Some land based sessions at Preddys wharf and also along the rockwall have seen some good catches this week. Trevally, Tailor, Bream and Flathead have all been caught using prawns and Mullet fillets for bait. Metal vibes and Cranka crabs have also worked very well.
Garland town flats have fished very well for both Flathead and Whiting. Pumpkin seed Gulp swimming mullet for the Flatties and Bassday sugapens for the Whiting.
A few Luderick are being caught along the northern rockwall , live nippers are working well.
Jewfish are being hooked up around the boat shed using live baits like mullet and Tailor. A snelled twin hook rig is working best for the live baits.
Some sizeable Flathead are being caught along the shallow flats and edges of the system using top water lures like Jackson pygmy poppers. The same lure is also working well on Whiting up around the Four-ways and the highway bridge.
The racks are fishing well for Bream on shallow diving hard bodied Atomic crank baits, prawn and baitfish colours are working well.
Rocks and Beaches
The beaches are all fishing well, the big swell has stirred things up and some nice Bream, Flathead, Tailor and Salmon are being caught. Fishing a gutter on a high tide is the best bet. Baits like Pillies , Prawns and beach worms are all working well.
After the big swell fishing off the rocks has produced plenty of Squid and also some Pelagic species such as Kingfish and Bonito. Stick Baits and metal slugs have been the lure of choice. The breakwall is producing good numbers of Tailor with a few Salmon being frown in , these fish are being caught on ganged pilchards and ARMA metal slices
Good catches of Flathead , Mowies and Snapper are being caught out around the 50 meters of water using Blue box Calamari . Out wide over the shelf Marlin are being caught mainly on live baits with reports in this morning of some nice Yellowfin tuna starting to show up fingers crossed they will hang around .

WYANGALA DAM Hard work! Two words that should never be used to describe fishing but this last week its been just that. The water level has dropped over 10% in last few weeks which has shut down the fishery. Most anglers are reporting limited fish, no shortage of carp if you wish to drop the population levels a little but if your after Cod & Yellas your going to have to put in some serious effort. Try using some of the new Hester Lures these were the only lures we managed to catch a yellowbelly with.
Great Bass fishing , We have been receiving good reports of bass on lures in a number of areas around the dam the most popular is on the western side between the old road and the power lines . Fishing around the wall under the tower is also a good spot. The best lures are vibes either Jackson reaction bombs or Eco-gear vibes don't be too aggressive with these a steady movement is all that's needed to attract a strike.
Good numbers of red fin in most parts of the river casting the banks with finesse stump jumpers will bring quick action. Most small body lures are great for Reddies but the difference between catching one fish and ten is in the action try using finesse stump jumpers or Warlock pros for a better chance of catching reasonable numbers.
Tight Lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
