The ocean is coming alive in the wake of weeks of rough seas, heavy rain and flooding on the South Coast.
Fishers heading offshore report seeing huge balls of baitfish, probably attracted by the tonnes of nutrients swept into the sea earlier this month.
Large predators aren't too far behind. Unfortunately, most appear to be sharks, ranging in size from metre-long 'pups' to genuine monsters.
Feeding frenzies are occurring remarkably close to shore at times, so keep an eye out - whether you're in a boat, on a board or simply having a dip!
Anglers targeting concentrations of bait over the Shelf are reporting some marlin and dolphinfish.
This week's bite has been south, around Tathra, but these speedy species can pop up anywhere.
With the water temperature rising to 25 degrees at times, the coming weeks could be outstanding for game fishing, especially if the weather cooperates.
Warm water is pushing right in against the rocks and beaches, too, so expect species like bonito, frigate mackerel and kingfish to appear around the headlands.
Estuaries are all clearing beautifully and fishing increasingly well.
The best action remains around the mouths on the incoming tide, where bream, flathead, trevally, blackfish, salmon and tailor are all possibilities.
Baits are still out-fishing lures in the discoloured water. If you want to flick a lure, try one with a bit of colour or flash, like a shiny metal slice or brightly-coloured plastic.
There is some decent autumn fishing right on our doorstep, with the local lakes and Googong producing redfin, golden perch and Murray cod.
Googong boasts the clearest water and is worth the drive if you want to lure a fat golden or reddie from the shore.
