Town Hall MAybe this weekend?

Post by blowski » Fri Nov 16, 2018 10:47 am

Hey Guys thinking of heading out to town hall in the tinny this weekend as the tides are neap.
Anyone have a rough idea on where I should anchor up?
Imagine a pick anchor will be fine for a tinny? How deep is it around there? any tips for fish

Couple of areas to start with off the mobile app navonics charts 8) Depths can exceed 20m through the channel but look for lumps or ledges in 18-12ish or sometimes shallower at night. Go early and sound around a bit 1st to locate the fish then drop anchor well up and hang back with room to spare for the baits to drift back to them.

(This bit sounds waaay easier than it is, it can sometimes be a bit tricky in the wind but it's nothing like trying to anchor over a wreck though. .. trust me)

Also you could look it up in the latest fishfinder mag or google it for a full colour structure 3D chart then just choose a few marks off it for you to try based off whichever way the tide is running over the ridges the cordinates are on it too. Failing that tactic pull up over towards (but not on top of) someone who is going well. I'm sure you wont be the only one out there. Once happy with the chosen mark then drop down a few live mullet or even better.... a live squid on single paternoster rig with your 80lb braid overhead rig and hold on to your hat :catch:

Other proven jewie baits include freshly caught bl..dy CATF1SH fillet, tuna and fresh big eating quality prawns which if kept well can then also go OK as prawn sartees on the barbie as a backup plan afterwards too. :drinking8:

would need a lot of lead to fish it this weekend, better off heading up the arms and fishing the draining gutters getting locked in a hole maybe up middle and live baiting.
