Mandy from Dave’s Bait shop in Ballina says there have been some nice whiting up at Pimlico with some fish in the lower reaches at night.

Still the odd flathead around from Ballina to Broadwater and a lot of small jewfish from Pimlico to Wardell.

Mud crabs still around in patches.

No outside reports this week.

Beaches and walls for a few tailor and bream.

Howling ESE around 20 knots Friday morning at Evans Head with a crappy bar and only a few blackfish around the walls.

Beaches had some nice whiting and dart with the occasional hit of school jew and flathead up towards Broadwater and there were plenty of soapie jew around the headlands with some chopper tailor.

Nothing in the way of mackerel outside when boats have got out but a few cobia and squire.
