THE TUBE-N-WORM

The Tube-n-Worm has become one of the most effective pieces of tackle for fishing Joppa Flats. How simple of a rig, but how effective! Just remember, this simple rig can make a mess of your line. We always recommend using a good swivel or two to help prevent bad line twists.

Big Fish Move In

This week has either seen some bigger fish move into the area or bigger fish get more active. A lot of fishermen from the boats telling us while they are catching schoolies they can see the big ones under them and it is frustrating! This past Saturday our own Nick took his friend
