    Adelaide fishing

    If you ask 10 fisherpeople about what works best for them with Bream on plastics you'll more than likely get 10 different answers. If it was too easy there would be no satisfaction in your eventual success. Read and watch as much info as you can handle, but at the end of the day the only way to learn what works for you in any particular location is to get out there and keep casting. Good luck and cast with confidence. Look forward to seeing a post from you of a West Lakes Bream with a SP hanging out of it's gob.

    Landbased Fishing darwin

    Sounds like a great trip mate. Buffalo Creek near Lee Point for Barra. Best fished at low tide. There's a fishermans track that leads back up the creek bank from the carpark, which will take you to a few spots worth a flick. Not a track for the faint hearted. Seen Queenies taken at Nightcliffe jetty and the Cullen Bay ferry jetty. As mentioned the main wharf has a great reputation for fishing. Another option would be to jump on the ferry, 15 minute ride, and fish the Mandorah jetty. Good luck.

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Yeah finding Tommies metro is not as easy it used to be land based. Hickory sawdust is the favourite here when we do.

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Smoked Tommies are fantastic... with a couple of beers... yummo! Cremated Tommies don't look so flash tho! I too have gone away from the wet brine and just sprinkle on salt and brown sugar before hot smoking. I'm not sure what heat source you are using, but in my little metal smoking box using a metho burner they are done in 15 -20 minutes depending on the size of the Tommies. Half the fun is experimenting.

    Freebies at Outer Harbor rocks during the summer on low tides.

    So to finish the topic a couple more pics. A few little surprises in with the worms. Drying before a metho dip. Double bagged ready for the freezer. Cheers

    Yeah the place gets hit pretty hard all the time! Surprised there's any fish at all. Several groups of fishos scooping last night too.

    Thanks bjorn. Could've stayed and scooped the 4 litre limit easily, but this is enough for me and my old back was telling me to go home!

    G'day all, Nearly all my fishing these days is done with lures, but I cannot resist the temptation to go out and scoop up what I see as the prime bait for metro land based fishing... The mighty Bloodworm. Soooo much fun... Out on the rocks in the pitch black on a windy wintery night with a head torch and a net. Last nights conditions were, what I see, as just about prefect for land based collection session. I chose a slightly different spot than in previous years after a little recon the night before. Worked out well as I left after about an hour with plenty of worms, for my needs, and they were still running out in big numbers. Sunset from the night before sussing out a good position. The view last night. The Bloodworms. Cheers.

    Bushy's night

    I didn't go either mate, unfortunately. Pretty sure there were a few regulars from here, and some that used to be regulars, that went... Maybe Bushy has sworn them to silence.

    2018 Fishing goals

    That's some cracking goals kicked Kman! Well done. I didn't set goals as such for 2018, but got addicted to the Flatties during the warmer months and picked up a few PBs on the way ending in this one as a new PB. The usual Bream chasing suffered as a consequence, so no upgrades so far... Best of the year to date. Seriously hoping to upgrade these 3 when I head North later in the year. This is now my goal for 2018.

    One Door Closes. Another Door Opens.

    Good luck with the new job mate. More fishing... That's got to be a good thing!

    Who's fishing over Easter?

    Trying to get out locally as much as possible over the 4 days. This morning I was flicking plastics in the shallows. Tough in the wind, but heaps of fish about. Still finding these guys just not the size I'd like. Best Bream of the morning. Quick pose before release. Happy Easter Hookers... Lines tight.
