Around the Bay – 8-10-19

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle WITH almost perfect weather over the school holidays we had plenty of reports from those able to fish especially over the last week. The reports have been good from both land, the jetties and boats but the surf has

Around the Bay – 01-10-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle A LOT of people we sell fishing licences to will complain about the need to pay to fish and that’s a whole story in itself, but often these same people complain about bag limits and size restrictions. Whether you

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle TRAGICALLY there has been another person washed/fallen off the ledge at Punch Bowl and many of the comments I am hearing, or reading, are based around the same thing: let’s take the easy way out and penalise those who

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle THE Fishing Festival is on this Saturday and if you want to know what’s on, head to the San Remo Traders Facebook page at where the program for Saturday is listed. Don’t forget, regardless of the weather, the

Around the Bay – 3-9-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle THE first good days in quite a while and there were plenty taking advantage either giving the boat a run for the first time in a few months or just wandering down to the jetties and beaches. There is

Around the Bay – 27-8-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle NOT a lot happening at the moment, but you would think it won’t be long and the reports will start coming in regularly. Once the weather breaks, the sun comes out and the very cold wind warms up, more

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle IF you were lucky enough to have the first week of the holidays off, you got the best of the weather especially late in the week and into the weekend. The fishing wasn’t too bad either and fishing from

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle I SHOULDN’T have said anything about the weather last week because this weekend was totally opposite to what we have had. The weekend was very ordinary and the week before it perfect which would have been handy this week

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle AGAIN, the weather pattern suited those who are very busy during the week and only able to fish on the weekends. Apart from the fog on Sunday, which seemed to be very local to San Remo/Newhaven the winds were

Around the Bay – 18-6-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle FOR those who work all week the weather has been turning it on lately with the weekends being the pick of the fishing days and last weekend was another. These are the perfect days that we see regularly over

Around the Bay – 12-6-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle WEATHER conditions are something, unfortunately, we have no control over because if we did, we would order much better conditions on weekends. Again, this weekend it was all over the place and while the sun was out, there was

Around the Bay – 4-6-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle OFFICIALLY, the start of winter was on Saturday but the weather over the last couple of weeks has given us a taste of what’s to come in the next couple of months. It’s windy, cold and the days are

Around the Bay – 21-5-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle IF you could order the weather it would have been difficult to get any better than what we have had for the last week. Cool yes, there was some long periods of sunshine, but it was the wind or
