This weekend the wind is going to be on the rise from the south east coming up to the 20-25 knots, so offshore fishing isn’t going to be the best option this weekend. Make sure to always check your latest weather report in case the weather changes.
After all the rain over the week, lots of the creeks will be still running dirty but their have been good reports of crabs coming from Constants Creeks, Seaforth area and Rocky Dam Creek.
If you would like a feed of fresh prawns, drag nets are going to be your best option, now that the prawns have been flushed out and moved along the beaches. Armstrong’s Beach and St Helen’s Beach will be the best places to try this weekend.
Plenty of Grunter were reported in the creeks last week, just before the rain, with all the prawns that have been getting around. We recommend fresh prawns or strips of mullet as bait, if you want to try your luck catching some Grunter this weekend. Spots to try will be around Seaforth area, as the creeks in that area have small catchments and will have much cleaner water then some of your other creeks around town.
For those who have been asking the local dams have been fishing very well with large Barra being reported. Hot spot Kinchant Dam has been producing some very nice Barra this week, soft plastics and hard bodied diving lures ranging from the 100mm to 140mm sizes have been doing very well throughout the day and surface lures in the early morning and late afternoon have been doing well also.
