Fishing Report 4 September 2020
Weather for the Weekend.
This morning and Sunday morning are looking like good times to fish, Saturday the Ne blows all day, and still it is a good fishing wind.
Good news for the Spotted Grunter fishermen, several big species have been landed at several places along the lagoon both inside and outside the reserve. It is also about this time when the big River Roman make their return to the estuarine system, target these with Lures and live bait, the water is still clean so targeting Shad with a big Sardine bait will be advisable.
The sea is reasonably flat with good colour and the guys caught fish every day this week, yesterday Vino and his friends caught 5 species of fish and came back for more bait so I am not sure what they got after that, their bag comprised of Spotted Pompano, Shad, Spotted grunter, Stumpy and I think a Lessor. Talking about Shad , they are coming up to the time of the year when they undergo a name change to “Mud Bream” this will last till the end of November and during this period it is a no take fish. There are still big one about and young Michael aka Dark Wing Duck landed one of 4kg on Tuesday afternoon. Young Chris managed a Diamond of a fair size during that session. As you can see from what was looking like a tough fishing week things happened.
The good news is that the weekend of the 26/27 September the lagoon will not be closed to boating except for the areas between the 2 bridges N2 and R106. It looks like Sunday morning has a window for a quick trip.
