Fishing Report – 29th September 2023


Good sized surf bream are being caught on the Long Reef to Dee Why beach section. Also reports of Tailor and some large salmon coming from the same area.

North Narrabeen has tailor, bream and plenty of dart. Bream are good sized and are being taken on prawns and worm baits.

Several small jewfish have been landed at Collaroy and South Narrabeen at night – green eye calamari are a must if you want to target these.

Narrabeen Lake

The lake is currently being dredged. This has stirred up a lot of fish activity especially flathead and bream. Good sized bream are being taken at the road bridge area and Jamieson Park.

Don’t forget our junior fishing competition running throughout school holidays. So far some great catches including bream, luderick, long toms, mullet, and some great sized flathead. Entries (free) and details in store. Great prizes on offer.


Some nice sized reds are being caught off Dee Why – Long Reef in close as well as Boltons reef where fish to 4kg have been taken this week. Plenty of burley is required and fresh green-eyed squid or stripy tuna strips are working well.

Large tailors are being caught at Newport Reef and Barrenjoey Headland as well as the closer reefs including Trawleys and the Valiant reef on pilchards or strip baits.

Some large kingfish up to one metre are showing up on the 12-mile reef and Esmerelda. Use fresh squid and green-eyed calamari for best results.

Pittwater and Sydney Harbour

Kingfish are still present in the Harbour with fresh squid being the best bait.

Luderick are also in good numbers from harbour rock platforms and ferry wharfs.
