The best of the south
Darren Redman | March 2014

All season there have been good dusky flathead around Bermagui like this 65cm fish.

The beginning of autumn is undoubtedly the best month of the year to fish the south coast, especially at Bermagui. Estuaries are firing, bass are on the chew in Brogo, Reefs are good, so are the beaches and rocks plus the game scene is fantastic.

Solid fish on the prowl
Stuart Hindson | February 2014

Young Jake had some great fishing at Tuross. He managed these whiting, plus bream and flathead all taken on surface walkers. He released everything he caught.

Narooma and its surrounds have copped their fare share of boat traffic lately, but with quite a few visitors finishing their holiday it just may be the time to get out there and wet a line.

Super surface luring
Stuart Hindson | January 2014

Your best chance of catching a mulloway in the estuaries is an evening session with live bait or fresh strip bait.

With the water temperature around 22-24°C it's a great time of year to wet a line, in spite of the crowds that the holiday period brings.

Great results before the rush
Dean Dawson | December 2013

This little yellowfin engulfed a stickbait on the first cast, a top way to start the gamefish season. The big fish should be on the cards too this month.

This is a fantastic time to get out on the water and chase a few fish. Even though we’re about to start the crazy holiday season and be inundated with the inevitable congestion as tourists descending upon the coast, early December can be one of the quieter crowd-free times to wet a line. With many families tightening the pre-Christmas budget the waterways will be receiving less than normal angling pressure.

Fish smarter not harder
Stuart Hindson | December 2013

A typical sized school mulloway of 78cm. There should be plenty of these fellas around over coming weeks but you’ll need to put in the hard yards.

Over the next few weeks Narooma's population will swell to 25,000+ people making it extremely busy in town and out on the water.
