25 hot spots in Sydney
  |  First Published: February 2016



I love going for a fish at any time of the year, but February is one of my favourite months of the year to fish. It’s a time when you can expect to tangle with whiting, bream, dart and flathead off the beach; bream, trevally, drummer, luderick, salmon and tailor off the rocks; and bream, whiting, trevally, dusky flathead, luderick, tailor, salmon, kingfish, and mulloway in the bays and rivers. It’s a great time to chuck a line in.

To give you a head start on where to go during February, here are my recommendations for both land-based and boat-based anglers.

ESTUARY SHORE

1. Brighton-Le-Sands to Dolls Point would be worth a shot using pink nippers, blood worms, strips of mullet or tuna and half pilchards for bream, flathead, flounder and whiting.

2. The Cooks River breakwall for tailor, trevally, bream, flathead, whiting and luderick.

3. The Silver Beach groynes at Kurnell for tailor, bream, whiting, trevally and leatherjackets.

4. Bald Face Point on the northern side of the Georges River for bream, dusky flathead, mulloway and whiting.

5. The end of Forrest Road at Lugarno for bream, dusky flathead and the odd whiting and mulloway.

ESTUARY BOAT

1. Trevally Alley on the northern side of Botany Bay for kingfish, bream, whiting, pan-size snapper, bonito, dusky flathead and of course trevally.

2. The southern side drop-off on the Bare Island bombora for kingfish, bream, whiting, pan-size snapper, bonito, dusky flathead, bonito, tailor, salmon and trevally.

3. The Como Bridge for bream, dusky flathead, whiting and mulloway.
