Luke from Leisure Coast Bait and Tackle at Corrimal reported the offshore currents had some areas that again turned over. The water was a dirty greenish looking colour with very little current movement.
Those who went wide for marlin had a hard time with the good water pushing well out east and sou-east and well over the shelf, leaving green cloudy water inside with very little bait to hold the bigger fish.
There were no reports of marlin from our part of the coast with Sydney and Jervis Bay holding a few fish. However, there were a couple of good sized dolphin fish caught offshore and both near the FADs.
Mick Wearing fished with Tully Mackay last Sunday and put Tully onto his PB dolphin fish of around the 12kg mark.
Those who chased the snapper had a better weekend with quite a few big bags coming in. The reds were spread far and wide with reports of some cracking fish in close on the shallow reefs as well as some thumpers coming much wider over the deeper reefs.
The bigger fish ranged from 3-5kgs and there were plenty of pan sized fish about in the mix also.
The flathead bite continued and some very healthy fish came in over the weekend.
Crews said there was very little current and very little wind, making it a little tougher.
But in saying that those who persisted were rewarded with some great table fish.
There were quite a few good sized kingfish about last weekend as well, not huge size-wise, but some good legal fish of around the 80cm mark.
Port Kembla islands produced more legal fish than Bellambi and there were some nice kingies caught on patches of reef structure up along the Seacliff Bridge also.
Beaches were hard fishing over the weekend with the lagging swell that hung around but by all reports there have been some good fish about once it abated including bream, whiting, flathead as well as salmon and tailor.
There have been a few school sized jew about as well but the bigger ones are still being somewhat elusive.
