Rat pack

Very prevalent this year are juvenile bass in the 30-40cm bracket, according to scaling data most were spawned in 2012 making the majority around five years old for this year class.  Only time will tell of course but early signs point to a decent year class.

Offshore Hunt Begins….

image

I wouldn’t call myself a “Hardcore” Kayaker but I do like to get out on it when conditions come right, especially this time of year when most of the bass population prefer the deeper cooler water offshore that doesn’t have the erratic temperature changes that they encounter inshore with the comings, & goings of the …[ read more ]

When conditions dictate along an estuary between May – mid July, you’ll stand a good chance of spotting a few bass rooting through bladder wrack, around boulders, etc, in search of shore crab, mostly in the sheltered, quieter regions of the system. You will have to put in the time, without doubt, but with stealth, …[ read more ]
