Time of year to fish?

Postby FlyFisher » Mon Mar 19, 2018 12:17 am

New to SWFF - just wondering what time of year I can expect to head out to a few marks along the east coast and have a chance at catching something.

My goal for this year is to catch my first bass and first mullet - both on the fly preferably.

Any tips/advice would be appreciated!

Flyfisher, you obviously enjoy a challenge, and I respect you for that. I've been SWFF'ing the east coast for the past 10 years, I'd recommend getting a ST licence and target them from now until April/May. When the water heats up a bit (10c+) move to Bass, Pollack & Mullet. You could always get lucky, but in my experience, targeting Bass on the fly between Jan - March is a bit of a Lottery, and for the die-hards ( I still try every year!)
PM me, I can give you a steer on a few marks if you want?

Tried PMing you but not sure if you got it because I don't think it will let me PM until I've made more posts. Any tips and advice you can PM me with would be greatly appreciated!

If the water is clear there's always a chance of a seatrout if there around
