Easter Fishing Report
Just looking at the predicted weather
outcome for this long weekend & quite honestly I don’t remember an Easter
break ever looking so good. Dropping seas, next to no wind, very little rain
& a fair whack of sunshine are all upon us this period & with the
reports coming in at the moment there’s some great fishing going on including some
terrific captures during the week. Kyle Windsor was out chasing snapper in 25
fathoms when a ripper pearl perch snavelled his pilchard bait & after a
quick fight the fish was boated & on ice. Some decent snapper have also been
landed from our inshore reefs this week with solid kingfish to 103cm also on
Sydney Harbour is clearing up after
the recent rain, mack tuna, bonito, salmon & tailor have all been trolled
up in Middle Harbour during the week so get the Rapala 15’s & 20’s out and
pull them anywhere from Dobroyd Head to Bantry bay as some good fish have been
taken in this zone. Kingfish are on the move around the harbour and livebait of
squid & yakkas are accessible in most local bait gathering areas. More
hairtail have been caught through the week on soft plastics, baits & vibes,
reports from Manly through to The Spit have been where to fish for these guys,
recognizing horizontal lines on the sounder screen will put you of the top of
these sabre toothed bumper bars.
The beaches are turning it on at the
moment, tailor & salmon are being taken on metal lures cast beyond the
breakers in low light times while the king beachworms purchased here in the
shop have been landing some cracker whiting and bream fishing the close in
gutters at Curl Curl, Dee Why & Manly. After dark the whalers are still
causing headaches for the mulloway fishermen but are providing some exciting
fishing on quieter nights, most beaches are experiencing these visitors after
As the swell drops the ocean rock
platforms will become more accessible and are very worth a lure toss for
bonito, salmon & tailor. Live baiting is worth the effort this weekend
while the wind is down just remember to stay safe at all times. Good luck &
good fishing and Happy Easter everybody.
