Despite the far from ideal river conditions, plenty of fish have been taken this week just gone. As expected, the front of the system on a rising tide has been producing the better catches. Flathead have been the predominant catch, with nice fish around the 50-70cm range being reported around the airport flats. Preddy’s wharf has also seen a few tailor and the odd bream being caught.
The further upstream you go, the worse the water condition gets. Concentrate from the quarry wharf down to the mouth for be results.
With a dark this Saturday, Coila lake has being seeing lots of prawning action over the last few nights, and this will continue for another week. Good catches of nice sized prawn have been coming out. Grab yourselves a prawn scoop net and light, and go have some fun, with the reward of some super sweet south coast prawns!
The river itself, hasn't been fishing too bad, with the lower sections again on a rising tide showing the best returns. Bream, Luderick and flathead have all been taken around the main boat ramp around to the boat sheds. The river up under the Bodalla bridge has a very distinct, chocolate milk shake vibe to it! My money will be on the front half of the system.
Rock and Beach. There have been plenty of salmon off the beaches to chase this last week, with windsock producing some nice fish. Any of the local beaches will have the potential to have fish, so get out and explore the area around you. The beaches further from the major local rivers will have cleaner water, and probably a better chance of a fish finding your offering.
There have been very good catches of snapper in 40m of water this last week, with the fish taking both baits and soft plastics. White seems to the colour of choice for the snapper this week.
Down south, Montague Is has had a good run of Kingfish also.
No reports as to Albacore out wide this week unfortunately.
Fresh stock for Xmas continues to arrive weekly, the shop is seriously getting FULL!!!

Stay safe everyone and remember “every days a good day for fishing…”
