Nice fish DrewB.

It's more the weather Basti. Gunners is really hard to fish in a NWer.

drewb wrote:Headed down to Gunna Saturday morning with pretty low expectations given my recent history there, but high tide was around sunrise and a northerly wind at least the conditions were in my favor, although there was still 6ft of swell.

Got to the beach about 7 and saw a bait fisho dragging a fish up the beach as I was walking down the dunes so decided to have a couple of casts in the first gutter. Hooked up fourth cast but dropped it in the shore break.

It was quiet for the next hour or so, by that time I was well up the other end of the beach when I found a small patch of fish. Landed 5 and dropped another in the space of about 30 minutes, including 3 fish in 6 casts. The biggest would've been mid 50's and the smallest around 40, so all not bad fish.

Went quiet after that, got back to the car around 9:30. Didn't see another lure fisherman on the beach which was a bit surprising given the conditions.

The Salmon season has been mediocre off the beaches this winter but conditions on Thursday are looking good on the forecast.

I'll probably head down to Phillip Island if the forecast holds up and see if i can score anything at least half way decent.
