 Fishing in Pittwater is good at the moment . Water is clear and still warm . You can find plenty of squid . Just look for any weed beds with clear water and start throwing your squid jig around . They will find it . I caught 6 big squid including one giant yesterday . See the photo . They fed 9 of us for dinner with a thai chilli noodle dish . I am using a 2.5 g squid jig in the natural brown colour . It looks authentic in the water but I know the white ones and the pink ones also work in Pittwater . The squid are also in the deep so here I use a running sinker rig and a 1 metre trace from the swivel . You can also use a paternoster rig but I prefer the running sinker rig as you can make the jig dart around .

Flathead are also biting , look for the drop offs and at high tide the flats or shallow areas . Good around the jetties .

Jewfish are also around biting on plastics and live bait . I caught a school Jew yesterday and a small Flathead while moving around to see what was biting . 5″ soft plastics here with 1/4 oz and if in the deep 1/5 oz jig head on 3/0 or 5/0 hook .

I didn’t fish for bream but I know they are around as are rat kings .

The moon is good for fishing this week and weekend .
