Closer in, squid have been fishing well, but again, finding the clear water is vital. For the landbased fishos, hotspots like South Mole and Woodies have been producing pretty decent numbers lately.
For those who have figured it out, some good catches of snapper have been coming from within the Cockburn Sound but the fishing can be iffy. A strong but fine berley trail on dusk or dawn will definitely put you ahead of the game.
Yet again this week some great fish have been landed off the stones in our South West. More reports of reasonably sized blue grouper have come in and also some seriously big kings. Check out this horse of a yellowtail kingy on stickbait from Jamie Thompson!
Mulloway to a meter have been caught between Quinns and Two Rocks, with the odd chopper tailor in the mix. The northern beaches have been seriously consistent for the past month now, and are well worth a shot if you are in search of a silvery slab. It wont be long until the big green backs beging patrolling the northern beaches, so now is a great time to jump in store and get a few new stickbaits and poppers ready.
Inside the river, the bream have been particuarly active on dusk and dawn in our rivers. Anglers like staff member Pete Berlinski have been having a ball in these low light periods with top water lures and hardbody minnows like this Zipbait Kahmsin Tiny.
