In fishing, the only constant is the desire to buy more fishing gear. Everything else is transient. Changing seasons change fish behaviour. The cold winter months and cool water temperatures shut down many of the angling opportunities available in summer. But winter also opens a few windows of opportunity. For me, winter means one thing. Rock fishing for blackfish.
We set out on a bushwalk to explore the upper reaches of Middle Harbour. The plan was simple – access secluded sections of water on foot, throw a few lures about, and see if anything happens.
I spent a weekend fishing a coastal lake on the Mid-North Coast of NSW. An old sit-in-kayak, some lures and soft plastics were all I needed to have a blast.
This Spring has been a fun time to be out in a kayak chasing fish on surface lures.
