Recent rain revitalised Broadwater region

The area between Crab Island and the mouth of the Coomera River is the place to find them. The best spot for tailor south of the Seaway has been the eastern edge of the main channel to Marina Mirage, fishing at the top of the tide or just on dark. Now I must confess the past couple of months for me …

Changes to recreational fishing rules And with thousands of jobs on the line, creating more parks and closing existing ones will mean longer queues for the dole.

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.

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.

A number of times I have been in the middle of a great jack bite when a boat has gone past and rolled wash onto the banks and the fish have instantly gone off the bite.

Good-quality catches around Cairns

large-mouth nannygai

We have experienced varying success on spanish mackerel, and mackerel numbers seem to be down a little. However plenty of large fish in the 15-20kg range have been reported. Our best effort was a monster 35kg specimen that gave one lucky angler a real fight. We normally put a floater or live bait out while at anchor and troll lures …

Wild bass in small creeks
