FISH­ING

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WEATHER -

THE Avoca rock plat­forms are pro­duc­ing tailor and salmon for an­glers spin­ning with small me­tals.

School mul­loway are chas­ing bait fish in the ed­dies on the north­ern side of the Rip Bridge.

Blue eye cod to 20kg are de­vour­ing fresh squid baits at Browns Moun­tain. Yel­lowfin to 30kg were spot­ted ha­rass­ing schools of sauries east of Browns.

The odd blue mar­lin strike oc­curred at the South­ern Canyons.

Trevally are again the dom­i­nant species through­out Syd­ney Har­bour. Peeled prawns are pro­vid­ing the best re­sults as long as a con­stant stream of bur­ley is also em­ployed. Lo­ca­tions cur­rently fish­ing well in­clude North Head, Camp Cove, Clifton Gar­dens and the ever faith­ful Sow and Pigs.

King­fish over one me­tre are grab­bing live baits and knife jigs at first and last light along the north eastern edge of The Peak.

A few solid kings were also snared at the wreck known as An­nie Miller, off Di­a­mond Bay. Wahyu from Global Tackle found the bream bit­ing de­spite tar­get­ing snap­per in Lurline Bay.

The af­ter­noon ses­sion into the evening was the pre­ferred time, with half­pilchards the bait of choice.

A run of teraglin is tak­ing place at the Coogee Trag Grounds. Squid and slabs of tailor seem to be work­ing best, es­pe­cially if fish­ing a tide change just af­ter dark.

The south­ern head­lands of Coogee and Maroubra are of­fer­ing plenty of drum­mer ac­tion with fish hit­ting the scales at 2kg not un­com­mon. Peeled prawns dan­gled in con­junc­tion with a bread bur­ley is a must — try your luck at first and last light.

The break­wall at the Fore­shore Road boat ramp has seen fish­er­men get­ting among the school mul­loway. Both baits and cast­ing lures are at­tract­ing strikes, es­pe­cially if fish­ing the last two hours be­fore an evening tide change.

Tailor are pounc­ing on metal lures at the ar­ti­fi­cial reef in Yarra Bay.
