    Long time no see.
    Dont pretend to be an expert, but we fish most Sunday's at Somerset.
    First the redclaw, haven't had much luck during the day, but have got a good feed of them with a soak overnight.Try down near the cattleyards, Close the the standing timber. Always got a good haul from there.
    Depth about 3 to 4 metres. Bait in pots, sweet potato,watermelon ,rockmelon, and sunlight soap.Being Australia Day weekend, be prepared for it to be busy. We launch at Kirkleagh. 3 lane ramp, plenty of parking,but she can be a bitch in prevailing wind.
    Havent used bait for ages, but can't beat live shrimp.
    Throw a shrimp pot out overnight with sunlight soap, fish frames or raw chicken wings.Depth about 1 to 2 metres, amongst the weed.
    One of the best thing about Somerset is, 5 minutes after getting home the boat is in the garage, and I am on the piss. No flushing of motors, or washing down the trailer.
    One note of caution, the coppers have been there in force last weekend. ( About Fing time.
    Have a ball mate, and tell us how you went .

    Sorry Mate.
    Forgot to mention this.
    If you want a few questions answered from an expert, call in and see Robby at his shop, Somerset Fishing Tackle, located near the toilets at Kirklleagh.
