The boss man (Gav) put a few sneaky hours in before work last Saturday on the reds after the big blow we had with a very slow morning reported. In saying that we did see some very nice reds fall to the humble old pilchard. For the folks looking for a feed of Flatty the grounds out front of the surf club at Shoalhaven heads would be a safe bet. The Banks has been fishing well with good sizes and numbers of kings but! The man in the grey suit is making it hard to land fish you’ve gotta take the good with the bad and unfortunately the sharks love kings just as much as we do.

In the river the old perch has been showing up in all the well known areas keen to eat hard bodies, plastics and my favourite surface lures. (try the Jackson Ebi Panic prawn) Yes it is closed season so a quick happy snap and return to water is a must. Rolling hard bodies or targeting an area that has lights shining on the water is deadly. Down the front has seen a good run of black fish keen and eager to eat green weed or the artificial fly weeds we have on hand. Fish from 850g to a kilo have been a common capture down Greenwell point way.

JB has seen a mixed bag with plenty of squid to keep the punters happy and full of squid rings over the long weekend. With the good comes the bad and the pesky leather jackets have made JB home for now! Out middle grounds and the bombie has seen kings to 85cm with one of our customers reporting they were eating anything! Jigs, baits , plastics it didn’t matter.

The basin is ticking over nicely! Jim Harnwell from NSW DPI put in a few hours throwing swim baits for big dusky flathead over shallow weed beds coming up tight on what can only be described as a crocodile all 96cm worth cracking fish mate. Fishing out deep (17 feet plus) should yield some school bream with the odd bigger red keen to have a run. Blades and plastics or even unweighted pillys with a good burly trail will stir them up.

Bonus this week sees local passionate angler Glen Sherriff out giving our Mccallums Bream comp a real good go! This dude won’t stop check his pics out below.
