Besides River Snapper small Honeycomb Rays were caught and give a good fight on light tackle, when you and them please don’t flip them over this damages the internal organs lift their heads up a few cm from the ground to remove the hook, it is better if you squash your bards as it makes hook removal easier, I saw some nice pictures of Stumpies been caught, they seem a lot bigger the around Christmas time they will stick around for some time before moving out to sea.
A nice size Zambie was beached by Dean near the streams at Port Dunford it weighed in a 224kg ice size fish caught on a throw bait and another was dropped at Dead Man’s however no Diamonds came out in that area. Main Beach is fishing well for edibles but mainly in the mornings the night sessions are proving fruitless at the moment with mainly small sharks, this applies to Doggies are and The Banks. The water is still warm with some cold pockets so go look for them, the water seems cooler at The Banks area than in town. Brown Rays popped up all over the place, maybe they are the “new diamonds” still they are good fun to catch. Dup’s family caught a Longfin Pompano, we haven’t seen one for quite a while.
Mark tried to get out on Saturday but there was not enough water so they changed the trip into a river one. It was the day after neap but coming up to spring tide on Sunday should give us more water to play with. We have not heard about anyone that got fish over the weekend, looking forward into the week it seems the opportunities at the moment[N1] don’t look that great although the swell is below 2m the wind does not look till about Friday.
