Hello raiders! so I've recently started surf fishing for whiting. My first couple of attempts was somewhat successful, as I managed to get on to some fish (mainly targeting whiting/bream). On both occasions the fish were biting but I had to cut both outings short as I was shivering in the cold being wet from the waist down. Even today while I was fishing from 10am-12nn I couldn't fish for much longer as being wet plus the cold wind made it unbearable (was just wearing short pants and shirt + windbreaker jacket for the top). What sort of clothing do you guys normally wear when surf fishing in winter to keep warm (I know it's not really winter yet, but I plan to fish the surf in winter too to avoid the crowd). Any thoughts/experiences on noeprene waders with gum boots or wetsuits? waders seem a bit bulky and wetsuits might be good but your feet will get wet too? thanks in advance for any input.
Hi Everyone, Up early this morning at the computer when a police helicopter flew slowly by searchlight on scouring the coast 200 metres east of my place. Oh no, I thought, someone missing, someone's family up late at night, frantic with worry, sweating on a phone call that would invariably be worse the longer the vigil went...Turned out a 66 year old man was prawning in the channel at The Entrance wearing waders last night. Somehow he fell over and unable to right himself, drowned and was swept out to sea by the outgoing tide which, at the moment, is pretty quick given the tidal difference. I wear waders to fend off pelican itch...but, it makes me think that I may be better off wearing my wetsuit. You have to be careful, especially at night because if you go missing, it's so hard to find you. KB
