Crowded madness

Sun, 2014-03-30 12:11

 Just had a look along the Duns-Rockies stretch.

Fishos EVERYWHERE!!! Counted 35 cars at Castle Rock carpark and not a single fish captured.

Hopefully this weather will clear up and the swell will drop so we can go back to fishing the west side.

The art of fishing consists of casting, winding, trolling and jigging

while freezing, sweating, swatting and swearing.

Dead right

 That's why I've been getting into em now before the influx.

Having said that there are always places to go away from the usual crowd favourites.

Pretty quiet by all accounts

Pretty quiet by all accounts as far I saw/heard over the weekend at least on northern capes beaches.

Not much action around Cape Nat (many convos with frustrated fishermen) , and agree with Matt's comments - it was hectic at best with some appalling driving on show. 

Inji was flooded with Herring Saturday afternoon and the odd small salmon, I was having 80g metals smashed by herring. A school of salmon went close to the point then moved out wide (north bound - birds smashing water as it moved).

Went for a couple of hours this arvo, only place we found them was the Dunsy side of bunker bay along the rocky section.

Quite a few caught and should only get better as the weeks go on.

Good luck next week.

any current dunno reports?

Sat, 2014-04-26 13:35


hey boys

searched a bunch off threads but no recent reports around dunno.

trying to get a chance on monday/tuesday to take my dad and girlfriend for a salmon bash out of the tinnie. weather looks interesting but possible in the bay only.

heard of them rapant in rockingham etc so wondering if they have largely gone through dunno already?

only get one crack at a father son salmon session each year so dont wanna waste the opportunity...

any advice appreciated.



ps: yes i have posted this on several threads. thought it better than starting ANOTHER salmon thread right?

Now the crowds have left I thought I would go for a flick today.

Four big schools went through and a few smaller groups, nabbed four good ones with a few lost hookups.
