Black Rock (BR)

Postby emerger1 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 12:15 pm

G'day. This is my first post. I've been fishing regularly off BR since 1995 when I bought my first boat. I think of myself as No1 prefered method of fishing, a fly fisherman but its a long way to go fly fishing from where I live so had to buy a boat to get my fishing fix by going bay fishing. I do carry a fly rod on board (5wt) as salmon love a fly and sometimes there can be incredible salmon action around BR, Ricketts Point etc. And I reckon they eat well also.
I'm always looking for birds and or swirls of salmon feeding quietly.
The last fishing trips off BR have seen a squid plague. Bagging out in less than an hour. Catch and and release of squid these days letting the little ones go. I think they are everywhere In PPB.
Caught a 4-5kg snapper on Sat morning last 2-3 klm off Ricketts Point. Plenty of pinkies upto 38cm also. Prefered bait, (match the hatch), fresh squid. Squid guts and tentacles chopped up for berley and fresh oozing squid rings for bait.
Went out yesterday arvo, very windy, 7 squid in short order, no pinkies (plastic fishing). Sometimes you get them and sometimes you don't. (1st law of fishing).
Cheers.

Nice first post mate and welcome.
That’s a nice red you caught on sat morning. I usually fish around there for pinkies and most times manage to get a good feed. Haven’t tried there for squid as I have been doing well in other places but like you mentioned they seem to be everywhere. Now that you mentioned it might give it a go down that way. Cheers :thumbsup:
