Finally after spending alot of hours on benone, downhill and castle rock beaches, i got me first bass last night at 1.30 on benone beach. Weed was driving me mad all night and just when i thought it was going to be another blank session, i got a bite that nearly took me beachcaster off me tripod, good scrap and beached the fish a few minutes later. Fish measured 47 cm and weighed 3.5 lb :1a:

well done on the bass, have a couple of mates who fish the bass regularly on the north coast beaches, they have had bass in every month so far this year.
almost all on rag
they reckon its simply a matter of being there at the right time of tide and right conditions, otherwise forget it!

Agree Phil. Rag is thee bait on the north coast. If the bass aren't there at least a flatty might be about.

...and the tide and conditions are key too. One beach likes it at low-tide the other is better at high, and they're only a few miles from each other....:huh::fishing::clap:

I spent hours and hours figuring that out LOL:yawn:

is it possible by the time they have hunted around the low tide beach that its nearer high tide before they are are the high tide beach.??

If you're fishing a 12hr stint, that would be your best option. However I don't think they parole the beaches, hanging around until the conditions are right, it's either one area or the other. It's unusual for both areas to be fishing the same on the same day. The bass seem to visit marks independently on those long beaches, instead of feeding up the whole strand. That's what I've noticed over the years.

i see what your saying. i'd have to agree that they dont feed up the whole strand.
thanks for your input

A bit of luck is involved then when fishing the north coast for bass, that they are actually feeding in the area you are fishing.

When i fish it i try to fish 2 hours before low water till 2 hours after high water

does anyone know if bass are caught around this area all year round, or is October the last month of the year as alot of the books say.

I firmly believe they are here all year round. i've caught them in nearly every month going, even in -5deg on christmas night with ice on the rod rings.

i had a 3lb fella last night an hour before high tide. good scrap on my light bass rod.
