Late May and early June saw quite a few days of rain down this way.
The diehard anglers still managed more than a few luderick though, mostly from the Post Office jetty. The bulk of the luderick were small but a good eating size.
Under the North Arm bridge and around Bullock Island there have been leatherjackets and trevally caught on local squid. The late afternoon has been the best time to fish.
Up the top end of the North Arm saw a few large flathead boated on large Squidgy Shad; the Silver Fox model has been the most popular.
Some late season whiting have been landed around Nungurner and Western jetties. Pipis and cut prawns have been the best bait.
For those people who like beach fishing we’ve had a good time of it lately. There have been plenty of salmon about. The best time is still early morning and most anglers have been using bluebait, surf poppers and metal lures.
There’s not a lot to report on outside fishing because the weather on the weekends hasn’t been great.
There have been a few gummies boated up towards The Pines, west of the entrance.
For those looking to tangle with a pinkie or two, head out to the Six Mile Reef and be patient. You might need to move around a bit until you find them because they’ve been there one day and gone the next.
Lake Tyers have continued to fish well. The water level has been steadily rising with dirty water coming down the three arms.
The fish are coming down to the main lake with the water. Head up to the Trident Arm and Merlin Bay to target bream, which have come to life with the recent rain. Prawns and soft plastics are still the best options.
Blackfellows Arm continues to see some large flathead and tailor boated.
Long Point has seen the odd pinkie been landed from the bank on cut pilchard and local squid.
There are still plenty of large tailor, between 40 and 60cm, in the bottom end of the lake. Troll or spin a metal lure to catch them.Reads: 1847
