new brighton bass

Postby whistleing sands » Thu Jun 01, 2017 3:15 pm

i am putting this up because i keep hearing people saying we have to go to wales to fish for bass ?

i have had good numbers of bass over the years from this area / most are small but all are very feisty and good sport on light gear.
they get bigger as you learn more.
i don't want to go on but a lot of anglers are missing out on some good fishing sessions because they won't change and mix things up.

me and mo fished new brighton this morning 6-7 other anglers out to are left and right that caught nothing fishing too heavy and at to greater distance.

but in another light we were hammered by these beautiful small school bass that kept us very busy for a good 3 hours fishing .
rig / small size 4 hooks either pat rig or running ledger ? but lead needs to be about 1-2 oz to let the rig move / distance 30 - 50 yards
bait / fresh blow lug off the same beach.

this area has produced like this for some years it just shows how healthy are local fishing is and during certain conditions the bigger fish turn up .
for those of you that like catching bass give it a go but fish as light as you can to get the best out of them / hope this will help with anglers that can't get to wales.

Great advice and thanks for sharing what many would covet for themselves!Incidentally a friend took ten off the wall at high water using exactly the same tactics you described and very close in.Light gear close in if they're there you'll get them.

Maybe an idea to have a rod out for something a bit bigger and play around "inside" for those little pocke rockets.

Great bit of sport. Light tackle is the way to go at the moment with the small schoolies.
