Hen & Chicken Bay

Recommended Posts

Ok so I’ve come to the conclusion that I won’t be catching another bass this season due to the lockdown and my spot being an hour from home.

So I’m considering an early morning out in the Hobie in Hen & Chicken Bay. I only live a few streets away from the bay and believe it or not I’ve never taken the Hobie out before. (crazy I know)

My plan was to launch at Dobroyd Aquatic club ramp, and paddle straight across to fish the mored boats along the northwest side. Throwing small hardbodies and plastics.

Expectations will be low but I figure it’s a nice day out, too close to home to not give it a shot, and any fish will be a bonus. Does anyone have any advice or tips they could share?

Hen and chicken right around to Friend ave, a great place to fish, I sometimes fish from shore on Friend ave, yet to do more boat fishing though in there..

From shore, Ive been using earthworms, of late,  on a 1/16th jighead tossed out and very slow retrieve, and they get smashed every cast. Sometimes I get a decent fish, sometimes its a throw back. 

or  I toss a bait line out with raw chicken breast and just wait.

There have been fishing competitions held there for boats and kayaks, so , obviously , its a good place to fish. Seems to be better 1-2 hours before a high, and 1-2 hours after. But thats from shore. as said, Ive yet to take the boar in there, Im sure it would be successful.
