Luke from Leisure Coast Bait and Tackle at Corrimal reported yet another cracking long weekend has been and gone.
The fishing was red hot to say the least but was to be expected with the stir up of last week.
There were plenty of snapper around over the weekend with most reporting the inshore reefs around the 30-metre depth was the place to be with some solid fish being weighed in over the weekend.
Anchor and berley proved much more successful than drifting and once the fish found the trail it didn't take long to fill the box.
In amongst the reds there were plenty of blue mowies and also some monster trevally with a couple weighed in at the shop that went over the 1.5kg mark.
There were also quite a few legal kings about and some hard fighting sampson fish in the mix also.
With little to no current, the flathead drifts excelled over the long weekend.
All the usual haunts held plenty of great sized fish and with some tasty by-catch too including gummy sharks and solid sized flounder.
Even better, there was little talk of the tackle stealing pests we have seen over the last month or so.
There were plenty of big drummer and bream for those off the stones also with many of the bream going close or over the kilo mark.
Lightly weighted royal reds fished through a berley trail was the recipe for success for these tasty bread and butter fish.
There were still good reports of some big tailor and salmon also off the rocks with metal plugs and spoons bringing quite a few undone.
