FISH­ING

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WEATHER - DAMIAN KERVES

BREAM are grab­bing live nip­pers and fresh prawns in Paddy’s Chan­nel dur­ing the in­com­ing tide.

Mul­let strips are tempt­ing trevally and bream at the north­ern end of Copaca­bana Beach in the lead up to high tide.

An­glers are find­ing the blue eye cod and gem­fish on the chew at Browns Moun­tain, with the pre­ferred baits be­ing fresh fil­lets of mul­let or slimy mack­erel.

The Twelve Mile was in­vaded by leather­jack­ets and the odd blue mar­lin was snared at the South­ern Canyons.

Snapper con­tinue to bite strongly at Long Reef, es­pe­cially just be­fore dawn. An­chor in around 40m, fish your pilchard cubes as light as the con­di­tions will al­low and don’t for­get to bur­ley.

Trevally are on the move through­out Syd­ney Har­bour with both shore based and an­glers fish­ing from boats go­ing home with a feed.

Sow and Pigs, plus many of the moor­ings in Mid­dle Har­bour are hold­ing fish, while land­based lo­ca­tions to try in­clude Pars­ley Bay, Camp Cove and Niel­son Park.

Un­weighted pilchards seem to be work­ing best and again, a con­stant bur­ley trail is a must. Bonito have sur­passed the hair­tail as the dom­i­nant species at Pier 2, with un­weighted whole pilchards gain­ing plenty of at­ten­tion. Wahyu from Global Tackle has been get­ting among the tai­lor and salmon to 2.5kg at Coogee Beach.

Us­ing a tra­di­tional pa­ter­nos­ter rig with ganged pilchards, the top off the tide into the evening run-out is the prime time to dan­gle a line. Maroubra Beach pro­duced tai­lor to 2kg if cast­ing out ganged pilchards at dusk.

Good num­bers of trevally and the odd king­fish are on the prowl at Mo­lin­eaux Point in Botany Bay.

Fresh squid strips and small yel­low­tail are en­tic­ing school mul­loway dur­ing the evening out­go­ing tide at the Cap­tain Cook bridge.

Towra has flat­head grab­bing lures in among its shal­lows and Bare Is­land has squid on of­fer.
