In the harbour the evening snapper fishing has been really good lately, with numerous boats parking up and enjoying good snapper sessions right into the evening hours. The past week has been better fishing on the incoming tide with the edges along middle bank in the harbour producing snapper to 50cm. Bonito and mackerel stray-line baits being the best baits. Now I alsways say it…take lots of berley will give you a massive advantage, as without it your baits can get ignored in the 2-3 knots of current
