|Bream were on the bite in good numbers in the
lower reaches of the river with best results coming from the river mouth
(where flathead were also active), in the Woods Bays and along the Munna
Point stretch. Young Tom Butler from Sydney (above left) tempted his 700gm
specimen in the 'Bays' on Tuesday afternoon using a Davo's
prawn as his draw card.
The deeper waters of the Munna Point area were also good for school jewfish (on soft plastics) and, as per the photo above right, mangrove jacks. Michael Butler hit the jackpot around there on Tuesday night when his floated whitebait was monstered by the 1.5kg 'Jack' he's posing with. He was armed with a Shimano threadline combo loaded with 6lb line.
Apart from that, there were trevally (to 40cm) chasing blue/pink metal slug lures in the Woods Bays and, as you can see by the photo above, quality whiting on the bite around Munna Beach. Cameron Winter was very pleased with the 500gm specimen he landed there on Wednesday. He was using a Shimano Sedona combo, 10lb braid and live beach worms.
