Tackle Backpack Basics For Shore Fishing Aussie Snapper

June 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 184

Shore Fishing For Snapper in Australia

Australia has an abundance of outstanding beaches for shore fishing. And fishing for snapper is an appealing enough challenge to put on your tackle backpack and get down to the beach right away. But as with any type of fishing, make sure you have the correct snapper fishing tackle with you, and learn the basics of snapper fishing before you go. That way, you will have an enjoyable trip and you will want to do it again.

You May Not Need To Cast Too Far

The great thing about snapper fishing is that large snapper can be found in relatively shallow waters, so you may not have to cast too far to catch a nice fish. This will make things easier when you are just starting out. It is more important to find the troughs and gutters where fish will be feeding than casting long distances.

Best Bait for High Quality Snapper

To catch large, higher quality snapper you should try attracting them with bait like mullet, crab, squid or herring. You may also want to equip your tackle backpack with some artificial plastic bait, which can lure some great fish if your live bait is unsuccessful.

If you're used to catch and release fishing, you will need different hooks for catching snapper. You will also need to learn some new stronger fishing knots, such as uni knots, hook snelling and improved clinch. As with any types of fishing, you will be doing yourself a favour if you learn these knots at home first.

Before you set out, it really is worth learning how to clean and fillet your snapper, and make sure you have the right equipment to do this before you set off on your trip. You don't want to get home to discover that you don't have a sharp enough knife to clean and fillet your tasty catch. That may sound obvious but having a very sharp filleting knife will make all the difference.

More Tackle Backpack Basics

Other things you will want to add to your tackle backpack before you set off include a tides map, snapper sinkers, to avoid spinning, which usually puts the snapper off.

Once you have the additional tackle you need with you for your snapper fishing trip, and you have learned the stronger knotting techniques, you are set to go. But don't let impatience spoil your fun. Advanced planning and preparation will make your snapper fishing trip far more enjoyable and successful.
