    Whitebaiting!

    anyone doing any good yet?
    decent swell rolling in here so I don't think I will be doing any here this weekend!
    has been a bit slow here so far on the days I have been out , the odd bit here and there but no big runs as of yet.
    hoping it might turn on next month!

    I went out a couple times when last home.
    Caught enough for a couple feeds that were devoured straight away.
    Have been asking contacts everyday while I have been at work and it is by all accounts, still quiet.

    We have a bit much snow around in the hills and water temp might be the reason it is slow. The next big tides might start it off.
    Have from the start of October till the end of the season off so I am hoping it shows up then.

    so you reckon once the water warms up then the bait start rolling in a bit better?
    bloody hell that's a decent bit of time off , perfect timing for a number of days on the water chasing those elusive little buggers!

    Good to know. Whitebaiters that do well are cagey at the best of times.

    I know bugger all stands are catching.

    I am no expert but always catch better when I can't see snow in the front country.

    Apart from last year I never used to bother fishing until october or I heard there was a bit around anyway.
    When and if it is going to run it will run even if in flood.
    Had some of my biggest catches in shitty weather and river in fresh.

    Looking at the extended forecast it doesn't look good for a while.

    I might time it right with my time home for once.
    Need the nor west rain to warm the place up tho.

    Hunting should be good to get the freezer full at least.

    Na. Not back till the 6th. 6 weeks off tho

    Rivers will be in flood going by the forecast anyway.

    Leave it till the following if weather is good. I have messaged heaps of people and there is bugger all happening on the rivers I fish. Kilo here and there and that's it.
    This fresh coming thru could help they reckon.
