Plenty of little fish biting during the day to keep you busy mainly, Cape Stumpnose, Javelin and Spotted Grunter as well as good old River Bream and of course the little pesty Thorn Fish.
2 Notable catches this weekend, a Sole big enough to eat for 2 people and a Blue Ray of about 8kg which is not a frequent visitor to our coast. There are still decent size Shad about as well as baby sharks, little Greys smooth hounds etc. and plenty of sea barbells, which in itself is very unusual.
Interesting weekend species wise: Soldiers, Slingers, Catface Rockcod, Cave Bass, Garrick, and Shad. Most of the fishing was done close inshore and with the expected wind on Sunday nobody went out. We had a birthday boy on the charter, Aaron (Who is also leading the river fishing league) he turned 9 and the boat caught 23 fish and he was so chuffed, he wants to go again.
