Report 7/8/15

Post by subeditor » Fri Aug 07, 2015 1:20 pm

With the recent bout of Westery winds pushing through the tailor have really come on the chew. Anglers are reporting catching them fromthe Gold Coast right through the Bribie Island and even further north.
Most anglers are still using the trusty pilchard as bait but many are reducing the size of the sinker for better catch rates and larger fish. The schools off the Gold Coast are concentrated around the Spit and Sand Pumping Jetty as this is where the bait is. Early mornings and a run out tide seems to re a reoccuring trend in their reports.
Boat angers fishing the Sea Way down there are alos reporting catching them on Surface lures and chrome lures.

Fraser reports are starting to dribble through and there are a few being caught already on the southern beaches and the gutters are nice and close to the beach.
There are a few nice spanish mackerel being caught off the beach using legal tailor as bait. The Sliding Bait rigs will allow you to use these lager baits without breaking your rods trying to cast them or having to swim them out with the sharks.

Snapper are also loving the cooler weather and the mouth of the Brisbane River is a great spot to go and try target them. Sinking vibes like the Jackall Transam or soft plastics will work well if you want to give lures a go, work them near the drop offs near the front rock wall or around the numerous boat morings. Baits of cubed pilchards, squid or even whole sea worms are working a treat if you just want to relax and soak a line.

We have had a few good reports from Somerset Dam and Moogerah Dam, Somerset Dam reprots seem to be coming from the near the dam wall in 40ft of water, schools of smaller bass can be found quite easily but most fish are coming of trolling Smak Lures around. A few nice yellowbelly have been caught up in the timbered section on baits of worms and live shrimp.

Moogerah is a little different, the schools are slightly harder to find but guys have been getting good numbers once located. Most of the fish have been falling for small vibes like the new Jackall Mask Gene and tail spinners hopped through the school. If taking kids they will take live baits of worms or shrimp.
