The surf has been a little disappointing lately because of weed, this month however there have been a few small periods of fishable conditions that have allowed anglers to get some good fish.
Firstly, the weed has made the Ninety-Mile Beach all but unfishable. The only saving grace option has been to head towards Woodside direction or wait to fish the beach until after a strong westerly blow. These winds seem to get rid of the weed from that end of the beach and make for suitable conditions. Some anglers have had luck fishing the top of the high tide. It seems at this time, the weed can sometimes settle making the beach fishable for a short time until the current start picking up and brings the weed back in.
Some anglers employing this method have caught some great fish including gummy sharks, flathead and some good salmon. Loch sport has also had some good fishable conditions while other beaches are completely full of weed, and anglers have caught some big salmon, decent sized gummies, and the odd school shark during these times.Reads: 278
