bags every morning. The Step has been producing nice size Trumpter Whiting around the 30cm mark plus a few added bonus Sand Whiting up to 35cm have also been mixed in the catch. The best time is on Sunrise and a flood tide. Local beach worms are the pick of the baits for the Whiting while the Flathead are quite happily taking a Whitebait or any style of soft Plastic. The back of the Great Lakes Sailing Club has also started to produce good Whiting for guys that like to use poppers. Blue Swimmer crabs have also started back in good numbers with witches hats picking up a good feed off many of the sandy flats. Chopper tailor have been sighted in mass around the bridge at night and will take a small metal spinner.

Rock: Most headlands are still holding a few tailor with early mornings the pick of the times to fish. A few guys got into the Drummer down near Seal Rocks while closer to town Bennetts Head is still producing a few nice silver sea bream.

Offshore: A great week with plenty of first hand reports of nice snapper on the northern reefs. Fish still up to the 6kg mark are there to be caught with soft plastics and small micro jigs working the best. Plenty of other reef rubbish around like Sergeant Bakers, Green Toads and Rock cod to make it interesting (and frustrating!). The gravel grounds are really working well and are loaded with nice Flatties up to 65cm.

Beach: Beaches have been a disaster this week with the constant strong NE winds making conditions challenging on most days. Those who headed down early morning and put in the effort got a few though. Fishos have been scoring a bream or two each day plus the increasing numbers of whiting are making a few happy. Beach worms and pipis both work as baits. Jewfish numbers seem to be down with no reports at all this week!
