Westerlies make it difficult

THE westerly didn't ease till Sunday, making it difficult to fish on the briny.

Sunday was good, with reports of stripy tuna, bonito on the troll, and the yellow fin that were caught were queued up out on the canyons and further afield.

One local boat started an impromptu comp of a case of beer to enter to the biggest shark of the game club point score.

At 9.30 four boats had signed, don't know how many slabs were bet but I'm sure the winner was a grinner.

In close out to 40 fathoms we got snapper, morwong and pig fish using squid and pilchard, and wire traces as the barracuda are rampant and delight in taking your rigs.

The rocks are again a good option with the westerly influence flattening the sea.

Drummer and some good snapper off Gerroa, bream early and late in the gutters on the beaches, with flathead ambushing pilchards thrown at the edges of the gutters.

Minamurra, whiting on worms at entrance, flathead on the sand edges in the river, bream at the railway bridge taking plastic and nippers.

Till next week, pray for the weather.
