Well finally we’ve seen the first drops of the season and it’s got us all pleading that it will keep on coming. Although early days, we’re really looking forward to the cruisy arvos of culvert fishing and the chance to throw some real small stuff around the drains for a barra.
For now, there’s been some real stonkers caught in Shoal Bay lately and I’m talking big numbers of them. The build-up can’t possibly get any hotter than this so it’s no wonder the bigger fish are active in the shallow waters such as The Rock, King and Meckitts Creek. Killalure BarraBaits, Big Bombers, Big B52’s and 6 inch plastics have donged fish way better than the metre mark. 115cm, 119cm, 105cm and plenty more.
Jewfish aren’t lacking either, from Dundee to Cape Hotham including the harbours have been extremely good and it’s good to hear of numbers of juvenile Jew showing up all over the place too.
Keep one eye on the weather and get into it before the rain dulls your plans folks!
