It’s time……Tuna Time! The Longtails have arrived with the cooler weather and are already in the harbour. Those little 25gm Gillies Silver Baitfish slugs are the go as per usual. Already we are hearing of decent Spaniards at Lee Point Reefs. Most are being taken on drifted pilchard on the first of the spring movements and averaging the 10-12kg mark.
Do the Jewies ever stop? They just keep on coming from our inshore reefs, mainly at night on fresh squid baits and Gulp 6.5″ Nemesis in colour Pink Shine.
Barras? A little quieter given the water temps are down but you will still find em up on the harbour flats in the warmth of the shallows. Rapala Flat Raps, Classic Just Unders, Reidys Hellraisers and 14a Bombers will do the trick. I always carry a Gulp 4″ Swimming Mullet to be sure I cover all bases!
