The Ninety Mile Beach has been fishing very well again this month, and with the water temperature increasing as we speak, the fishing is set to be red-hot!
The main target species has been the humble gummy shark, as they are going very well at the moment with most anglers catching one or two. The best time has been the evenings, with most of the gummies being caught between 7-10pm, and if you can get a tide change with in those times, you will be in with a really good chance of catching a gummy shark.
The seven-gill sharks are still around in big numbers, and they have been the usual by-catch of the gummies and small school sharks. The best baits have been blue bait, squid and salmon fillet.
The salmon haven’t gone really well this season, with only the odd salmon being caught here and there along the Ninety Mile, and there hasn’t been any real pattern, they have just been random fish.
There been a few tailor caught during the evenings, and they have been making excellent bait for the sharks. The best beaches have been Golden Beach, McGaurans and Woodside.
Over the next few weeks we should see the first few snapper of the season turn up on the beaches.
To add of the list of target species in the coming weeks, another degree or two in the water temperature and those big bronze whalers will turn up.Reads: 164
