Waiting for it to open aswell

Tue, 2010-11-30 21:51

Don't normally bother squidding from the boat when down there. Get them from the jetty and then take the catches out on the boat for bait the next day (If not eaten first!!!!)

Last I heard the official opening is to coincide with the jetty swim but may be open before that.... Not holding my breath because of recent delays I have heard about.

Hope

Hope they build plenty of platforms if that is the case!!!!

On the safety side for kids etc the railings are a good idea.... Not sure for the fisho's

Tue, 2010-11-30 23:43

Hmmm i just had a look at some photos, it does appear from 3/4 's the way out theres double railing ?

I can't post pictures up anymore on fishwreck,but yeah seems to be a lot more,,

Mind you the railing side was always best before (the big bull herring always came from there), you just have to stand on the kerb when you are fishing,,or maybe you have to take a milk crate to stand on,,

Out of reach

Wed, 2010-12-01 16:09

of what? We just winch em up, i use 12lb flouro off the jetty for this exact reason. if a squid weighs more than 12lb he deserves to stay in the waterWink

Its hard to tell, maybe a 3

Wed, 2010-12-01 19:35

Its hard to tell, maybe a 3 meter might be a bit small,seeing squidding is your main focus just get the 5 and be done with it, probally be safer as well off cliffs as well instead of on the edge trying to gaff them you can stand back a bit and gaff them as they are coming in,,

Wed, 2010-12-01 19:38

yer i was thinking thats, but lots of lb spots are closer to the water and it might be more difficult to do with a 5. ill probly go the 5 just to me shore. i donno.

I don't bother

Wed, 2010-12-01 20:14

there. Go 2/3rds of the way out. Chuck out a couple of live herring or yellowtails as switch baits and chcuk around a jig at the same time, you'll be amazed how big they can be. 40-50cm hoods are not uncommon.

Switchbaitings always been

Wed, 2010-12-01 20:36

Switchbaitings always been popular at the Busselton jetty, we used to set 1/2 dozen lines up with floats and fish,,

Not sure why i never saw a squid sunday morning,,very suprising was low tide tho,,i reckon a dawn session would be better,i arrived after 9am,,

2/3rds the way out was my fav spot as well,,
