Summer is almost here, so it won’t be long before Eden is a buzz with holidaymakers.
With plenty of fishing options over the summer months Eden has something to offer rock, beach, estuary and offshore anglers.
The estuary fishing is at its best from this time of year right through until autumn.
Flicking lures for flathead is also at it’s peak at the moment with the Kiah River and Wonboyn Lake providing some great fishing over the past month.
Shallow running hardbodied lures cast around the weed edges and drop-offs have been working well. Early season is often when the bigger fish are caught as they feed up after the colder winter months.
Fishing for bream has been good with fish feeding around the oyster-covered rocks and snags.
This time of year the fishing can be good throughout the day. During summer the best fishing is often best at dawn and dusk, so enjoy it while fishing is still productive all day.
The hot weather also heralds the start of the bass fishing season with tidal influence in the rivers allowing the fish to move around more, from just inshore to well upstream.
Good fishing can be had at dusk into dark with surface lures providing some exciting fishing.
The beaches have been fishing well for salmon and over the next month you can also expect to catch bream, whiting and jewfish. If the water gets warm enough dart will turn up in the gutters along the beach too.
Offshore the fishing for snapper has been good and the tiger and sand flathead catches have really picked up, with Disaster Bay one of the best spots.
Kingfish will be on the go over the coming months with fish consistently caught from Mowarry Point down to Greencape.
This area also offers some great spots for those who like to fish from the stones with gutters that hold drummer and blackfish as well as deep water ledges that gamefish like tuna and kingfish haunt.Reads: 3246
