The main reef species snapper and morwong are on the chew and we have a report of a lady angler landing a 5kg snapper during a local charter. Sand and tiger flathead are also fishing well at the usual spots; Tura Beach, Bournda Island, White Rock, Kianinny and Cowdreys Beach; try at 15 to 20 fathoms. For a change of pace try whitebait instead of pilchards for flathead – often a one for one exchange!
At the Merimbula Fishing Platform, kingfish continue to be sighted though no new hook-ups are reported. Luderick can be taken on green weed and artificial lures, though remain shy. Luderick are also responding to nipper baits in the estuaries.
Trevally remain on the bite in the Merimbula Channel about the Merimbula Bridge and downstream as well as within the main lake; try prawn baits.Tailor are schooling all through the estuaries including Merimbula Lake and on Main Beach. Merimbula Lake has returned a few dusky flathead; best using soft plastics.
