Re: Gunnas wind

A NNW moderate is forecast for sat morning. Wondering g whether its worth going in this wind. Been a while since went so can't remember winds last time You might be ok but it's a decent crosswind.

Re: In case you havent heard yet

Hey guys.

I'd like to offer a guided service to land based fishing at Gunnamatta.

Cast at the water. Reel it back in.

That'll be $400 each please.

Pick me up on the way and I'll have a long black no sugar.

Re: New Landbased Spots for Spring

This is probably going to be an unpopular opinion but rock fishing really isn't that dangerous unless you're completely unaware of what it is you're getting yourself into. I've taken my 11yo stepson rock fishing dozens of times and the risk is only really as bad as you want to make it. There are an ...
