Peregian Beach
« on: Tue 2 Jan 11:37 2018 »

Here is the first of a couple of surf fishing videos targeting swallowtail dart over the Christmas break. This was Max's first attempt at surf fishing and the location was Peregian Beach. We finished with about 30 legal fish and released them all. Dart are a great sportfish on light line, and one that I have an affinity for as I did my PhD on them which included tagging over 4,500 and examined their age/growth, diet etc.

The secret bait on this occasion was the servo prawn. I am not sure what particular year the packet I bought was originally caught, but I think it might have been 2010 or 2011.

    All that freezer burn really helps with the bite rate.

    As everyone always tells us ,Fresh is best. You cant catch fish with old servo bait. It has to be fresh as possible  ;D

    Just thinking is kind of ironic that the same thing that stopped you taking better baits there from home like live beach worms or yabbies ect is the same thing that you got the dart on the humble old freezer burnt servo prawn. The whole white spot thing has thrown a spanner into most of the first night of a trip surf fishing fresh live bait options. I used to be able to pump yabbies or pick up live worms on my way home from work Friday arvo before shooting off and getting to where I wanted to fish and could drive on the beach North or South of "the zone" then work my way up the food chain n get a feed along the way. It's painfull now as the good shops that sell worms are normaly closed n the tide is also usualy half or more in so pumping yabbies or trying to pull worms (I'm a hopeless work in progress) in the dark goes out the window too by the time I get close to where I want to fish. Which wastes the first night unless I too use freezer stuff from a servo that's still open when I get there which is possible up at noosa but down south as well as loosing an hour going across the boarder the small towns near the better beaches most stuff is closed.
    In your experience Daryl is the risk real that they are advertising that it can travel from prawns to worms n yabbies ect or is it a knee jerk reaction and going to the exstream to say that this is true but unlikely.
    Looking forward to the next trip

    Yeah Beach Bum, the risk is real unfortunately. Fingers crossed and the movement prohibition will be lifted in a year.

    Here is the second installment, with some bigger fish than the first - up to 40cm. I don't fish for dart much these days, but these couple of short excursions certainly took me back to when I did. Servo prawns did the trick again.

    Thanks Daryl great videos n hopefully it's only a year or so more for the restrictions. I'm happy to abide by the rules in place if it's actualy going to be of benefit to Rec fishing n the pros as well farming prawns n pulling worms ect, I'll just have to take Friday's off work or have a few drinks the first night on future trips.
    Looking forward to the next trip

    Young Max has certainly got that Alvey down pat!
    What rod is that he is using?

    One was a very old Wilson 11 foot 6 and the other was a Wilson 10 foot 6 Heritage. The old one is far and away better for the surf, but when the conditions are good it matters less.

    really love this since i cant fish for another week >:(

    keeps me from looking at my combo and thinking of going in 40 degree heat
    Of course I talk to my self while fishing.. sometimes I need expert advice!

    On land line is a inanimate object. Under water it has a life of its own.
