The flats are still producing good fish in the river this week with whiting and flathead being the stand out. Early morning seems to be the more productive time of the day so set those alarms and get out early! Top water is still the choice for most anglers this week as the high temps really seem to get the fish up on the surface. We just received our bent minnow range this week and these things are great for the surface bite and are great for when the fish are just not committing to the bite they definitely are a lure to add to your collection!
Soft plastics are the go for flathead this week as they seem to be a little quieter, but are still willing to feed on a good soft plastic presentation.
Again Tuross has seen good catches of whiting and flathead throughout the system. This week all reports point towards the flats around the four ways with flathead up to 87 cm coming in and multiple catches of both flathead and whiting being reported. Bait has proven to be the pick this week for fisho’s in Tuross with sand worms and white bait being the stand out and as always fresh nippers! Good size nippers are being pumped just at the boat ramp in Tuross so get your pump and get down there and get in amongst the action as the odd good bream are showing up on these healthy nippers.
Whiting are still patrolling the beaches this week and it looks like their looking for sand worms and prawns. Salmon have been patchy this week and are hanging out behind the breakers so up your weight and flick that little further and you should be rewarded with a good catch of salmon.
The stones around Congo have been the place to be with nice size squid hanging around. The kings have been just out of reach this week with good size schools being seen chasing bait just outside of casting distance so maybe it’s time to float a live bait out under a balloon to get those big kings.
Still lots of flathead out in around 32 metre range with most boats bagging out quickly using squid or salted pilchards. The snapper have gone quiet but a few guys putting in the hours are finding them still and the word is - down size your baits. The trusty all snapper flasher rig with small strips of bait are showing the best results with one fish coming in at a healthy 7 kg.
Not many reports at all on the blue water out wide so all I can say is do the miles and you might get the smiles.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
