Pink Snapper

I heard that if you fish with a whole squid on a paternoster rig, fishing after a storm, at the City beach groyne you can catch Pink snapper. Is this true?????

Theres regulations to fishing City Beach and FLoreat. Surfie priority at different times of the year. At night wouldnt be an issue I would think.

Sure there has been pinks caught there during big Westerlies like many of the rock sections up the coast.

after a big blow go to a rockwall, chuck some bait on gangs but cast out just in front of you as the storm washes food in and all around the rocks ..

Or use freshly caught rock crabs off the wall and bang a circle hook in one on a running sinker and watch it get inhaled
