FISH­ING

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SUNDAY FIT - WITH DAMIAN KERVES

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.
