The swell has settled down and the water is clear again so beach fishing should improve this week.

Try North Narrabeen, South Narrabeen, Dee Why and Curl Curl for whiting and bream during the day ( beachworms being the best bait )  and tailor, salmon and the chance of a jewfish from dust until dawn using pilchards and squid baits.


A few decent kingies were taken during the last few days at Curl Curl on both baits and large poppers. Early mornings seem to be the best time.

There are a few snapper around in close best fished light with fresh squid baits.

As always – Safety first ! We stock life jackets, clip on rock spikes, and boots.

Narrabeen Lake

The lake has had another good flush and is fishing really well again.

We have had some reports of flathead, jewfish, and some reasonable bream being taken.

Try around Wimbledon Ave, Jamieson Park, and the bridge on the main road.

Best baits are Hawkesbury prawns, mullet fillets, and worms. TT Switch prawns in the black and orange colours are also accounting for some great fish.

There are plenty of small bream around the Ocean St bridge area with the odd larger one in the schools.


Not many reports last week due to the conditions. Now that things have settled down, try for snapper on all the inshore reefs. Look for bait schools on your sounder as the snapper won’t be far from this food source.

Use plenty of berley (we recommend the large frozen berley bombs or scented pellets) to get the fish to your boat. The berley will also attract kingfish if they are in the area so have an outfit ready for when they turn up.



Some good reports of trevally in Pittwater during the week. These fish respond well to a bread or pellet berley so berley hard to get them on the bite. You will need to fish fairly light for the trevally – they are a great fighting fish for their size and great fun if you are fishing with kids.


Try for Kingfish at Clareville wreck, Long Nose Point and around the Palm Beach Channel markers using green eye squid or Hawkesbury squid.

Bream are still around the McCarr’s Creek area and have been caught on our quality Hawkesbury school prawns.

For those who like to fish in the cold and dark, Hairtail are in reasonable numbers in the bays further up the Hawkesbury. Try Smiths Creek, and Cowan Creek as far up as Apple Tree Bay.
