Hey there I've recently started fishing more offshore mainly targeting snapper, without much success. I have mainly been fishing Shellharbour around bass point. Any handy tips would be greatly appreciated. :gu:
Regards
Ricky

Stay clear of the Tigers!!

Hi cardo, I've probably fished there a handful of times over the last couple of years with not much luck. If you crack the code let me know! I'm sure some of the more successful lads will give you a few tips.

Those Bass Point Tigers only have a liking for "butts" if you get my drift Andrew. :wink:

BTW, the Schnitzel was very tasty at the meeting last night... thought I would let you know. :grin:

Hi Cardo, I have caught Snapper at Bass Point anywhere North East off the big jetty on squid or whole pilchard.
Years ago in the late 1980's in a boat at Easter time the south swell was up so fished there to get out of it & caught 2 12lb Snapper & lost one the same size. :lek: Over 60cm in length on whole floating fresh frozen pilchards. Approx. 100M north & 200M east away from the jetty. I have caught some smaller ones in my yak too.
When using squid bait I just drift the bottom with a light weighted paternoster rig. Using a snapper sinker.
Good luck! :grin:
