stonker trout in the harbour

Rumour has it that some FFF members are spearos. It's time to come out of the closet.

stonker trout in the harbour

Post by BarraBeast » Tue Nov 02, 2010 10:45 am

found a patch of trout and snappers to 5kg's this morning. the fannie bay side of the harbour channel has some rugged bottom, 19m deep at this morning turn of the tide.

i reckon a slow drift with suepr fresh bait with no current is the go. the fish seam to come out from hiding.

what a great harbour we have with this perfect size eating trout at our door step.

cant work out how you can see them to shoot at...that water looks about 1m visibility! Maybe its just the light. Top fish BB

I have often seen trout of that size and bigger whilst diving, only a stones throw (+ a bit) from the shores of Fannie Bay. We have a healthy system out there, just a pity I can't seem to catch the odd one when targeting with hook and line.
