Fun With Salmon !


Recommended Posts

Headed up the coast this morning with Lizard_1 and dad hoping for some bonito or kingy action off the rocks well it didnt happened and we moved to into a corner of a beach which was full of mullet and some predators..through out some pillies and came up with the goods..well i didnt but ther other where..My tactics where lures but to no avail..did hook up to a rather large long tom i think..

Pic does not do this fish justice was very well fed and long..

Thanks Trouble, hope Sambo would show up at Maroubra Beach some day...

I was using size8 rod & 20lb string + size 4 hook with running sinker rig, no luck so far apart from a 0.5kg bream (about 2 mo ago)

had not even a single bite ever since...

would be great to have some tips on beach/rock fishing in terms of Bait, Rig, timing and spot....

thanks in adv.
