THE northern end of Pearl Beach has been producing bream, tailor and salmon for anglers working the high tide with pilchards. Live worms and nippers have the attention of the bream currently residing in the Woy Woy channel.
Hairtail are on the move in Waratah and Jerusalem bays. An evening session offering both live baits and ganged pilchards should get you among a few. Don’t forget the wire trace plus the addition of a light stick a few feet above your bait. Metre-plus kingfish are climbing over live baits and knife jigs at The Twelve Mile and Peak.
Wahyu Kusumanjaya anchored on the 35m mark at Long Reef and managed a mixed bag of snapper and morwong using squid and pilchards for bait.
Paddy Dargan and James Carr enjoyed a guided session with Alex Bellissimo at Dee Why Beach. Using locally caught beach worms, the duo landed whiting to 38cm on the lead up to high tide.
Sow and Pigs has john dory, bream and trevally on offer if fishing the outgoing tide with peeled prawns, live yellowtail and employing a constant burley trail. Garfish are schooling in Clifton Gardens. Alex Bellissimo also guided Mark Garrett to a feed of bream and trevally near Manly Wharf using pilchard fillets and Hawkesbury prawns on sunset.
Seas permitting, trevally and drummer to 40cm have been biting on peeled prawns off the ledges at North Maroubra. Burleying with bread will help in getting both species active. Squid are falling to jigs spun from the ocean ledges around Little Bay.
Salmon continue to pounce on ganged pilchards, dawn and dusk, at Bronte and Maroubra beaches. Trevally remain in good numbers throughout Botany Bay with all of the recognised locations such as the runways, Drums and Molineaux Point worth investigating. The odd whiting is still succumbing to live worms and nippers presented along the foreshore in front of the Novotel and Dolls Point.
