Stay away from the corona virus and get yourself out fishing! Inshore over the last week or so has been fishing really well with a good range of fish being caught, everything from trevally and flathead through to jewfish. Offshore action only seems to consistent down south, but still a bit happening off our waters.
Off shore has still been hot the last couple of weeks with consistent catches of marlin off Sydney and further north, and off Jervis Bay and further south. Also good numbers of kingfish and dolphinfish around. Inshore is also firing after the rains and now the clearing of the water, big jewfish, bream, flathead, whiting, bass and more being caught.
Plenty of action inshore and along the coast this week. Kingfish are plentiful in our local systems, flathead are also prominent at this time. Dollies are still hanging around the FADs with some really big model fish being caught. Jewfish seem to being caught more and more in Botany Bay too.
Striped Marlin and Dolphinfish are being caught regularly offshore at the moment, the FADs have been fishing really well with the water up to 25.5ºC on Monday. Inshore there have been lots of Kingfish caught, and typical estuary species like flathead, bream and whiting are also being caught all over.
Lots of Jewfish being caught recently, and good sized fish too. Bigger Kingfish are starting to show up our coast and they’re also being caught in our estuaries. Estuaries are firing with typical species like bream, flathead and whiting, and the water’s warming up so the shallow water surface bite is coming on!
Inshore fishing is really heating up now! Kingfish are being caught more frequently and with more meat on them. Land based fishing is picking up now to with good schools of salmon, plus snapper being caught. Yellowfin Tuna are still around just a little more patchy then they have been lately being the end of the season.
Botany Bay fished well this week with Flathead being the main culprit, plenty of Bream too. Pelagics are on fire off the rocks on the south coast at the moment, Kings, Bonnies and Mac Tuna in the mix. Still some action out wide and Lake Illawarra is producing the usual suspects.
