Sail-World.com : Victoria lashed by severe winds
Victoria lashed by severe winds


'I think fishing can be given a miss today.'    Jarrod Day

It seems that we Victorian’s are certainly coping the brunt of the bad weather at the moment. Going back the best part of tens years, I can’t remember a time where we were dealt a hand with so much wind. The rain we can deal with but the wind, oh my. Even as I type this editorial, tonight’s forecast is of an expected 120km/h winds which will continue on until the coming weekend. Even then, Saturday and Sunday are still in the 15kt category allowing only those with large trailer boats the chance to get out in search of a red or two.

Those with big boats may still be able to head out. -  Jarrod Day  

On the snapper front, Victoria is about to experience its annual snapper migration. This usually begins around early September but it is during October and November when things really hot up.

Sure South Australia might get the monsters with fish up to 15kg’s a possible catch but for us in the South we get the reds in numbers.

One of the better parts of snapper fishing in Vic is the fact that we can duck out before work to catch our quarry. Sunrise and a high tide is the prime time and it is nothing to catch a dozen or more reds before 7am that is if you’re on the right spot. In saying that, the red carpet is scattered right throughout the Bay and the Port and it is a lot of fun if you’re out soaking a bait.

Arrh, the things to look forward too over the next too months. If I can just add in a little reminder to all you keen snapper fisho’s out there. You only have a week or so left to get all you’re fishing gear back to tip top shape. That’s right, its time to drag it out of the garage, inspect the line guide on rods, replace broken tips and re-spool your reels.

If you leave it too much longer, rod builders will be inundated with a lot of repairs and your rods end up at the bottom of the pile. Same goes for your reels if they require a service, get them to a tackle store now to be sent away other wise you could be facing a two to three week wait.

Having worked in the fishing industry for the past ten years, I see a lot of anglers making the last minute dash to have everything repaired so if you’re not on the ball, you might be a very unhappy angler when the fish go berserk and you’ll only have yourself to blame.

While we are waiting in anticipation for the Victorian snapper fishery to explode, the team at fishing boating world have another fantastic line up to help you on your fishing adventures.

While I batter down the hatches waiting for this wind to pass, I stumbled across a new innovative product which will lead the charge for anglers embarking in saltwater fishing adventures.

Berkley has just released their new versatile lure called the 'Squiddo'. To find out more, check out the product review.

This week Lee Brake talks about the age-old conundrum of 'time and tide' with regards to fishing a mangrove creek over the top of the tide period. In the Northern states, fishing the 'right tide' is imperative if you want good fishing as Lee explains.
High tide or low tide, you decide. -  Jarrod Day  


Back in early July Gary Brown put together an article on 'What different fish have you caught on lures? Part 1. Some of which were while using a surface popper in Vanuatu over a shallow reef I caught a Green Jobfish, then there was the parrot fish while working TT 1oz blades for snapper over a gravel patch off Sydney and what about the cockle on a TT jig head and a Gulp Camo 6 inch sand worm while chasing bream. This week, Gary finished off with Part two and few more unusual catches.
What intresting fish have you caught? -  Jarrod Day  


Down in the Apple Isle, Tasmania, Carl Hyland writes an interesting piece about sharks. As Carl explains, being an Island state and surrounded by cool water, one would be forgiven for thinking Tasmania would be too close to Antarctica to play host too many species of sharks, but if the truth be known, Tassie has one of the most prolific populations of sharks anywhere in the world.
Tassie + Carl Hyland = sharks. -  Jarrod Day   Click Here to view large photo
