Luke from Leisure Coast Bait and Tackle at Corrimal reported another weekend of meagre fishing results owing to the weather and of course Mother's Day last Sunday.
Anglers will need to adjust their fishing effort as those winds were just the start of our normal weather pattern over the coming months.
Sunday afternoon was the first real shot at outside fishing with the abating swell and windless conditions and those lucky enough to get out there reported some good snapper fishing in close.
Reds to 3 kilos were taken from depths not much more than 10 metres.
The exceptional weather at the start of this week saw quite a few RDO's rescheduled and more than a few sickies reported in.
Those who did wet a line came back with reports of excellent fishing on the deeper reefs up near Bandit and Trap reef, as there was little or no current to speak of.
Substantial schools of snapper were sounded up and fish topped the 4 kilo mark and in good numbers.
Also on the deeper reefs there has been some big sampson fish and a few reports of large schools of tuna busting up in numerous patches.
More inshore, there were still plenty of kingies about the usual haunts but as per the norm the bigger ones are lurking at the bottom of the schools and down rigging is a must to get to them.
Flathead drifts have plenty of fish on them and hopefully the current from last week has moved the hordes of green toads and jackets further south. From recent reports, fishing results have been a lot better over the last few days than over the past few weeks with a lot less tackle-stealing pests about.
Beaches have still been firing with some massive salmon up and down the coast as well as big schools of mullet and tailor as well.
Plenty of whispers on the mulloway front with a couple of solid fish over the 10kg mark coming in from various northern beaches.
Bream, whiting and flathead are still about and have a liking for fresh beach worms and pipis.
