Con­di­tions on the im­prove

Eastern Courier - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Last week­end re­ally shone, with five-knot vari­able winds on Satur­day morn­ing lead­ing to every man and his dog hit­ting the water to make the most of it.

Most of us fishos headed out wide, with the ma­jor­ity of big snap­per landed in the Firth of Thames. Slow jigs and soft baits seemed to be the favoured tac­tic to land­ing th­ese wicked fish, but plenty of peo­ple still had a trusty berley to bring those big snap­per and king­fish into the strike zone!

Spots close in like Mo­tu­ihe Is­land, Sergeants Chan­nel and Parks Point have all been hold­ing nice sized snap­per and of course plenty of ka­hawai for the din­ner ta­ble. With lots of new and ex­cit­ing fish­ing gear on the mar­ket, it’s time to go and talk to the lovely (and fish­ing mad) staff at The Big Fish Bait and Tackle Co, to see what you need for your tackle box!

The best baits are pilchards, mack­erel and use plenty of berley.

So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
