With a windy forecast many anglers are going to be seeking refuge in the rivers or around the bay islands. The wind is not always a bad thing and it can often stir up the water and trigger fish to feed.

The Brisbane River is a great location if the wind has picked up and at the moment there are a lot of jewfish, thread fin salmon and tailor moving around towards the mouth. Jewies and threadfin are being caught fishing the deep drop offs using baits of prawns, pilchards or strips of mullet flesh. Sinking lures like the Jackall Transam, Keitech Fat Impacts or Micro-Jigs will work along the drop offs and have a chance of picking up the odd snapper as bi-catch.

Tailor are showing up on the flats along Fisherman Island and are herding baitfish up against the rocks before attacking them. The size of the tailor has slowly increased over the past few weeks and a 40cm tailor is becoming average. Casting surface lures like the OSP Bent Minnows or Bassday Sugar Pen is an exciting method to catch tailor with constant bust ups. Baits of pilchards or anchovies will also work but you will have to deal with the undersized tailor picking at the bait.

The upper Brisbane River offers numerous spots to wet a line from Savages Crossing to up near Wivenhoe Dam. Bass, yellow belly and catfish are on the chew and will accept a wide range of baits and lures. If your fishing with kids live worms are a great bait as they will work on a host of deferent species and you don’t need to keep twitching them or anything. If you want to try use lures in these areas spinnerbaits are a great choice as they will get deep and are snag resistant. Slow winding spinnerbaits near the bottom or close to structure should see you hooked up to an ‘Aussie Battler’.

Squid are still being found around the shallow rocky and weedy banks on the bay islands. These squid are starting to get some size to them and hood lengths of 30cm are becoming common. Look for clean water, as squid love to live and hunt in the clean water. Cast your jigs into the shallow waters and hop it back to the boat using varying retrieves until you discover which one the squid are responding to that day. Great jigs to start with are Yamashita or Yozuri jigs, as they are consistent performers. Squid will usually hunt in small packs and numerous squid can be caught in quick succession in some areas. If you wan to know more about the different jigs on offer come in and have a chat with one of the guys.
