Tight Lines – 23rd May
May 23, 2024

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tight Lines 

Autumn Pelagic action, while the mornings are getting cooler, we have seen some exciting pelagic action over the past 7 days, most of it between the 35 and 45 metre mark with Bluefin Tuna in large schools. Anglers have also been rewarded with Both Yellowfin Tuna and Spanish Mackerel being landed Closer to Rotto.

And even though the FADs have been pulled from the water during the past week or so, there are still Dolphin fish through the strong current running down the coast from the North.

Early in the week we saw some nice pink Snapper boated from our inshore reefs. The Skippy have been in good numbers with plenty of fish nudging well over the 1 kg mark. As well as a pretty good bite from Break Sea and Dhu fish for the bottom anglers.

Our beaches especially to the South of town have had a more consistent Salmon bite, with fish being caught throughout the week all the way up to the Dawesville cut. Our Estuary is still a good option with Herring, juvenile Salmon and Skippy of the Sand Patches.

Looking Forward we have a small series of fronts approaching, this is going to stir things up nicely and I’m looking forward to the end of next week. The stir up should bring more Salmon into the beaches and stimulate a good Pink Snapper bite both from the shore and the boat.

Wherever you get the chance to wet a line this weekend as always, good luck tight lines, and remember every day’s a good day for fishing.
