Summer fishing and TIGHTLINED Tournament 2022

Hey folks, the summer was so-so to fantastic depending on who you asked. So-so bassing for me. I spent a handful of weekends fishing out east as well, and landed some monstrous bass there and other interesting catches. Night plugging was weak for me, we had some good early morning trips, and late summer we … Continue reading Summer fishing and TIGHTLINED Tournament 2022

Bottomfishing is also still … Continue reading September Report & Tightlined Slam

Schoolies for Days

Well spring started off with a bang in early April. Some herring moved in and a few (very few) got onto a hot upriver bite in early/mid April. Then it got cold, and wet. Really wet. 2 solid weeks of cold rain pretty much mid April. It’s been a cold spring. Sound familiar? JUST like … Continue reading Schoolies for Days
