Follow the rising tide
Darren Redman | April 2016

Blackfish and bream can be caught side by side over the flats on nippers and worms.

As winter approaches, estuarine fish will look to condition and fatten for the cooler months ahead. This is a time for anglers to cash in on these feeding events here. Often it’s easy to catch lots of fish in a short period of time.

Topwater fishing works a treat in the lakes
Stuart Hindson | March 2016

This is what can be expected in Tuross at present when casting surface presentations, quality bream and whiting. These fish were released after the photo.

March is a great month to wet a line around the Narooma region and most forms of fishing have recently achieved results. Wagonga Inlet has been a little slow, mainly due to the amount of rain we’ve experienced over recent weeks but that will soon change. With a decrease in boat traffic and angling pressure plus better water conditions, Narooma is about to fire right up.

With bream like this around, it’s hard not to get excited!

Most anglers want the most from their fishing options, so a little homework on the best locations and especially the best time to visit them is important. You can have the greatest area in the world, but if you are there at the wrong time it can be a very disappointing experience! For Bermagui, March is arguably the best month of the lot.

The fishing is still sizzling hot!

Marlin rounding bait up to the surface.

The summer fishing, even with its wet patches, has been on fire. I was fortunate enough to get dragged away from my hectic schedule by some mates from Sydney and out into a crazy marlin bite. We got out there, and to our surprise we discovered acres of bait with marlin swimming all over the place.

Tantalising offshore offerings
Stuart Hindson | February 2016

A solid 70cm flathead caught by Amanda on the last cast of the day, a nice way to end a trip.

What a great summer it has been for those fishing the local estuaries around the Narooma region. Both Narooma’s Wagonga Inlet and Tuross Lake have been on fire, and all species have come on the chew at some point during the day or night. Big flathead (to 95cm) and mulloway are high on anglers’ lists, with both species caught in both systems and in good numbers.

Following the baitfish
Darren Redman | February 2016

Wallaga Lake is a popular spot for the whole family – including the dog!

As most anglers know, wherever you fish there will be a bite window – that special time of the day or night when fish feed in a frenzy. These bite windows can happen very regularly at this time of year along our part of the coast. As vast schools of baitfish congregate, predators follow and incredible angling action ensues.

Is this our last marlin season?
Anthony Stokman | February 2016

Josh Baddock does it again with a quality Clyde mulloway.

The marlin are on and another good season is unfolding. The only problem we have is a bigger predator preying on our bait. The floating factory named the Geelong Star is cleaning up the baitfish from our waters. The government says it’s all cool and it’s just another business deal. But the anglers out there witnessing its operation are seeing massive schools of bait being hauled away. When you see the Geelong Star, you know no marlin will be tagged in the area that day.

Finding gold in the estuaries
Stuart Hindson | January 2016

Josh Hollis with a nice estuary mulloway caught on a plastic and released shortly after this photo in super condition.

The summer holiday crowd is with us for the next month or so, but don’t let this deter you, as there will still be some terrific angling on offer.

Happy days while the sun’s up
Darren Redman | January 2016

Five different species in as many minutes, expect this with a handful of nippers in the shallows.

This season the water temperatures are already high. What can we expect because of this – when, where and how?
