Hello all. I'm hoping someone can give me some fishing tips.
I have only just started fishing, and am pretty much learning as I go.
I've got a 3.8m tinny which I'm still getting the hang of (just worked out the fish finder, sort of).
I have mostly been launching off the beach as seacliffe, with the occasional west beach launch, and once down port river (did take it to the river land once too).
I just have no idea where to go, what I'm aiming at catching and what bate to use.
This weekend I went out off west beach, randomly, stopping when the fish finder told me there were fish. I had squid as bait, my first try with squid. The guy at the boat place said it was just as good as cockles, but cheaper.
We didn't catch a thing! Our timing was out I think. But still nothing.
Any tips for a total newbie, and suggested fishing spots (for someone who avoids deep water) would be great.
I'm pretty much after fish I can smoke or fry.
Sorry I'm waffling now.
Ohhhh yer, any links to anywhere which lists what types of fish are around and where would be great too.
