The holidays have come and gone for another year and now we can all settle back into our normal routine of working through the week and fishing the weekends.
We saw many people out and about in their boats during the nice January weather. Most of the action was around Bullock Island with bream, leatherjackets, flathead and estuary perch the most common captures. There were also a few crabs on the move too.
Town jetty has seen many trevally caught of late, mainly in the morning. The more productive baits have been pipis and prawns. Berkley Gulps have also been effective, particularly the sandworm type.
During February and March we should see luderick turn up on the rocks around Kalimna. I’m also hoping to see some prawns running in the main lake as well. Fingers crossed!
The fishing outside was very good for most people over the holidays with lots of snapper taken. Some fish weighed to 9kg but most were between 2 and 5kg.
There were also many gummies caught with fish of between 4 and 5ft common. The more productive locations were to the east, off the entrance. Good fishing should continue for the rest of the summer.
Six Mile Reef has seen many small snapper and reef fish caught, mainly in the early morning.
Lake Tyers is very full of water and is ready to break through at any time. The fishing has been very good with many flathead caught around the No 2 boat ramp for the land-based angler.
For the boaties, drifting around the mud flats in the bottom end of the lake with soft plastics has been good for flathead and bream. There’s also been some large tailor taken on Lazer lures.Reads: 1913
