IN this week’s Fishing Journeys we head to Sydney’s northern beaches and meet up with local rock & beach guide, Alex Bellissimo.
Alex is renown for his expertise targeting fish off these popular city beaches and the morning we spent filming was no exception. He’s a passionate angler with a deep understanding of the fish and all the fundamentals which go into catching them off the rocks and beaches.
We kicked things off with a quick session catching beach worms. Alex made it look easy and before too long we had enough worms to chase a few whiting. We moved to another beach and used a variety of spin and side cast gear to land a number of legal fish. Incredibly, all this took place alongside a major surfing carnival. The beach was packed, yet the tides were just right and the fish played ball!
If you’ve ever wanted to increase your success rate off the beach or wanted to learn the skills of beach worming, this week’s episode is must-watch. Better still, if you’re interested in learning more, check out Alex’s website at www.bellissimocharters.com.au and book a trip.
We hope you enjoy this week’s episode!
