South coast in winter


G'day Legends


Im doing my annual pilgrimage to the south coast in July this year but due to the low water levels in my favourite rivers,

we are taking the 5m Quintrex. I have never targeted queenie, harlequin, and nannygai in winter before and i am wondering 

if they are more of  summer fish or if they are active all year round. We usually fish between Albany and Hopetoun.


Cheers Legends

We catch those species all year round down here.

Your limiting factor on the south coast over winter will be the swell.

Cheers guys.  I grew up in Bremer but have only gone after whiting and bream for years as my kids are so young. 

I remember using mulies for bit a lot of the time but is mullet and occy a good bait for them?

Weather will either be

Weather will either be perfect or blowing 30knots, use to do very well towards the end of July into August on pinkys and bigger nannies in the 35-50m marks. 

Regardless of the weather itll be bloody cold
