Yellowfin on deck...

Spring Fishing

 SPRING FISHING

Welcome to Ambition Game Fishing Charters Sydney where Spring gives promise of Summer’s arrival…

OCTOBER  to DECEMBER :
The offshore water start to warm up during October. However there are still winter species around.  It is a good time of year to target Yellowfin and Albacore. The Mako and Blue sharks are still around  Browns and wider. Blue Eye and Gemfish are still available but as the current increases it becomes more difficult to drop on Browns.

Any questions...
A nice King…

Around the inshore and offshore reefs Kingfish are taking up residence. Jigging and live baiting the best way to catch them. Schools of smaller generally undersized Kings can be found close in to the rocks around the Heads and at various other Headlands

The Bucket list Mahi Mahi…

By November the warmer water has  moved closer inshore and the first of the summer sharks turn up i.e. Hammer Heads, Tigers and Whalers just to make life more interesting. Slimey Mackerel and Striped tuna start appearing along the shelf attracting more of the pelagics. We will on occasion also find the bigger Yellowfin Tuna in the warmer currents.

Blue Marlin...
Jesper’s Blue Marlin…

The warmer currents continue to move in through December. Generally towards the end of December and usually around Christmas or Boxing Day the first of the Black Marlin show up. The Blacks are generally small fish but what they lack in size they make up for in numbers. Places like South West Rocks, Seal Rocks and Port Stephens are well known for their runs of baby Black Marlin.

What I have described is a very general overview of what to expected on the East Coast of New South Wales. As I have mentioned the currents are very fickle so finding the fish that travel in them is a matter of observation, perseverance and knowledge of what the currents are doing.

At Ambition, we offer fishing charters off Sydney and surrounding areas, such as Port Stephens. So contact us today to find out more.
Several weather sites report on the currents and are well worth looking at.
