Report 10/10/14

It looks like it's going to be a great weekend for the boaties and shore anglers alike, light winds and reasonable tides are forecasted and it's a great option to get out there and get hooked into a few fish.

The Sea Way down the Gold Coast is producing some really good fish at the moment and there have been some mixed bags of Jew Fish, Kingies, Tailor and bream being reported. The Sea Way is a very popular destination for both boat and shore anglers as there are a host of fishing spots available and the quality of the fish down there can be very good at times. Most of the kings and Jew and being caught near the Pipeline using either live baits or lures. Live Yakkas or Pike are favoured by both. Lures of choice down there would be the Jackall Transam, heavily weighted Nories Spoon tails or micro-jigs. You will need to be prepared to loose a bit of gear if fishing here as the pipeline is home to some big fish and they know how to use it to cut you off.

The bread and butter fish like bream, flathead and whiting are all being caught reasonably close to the rock walls. Baits of Foul gut, prawns, sand worms or white pilchards will all work. If you have kids try down sizing your hooks and sinkers and they will remain entertained for hours catching a host of brightly coloured reef fish found close to the rocks that line the Sea Way.

Mud crabs are on the march at the moment and plenty of people are making the most of it. This warm weather we have had over the past few weeks has seemed to have brought them out of hiding. The mouth of the Logan, Albert and upper Brisbane River seem to be the current hot spots. Baits of whole mullet and a longer drop time will see better catches. Try focus around outflows or creek mouths for higher concentrations.

in the freshwater the bass are beginning to fire in the upper Brisbane River. Reports of good sessions are filtering in with surface lures being a common feature. Walk the dog style lures are perfect for the upper Brisbane as they mimic a host of different food options for the bass from lizards to garfish. Baits of live worms, shrimp or prawns will work but the catfish are also warming up and can be frustrating at times.

You will still need to be able to cast as close to the structure as possible and the use of a canoe or Kayak will help you a lot. If bank fishing don't forget to work the bank your standing on, some of my best bass have come pitching a lure a few feet either side of where I'm standing.

Good luck out there and hope you get hooked into a big one.
