The last few weeks have been touch and go with fishing around Geraldton. The good news is this time of the year the bottom fish, dhuies and snapper come in closer and can be caught off land reef locations and in water as shallow as 10 metres out to sea. Unfortunatly this week due to weather the days are going to be very picky. The good news is once it clears up it should entice some great feeding activity and hopefully the mulloways will come in closer.
The local beach catches have produced a few sharks and Dhufish off Flat rocks and Lucy's reefs. The S bend beaches have been touch and go with the tailor. Westbank has produced some great 40-50cm tailor and in great numbers, Greenough points have been touch and go with the tailor also however some large mulloway have been caught off the beach about one km south of the second point. The greenough river has only been producing small bream and not much more on red meat. Pages beach and the lookouts coves have seen great numbers of dart and whiting and the odd herring. The back of the Lives has seen fewer numbers but the rare mulloway 10-15kg has been reported very late at night. The beaches at Drummond Cove have seen some great numbers of tailor also ranging from average size to the odd winter greenback. Jackson hole has also seen large numbers of soapies being caught with the report of a massive 18kg mulloway being brought in last week.
Prefered baits lately have been red meat in the river and mullies all along the beaches with a few people choosing to use mullet as bait and live whiting, having great results.
