Reliable fishing for locals
  |  First Published: June 2012

The weather here in Stanage Bay and the surrounding areas has been quite inconsistent of late, however there has been more good days than bad. Luckily for local anglers the fishing has been a lot more reliable.

The reef, islands and Thirsty Sound have been keeping all that frequent our area happy.

The fish are feeding well with some species feeding out of their usual season. Huge jewfish are being caught in all the usual jew holes up the sound and salmon and mackerel are also hanging around quite late.

A few guys from Nambucca Heads had a fantastic time filling their bag limits on almost every species they targeted. They caught some great red emperor, sweetlip, red throat and another family had a good time catching muddies, jewfish and parrotfish along with a mixture of reef fish.

The muddies have been of good size and quantity, and this should continue through the cooler months. Just remember to feel them and throw back the light ones.

The road in is quite reasonable, with a few pot holes and drains and a bit of dust. Please don’t complain, it’s shorter than driving to the territory for the same sort of adventure.

When you come up here to visit, be sure stop in and see me about the local rules and info on the area I also stock bait, tackle and ice. I’m in the tackle shop in the Boat yard. Phone (07) 49373145 or email me on --e-mail address hidden-- .

Until next time, good luck and take on the water.
