Fish Report 26th May 2010

This week has been a bit quiet on the offshore scene because of the strong south westerly winds, so we have been forced to fish the beaches, creeks and rivers. Tailor are all the talk at the moment with large schools hanging around the river mouths and along the beaches.

Most people are catching their bag limits of tailor by casting and retrieving lightly weighted pilchards on gang hooks or casting and retrieving lures such as the Manns 10plus, Flashas and other metal chromes.

On the days that you can get out a bit, the winter whiting are on the chew and best caught using yabbies, squid or Berley Gulp worm lures.

Please remember that winter whiting now have a bag limit of 50 per person.

There are still a good number of bream, flathead and summer whiting in the rivers and a few grunter, salmon and jacks have been caught by fishing live baits such as prawns, sprat or poddy mullet.

The bass in the Isis are starting to school up in the deeper areas, so jibbing them on plastics and blades will be the go.

The barra in Monduran are back up in the shallows and are back to hitting soft plastics that are slowly rolled out from the banks of the shallow sun-warmed bays with Z-Man soft Swimerz being a hot favourite.

Till next time,
