Seems the rains are never ending at present, with plenty of precipitation forecast for throughout the weekend.
In the estuary, the better results have again come from the lower reaches, which is to be expected with a fair amount of colour still in the system.
Both breakwalls have been fishing well for bream, with evening sessions using either mullet or bonito strips.
A few flathead have also been taken off the walls by those drifting whole pilchards during the day. Blackfish however remain rather inconsistent, as do mulloway, although look for significant improvement with both species as we progress into autumn.
The flats around Pelican Island have been worth a look for whiting with either worms, yabbies or surface lures.
Lake Cathie also continues to produce some nice whiting, along with some better than average bream.
For those seeking a bit of light line fun garfish numbers have been excellent in the lower Hastings, with the Lady Nelson wharf as good as anywhere.
On the crabbing front, muddies remain consistent with around Rawdon Island well worth prospecting.
Off the rocks, a few isolated reports of long tail tuna have filtered in, but results have been somewhat sporadic.
No doubt the fluctuating water temperatures have played a big part in this, with last weekend seeing a very cool 18 degree current along our coastline.
A few good southerlies will hopefully reverse this quickly.
Elsewhere off the rocks, tailor remain reasonable around Lighthouse and Shelly Beach, while a few early season bream, blackfish and drummer are beginning to show around Point Perpendicular and Diamond Head.
Off the beaches, best results have come from those fishing dawn sessions, with North Beach and Lighthouse holding reasonable numbers of bream and whiting.
For those chasing tailor, best reports continue to come from the Camden Haven, with the odd school mulloway also encountered down that way.
Still a few reports of red weed hanging around but hopefully it will not get any worse.
Offshore, the current has been strong wider out, heading south in excess of 3 knots on many days. As such, close-in has been the only real option.
On the pelagic front, a few mackerel have been about, although finding the warmer water has been paramount to success.
A few reasonable snapper have also been taken from the close-in reefs, with soft plastics getting the better results.
