TIGHT LINES & NO LIES Fishing with Hunts Sports of Milford

Love that Winter Fishing!

Our Channel Magazine fishing page is provided by Ian Hunt from Hunts Sports Store – that institution up the
hill from Milford on East Coast Road. Hunts are big into fishing and also supply darts and accessories. ‘Hunty’
is a colourful character who has the answer for all your fishing requirements and he’s sure to have a story or
two as well. Hunts have been part of the local community since 1963.


Well we are truly in winter mode now with all the rain over the last few weeks really pushing the water temps down.

A lot of our locals have been having a great run in close off the Bays from Torbay to Narrow Neck Beach in the late afternoons and fishing into the dark. If you are a diehard strayliner now is the time to get in amongst them. It sometimes pays to toss out a small bait on a 3/0 or 4/0 hook as the Trevally are starting to number up. Don’t forget they are very soft in the mouth, so show some finesse and don’t rip their heads off. There appears to be some sign of the elusive squid. You can normally tell as you get about a three foot run, you strike and then there is nothing, and then another short run. They can be real pain in the backside. I have not been out for a squid fish as yet but, as all the signs are there, I may have to sneak out in the next couple of weeks and I shall keep you informed. Well that’s all there is, there ain't no more news. So,until next month, have a good one. Remember, we've got all the stuff you need at Hunts for your winter fishing. Come on in and have a chat – we can help you catch those big fish in the colder months!
Tight Lines & No Lies,
Hunty & Grenville.
