Go­ing’s good in the Firth

Eastern Courier - - OUT & ABOUT -

The Firth of Thames has really started to fire up, with big work-ups, heaps of ka­hawai and plenty of large snap­per for us to get our hands on.

Lots of an­glers are com­ing back from their fish­ing ex­pe­di­tions with a happy grin on their faces and a full chilly­bin.

The Happy Jacks are hold­ing nice fish, quite a few of them up to 20lb!

These fish can be found in less than 20 me­ters in this area, but you will need some heav­ier line and a nice big bait, or heavy slow jig, to land these fan­tas­tic fish.

If you don’t want to travel too far, why not check out Parks Point, which has also started to pro­duce some fan­tas­tic eat­ing fish.

You can find ka­hawai, snap­per and the odd le­gal king­fish to take home for the din­ner ta­ble.

The top baits at the mo­ment are mul­let, mack­erel and squid.

So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
