Hopefully the current stable winter weather continues as there are plenty of great angling options available throughout the Mid-North Coast if conditions allow.
On the beaches, the recent full moon phase saw some terrific tailor on offer, with many fish well into the greenback category of above 2 kilograms.
North Beach, Lighthouse and Grants beaches are all producing good fish late afternoons and after dusk.
Along with the tailor, plenty of salmon are still about, and the odd mulloway.
For daytime anglers, bream remain consistent, while Shelly Beach has some terrific winter whiting on offer.
In the estuary, blackfish are around off the south wall and Westport.
Flathead numbers remain solid, with Blackmans Point, Lake Cathie and the flats around Pelican Island all well worth a go. Whitebait and soft vibes continue to achieve terrific results, along with suspending hard bodied lures in the 90 millimetre size.
On the bream front, the lower estuaries after dark have fished well despite the recent full moon.
Those fishing yabbies are also scoring some nice tarwhine.
The recent full moon phase saw a few reasonable mulloway active with the better reports from the Camden Haven system.
In the Hastings, good numbers of school-sized fish remain upriver, and the odd better fish.
Off the rocks, despite many ledges now sanding up considerably, drummer remain reasonable. Best reports have come from around Diamond Head and further south.
Some terrific tailor are on offer with Crescent Head and Hat Head holding a particularly good grade of choppers.
Also in the washes have been plenty of bream and blackfish, with Plomer fishing well.
We have also a few reports of longtail tuna still about, although being so late in the season, most reports have been merely sightings from anglers unprepared for them showing up.
Offshore, some solid kingfish to around 10kg have been taken from around trag rock off Plomer, with live slimies achieving the better results. A few mulloway and pearl perch are also on offer in that general vicinity.
Closer in, our winter snapper season is in full swing, with some terrific reds taken on both plastics and baits.
Wider out, we are hearing of increasing numbers of leather jackets, for your targeting or avoidance depending upon your perspective.
Hopefully the weekend will see reasonable conditions for those heading out, which will be a pleasant change.
