(Photos submitted for publication need to be high resolution, ideally around 1MB.)Luke from Leisure Coast Tackle at Corrimal said the long weekend saw heaps of boats head out inpursuit of marlin and dolphin fish and with reports of marlin in close off Pig Island at Port Kembla,some didn’t have to go too far.
Most billfish caught were along the 50/70 fathom line and were mainly small blacks and stripes butthere were also reports of small blues in the mix with a couple of 60/70 kg fish being caught in close.
There were also reports of a big bust up of large northern Bluefin tuna off Port Kembla andShellharbour late last week.
Dolphin Fish are just starting to get thicker around the FADS with quite a few legal fish being broughtback to the cleaning tables.Most fish are just legal but reports have been that there are somebigger fish cruising below the undersize schools.
Snapper were a little quiet over last weekend and this week with only a handful of fish over pan sizeand they all came from the deeper reefs such as Bandit and Wollongong.
There were plenty of blue mowies around and also the tasty pigfish to make up for the lack ofsnapper.
Off the beaches the salmon just keep getting thicker with some absolute horses amongst them.
Tailor are still about in good numbers and size also with metal slugs being ripped through thebreakers proving the most successful way to target these fish.
Off the rocks there have been some good sized bonito starting to get about as well as loads of ratkingfish that have been keeping the land-based anglers busy both on live baits and lures.
