Fishing Report – 15 March 2024


Most beaches are proving good for good sized surf bream, whiting and some large salmon especially at night. Jewfish are still being caught on whole fresh squid.

The most productive beaches to try are North Narrabeen, Warriewood in the southern corner (if no weed) and Collaroy near the surf club.


Curl Curl and Dee Why headland are fishing well for bonito, good sized bream, the odd drummer and plenty of salmon. The odd big king has been landed at Cur Curl on squid and larger stickbaits.

Narrabeen Lake

The lake is firing at present with good catches of flathead up to 60cm. Our fresh Hawkesbury prawns are the best bait and Daiwa double clutch lures are proving to be one of the best lures to use in the lake.

One of our young anglers Tommy, came into the shop earlier this week to buy some soft plastics and get some guidance on where to fish. He came into the shop today to show us a picture of his impressive catch. Well done Tommy – 1.48 m long and weight of 22.7kg. Released to keep on breeding.

There have also been good reports of nice bream and whiting being caught up towards the Ocean St bridge – most on worms and Hawkesbury prawns.


There are plenty of bonito and small mack tuna on the troll off Lion Island and wide off Newport Reef.

The afternoons are fishing well for snapper at Long Reef, White Rock, and Dee Why wreck. You will need to use plenty of berley to bring them on the bite.


Kingfish are still moving around the moorings in Careel Bay and off Clareville. Best baits are local squid or live yellowtail.

Some reports of bream and flathead around the flats at Bayview and Morning Bay taken ion both lures and prawns.

We have a great range of soft plastics – many are in short supply at the moment so stock up while you can.
