Hints & Tips
If you’re anything like me, you are lucky enough to regularly find yourself filleting nice eating sized snapper. Surely practice makes every cut perfect then? Yeah, not so much. Every time I think I have filleting dialed, and I might get a few absolutely bang on, there’s always that fish that just throws you, and you end up feeling like Edward Scissorhands on the piss. Here’s a quick vid taken on my phone by my mate Lloyd, after a brilliant morning session on the kayak.

The Lateral Line: EP# 45
Inshore
Milan for years has talked about investing some time into trying to catch snapper in a harbour. That time to be invested by waiting until there is a perfect weather forecast and going as far up the back of a harbour at dead low tide as you could possible go and just see what we can find. The perfect out come would be to find something amazingly “fishy” and then coming up with a plan to fish that area. The boys executed the plan well but bump into a school of snapper and Trevally randomly and end up spending the afternoon trying to catch them on a fly. The boys have only ever been lucky enough to see fish schooling like this in the shallows a handful of times over the years.
The Top 10 Wash Fishing Tips to Help You Catch Big Snapper.

One of the most rewarding fishing styles for me is catching big snapper in front of crashing swell and white water. What’s even more exciting is discovering a new way of fishing, that is only tried by a very small percentage of anglers, that finds fish that have grown to great size in the shelter of water that has often gone pretty much undisturbed by humans. It’s exciting, challenging and keeps me awake at night when I think about the amazing battles that have taken place in areas that normally, I might have previously driven past. What never fails to amaze me, is the size of the fish living in these habitats (even in the Winter months) and in the depth of water which at times is barely knee deep.
