How to rig squid strips

MOST anglers I have met over the years know that whole squid is a great bait for mulloway, however very few realise that you will catch just as many (sometimes more) fish by stripping large torpedo squid. The beauty of using strips is that you will catch mulloway from 2-42kg using this method, whereas if you rig squid whole and …

Freshwater fix from a quick flick

Monduran Dam Recently I was lucky enough to head to Monduran Dam with my mate Jackson for a much-anticipated barra fish. This dam is huge and upon arrival we met up with one of …

Time to hit shallow reefs off Double Island

I will try to do a few trips chasing mackerel, snapper, tasty grass sweetlip, pearl and moses perch and estuary cod. At this time of year there should be plenty of large-mouth nannygai around.

Targeting whiting on lures

Alternatively, try an assist rigging system with a fine piece of fluorocarbon attached to the eye of the jig head and either a trailing small single hook or treble positioned near the tail of the plastic. Small surface lures such as poppers and stickbaits no longer than 60mm are great fun to use on whiting in shallow water of a …

Current dictating offshore options

On a little 2m rise nearby there was a school of fish sitting vertically about 4m high over the east side of a ridge. A floated bait on an 8 ball sinker nailed good midsized snapper and all within less than a kilometre. Another kilometre away we placed the boat to drift along a little valley between two pinnacles.
