With the weather continuing with the easterly winds of late, the fishing continues to be good if you’re in the right places. Snapper can still be found in closer, either south around the mountain in thirty meters or further up the coast in as shallow as 12 meters. While the spiney dog sharks have turned up in various places, as well as the schools sharks (which provide piles of lemon fish should you desire) it’s not a typical July as the snapper are still in close and in good numbers.
The fifty to sixty meter plus regions out West are also fishing well. Just keep moving until you find the hungry fish. The fifty meter contour due west on an in coming tide went well for us last time, producing some very nice Gurnard as a by catch too, which seems to be the norm.
Normally bonito is my bait of choice and what I would recommend. However, those snapper in close or schooling around structure will nail squid, too, so I’m taking both baits at the moment.
