Over the next month or two we normally see a changing of the guard. With the colder water we expecting to see salmon, tailor, trevally and big bruising kingfish show up.
There seem to be a few schools of salmon already showing up and the better tailor are already scouting the washes around Broken Bay and eager to feed.
The salmon schools are best found by using the birds. Recently there seem to be more birds than salmon but over coming weeks more schools should cruise through and bring with them bigger predators as well.
When fishing around the schools of salmon, if you have a live-bait outfit, hook up a salmon under a balloon but make sure the rod is in a very solid rod holder.
With this livie it is possible to hook up a big kingfish or a shark. I try to steer clear of the grey-suit brigade but you can only catch what bites the bait.
