Sail-World.com : To fish or to stay home?
To fish or to stay home?

It really doesn’t matter where in the country you reside, we all have to deal with one major upset when it comes to fishing, bad weather.

Most of the angling community really only get one day a week to fish or if your lucky enough, even more. When you’re limited to this scenario, you have the weather to contend with and should your chosen day be blowing 30 knots you really have only one option, to stay at home and think about fishing.

Well, that depends on how desperate you are to dangle a line. Although your local waterway maybe inaccessible by boat, you may have the option of fishing land-based. Alternatively, if you’re as obsessed as some of us are then you might look beyond your local areas and head north, south, east or west should the whether be better in those areas.
These days and with two young ones, my fishing is reduced to at least one full day and if the weather is bad, I look to other parts of the state to explore.

Living in Melbourne, Victoria I still have the options of heading north to the country for some freshwater fishing, west to Portland for some tuna fishing and offshore bottom bouncing or east to Gippsland in search bream, flathead and perch. Regardless of what I do, I have options and can set my fishing opportunities based around what the weather is doing.

Each state of the country is very similar, in which anglers can choose where they want to fish if they are willing to travel the night before. If you have the ability to pack the car and boat a few days before, and then leave the evening before your designated fishing day, you can still get out and dangle a line in a calmer part of your state. In saying that, if you are going to make the trek 5 hours up or down the coast, ensure you do leave at a reasonable hour the night before to get some sleep before fishing the next day. The last thing you need is to have an accident if you’re fatigued.

Although fishing is great fun, it becomes an addiction and where possible, if you can beat the whether, you’ll still get to enjoy a day out doing what you love best, fishing.

The team at fishingboating-world have been battling the whether around the country over the last week but have still put together some great features for your reading pleasure.

Gary Brown has done a bit of travel ling in his time and looks at the difference or should I say, strangest catches he has had on his adventures. On that note, Gary outlines that no matter where you fish in the country or the world, an assortment of soft plastics will keep you covered.

Last week Lee Brake took a look around Eungella Dam, a picturesque impoundment a few hours inland from Mackay, Queensland. Fresh from Eungella's behemoth sooty grunter Lee heads out of the Eungella Range and looks at the crisp, clear streams that run through the Pioneer Valley.

Over in Exmouth, Western Australia winter has set in and Ben Knaggs goes in search of a winter highlight, Spanish mackerel. As the winter dry season sets in and coastal waters cool rapidly, big schools of Spanish mackerel move in close to shore to feed and apparently also to breed. This puts them within easy reach of small of trailerboats, and even land-based anglers in certain areas as Ben explains.

   Jarrod Day  

I head off in search of wide range of species and explore the sea floor. Traditional bottom bouncing is an old age fishing technique that is highly successful and a lot of fun. Bottom fishing is a great way to catch a good feed of fish and worth doing if your looking at gathering some fish for the freezer.
