Planning a gummy trip. Rainfall put them off?

Postby STriplett1997 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 10:37 pm

Was hoping to get away from the 4th-6th targeting gummies land based with the full moon approaching. Does medium rainfall play a role with putting the gummies off the chew? Usually murky water isn't that great for fishing, always wondered about this so thought I'd ask the pros. Any comments related appreciated!

Cheers :water:

Boaties do ok as they hide under the boats to stay out of the rain. ;-)

Gummies don't care about murky water as they feed by smell, and they do well feeding off crabs in the muddy water out of Lang lang.

If any thing that affects them it may be moonlight at night, not sure about barometer readings which is what often accompanies rain and storms in the way it affects fishing. Not the actual rainfall itself

I agree. They hate getting wet. With water so cold, rain is the last thing they would like to see.
