Around the Bay 26-11-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle BY the number of boats out on Friday morning it was either an RDO, sicky or maybe just a sign of the ordinary weather we have had of late and people taking advantage of one of those small windows

Around the Bay 19-11-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle ANOTHER week of very unpredictable weather with the conditions not matching forecasts either way and only a handful of chances to head out in the boat. Thankfully there were reasonable conditions at the weekend and between those who were

Around the Bay – 12-11-2019

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle I DON’T think I need to make too much of a mention about the weather and there is really only a couple of words to describe it this week, unfishable, almost two words anyway. For boating, take Tuesday and

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle I have been making mention of the Victorian State Government plastic bag ban over the last few weeks and it came into force as of November 1. It has been great to see over the weekend a lot of

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle THE Melbourne Cup is less than a week away which means this weekend is for many the first long weekend of the fishing/boating season. Not so long ago it was the first long weekend after winter but has been

With Jim’s Bait and Tackle MOST would have read information or seen it on tv regarding the plastic bag ban in Victoria and there is still plenty of confusion around the exact timing of when you have to implement the law with at least

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

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

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

Around the Bay – 9-7-2019

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
