Fishing Report 6/10/2017

Offshore fishing reports this week have been good with anglers reporting that large schools of baitfish are gathering in and around the browns mountain area. With gannets and other sea birds hitting the water in big numbers picking up a feed, it is not hard to find out where the fish are so just follow the birds.

Small numbers of yellowfin tuna are still being taken and with some early season striped marlin being tagged things should pick up quite rapidly over the next few weeks and hopefully give us a very good game season.

The twelve mile reef at the moment is holding a large quantity of kingfish that are being taken on large and small jigs providing you can get past the leather jackets and when the fish go quiet, a live yellowtail dropped down will bring them back on the bite.

A bit of time spent before you make the journey out wide, catching some live yellowtail will always make the difference.

On our inshore reefs there has been some excellent catches of good snapper taken from Long Reef up to Palm Beach with the usual method of floating a bait in the berley trail.

Sometimes the current is racing and you have to feed out a lot of line to keep in touch with the bottom but it is an excellent method to pick up a good feed for the table.

Inside the Harbour the salmon are taking small and large metal lures as they start to feed on some of the bigger baitfish that are available and with good numbers of kingfish patrolling below and around the schools there is always a chance of a good fish being hooked.

Narrabeen has had some excellent reports coming in with estuary perch taking small hard bodied lures on the surface and prawns fished on an unweighted line. Flathead are being picked up in numbers along the shallows with soft vibes and plastics.

On our rock ledges with the conditions being suitable there has been some good catches of pelagics and snapper. While kingfish are gathering in numbers it is looking good for our rock fishos for the coming season.

North Harbour in the early morning just after daybreak has some small rat kingfish showing up around the boat moorings feeding on baitfish.

As always stay safe and enjoy the fishing.
