The place almost to yourself
  |  First Published: March 2013



It won’t be until Easter when Eden is full of visitors again, so make the most of the great fishing and top conditions in the meantime; you have the place almost to yourself.

Offshore fishing has been good with plenty of striped tuna out wide and some great action on striped marlin.

Closer to shore and down towards Green Cape there have been some great kingfish.

At times they have been biting really well, while at others the fish are there but getting them to bite has been the problem.

There should be kingfish action for a few more months yet and very few anglers visiting the area to chase kingies will go home disappointed.

There have been good catches of sand and tiger flathead, especially down around Disaster Bay.

The inshore reefs have been fishing well for small snapper, with the months ahead the best of the year for the bigger fish.

Anglers fishing from the rocks have also caught good snapper, with most success coming from an early start.

Along the beaches tailor and salmon are biting, along with yellowfin bream and sand whiting.

With the warmer water likely to hang around for a while yet, the whiting and bream should improve even further.

Flathead have been on the bite in local estuaries with anglers using soft plastics having no trouble in securing a feed.

The estuary mouths have been fantastic for whiting on a rising tide with local prawns, fresh worms and nippers getting fish. Yellowfin bream are also being caught in the same areas.

Further upstream, black bream have been around the rock bars and snags but catching them has been tough at times and you need to be there on the right day.

Up in the freshwater, the bass have taking surface lures, spinnerbaits, diving minnows and plastics, especially on hot evenings.
