Burleying from Ashore

Hi just wondering what's the key science of burleying from ashore? plz give me your say, and what you usually do. I found burleying does not always help especially when big swells. no idea about the flow of undercurrent and where the burley would go exactly. also, does canned tuna make good burley? thanks

Search the forums mate as it

Search the forums mate as it has been detailed previously; but personally when fishing off the beach I tie off a hessian sack with mulies, pellets soaked in fish oil, tin of cat food, tuna log etc. to my rod holder. The idea is to let out enough rope so it just washes around a bit where water meets the sand (if you get what I mean) You can shorten / lengthen with the tide and it send out a nice steady slick.

Hope that gives you an idea mate

Cheers

Lamby is spot on there

Another method I have tried is make up some burley with mushed up mulies, pollard and tuna oil, etc. and then add enough liquid to make it slightly runny. I then pour the mixture into old icecream containers and freeze them. Then when you get to the spot you want to fish, you empty the frozen block out of the container and throw it in. It will slowly melt and allow the burley to spread evenly.
You can also used margarine tubs.
This system does not work as well if there is a big shore break.

Hmmm, perhaps you could freeze in a bit of knotted poly rope/brickies string/similar and peg it as above so you're combining the two ideas? Maybe might work when the shorebreak is bigger? Maybe a brick also tied to the line :p (but take the brick with you when you leave!).

 

I dont do much beach fishing, but when i went for herring, someone showed me a trick where if you're using oil to burley, you run a line of oil up the beach from the waves to the sand, then as the waves wash in, they take a bit of oil with it. Put progressively more at the top though. Only need the one bottle and nothing else. I think for serious fish though, proper berley like Lamby or Colin's method might be a bit better though.

I have heard of something similar to your idea Matt

With the burley frozen inside a polly pipe with holes drilled into it.

Yep the poly pipe would be a great idea, I do find the hessian can get clogged with sand and not roll around all that well. One bloke I used to fish did the same as Matt has described except he would chuck in some star sinkers. As the pipe rolled the star sinkers continued to mush the burley inside, worked a treat.

Onion bags

Go down to your local green grocer and get some big onion bags. They have the bigger mesh and don't clog up with sand

I got a chest freezer and i sometimes freeze a whole heap of stuff with lots of water. the water helps it go hard and stick together. Before it freezes I tie a knot in a piece of rope and put it in the middle. By the time i reach the beach it has defrosted enough to get it out of the bucket and throw it into the water attatched to a rod holder with rope. Only takes a few hours to totally defrost. It doesnt look pretty either. :)

Burley.

I've always been taught, "alittle at the time, alot of the time" then "alot at a time, at little times". It works for me, keeps the fish interested then being over fed.

what we do off the rocks, is get a pvc burley pot on a large length of rope. then fill it with all different baits like mulies etc, cat food, pellets, oil, pollard. oilier, stinkier the burley, the better ;)

Thanks so much mates, and that's what i've done finally:

cat food, tuna chunk, canola oil, squid oil, minced chiken liver, minced prown, minced sardine and water; mix them up with bread and bread crumb to very sticky. use flour to make small dumpling pastries, wrap the mixture to make small dumplings. I baked them instead of steaming or boiling, so that they are dry enough to hold the wet filling for a short time. when fishing, i throw a dumpling into water every once in a while.

Poly pipe

Fri, 2010-08-06 22:25

in the wash always worked for me. Mulies, pellets, fish oil, and a big snapper lead on a bit of wire to keep it in there!
