Went for a Surfcast and Fly fish at a local river mouth today.
Had my three surfcasters out, two baited with prawn and one with mullet. While they fished I caught a steady stream of small to medium size KY. Checked the surfcasters every hour or so but only caught a single small KY on them. Basically fished the out going and low tide, and there was a gentle onshore wind producing a chop.
Combing surfcasting and river mouth spinning/fly is a good combination I feel. Now I just need to wait until the big ones turn up31/01/2009 at 3:35 pm #12363rdeejayParticipant
Fished Birdlings flat on saturday from 2:30 to 8:30pm, caught about a dozen tiny dogfish(grrr) 2 red cod, one keeper of a decent size and one put back, 2 school sharks 1 landed and put back and one rather big school shark which was just a big dead weight on my line so took a bit of effort to bring it in just to have it ping off the hook when beached in the surf(damn undertow!). Conditions were rough with a big swell and a massive breaker which caused a bit of havoc with the line at times and was impossible to detect bites but i use self setting recurves so just checked the line now and again. Only 3 other people fishing after around 4 and they caught nothing, so go figure.31/01/2009 at 11:26 pm #12367gunnercoopsParticipant
3 of us have just come back from Amberley…and for our efforts have one small school shark to show…and caught on a manky bit of squid. Had one decent bite/pull on raw prawn and that was it. ..was going to go to Baileys but was put off by swellmap..maybe should have gone anyway.31/01/2009 at 11:29 pm #12368
I fished at the Pier Saturday. Caught plenty of crabs, mullet and kahawai during the day. Few good size School Sharks and a big Rig caught once it got dark. Also two good size Kahawai hooked, one during the day fell off when they were pulling it up. I didn’t seem to have much luck with the School sharks once it got dark, and only ended up getting a couple tiny ones.31/01/2009 at 11:33 pm #12369PierMasterParticipant

Not sure, I thought it would be a bit rough at the beaches from the Southerly yesterday. Might go out to Dorie beach later.
Here’s a picture of that Rig, not a very good picture though.31/01/2009 at 11:59 pm #12375
