Report 26/09/14

There seems to be a mass exodus currently as everyone heads to Fraser Island. Fraser Island is a great holiday destination at this time of year and offers heaps of fishing options for the whole family.

Tailor are definitely the draw card and reports are very promising from anglers returning. Catching tailor is relatively easy and a simple ball sinker and gang hook rig is all you need. Best baits are whole pilchards or strips of bonito flesh. Focus your attention on the inshore gutters and deeper channels, as tailor will use the openings to these as ambush locations. Once the tailor are found you can also try cast metal lures or poppers into the schools and wind like crazy.

If you are fishing with kids the whiting are up there in numbers and great fun on light gear. You don’t need to cast very far and decent whiting are coming from the flats on a high tide. Best baits at the moment seem to be artificial, the Ecogear Isome worms. These worms are becoming the go to bait on whiting and bream in the surf and the good thing is they don’t smell, go off and are a lot easier to catch than the real ones.

Closer to home the mouth of the Brisbane River is producing some great catches of bream, squire flathead and the odd jewfish. Most of these fish are being encountered along the rock wall near Fisherman Island and the drop offs near the old sunken wall near Luggage Point. Baits of mullet gut or white pilchards are great for the bream and flathead but most of the squire and jewfish are falling for deep vibes like the Jackall Transam or soft plastics like the new Keitech Easy shiners in he 5inch size.

The upper reaches of the Brisbane River are also heating up and bass and yellowbelly are coming onto the bite. At the moment they are still relatively deep and during the day deep diving lures like the Imakatsu Dilemma or Jackall Soul Shads are a great choice. Early morning or late afternoon will see surface lures get smashed as the weather heats up. A recent trip saw the Megabass Dog-X prove to be the go too lure with the Tiemco Soft shell Cicada a close second. With the surface lures you will need to cast them as close the structure as possible as the Bass will be using the structure as an ambush location.

Good luck and tight lines Matt.
