Seeing as it's nearest water to my place I've been exploring what I can catch out of Johnston's Creek lately and have found it extremely productive. First of all, to call it a creek is a slight overstatement. I'm sure it was at some point but it's a pretty standard canal/stormwater drain in reality. Don't get your hopes up about casting at snags like you're on a real river. There's no real structure apart from a couple of bridges and it only fills up to a decent level on a tide over 1.5m. Make no mistake though, the fish know there's food in there and they come up in big schools lookin
This is a follow up of my post about catching my first whiting on surface lures. I'm currently using a Bassday Sugarpen 70mm. See pic. I'm keen to get everyone's opinions on various questions to shed some light on this Whiting craze. Walk the Dog vs Poppers? - What is better. Favourite Lure? (brand/size/colour) - Add a pic would be great. Best technique/tips to get whiting to strike? I've had problems with follows but not strikes. Fast vs slow retrieve? cheers Kooks
