Lets look at some of the surprisingly good fishing that canbefoundinsuburbanDarwin for the land-based angler and what you need to get among the locations. Not only can fishing from the shore be a productive approach, theres a certain amount of satisfaction to landing a good fish off the beach or rocks. A good rule of thumb is that one good fish on foot is worth five on a boat, or at least thats what boatless fishos tend to claim! Another advantage is the ease of a quick land-based trip no launching or washing down, just grab a handful of lures or some hooks and sinkers and head off to your chosen spot. You can even be quite mobile if equipped with a backpack and a light spinning rod, and prospect along a likelylooking piece of coastline. If youre planning on doing any wading or rock-hopping in the pursuit of fish, some sturdy footwear is a must. Wearing the traditional safety thongs is a recipe for disaster on slippery rocks particularly on a dropping tide when a good coating of water is added to the equa tion. The best choice is a pair of wetsuit-style boots. Like anything exposed to salt and sand, a quick spray with a hose after a trip should keep them in good repair. The tides are an important factor in any form of fishing, but even more so when landbased. Dont think that you can only fish around high tide abit of thought will identify a swag of spots that can be fished at different tidal stages. On a making tide, look for points where water pushes up on to reef or flats. Fish will follow the tide up and can be found in surprisingly shallow water as they pursue a feed. If you get a chance have a look at sandy flats at low tide. The ones with the most activity from crabs and other small marine creatures will often fish the best when the tide covers them. As the tide drops look for areas where the run-off is funnelledinto deeperchannelsor over drop-offs. This is where ambush predators will wait for an easy meal. Next week well look at lures and baits that work well from the shore. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l FISHING
