Fish the Short-Cut for sand whiting with live worms and or nippers. Reports of flathead, we had a great year last year with the lizards so fingers crossed we can do it again. Best spots this week were Wanda Beach, Tilligerry Creek, Little Beach, Fly Point (from the sand), Shoal Bay Beach, Taylors Beach, Sandy Point and Jimmies Beach. The fish are being taken on both baits & lures. For some flathead surface fun, the old bent cross fires are the way to go, acting like a wounded bait fish in the shallows the lizards fly out of the water to wack them,
Arrow Squid are worth a try at Little Beach in the avo/night. Drift Jimmies Beach for sand whiting & flathead. Work the drop-off’s around Middle Ground for sand whiting and flathead. Try between Red patch Pt & Sandy Pt for sand whiting and lizards.
Bream from the racks around Garden Island prawn and fish bait enough to get a feed, some of the fish have spawned and are on the thin side but a few still in ok condition. Best method 00 running ball sinker onto a 1/0 Mustad Penetrator hook and let the fish take the bait and swim away before striking. Use the bait runner feature on your reel or if not then perhaps consider opening the bail arm to let line peel off freely. Fish at the end of the wall. If fishing night and early morning then berley with chicken pellets or similar for best results.
