Report 5/6/15

Reports from Moreton Bay and out wider have dominated this week as many anglers took advantage of the great weather during the week and wet a line.

Snapper and Jewfish are still keeping anglers happy with the inner bay islands and the port of Brisbane being the most productive regions. If fishing around the bay islands try focus on the slightly deeper reefs and drop offs in the 20-30ft range. Soft plastics like the Z-man Streak-Z, Westin Mega-Teeze and larger Keitech are stand outs for jew and larger snapper. Baits of squid or pilchards are the most popular and will get eagerly eaten, the only drama is that smaller fish love bait too and you will have to pick your way through them to get your keepers.

The port of Brisbane is also producing some good fish with the sunken wall and drop offs near the mouth of Boggy Creek being a great start to look for bream, jew and the odd threadfin salmon. Baits of prawns or white pilchards are the go to for the bream but most jew and threadies are being caught on either live mullet or heavy vibration baits like the 20g Jackall Transams.

Flathead have also moved into Boggy Creek in good numbers at the moment and are responding well to plastics hopped down drop offs or small hard bodies trolled around the 4-6ft mark.

Tailor have well and truly settled in to the beaches off Moreton, North and South Stradbroke Islands. If you are heading away for the long weekend take a few gang hooks and a bag of pilchards as they are very thick in places. Focus on the inshore gutters and with the moon phase at the moment it might be worth fishing into the night.

If you cant get to the islands the Gold Coast Seaway is your next best bet and the same baits well work. Take a few surface lures as there have been a few trevally and small kingfish mixing it up with the tailor so you never know what you will hook.

In the freshwater bass are still showing up and I have found slow rolling small crank baits to be deadly. Upper reaches of the Brisbane River near Fernvale have been fairly consistent. Baits of freshwater worms or thawed prawns will also work. Im loving the colder weather as it keeps the catfish at bay and allows the bass a little more time to find the lure or bait.
