Got out of the estuary this evening and "out the front" to try for a snap, the wee trawlers have been goin up and down the beach for a few weeks now.
It is still too early really, water temps are -1deg on this time last year.....but I just want to catch a snapper
Weather was pretty poor for a start...infact I need my bloody head read going 4km offshore in a 10footer in those conditions,thankfully it eased as I thought it would.
I had the hell burly trail out, had dropped a long line, and dropped a net, and running two rods one with a flasher ledger rig and one as a strayline.
End result for a couple of hours fishing, ledger rig one big gurnard, stray line one spiky dog, long line one spiky dog, net one small monk fish.
Bit disappointing but was what I was expecting.....but you dont know if you dont try.
Think I will stick to the estuary for a month or so till water temps come up.
