Salmon still out in force
Surf fishers have continued to catch bag limits of salmon at times from selected beaches along local and more remote beaches.
Salmon in the 3-7kg range were caught on bait and lures this past week at Salmon Holes, Cables, Mutton Bird Beach, Shelleys and Lowlands.
Four-wheel drive enthusiasts are being urged to check the beaches for very soft sand and washouts before entering after the recent big swells and seas.
Bornholm has been producing tailor some mornings and evenings while the gutters at Cheyne Beach and Bluff Creek are holding big skippy.
Frenchmans Bay and the rocks at Middleton Beach have been provided some nice King George whiting some days.
More KGs have been picked up through the inshore waters of Oyster Harbour, which surprisingly still had clear water earlier this week.
The bigger boats that managed to head offshore scored a few red, queen and pink snapper as well as breaksea cod and skippy.
Expect samson fish and yellowtail kingfish to start showing up closer to shore during the ensuing weeks. The King and Kalgan, and most of the neighbouring rivers, are fishing well for black bream, mostly ranging from 25cm to 35cm.
King George whiting were caught at the mouth of the Bremer late last week and there were also a few picked up at Wilson Inlet.
Torbay, which reopened recently, was teeming with juvenile salmon and herring.
Instagrammers @dixonbrothersfishing shared this snap of a yellowtail kingfish during the week.
