First attempt :)
As the missus and kids bought me a telescopic rod for my birthday , we tried it out yesterday off Largs Bay jetty
The kids had the crab nets out and I sat patiently with my rod .............
I foul hooked a blue swimmer crab in its leg and the kids caught diddly squat
Not even a decent bite, mind you no-one else was getting anything either :( I can`t wait to go again though !!!!!
Any tips to improve my chances??? I just used cockles and wondered if anything else is worth a punt??
Have a look at a forum called strike and hook mate....plenty of fishos on there all wiling to offer some help and advice.....
I aint no master....but a guy i work with always tells me big hooks wnt catch big fish...soemtimes you have to scale you hook size to temp the lil beggars....
I use Squid, cockles, prawns and sometimes woms i aintt oo fussed as long as i can catch summat...but the last few times lil Seb has caught more than me...lol
Tyke is tha man to speak to as he has been at it ( Fishing tha is ) more than most guys on here.
we never catch anything more than a cold whenever we go, but it is such good fun and quite addictive!
Squid is the go - but cut into slivers.
Time of day and tide play a big part in catching fish.
Wonder why idiots like me go out at 4.00am??
Talk to your local tackle shop as well as Strike & Hook.
I'm off Snooking tomorrow - from Pt Noarlunga Jetty and the rocks. (Too rough for the tub). Snook are huge fun to catch - like baby Barracudas.
Just told someone else the technique and spot (shh) .:)
More than welcome if you have the day off?

Whats one of those????
Thanks for the offer though Tyke, been out on someone elses boat last year , just off Glenelg and caught about 10 snapper, all under size , so went back in , and we trolled for snook on the way back and caught 2 , they are good fun though ;)
Had fun on the jetty. Tried Moana beach first but no takers and the weed was annoying!
Dropped a nice sized Snook just as I was pulling him up
Using a Sluck Whitebait lure.
Lots of small Salmon,only one keeper and a couple of Tommies.Used cubed salted pilchard.
Am thinking of going down jetty or off beach early friday morning.....got day off work...
Gonna get meself one of those lure things me thinks.....
