What Fish to Target In April: What’s on the Chew

Jacks also respond to a wide variety of lures and techniques. Casting surface poppers tight and parallel to structure works well, as does casting soft plastics and hard-bodied minnows tight to structure. Trolling hard-bodied minnows along the rock walls and broken reef areas of the rivers also entices plenty of jacks and allows you to cover a lot of quality ground. When …

How to Catch Mulloway

I don’t know why, but I have thrown all different types of hard-bodies and those without rattles seem to work more often. What bait and where to get it? You can’t beat yellowtail yakka and beach worm baits for jewfish. Other baits you can use include mullet, tailor and herring. The big jewfish in the photos were caught on live yakkas and …

Mayhem Catching Pelagics on Surface

Once again the smaller queenfish took little to no interest in my perfectly placed lure, but as I blooped it beyond the frenzy it was engulfed by a queenfish well over a metre in length. I thought to myself, ‘of course, I manage to hook two of the most brutal fish possible on the smallest, weakest popper while trying to catch …

Good Fishing on the Gold Coast

These fish can be a bit tedious to clean but are beautiful eating – almost as nice as whiting. The recent summer whiting season in the Nerang River was a bit different to seasons past, with a lot less rain than normal seeing the moon phases influencing the numbers and quality of fish more than usual. Good numbers of excellent-quality whiting …

Awesome Land-Based Pelagic Action

At the time of writing only a couple of longtail tuna have been hooked and every fish to date has been taken by bloody big sharks. Ashby angler Ted McLean hooked a big longtail well over 20kg on a live gar only to be left with the head after just one bite. Naturally, with the number of big pelagics patrolling …

Boat-based camping around Cape York

Swamp sedges and often pandanus trees signal water above or below ground, and small waterholes perched in the dunes are relatively common along many parts of eastern Cape York. In other places, underground water is signposted by damp ground and/or green patches of grass, and simply accessed by digging a hole. Use a metal mug, flattish rock or shell to …

Bass Fishing Tips from a Professional

They are the paddle-tail soft plastic, metal blade and the old-time favourite, the spinnerbait. The soft plastic is my favourite lure presentation because of its versatility. Its natural subtle action allows it to be fished year round, whether to an edge or down deep on both active and inactive fish. Fishing a plastic to an edge is most effective in clear water …

Putting the Sting into Your Vibes

Step four Position the two hooks together and feed the loop through the split ring or tow point and then feed the hooks and beads back through the loop formed. Before tightening, adjust the rig so the hooks are offset, with the dressed hook above the plain hook and the plain hook partially hiding in the skirting of the dressed …
