hey arty

hey arty, m8 seeing the river is coming down at the moment the mullaway are going a bit stupid at the mo so wont be hard to get into some fish. Chinamans is the most popular spot, early morning or late arvo 2 nite and you should hook up to some mullas. Red bluff has some good tailor there at the mo around the second and third bay but just be careful of the swell round there. Use either poppers or mullies on a lightly weighted line and should get something. Aslo on the beach at red bluff has been good for mullaway and tailor in the morning an late arvo. If you have any probs m8 just go into the tackle shop and ask deano or wayne and theyll help you out. hope you get a feed m8. tangles

REMEMBER FISH FOR THE FUTURE NOT THE FREEZER!

red bluff to wittecarra

red bluff to wittecarra beach stretch would be a good place to start for tailor and you could give the river mouth a try for mulloway, good luck
cheers ray

Whittecarra

Whittecarra beach in the evenings is great for Mulloway. Toss out a big mullet or a tailor. If you go down to the river in the evenings there is a spot just in front of the shaded rest areas, just before the sand spit. There are a few rocks there, but if you cast out a tailor or mullet slab you could get lucky. I have caught a few nice mulloway there.
If you are chasing tailor, head south of town and turn down the third track to the ocean. There is a hole in the reef that holds some good tailor. However, you need to watch the swell. The ideal time to fish there is from low tide on a rising tide.

There are also some great spts from the cliffs to the south of town. You just need to be careful of the swell.

colin, are you talking on

Tue, 2008-02-26 08:16

colin, are you talking on the ocean side or the river side of the sand spit?

and according to someone on here a few weeks back, there is no sand spit anymore??

 

wittecarra, shark tooth or blueholes are great for tailor.

Hi Wicksey

The ocean side. I am not sure about the sand spit as I haven't been there since October. The spot I am talking about is in front of a small structure on the beach. I think there maybe a picnic table inside it. If you head down before dark you will notice a few rocks just offshore.
I haver also caught some cracking tarwhine there.

Another option is to approach the guy that hires out boats further down river. If he is still operating his service you can get a lift across to the othger side of the river for a nominal fee. He will pick you up later when you want to come back.
Great fishing on that side, but once again you need to be mindful of the swell.
If you need any further info, don't hesitate to ask.
All the best, Colin.

nah

Tue, 2008-02-26 18:31

nah better off down wagoe arty, especially w the water so dirty as it is at the mo. also you have to watch out for the crayboats that usually set pots in pretty close there at frussies. oyster is prob an option but same again w the crayboats and especially that close to the channel. redbluff is pretty good for a balloon at the end of the rocks out the back but just have to watch the swell there thats all. M8 the mullas are going off at the mo at chinamans so easy fishing just get a spot early and cast strait and youll be laughing.
