Weekend fishing report from Narooma: photos

CHARTER boats continue to get good snapper off Tuross Head over the weekend, with some interesting shark stories to spice things up.

Skipper Jason Bunney and deckie Matt Betts on The Sheriff fished Tuross Head in 65m get snapper around 65cm with Michael from Canberra a happy customer.

Skipper Nick Cowley on Playstation also reported an unreal day at Tuross snapper fishing with a box of snapper and mowies.

They also got a 35kg mako shark on light spin gear, 20lb leader, and a gummy shark then a 60kg blue shark that they realised at the last moment!

Nick and his mates Tim Watson and Alex Krantz meanwhile on Friday had a morning to remember after landing three jewfish on Wagonga on soft plastics, including a double hook up at one stage!! Unreal fishing and to top it all off was on 10lb leader on bream gear - awesome effort

From further afield, Matt Rollason caught a 71cm Mulloway in last weekend's Merimbula Tri Estuary Catch & Release Challenge and sent in this pic through our FishFiles fishing page.

Meanwhile in other shark news, professional fisherman Jason Moyce of Bermagui last week caught a big 200kg mako shark that when cut open revealed a half-digested dolphin skull.

This apparently was quite a surprise and not the most pleasant experience.

Apparently the mako was all scarred up, from the fight with dolphins or some other mishap, who knows.

Speaking of not pleasant, he also reported someone killed a whaler shark just so they can get its jaws and picture taken, then just dumped the 100kg body next to the bins at the boat ramp!

More recently they also caught and released a baby or juvenile great white shark as required by law as they are a protected species.

This follows our story of a small mako shark swimming into Dalmeny Lake with a hook and fishing line trailing from its mouth.
