Spring has arrived and with the weather warming up it was time to dust off the kayak and chase one of my favourite fish, the estuary perch.
Australia’s East Coast of NSW is home to countless bass rivers just waiting to be explored by kayak.
Anticipation was high as we began our early morning paddle up a tributary of the mighty Hawkesbury River. It was still and the water reflected the beauty of the surrounding Australian landscape.
I had an enjoyable morning chasing whiting with surface lures. My fishing buddy Greg and I were on the water at first light. The tide was high and the water warm. Conditions looked good.
