Fishing Report – 12 October 2023

North Narrabeen, Collaroy, and Dee Why beaches have good sized surf bream up to a kilo. Also reports of salmon and tailor coming on after dark on pilchards.
A few nice flathead were caught during the week off Collaroy Beach and Freshwater.
There is a shortage of beachworms up and down the coast but if you can get some they should provide you with a feed of whiting as the days warm up.

Narrabeen Lake
Congratulations to all our junior anglers who participated in our school holiday fishing competition.
Some great fish were caught including flathead around the Jamieson Park area, Deep Creek, and the Wakehurst Parkway area. The new TT Switch Prawns accounted for some decent bream and flathead around the Pittwater Rd bridge and Wimbledon Reserve.

The kingfish have shown up on the outer reefs. Try around Broken Bay wide and Esmarelda and the 12-mile region. Jigs and live baits have accounted for fish up to the 1 metre mark.
Some nice sized reds (2-4kg) are being caught off Dee Why wreck – Long Reef in close as well as off Newport Reef. Plenty of burley is required and fresh green-eyed squid or stripy tuna strips are working well.

Pittwater and Sydney Harbour
Pittwater is starting to fire up with flathead and founder being taken on the drift at Palm Beach and the western side of Scotland Island.
Some good-sized kings have also been caught at Morning Bay and The Basin on squid and live baits.
Trevally are still in good numbers – fish light and use plenty of burley.
