Lang Lang Beach. 28/07/2017

Postby Whiskers » Fri Jul 28, 2017 8:23 pm

There was a window of opportunity today with the forecast of the high winds we've been having easing off from mid afternoon.
Couple this up with a high tide due just before 6.00 pm and it was an ideal time to try for some gummys.

It seemed as if a few other folk saw the same opportunity. There were a lot of rods out today.

Nothing for me today but a young guy I've met a few times down there was giving it a crack. He has never caught a gummy despite putting in twenty or more trips in the last couple of months or so, until today.

He had two today, the first fish just legal size and then ten minutes later, a thumper measuring 120 cm.

It was terrific to see him catch them. He was literally doing happy dances on the beach.

Would it be worth to give it a crack tommorow night at 6:23 high tide? But strong winds (34km)?

It's a good tide and at an optimum time, but (for me personally) fishing with a 30 to 40 kmh wind into my face ain't gonna happen. It's just misery but good luck if try it.

Look for places where the wind will be offshore perhaps, it'll be a lot less uncomfortable although it will still be raining.

Back to Lang Lang tonight for another crack.(31/07/2017)

Conditions were perfect, just a very light south westerly and high tide just after 7.30 pm.

Two smallish gummys, a couple of bruiser size eagle rays and a steady stream of beardies. I was surprised to see so many there. They weren't big, most were about half a kg each. Amazing how they can scoff down a gummy bait!

packed up about 9.15 pm. The temperature was dropping like a stone.

G'day,

Thinking about giving Lang Lang a go tonight. Incoming tide starts around 7:30pm, believe it's a new moon too. Thoughts? Any pointers?

I've only just logged on so it's probably too late to make a post that will help you.

I was there today. High tide was at 2.00 pm.

The water is still very murky from the rain last week. The Lang Lang River is very high and a lot of silty run-off is pouring into the bay.
At half flood tide the water quality isn't too bad but as the tide approaches the high it is pushing the Lang Lang River flood water right into the beach. Not only is the flood water very murky but there's a heck of a lot of weed too. Fishing there is a bit of a pain right now.

The only fish caught today were a few small salmon (but better than a doughnut).
