Offshore Fishing in Australia with Shaun

I did get out in the surf the weekend before last, and managed a bit of stand-up action in some 1m  swell – only fell out once!

I did manage to get out on Saturday morning – the weather was good for autumn – the sea was flat and comfortable! I also used the anchor for the first time and that worked great.

I was happy to get 3 nice calamari squid in a short time. The largest is 35 cm total mantle length.
I’m still not that game to go too far offshore – about 500m is my limit so far.

This weekend I’ve planned to give it a try in a local river, the Onkaparinga, and maybe flick a few bream lures around.

It can get a bit chilly here in mid winter . The coldest month is July, with a mean 9am temperature of 10.4 Celcius.

The piece of water I was catching dinner from is the Gulf St. Vincent.

If I’m any good, I’ll eventually be able to send you pics of yak-caught King George Whiting, Yellowfin Whiting, leatherjackets, Snook, Garfish, Salmon and Salmon trout, Bream, Tommy Ruff, and (fingers crossed) Snapper -All fantastic sport fish and great on the plate.

BTW, if you live in New Zealand, you may be interested to know that these kayaks are available in your country too >
