Finding a fushin spot or area

Post by denis barden » Wed May 12, 2021 5:15 am

Best to find your own
Some of the things to do or look out for
1 Go down ramps and view or ask whats happening-Where,type of bait and tide-Most fishos will advise you
2 Get binos and view where boats are fushin
3 Look for the crappiest car,trailer or boat-They probably a local and should know where they are biting
4 Dont go out fushing and hope to catch differeny types of fush -Be specific for a type
5 If you see a lot of boats moving around dont go to those spots
6 Read the Fishing Forums and go thru the data for specific fish types or specific people
7 Sus out the boats if they are smaller ones you know they will be fishing close
8 Check out what rod and gear boats are carrying -That will tell you what type of fish is around
9 Read Fisheries date on specific types of fish.
10 Go to the fish cleaning tables see what they are cleaning and view scales and frames for specific fish
11 Most Whiting fishing around St Leonards use smaller boats locals are older and carnt handle big ones
12 Use an electric anchor winch helps heaps lookin for new spots
13 Try to fish the week days not week end .Week end brings out the casual long distance boaties ,Locals shy away from week ends or cold morning
14 If you see a boat with a net hanging out of it and its near a whiting spot -dont fish there for whiting -They are probably novices -No need to net Whiting in the bay
15 Load music and constant loud talking shows that the boat isnt a true fisho
