ANOTHER tough week for the fishos last week with plenty of wind blowing.
It’s been a very constant pattern the last couple of months with the trade winds really hanging in.
This week is looking like much the same. But with the tides dropping back a bit in size, the rivers and creeks will be worth a shot and are a pretty good option while the wind’s blowing.
There are a few crabs around still and I think the rain a couple of weeks ago has helped with them.
Also, there won’t be as much fresh around now, so there should be some grunter and salmon moving back into the rivers and creeks too.
The more protected creek mouth areas and beaches have been producing some good-sized whiting and there’s plenty of flatties around too.
As I mentioned last week, the fishing pontoon at Shute and some of the local rock walls have been fishing pretty well with plenty of trevally and small mackerel and queenies being caught.
There’s a lot of mackerel, both schoolies and Spanish about, but the strong wind makes it hard to get out amongst them but, in saying that, there’s still been a few caught in close.
As I mentioned, it looks like another windy week on the way, so we just have to be patient and hope the weather patterns turn in our favour soon.
