Hi all New to the Hamilton area for work for a few months . Keen to do some fishing land based flicking lures can anyone point me in the right direction what area is producing fish ? Mainly would like to target flathead , bream , jacks or a Jew . Cheers
Today was meant to be some amazing GT fishing but unfortunately my 8 month old Yamaha 4stroke had other ideas and I was forced to take my mexican (NSW) visitors fishing landbased. We decided to chase some jacks with an arvo storm looming, and although it wasnt red hot I was happy to nail my PB by 9cm. I stalked up to my favorite snag and landed my lure right in the edge of the drop off and had a huge swirl on my Nories wakebait within seconds and a more commited stike just seconds later. After a long nerve racking tussle I managed to clear the jack of danger on my 2500 stradic with 8lb braid and 12lb leader to guide it into the net. Stoked to hit 63cm landbased! My dad managed a solid fish of about 40cm on a plastic also which was a pb. Overall a good result considering the lack of boat. Hopefully be back on the water tomorrow!
I saw these little cuties in the Brunswick River last weekend. There were 3 of them chilling in about 1m of water only about 100m from the pub. They were only little but nice to see. It made me think that the Brunswick River must have a healthy Jack population. I also sat on a bank up the way and watched the tide come in... the only thing was that the water was dropping? I really checked that it was an incoming tide and we watched some rocks appear that were previously under water. Strange.
