IT has been a fairly quiet week at Harrington as far as good catches of fish go.
The repair of the wall has not helped as it cuts down the time anglers can be fishing on the river wall.
Despite the inconvenience some bream and luderick have been caught as well as whiting on the sand flats in the middle of the river
There are small patches of flathead appearing in the lower parts of the river, but they are not large and they are shifting all the time. Mulloway have been quiet but should be back on the bite in the week preceding the full moon.
Outside anglers have been doing much better with warm water coming down from the equatorial regions.
A marlin was sighted the other day and good catches of snapper to 6kgs have been made on bait.
On the northern grounds pearl perch and trag have been on the bite and leather jackets have almost disappeared from the local scene.
