Fishing Pittwater weekend

The fish are biting at the moment . In Pittwater there are bream amongst the moorings and on the flats at high tide . Also anywhere you can find weed and patches of sand . You will get the occasional by catch of flathead on your bream gear . If you want flathead go to the drop offs and bring your lures into the deep water along the drop offs . See previous blogs for the gear to use for bream and flathead and the techniques .

Trevally are around and they will turn up when you are fishing for bream and flathead . Bonito are also schooling so look for the birds but many times they will also hit you lures when you don’t expect it . Small baby snapper will keep you interested in between . They are there in large proportions .
Plenty of yakkas around if you want to live bait for kingies , but as of last week they were finicky and only hitting small strips of fresh squid . Try anyway .
Up the Hawkesbury , Jew fish are hitting soft plastics , work the slack tides . Also as a by catch you will get flathead , big bream , big baby snapper , tailor and the occasional whiting . Even the occasional puffer fish ! They are all biting but you have to be patient and persistent . Use your flathead gear with 15 lb leader , 1/2 oz jig head and 5″ jerk shads but if you have paddle tails use them . Let it sink to the bottom and then jig jig it back to the boat always getting back to the bottom .
Good luck , I am working so won’t be fishing this weekend .
