Rocks Marine Bait and Tackle

We have moved. We are no longer at the Gregory Street location where we have operated for the last 15 years. You will find us now at the corner of Landsborough and Memorial ave South West Rocks in the old Charlies Corner site offering the same family service and competitive prices to our locals and holiday makers.


From us here at Rocks Marine Bait and Tackle we would like to wish you all Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year.

There here, Spotted Mackerel have turned up off Grassy in good numbers. There are a few Spanish amongst them but only small fish so far. The water temp has been around 23/24 over the last week but we are in the middle of a North east wind blow that might cool the water down a little. There are also some nice Snapper coming in off the close reefs with the odd Pearl Perch. Out at the FAD Dolphin Fish are around with some big Dollies in the mix. Try Rocks in Line for the odd Jew while Fish Rock has had some fair Kings around amongst the Rats. There has been some great water out off the Goal so with any luck we will see the first of the Marlin for the season. Live bait has been tough to find in numbers but there are some big baits off the bait grounds.

The river is fishing well for Flathead around Clybucca with some nice Whiting being bagged as well. Plenty of Bream along the Walls with some cracker Moses  perch. Whiting are in good numbers from Jerseyville to Smithtown and if you want to try a lure for these tasty fish get a Bassday Sugar Pen, Whiting love them and so do Flathead. Jew Fish have been slow off the Break Wall in very clear water.

There were no reports from the Rock fisho’s through the week but they do like to keep it quiet. With this good water at the moment I would say the odd Pelagic would be about. On the Beaches Smoky is holding some nice Whiting in the white wash with good numbers of Bream and Dart.



Take care on the Bars
