Whiting Wisdom

Postby pink nipper » Mon Feb 10, 2014 3:51 pm

Managed to get out for a surface crack at those
tings for a couple of hours this morning and they
eventually showed up to play. :fish:

Tings started slowly with some missed strikes and
smaller fish but as the tide dropped a few larger
models were landed. :fishing:

Both the walkers (Sugarpens) and poppers (Scizz) were
working although other surface lures would have worked
today. !)!

It seems to me now that the phase of the moon is not as
important for surface whiting as many people say, nor is the
time of day. Factors such as tidal movement over flats,
water temperature, wind direction and barometric pressure
seem to play a much larger role in surface whiting wisdom. :think:

Nip. : winky:

What do you reckon are the best areas / conditions?
I have been trying lately with only limited success.
- Are the flats near the mouth better or further up?
- Is the run in or run out better?
- Are you fishing shallow or deep?
Any help would be appreciated.

M8 at this time of the year with the water clarity the way it is you'll get from the mouth right up above Lawrence,I've found the run out for them lately and you must have some sort of wind ripple on the water.
Depth is anywhere from a couple of inches down to 3 or 4 foot

Like scrote said, they're pushing up with the clear water in the richmond too.
I like the run out, that said, I've had a few good sessions on the run in this year too.
I seem to be finding them in about 3-5ft of water
some wind is a must, in glassy conditions I get squat. Had a fish in the southerly this arvo, 10-15kts and got a good feed.

Cheers
