    I get squid there. If you fish there you MUST wear a PFD or risk a fine

    Preferred brand of jigheads?

    This is from the TT website. I'm pretty sure the H next to hook size stands for heavy gauge cheers Richard

    Tips for light leader

    I'm wanting to practice fishing with lighter leader (4-6lb) and was wondering could I get a few tips on how not to get busted off being things such as flathead when they've inhaled the jighead cheers Richard

    Tips for light leader

    Hey dirvin, Thanks for the reply. You're the third person to say back off the drag and play the fish rather than muscle it in. Methinks this is what I will try!!. ta Richard

    Tips for light leader

    Hi Campr, I'm targeting bream and getting flathead bycatch. I think the key is has you say back off the drag and play the fish smoothly. thanks for the advice

    Hi Taz thanks for the reply, afraid my post may have been a bit misleading, I'm actually targeting bream but am getting flathead bycatch

    Tips for light leader

    Hey Derek, i've been using 10lb but have been changing to 6lb to target bream. But then I get a big flathead bycatch, the leader breaks and i retreat back to my 10lb. I think i need to learn to play the fish as you say and not muscle it. thanks for the advice

    I'm pretty sure there are no fees. I normally can find parking in the area circled below, it is free and unlimited. Access might be limited to cars in the very early morning, but I don't think there's anything stopping you from walking in

    Quick flick in the Sunday rain

    Woke up Sunday morning to steady rain, considered staying in bed, but had already packed the car the night before so why not. Got to my spot, there was already another guy there and he looked like a drowned rat. Started flicking not expecting much when suddenly I feel weight, immediately knew it was a good fish. After an enjoyable fight with more than a few strong lunges had a fat 35 cm bream in the net. The rain was getting heavier and I figured I wasn't going to top that fish so called it a day. Richard

    First report in awhile

    Hadn't had a LB squid for about 9 months, so checked Willy weather and Sunday looked like pretty good conditions. So woke up 5:45 and headed to Bare Island. It must've been good conditions coz when I got there, there was already about half a dozen squidders there already. Started on the mainland. Tossed 2.5s for about 45 min with no return. A guy near me pulled in a small one, but that was all I saw. Was beginning to wonder if I should've stayed in bed. Thought I might give Bare Is. a go. There were a couple guys there already and the had picked up nada. The predicted swell was .5m but I reckon it was was over double that. I walked to the edge to cast between waves then step back a few metres to avoid getting wet. After about 20 min felt a dead weight on the rod and began to reel in. Wasn't sure if it was a squid or just a ball of weed. In my experience once a squid is hooked it usually comes to the surface pretty quick, so was scanning the water and saw nothing. But then the weight began that beautiful pulse! Squid on! About 5 metres from shore to finally surfaced, but I was on about a 1m ledge and didn't want to risk a dead lift. Looking back it's probably a good thing the swell was bigger than predicted as I used it to land the squid. Must bring my net next time It was a 30cm hood. Soaked it in a crushed Kiwi fruit as I read somewhere that this tenderises the squid and boy it works a treat. Squid was definitely not chewy and I'm not that good a cook! Did half with sweet chilli sauce and half salt and pepper. Only downside was a lost a jig. But that downside had an upside as I bought three more from Dinga at 25% off!! Thanks for reading Richard
