Easier seas and plenty of species

Dave Gaden | First Published: June 2017   »  Regular Features / Area Report /

Cold morning winds and the water temperature dropping don’t sound very inviting, but for fishers it means that things are about to heat up (hungry fish-wise).

Kevin Gleed | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Far South Coast / Eden /

The autumn weather was very mild and this winter will probably hit overnight, reminding you that you are on the far South Coast. There has been no shortage of visitors in the area, with plenty of caravans travelling along the coast taking advantage of the great weather, and fishing is one of the things on the agenda.

Kevin Gleed | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Far South Coast / Mallacoota /

We’ve had excellent weather over the past month with little to no rain here in Mallacoota. The rain has been to the north and to the south of us, but here on the corner it has been missing us no matter where it comes from.

Stuart Hindson | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Far South Coast / Merimbula /

Selecting the right boat for the job part three

Wayne Kampe | First Published: June 2017   »  Regular Features / Boating /

In the last couple of issues I’ve cast the net pretty wide in regards to selecting the correct fishing craft for the job. Initially I covered vital issues such as freeboard, sea keeping capability, ride quality and fishing room, as these are essential considerations in selecting a just-right rig for most fishing activities an angler might have in mind.

Brent Kirk | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Mid North Coast / South West Rocks /

June on the Mid North Coast usually brings with it some cool, dry and reasonably settled conditions. One thing is for sure though; if you get it right, there is still some red-hot fishing action available.

Paul Lennon | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Mid North Coast / Port Stephens /

Being kind to kingies, use less down rigging

Craig Mcgill | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Sydney / Sydney Harbour /

It was a spectacular finish to the autumn season, thoroughly deserved after a woeful start. Up until March the water was just too warm and the fish didn’t like it. To be more accurate, the local fish didn’t like it, but we saw great tropical ring-ins like rainbow runner, cobia and a couple of varieties of northern trevally as compensation.

Winter sorts the men from the buoys

Johnny Nolan | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Illawarra / Nowra /

Welcome to winter everyone! Cold, windy, and wet – there’s so much to look forward to. Winter can be the make or break season for fishos. It sorts the smart from the not-so-smart and the crazy from the insane. A warm bed, snuggles with your partner and bacon and egg breakfasts seem much more inviting than heading out in cold westerly winds with a wind chill factor in the minuses. Call me soft, I don’t care.

Freshwater due to be best in June

Peter Phelps | First Published: June 2017   »  Regular Features / Area Report /

June marks the start of one of my favourite season to be out on one of the Hunter’s local lakes. The rivers and creeks are under the bass closed season and while fishing for bass in the rivers is not banned, the bag limit is zero. Some anglers prefer not to target them and let them do their business for the future stocks.

Laugh as you land lovely luderick

Jamie Robley | First Published: June 2017   »  Feature Articles / New South Wales /

As we move towards the coldest months, one of the best ways to warm up is to get out on our coastal rock ledges. Rock fishing is much more energetic than sitting in a boat, kayak or on a chair by the riverbank. At this time of year the fishing is great.

Moving on with the seasons

Glen Stewart | First Published: June 2017   »  Regular Features / Area Report /

Seasons come and go. Autumns roll into winters and winters into springs. As fishers we sometimes see and seek the changes, depending on your experience the things you notice will vary. Modern distractions – life, as it were, can cloud or muddy the waters.

Winter means blues and yellows

Anthony Stokman | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / South Coast / Batemans Bay /

If you asked a group of people to put up their hands if they love winter, you’d only get a few hands up. We have a love-hate relationship with winter. Yes, it may be cold. Usually that’s the only reason why hands are down.

Darren Thomas | First Published: June 2017   »  Area Articles / New South Wales / Sydney / Sydney North /

Now that the ocean temps are decreasing, the colder water species are moving in. Our oceans calm with the turning of the East Australian Current, bringing back all manner of species that headed south for the summer. This, my friends, is big fish time.
