The week started out well with some awesome weather and many anglers taking advantage of the prime conditions.

In the bay the inner bay islands are producing squire around the 40cm mark. You can target these squire either on lures or bait. If bait is your scene try small baits of squid, pilchard or large prawns. The only drama with bait is there will be a bit of bi-catch of unwanted fish like undersized squire, grinners and other small reef dwellers. This is not a bad thing if fishing with kids though and the islands are great for keeping them entertained. Lures are still a really fun way to target fish around the islands, soft plastics like the Keitech 3 inch Shiners or Z-man 2.5 inch Grubz are great starting plastics and many fish will jump on them. Try work them near the drop offs and reef edges for better success.

With the wind picking up it might pay to stay in close if you want to head out and the mouth of the Brisbane River is a great option and there are some quality fish being caught there. Reports of large jewfish and decent snapper are keeping anglers going back. Lures like the Jackall Transams and Nories Spoon Tails are doing the damage on the Jewfish. Most of the larger fish are coming from near the numerous pontoons or mooching behind beacons seeking refuge from the current. Baits of whole squid or strips of mullet flesh will also work. If you want to try catch one of the elusive meter plus monsters a few have been caught during night sessions using legal Tailor as live baits.

In the freshwater the bass are still feeding even though the temperatures have started to drop below 10C. In the river spinner baits or soft plastics rigged on small jig spinners are more consistent than any other style at the moment. Focus on the deeper stretches of the river in order to find more active bass.

In the dams Maroon and Wivenhoe seem to be fishing fairly well are the moment. Maroon dam is still fishing well around the edge and jerk baits like the Daiwa Double Clutch of Imakatsu Dilemma 60 are doing the damage, allow lots of pauses in the retrieve to try trigger a bass to smash it.

Wivenhoe is a little different and the bass are schooling up near Billy’s Bay and off the points near Logan’s Inlet, this is very convenient for kayak and boat anglers. Try trolling deep diving lures like the Smak Golden Child or Brolga or casting blades like the Ecogear ZX40s into the schools and hop them back towards you for best results.

Good Luck and hope everyone can get out of the wind this weekend and wet a line.
