1/24/12 January Shanty Report

I can't believe how fast this winter is flying by, already late January. Fishing has been consistently fair for me on Walker bay although I have had to move my permie a half a dozen times to stay on fish. I have been concentrating my efforts between 4:00 and 6:00 pm and an average evening consists of 2 to 5 fish per person with half of those being between 20" and 25". Between 'eyes, Pike, Perch and 'Pout, the fishing really hasn't slowed too much yet.
                         Once and a while you have to do the old catch and release into grease!
There is at least 14" to 18" everywhere I have checked. I like humps that top out at 25'-30' for eaters but I like shallower 12'-20' flats near a drop-off for bigger fish.
