Reports for solid bream being taken off both the Main break wall and the Anchorage on floating prawn and fish baits. Blackfish continue to produce in and around the Main break wall as well as the Anchorage & Little Beach Wharf. With fish in top condition being taken on both sides of the wall. It appears the outside is producing better, remember having the float sitting too high in the water will make it harder for the fish to take down and they will let the bait go. The float needs to be as low in the water as possible sure makes the difference. Blackfish tip: When it comes to how much bait to use on your little green hook, “Less is more”. If you’re not getting fish and the guy beside you is then ask how deep he is fishing. Be sure to drop into Duffs for some tasty weed. I have had a number of customers ask for weed fly’s, so we now have 3 different types in-store for something different. I personally am a traditional black fisherman nevertheless the reports are the flies work well – so why not? Vass fished the Nelson Bay Break wall yesterday taking 12 cuttlefish for snapper bait. This is the time of year the cuttlefish spawn and they are easily caught on the squid jig making a fantastic snapper, Jew or King Bait. Schools of Long Toms continue off Shoal Bay Wharf snapping at anything that swims past. Reports of Tailor being taken off the Tubes and Shoal Bay Wharf as well as the beach. Reports of bream on fish baits & prawns increasing on the top of the tide. Bream continue schooling on the inside of the Anchorage Break wall at Corlette. Leatherjackets continue taking prawn and baby squid baits off the Sally Shores Wharf. Reports of Flathead at Corrie Island near the ‘Short Cut’ on soft plastics. Jimmy says he is still getting mud crabs in Tilligerry, which is fantastic for this time of year. Reports of Tailor& bream being taken from Wanda Head on fish baits. Numerous reports off bream from the Boulders on tailor and mullet baits. Remember the Month of July is Bream – The Biggest Bream for July wins $100 in-store voucher. Check out our competition page.
