Fishing Report – Wednesday 14th September 2016
The town beaches continue to fish well for summer whiting on the incoming tide. The fishing should only get better as well due to the bigger tides associated with the full moon on Saturday. Live yabbies and worms have been the baits of choice.
Off the pier there’s been some nice flathead caught on live pike and herring. There’s also been some huge golden trevally and quality school mackerel caught on live herring and metal spoons.
Throughout the Straits there’s been good catches of summer whiting on live yabbies and worms. Flathead have been another consistent catch around the creek mouths and drop offs. There’s even been some nice barra caught in our local estuaries on hardbodies and soft plastics, with a few thumpers over the magic metre mark.
School mackerel are starting to show up in good numbers throughout the straights and lower bay. I’ve had a few reports from the fairway buoy with catches consisting of school and Spanish mackerel and a mixed bag of trevally. Trolling hardbodies, spinning with metal spoons and fishing live and dead baits all seem to be producing at the moment.
Reports from Eastern Side of Fraser have consisted of good size whiting and dart on fresh beach worms and pippies. The average size of the tailor at the moment seems to be around that 40 to 55cm range. Whole pilchards on gang hooks have been producing the better catches.
