Beach and Rocks –
The beaches are firing up now with good catches of decent sized bream and whiting. Try Collaroy, North Narrabeen or Dee Why beaches – they are all holding good fish now. Try the early morning high tides next week using beach worms or peeled Hawkesbury prawns.
Improve your chances of catching some jewfish and whiting with our own quality, hand tied whiting and jewfish rigs. These are strong, proven rigs as used by our staff.
Turimetta and Narrabeen Rock pool areas all producing tailor, big bream and Salmon up to 2kg. Cut baits such as Slimies and yellowtail are accounting for most fish with some being taken on Halco or Samaki metal lures. Some good snapper are coming off the rocks. Try fresh squid baits at South Curl Curl or Freshwater.
The lake is now open again. It has a good tidal flow and is fishing well. Some good sized flathead are being caught at Jamieson Park reserve and Berry reserve. Try fresh Hawkesbury prawns or CrushCity plastics for best results. Some big whiting are been caught at the Ocean St end of the lake with king beach worms getting best results. The big morning tides next week are an ideal time to target the whiting in the lake.
Big kings have shown up on the outer reefs – try Broken Bay wide, Esmarelda, or the 12-mile reefs. Green eyed squid are the best bait.
There are still good snapper being caught in close at Long Reef and also Dee Why Wreck. Try tuna fillets or squid for best results.
Good luck to the guys and girls fishing in the Narrabeen RSL Fishing comp this weekend.
Pittwater and Sydney Harbour
As the water warms the surface action improves with good mixed schools of fish entering Pittwater. Look for the birds and approach quietly upwind for best results. Flathead are in good numbers on the drift between Long Nose Point and Towlers Bay on the last part of the run out tide.
Large Kingfish are still schooling early morning in the western bays of Pittwater. Fresh squid is the best bait to target the kings.
The large kings are in good numbers in Sydney Harbour as well as lots of surface action comprising big slimies, bonito, salmon and tailor. Small Halco metals are the go to target these.
