The Iluka area has experienced fantastic fishing conditions with beautiful clear days. The mighty Clarence has continued to deliver good fishing, but maybe not as good as prievious years. Rains further inland have kept the fresh coming. There have been decent fish caught recently, such as local Geoff Head’s 1.3kg luderick caught off the wall on cabbage.
Young Juno Mailey and his grandad Tony caught and released a 1m flathead at Moriartys. Renate Gorton caught a 840g bream in Iluka Bay. Snapper have been on the bite off the headlands and offshore with many good fish coming through for weigh-in, such as a 7kg fish caught by Trevor Breman around the Angourie grounds.
Wicked blue groper have been caught off Woody Head with a 2.1kg beast caught by Tim Geide. Mulloway catches have been good with two fish caught off the Iluka Wall up to 20kg, both taken on pilchards. Trevally have been around, with Henry Phillips weighing a very nice 5.5kg fish caught at the Bluff early this month.
Tailor have been around, but in pretty thin numbers.
Hopefully that situation changes soon. Fishers have been reporting very nice size dart and whiting on the open beaches, taken on pipis and beach worms. Happy fishing, everyone. Enjoy these awesome spring conditions.Reads: 1349
