Been a great weeks fishing on Sydney harbour, water temps have ranged from 23 at the heads to 25.7 in middle harbour. With good winds and tides there has been lots of opportunities to get out there.
On fly the surface fishing was sporadic and fly selection was crucial as the fussy fish inspected every detail. Well balanced surf candy’s of the bigger variety seemed to do the trick for casting at surface feeding kings, I had some success with blue/white decievers cast into bust ups and left for dead to be grabbed by a king bellow the bait.
The stand out of the day were large squid and bait flys on fast sinking line cast out and retreaved at depth, 6/10 cast produced fish and another few were lost. Even producing a great size flat head on the squid fly.
Soft plastic was fishing ok with 9” white soft plastic stick baits working a treat. Lots of follows from surface feeding fish. But working the bottom under bait schools is producing good flathead. Whiting and bream have been getting aggressive with the warmer waters so always a good time for small stick baits and poppers.
Fresh squid strips were been smashed by the kings. A poor mans downrigger easily found the fish when they moved on.
Live yellow tail were attacked but mostly spat out bruised and battered. Although downrigged large yakkas and slimies have produced some specimen kings and cobia this week.
There is great fishing all over the harbour right now.
