Flathead are on the move and Garland Town flats has produced some nice size fish with reports of up to 70 cm fish landed using small hard bodied lures like the Atomic 38 mid.
The backwaters have also been a good spot for the flatties using live poddy mullet for bait. The backwaters are also holding schools of whiting on the high tide. Baits like beach worms have been working well and top water lures like Bassday Sugapens are also catching a few.
The hospital rocks area has had some nice bream hanging around. Tuna fillets and nippers have caught a few and Gulp nemesis soft plastics also.
Anglers targeting mulloway down the front have found themselves hooking up to some large flathead up to roughly 80 cm on live and fresh baits. Nice table sized flatties are being caught throughout the system using both baits like poddy mullet and soft plastics like Zman grubs, the new midnight oil colour working great.
Whiting are coming in around snake flat and also the four-ways. Top water lures like the Jackson pygmy poppers have been very productive and bait such as squirt worms.
Turlinjah oyster leases are fishing well for bream slow rolling Atomic 38 mids in muddy prawn colour.
Estuary perch are holding tight into structure such as fallen trees upstream in the highway bridge area. Zman grubs on a lightweight jighead are hard for them to resist.

Some nice gutters have formed out at North Heads beach and they are holding some quality fish. Salmon are being caught spinning Arma metals. Full pilchards on gang hook surf rigs have also caught some good salmon.
Whiting and bream have been caught in the same area using Instinct whiting rigs and pipi's or worms for bait.
South Broulee, Moruya Heads and Bingie have all been top spots for jigging up some squid using Yamashita squid jigs.
The reef just off Moruya has been producing the goods of late. Snapper, gummy sharks, red rock cod and mowies have all been caught using Lunds California squid for bait.
Reds are also being caught out a bit wider on the reefs using micro jigs and soft plastics.
