Out west here we are still having some pretty amazing fishing considering its August, which is traditionally the hardest month to be out there fishing wise.
The weather is still keeping us on land a lot, with not too many good weather windows availing themselves to us.
When we do get a line wet though, the fishing is on fire and we recently landed some really good sized fish, plenty of them over ten pound, and in good numbers.
Best fishing appears to be in around 50-60 meters off Albatross Point where there is a mud bottom.
Commonly fish are coming up spewing out little red worms, so plenty of food is sitting in the mud attracting the snapper to drive in with their noses.
All baits seem to be working. Bonito, baracoutta and squid in particular.
The fish are not really aggressive on the bite so you really have to be fishing for them not just hang and hope.
There’s not much in the way of sharks at present just the odd one now and again.
If August is our hardest month, then we should be in for some pretty good action in the coming spring months where we usually see it start picking up.
