Small 'shoalie' Snapper

February has been a shocker weather wise. Wind and big seas have turned our local water brown which has pretty much killed off the chance of catching any good fish from the beach. Small Tope sharks are about in big numbers at the moment but at least the paddle crabs are taking a break.
Surfcasters further up the coast have been doing a bitĀ  better with some good catches of small pan-sized snapperĀ  and monster kingfish being reported. I managed two small snapper this month, my first for this season. No gurnard as yet but then conditions have been very anti-gurnard so that’s no surprise. Hopefully March will produce some settled weather and better fishing.
