What a great start to Summer!
In Wallis Lake WHITING are plentiful and can be caught using Live Worms. BREAM are also plentiful around and close to the oyster racks.
BIG KING FISH are still cruising around the Lake but are proving very hard to catch.
The warmer waters in the shallows are hiding FLATHEAD, and they can be lured out with Soft Plastics as well as Bait, such as Pilchards & Mullet Fillets.
There is a very High 2m Tide on Xmas Day.
PRAWNS will run from January, 2019 which will make for great family fun!
Blue Swimmer Crabs are so plentiful, it’s not surprising many are being caught up on fishing rod bait!
Other species, bream, trevally, flounder, tailor and leatherjacket to name a few are regularly caught in Wallis Lake and make for a nice mixed catch of fish.
As well as fishing in Wallis Lake there are many other great activities such as swimming, snorkelling and picnic areas to enjoy.
In our shop we have comprehensive range of snorkels, aqua shoes, beach toys for children, sun hats, sunscreen and sun glasses, the new range of Barz Optics is worth a look.
Come and visit us at Blue Peter Boatshed, we will look after you on Wallis Lake.
Late Summer is a good time to fish at Wallis Lake.
The WHITING are still around in numbers as the water temperature remains warm they are still attacking the surface poppers and small hard bodied lures- great fun!
Live and frozen worms (which you can purchase from Blue Peter Boatshed) ensure a great catch of Whiting.
Look for the Live Worms Flag on Little St, Forster
The FLATHEAD have moved to the lower reaches of the Lake in big numbers. Where there have been a lot of big female Flathead, generally you’ll find a number of males in the vicinity and these make good catches.
Other species, BREAM, TREVALLY, FLOUNDER, TAILOR and LEATHERJACKET to name a few are regularly caught in Wallis Lake and make for a nice mixed catch of fish.
TREVALLY do put up a good fight and are very good eating when cooked fresh.
The Prawns will run in about ten days time after the full moon tonight (17/3/14) for a period of eight to ten days. This will entice the fish to become more active especially the WHITING.
This Summer has been a record year for Blue Swimmer crabs and they are still around in large numbers.
As well as Fishing in Wallis Lake there are many other great activities such as SWIMMING, SNORKELLING and PICNIC AREAS to enjoy.
In our shop we have a comprehensive range of snorkels, aqua shoes, beach toys for the children, sun hats, sunscreen and sunglasses.

Well we certainly have had a cool, wet start to Summer. With the different weather pattern so has the Fishing been a little different.
The WHITING are around in huge numbers this year but so far are only taking bait. As the water temperature rises they will start attacking the surface poppers and small hard bodied lures; great fun!
With the rain water flushing down the rivers the FLATHEAD has moved to the lower reaches of the Lake in big numbers. There have been a lot of reports of broken lines as some of the larger fish grab the bait and head into the oyster leases.
If you like a feed of LEATHERJACKETS, a slow trickle of burley fed out along the edges of the oyster leases will bring many of these fish to your boat and hopefully your baited hook.
Other species, BREAM, TREVALLY, FLOUNDER, and TAILOR to name a few are regularly caught in Wallis Lake and make for a nice mixed catch of fish.
If fishing isn’t your choice of activity on the Lake there are many great SWIMMING, SNORKELLING and PICNIC AREAS to enjoy.

With the water temperature at 22 to 24 degrees the FLATHEAD have really become active. After a slow start to the season they are now taking plastics and lures readily. For those not yet converted to fishing with plastics, a piece of Mullet Fillet or Pilchard drifted along the channels will get you a nice feed of Flatties.
WHITING are around in big numbers this year and are mostly being taken with live worms, which we have for sale on a continuous basis. Surface poppers used in the shallows are also a fun way to catch these great little fighters.
The big BREAM are proving hard to catch. The crystal clear warm water, along with the extra boat traffic has the bigger BREAM hiding in the oyster leases or in the deeper water. Fishing into the leases between the racks will be the most productive way to catch yourself a bigger fish.
Wallis Lake is full of BLACK FISH (LUDERICK) at the moment and are being caught in big numbers by those targeting them. This is rather strange given the high water temperature as they are normally a winter fish.
BLUE SWIMMER and MUD CRABS are plentiful and will only increase in the coming weeks.
The school JEWIES seem to have left the Lake and are being taken quite regularly off the beaches using pilchards or live worms as bait. Big 20 kg plus JEWIES are also about but are mostly caught along the breakwall using live mullet or large soft plastics.
