Fishing Report 22 October 2018

Summer is upon us and the Barra season has closed, so this means a change in target species for some anglers.

Offshore, the Tuskers, Trout and Fingermark have been turning up, as shown by this large Fingermark boated by Matt Keillor. Great fish Matt! Mackerel and Tuna are still abundant and the main area is still around 9 and 12 mile where these fish have been for some time now. Reports on Billfish captures have been sketchy with the numbers of fish being caught and tagged somewhat down on last year. However, this may all improve with the upcoming Ladies Billfish Competition to be held on November 3rd. Best of luck to all involved!

In the estuaries, Blue and King Salmon are about, for those anglers prepared to be patient and pick there tides. I have also heard reports of some quality Grunter being taken mainly on peeled prawn.

Until next week, bent rods and tight lines.
