Yippeee open at last and now the majority of fresh water has drained out it is tidal again and the big fish are back it is going to be a great time to fish especially as we are coming up to full moon Spring Tides on Sunday.
Sad to announce the Mud Bream season is closed for the next 10 months however the good news is Shad season is open, there are monsters in the surf between 3-5 kg, Snapper Cob are full up and decent size ones at that, keep anything over 40cm and you will leave the beach with enough fish. Amongst the Snapper cob are Diamonds and Sandie’s so be prepared to get torn apart? Shark anglers need to be on top of your game as there have been a lot of smash ups so far this summer and not one black tip has been landed we suspect it is them causing havoc.
The mouth is open and you can go in and out without bothering too much in an average size boat. The guys that went out yesterday and made the video of them coming back manage some bottoms but no game fish, they did not even see birds, however it is time for the snoek to make their appearance in the area behind the wreck, we will keep you informed.
News from the shop.
We currently have 9 types of bait in stock and they are all working however the hottest combos at the moment are Bait Prawn, Sard and Chokka.
