AS we enter into the holiday spirit, it’s pleasing to announce fishing has come to the party.

Beaches are fishing well for whiting and jew, inshore reefs are pumping with trag and snapper, the bay is chocful of summer staples and there’s marlin lurking out wide, according to Paul “Ringo” Lennon, fromTackle World Port Stephens.

“Lot of whiting coming off Stockton, Fingal, One Mile and Samurai,” Ringo reported.

“Typical summer whiting up to 40cm.

“Live worms are the only way to go, on high tide, find a nice deep gutter – can’t go wrong.

“They’ve been getting the odd bi-catch of bream, too, although the bream have been more prevalent inside the bay, responding to surface poppers fishing around structure.”

Ringo said there’s good jew spread out along the beaches, Stockton particularly.Schoolies up to 15kg.

Herald reader Sally Burns reportsDave Hurry, “the human drift net”, caught a nice jew around Merewether this week.

Amy Hook (aptly named from a fishing point of view), reports boyfriend Brad Smith dragged a107cm long, 12.4kg jewfish offStockton Beach last week using live bait.

Bula magic BOB“Bula” Mason, and son Troy “Bullock” Mason have been working their honey holes around Broughton getting plenty of jew and snapper.

Bula got himself a nice mullowaya week or so ago that went about 11kg and on top of that they dragged in some nice reds.

YOU BULA BEAUTY: Bula Mason with a nice mulloway.

“The jew are definitely on the bite at the moment,” Troy said.

“We’ve been getting our fair share.

“If we don’t have time to get live bait, we get our mullet from Woolworths,fresh as –itmakes a big difference.

“That’s what the jewie was caught on, and the snapper have been taking mullet over pilchards as well.”

For the record Bob “Bula” Mason has a son Troy nicknamed “Bullock” and Troy’s son Tyson is known as “Poddy” Mason.

The Mason men like to have a line in by dawn and generally fish the deeper water before slipping over gravel shoals by mid-morning to chase flathead.

“We’re finishing up at work today and we’ll be on the water by Sunday ready to rip.”

Happy flatheadSPEAKING of flathead,David Wood, from Kotara South, caught and released a beautyon his birthday at Hawks nest last week.

“She went 73cm long and after a quick photo was sent back swimming,” Andrew Wood reported.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: David Wood with his flathead.

“He didn’t think it would be a happy birthday for himself after he dropped two fish around the 90cm to a metre mark at the boat.”

Trag raceRINGO reports Charter boat operators have been getting plenty of trag on the Gibbers, 21 and V reefs.

“They’ve been really consistent biting on cut half slimies,” Ringo said.

“They’re getting them all day but dusk is traditionally the best time to go after them.

“There’s been a few big kings on the reefs too, and some nice snapper.”

WorkmateChris “Man”Drake took his mate John Poole out this week and got a couple of good ones, the best weighing in at 6kg.

“They managed it all back to front,” Ringo said.

“Ideally you want to fish low light periods and work your way into deeper reefs as the sun comes up, start in 5 to 15 metres and by the time it gets lighter, you might want to be fishing 30 to 40 metres.

“But the boys were out in ‘gentlemans hours’ and jagged a nice one.

“Just shows if your on the water you’re always a chance.”

Earn your stripesTHERE were afew marlin caught last weekend. Water out on the shelf is good, but it remains patchy inshore, with some days the water good, others the nor-easters turn it over, it goes green and gets cold.

“I know one boat gottwo from three stripies on the Saturday, good size fish in the80kg to100kg range,” Ringo said.

“It’s been a bit quiet since then.”

Bay of sunshineIT’s a goodtime of year to be fishing inside the bay, according to Ringo.

“Jew, flathead, whiting, good bream and plenty ofcrabs about too.

“Lot of blues swimmers on the stretch from North Arm Cove through to Karuah.”

Like all fishing shops along the coast, the guys from Tackle World Port Stephens are donning the flak jackets in readiness for the Christmas holiday onsalught

“It will gobeserk from Boxing day onwards,” Ringo said. “Mayhem. We’ll be open at least 6-6 from Boxing Day until it slows.”

Parro salutesHerald sports reporter Michael “Parro”Parris reports there’s dolphin fish aplenty lurking off the FAD near Port Macquarie.

BIG GAME: Michael “Parro” Parris with his mahi mahi, one of about 10 taken by the group on the day.

Parro, who fished with his brother, father and two nephews, was walking on balmy tropicalwater after a bountiful day offshore.He reckons thereno sport quite like gorging yourself on arm-length fillets of mahi mahi.
