Any method madness on hungry pelagics
Stuart Hindson | December 2016

Gemfish are awesome on the plate and a bit of fun to catch when the conditions suit.

With summer well and truly here and water temperatures hovering around 23°C, it’s no wonder the locals are having a ball on the pelagic action offshore from Merimbula. They won’t have it all to themselves for much longer, as the holiday brigade settles in.

Taking time
Darren Redman | December 2016

There are some nice trevally on offer in the waters around Tathra.

It has taken its time this season to warm up, but finally it has. Air temperatures are up, water temperatures have risen and the fishing has fired. Whether you choose to go inland to the fresh, wonder the rocks or beaches, to stealth fish the estuaries or patrol the bluewater for reef and bottom fish, or you chase the pelagics out wide, it’s that time of year when it’s all on offer.

Eden is heatin’ up
Kevin Gleed | December 2016

The past month has seen a lot less rain in the Eden area than in the Mallacoota area. Warmer days as we head into summer have been the key to fire up the fishing. It’s great news, even though we’ve had warm to hot days, we’re still getting some unusually cold days for this time of year.

Less wet, better weather ahead
Kevin Gleed | December 2016

The past month has seen more rainfall, adding to what has already been a long wet season with still plenty of cool days. With summer around the corner, we should start to see hotter weather – it’s well and truly needed to liven up the town. The cold wet weather keeps the visitors moving, looking north for the sun. Fishing wise, there are fish to be caught so long as you’re prepared to put on a raincoat, rug up and have a shot.

The usual fish are on fire
Stuart Hindson | December 2016

It’s hard to believe that summer is here already. The year has flown by and with Christmas around the corner, we’ll see an avalanche of visitors hitting our shores. The Merimbula region will look more like Bourke Street than a sleepy coastal town. It brings anglers – lots of them, so early morning starts will be the norm before the waterways get too busy with boat traffic, especially in the estuaries.

A place for the kids
Darren Redman | December 2016

For many decades Tathra Wharf has been the place for young anglers to spend their school holidays chasing and catching fish. This season looks like it will be no different. There are all kinds of baitfish that call Tathra Wharf home, providing hours of entertainment for young anglers and older ones alike. This month there are plenty of slimy mackerel and yellowtail, which are falling to well presented strips of fish.

After a cold wet winter it’s starting to warm up. With spring here and summer around the corner, more visitors are heading to the far south coast. It’s a great time to be here, before the town gets real busy over the Christmas holidays. The offshore water temperature is warming up around 18°C, a lot warmer than Mallacoota to the south.

Warm up for a challenge on the cast
Kevin Gleed | November 2016

The town is quietest over the winter months and with the amount of rain we have had, you can understand why. Most visitors and holiday-makers are waiting for the weather to improve before heading to Mallacoota for a holiday, but with spring here and summer around the corner, it won’t be long untilthe town livens up.
