Bunbury Back Beach

Mate, The humble aussie whiting are one of the tastiest little fish in the sea nad can be caught by the bag limit at the Bunbury back beach. All you need is a 8' - 10' rod, reel, light line, sinker and some small long shank hooks. The bait is sand worms or any red meat. I'll post a pic of some I got on the weekend soon.

 Thanks Matt, I'm sure I'll find my way to the back beach. Fish the tides , Dawn or dusk, I enjoy fishing for good table fare. HJG                         Shovel snow or fish?Whats a man to do?
