Salmon still worth a shot from shore
Surf fishers have been making the most of the extended salmon run, with reports of good sessions continuing to be experienced at Bluff Creek, Cheynes Beach, Salmon Holes, Cables, Shelleys, Parrys Beach and Ocean Beach.
Herring are also around in very good numbers and there are some big skippy being caught, especially along the beaches east of town.
Tailor have been turning up some mornings and evenings at Nanarup and Bornholm. Whaler sharks have been caught on whole fish baits at Cheynes and Bluff.
The protected waters of Frenchman Bay and the whaling station are worth a try for King George whiting. King George are about in reasonable numbers in the sound and both harbours.
Bigger Geordies have been found in relatively deeper waters of 15m25m.
Squid catches have generally been good along the seagrass meadows and there is also a good mix of bread-and-butter species around.
Reef fishing efforts in the past week have produced pink, red and queen snapper, as well as breaksea cod and small dhufish along the coral in 60m-85m.
The grounds east and west of town have been fishing best.
The King and Kalgan rivers remain very clear and have been producing better catches of black bream in their respective upper reaches.
Anglers wait for a salmon school to pass at Cheynes Beach.
