Manning continues to be productive for anglers

THE Manning River has continued to fish very well for all species during the past week.

This continues the recent trend of solid returns for anglers.

Mulloway to 8kgs have been caught from the wall at Harrington on soft plastic lures while bream and flathead have been taken from most parts of the river.

Flathead are taking soft plastic lures and are mainly in the lower reaches of the river, while bream are being caught all the way up to Wingham.

There have been some kingfish patrolling the wall in the early morning. 

There is a school of small fish to 4kgs and a couple of larger fish around 20kgs.

Whiting have been caught from Crowdy beach on worms while drummer have been landed from the rocks at Crowdy Head.

The drummer are full of roe, which is unusual at this time of the year as they usually spawn at the beginning of August at Crowdy Head.

School mullway to 9kgs have turned up on Old Bar beach last weekend before the full moon.

Outside anglers have scored snapper and trag from the northern grounds.

The fish aggregating device (FAD) is back off Diamond Head in about 70 metres of water. 

It should be worth a look in the next couple of weeks.
