Whats Bitting and Where???

 Hi guys,

 

I'm new to the forum and was wondering, has anyone having any luck fishing lately? Hoping to go out this Saturday night or early sunday morning. Anyone got any ideas where some of the big buggers are? I'll be fishing off the beach, to break in my new 12' beach rod!

Find a beach, Find a nice

Find a beach, Find a nice gutter or hole, keep fresh baits in the water, wait patiently and stop wasting time asking on forums, none of us know whats going to bite when its going to bite its all whats working on the day and where the fish decide to want to be at that time go out and try different things best of luck to ya!

like he said mate, just get

Thu, 2011-05-19 12:39

like he said mate, just get out there, sometimes its hit n miss, im still learning, its trial and error. high tide, low tide, wind direction, swells etc.

if your lines not wet you aint going to catch anything, dusk n dawn are better times mate, just get into the smaller stuff and the bigger 1s will come eventually.

 

good luck.

honestly i havent fished at

Thu, 2011-05-19 16:05

honestly i havent fished at yanchep for a fair few months mate, but im sure they would be, given the right wind , tide and either dusk or dawn and the right spot, give it a go mate, and post a report for us after, looks like a big swell this wkend tho , so doubt it would be worth it, i might be wrong tho.

Im up North now

But have fished heaps around Perth, mostly SOR and especially around mandurah. Simple beginners rule is find a piece of beach adjacent to a rocky area or reef. Burley up and you will get some Bread and butter species like herring, gardies, whiting and luckier tailor. At any of the spots always put a bigger bait out, because you never know. I always have 4 rods out, a big bait each, and a smaller flick combo that we use to catch the B&Bs with. Burley attracts small fish, which attract bigger fish. maximum rods you are legally able to use is 2 each.

If you want to just catch

Thu, 2011-05-19 16:31

If you want to just catch something to test out your new rod go for some stingrays, just put a hardy bait that wont get picked at by the bread and butter species, something with a lot of smell. Chuck it out and play the waiting game while. Best times for rays are at the turn of the tide, they like to ride on the tides so when its moving you dont have as much chance for them to find the bait as they glide along in the current. I like any of the moles or rock walls along the coast, they will all spit out some huge rays.

thanks

 Thanks we might try the moles again this weekend, we went there last week and kept getting snagged and bitten off in the low tide, but well worth the shot. Is high tide better then low tide, because all the fish come into the shore?
