Yea, that's really sad. They jetty is really a nice place to fish but they have to close it. You can still fish along the breakwaters except the dragon teeth gate stretch, but snagging rate is pretty high. Also the area near the slipway should be fishable as well, don't see any no fishing signs there yet. :shiftyeyes:

This part of Labrador used to be a navy base, the slipway is for them to launch the assault boats and I guess those buoys are for mooring the boats. You can cast between the buoys but you may have trouble steering a big fish away from the ropes/chains beneath.

Hi Peace,

Any tips on how to avoid snagging on those seaweeds?
Last time I went there I got snagged many times. :shocked: Then I used floats, but they too got entangled in the weeds. :cry:
Also which rigs to use in this case?
Everything is possible... The impossible just takes longer...
My Weapons:
  • Highland Seahawk Graphite HLD902HS rod (9 feet, Heavy, 18-35 lb)
  • Haibao C6 Reel 40F (Ball Bearings: 6, Built-in LED)
  • Seahawk Pro-Line 25 lb Mono Line 0.32 mm diameter

The problem lies with the distance you casted and the rate at which you retrieve back the line. You need to cast past the seaweed and make sure your sinker is heavy enough to hold the rig in its place or waves and wind will push it back towards the seaweed. When retrieving back, tip the rod high and crank as fast as you can without stopping.
