Declan Da Silva with his 1.5kg snapper from last weekend. He was just too late to enter it in his fishing club monthly comp.

Hayden from Compleat Angler Windang saysthe reasonably good weather, combined with theschool holidays and a long weekend, will ensure there aresome excellent fish caught.

The inshore flathead drifts around the 30 to 40 metre depth linehave been producing some excellentcatches with most anglers landing their bag limit of 10 fish in no time.

On the inshore reefs, kingfish up to 5 kilos and a few reds are showing.

Most fish are around that 1kgmark with a few bigger specimens lurking about that will give your drag a workout.

There have been a few quiet rumblings of snapper up to fivekilos also, but you know these snappergurus, they’re a secretive bunch, but one did let slip, only use the freshest baits.

The beaches are teeming with bait which is bringing around salmon and tailor and a few anglers havebeen very disappointed with small sharks they thought were mulloway.

Ganged pillies and even garfish have worked well but you need to keep moving and test each gutterfor best results.

Whiting have been hanging around most beaches and live worms or fresh pipis flicked in just behindthe shore break should get you hooked up.

The rocks have slowed a little on the pelagic front but the bread and butter fish are starting to move in.

Adelicate use of lightly weighted prawns or cunji in around the washes should hopefully produce abream, pig or trevally.
