The estuaries continue to fire for the lure casters while outside conditions have been hampered by the weather. Finally some reports of kingfish at Montague Island on Monday, and there have also been some reef fish caught from Tuross Head down to Bunga Head.
Daryl Bond from Narooma Ocean Hut Compleat Angler recommends getting out on the estuaries as they have not been too bad. One young fella has been getting plenty of jewfish between Tuross and Batemans Bay.
Big Kev, resident chef at Bermi Bait & Tackle, got his bag of kingfish at Montague on Monday and some snapper. They then hit the inside of the 6-Mile Reef for some cracking flathead to feed the kids! The water was just over 20 degrees and running to the south.
Once again the Narooma Sport and Game Fishing Club had the pleasure of hosting a delightful group of young people from the CanTeen cancer assist group for a weekend of fishing and boating on Wagonga Inlet.
Sunday morning saw the CanTeen kids out on the inlet for more fishing on the barbeque boats supplied by Narooma Marina and Bill Dudley, and also on Terry Cassell’s wooden boat.
A good selection of fish were caught, including snapper, tailor, flathead and a flounder. Most of the fish were released, but not the prized flounder. And while junior club member Serena Hemmingsen was helping out, she managed to land a 32cm tailor. Read more
Now here is Bermagui Country Club Social Anglers report from ‘Hooked’:
BCC Social Anglers – A great getaway, weekend at Wallaga Lake was the enjoyment of the BCC Social Anglers. New members found this an experience to remember with the added benefit of perfect weather for fun in the sun. A fishing competition encouraged many anglers, but with a will to win, Robert Brown made a good showing taking out the prize. Thank you to those who organised the beautiful Christmas celebration dinner on Saturday, which was once again, a highlight for club members. The holiday period will, no doubt, attract anglers, allowing some more “fish tales” when we meet again in 2017. A healthy and happy Festive Season to all. – HOOKED
