  1. A freezing start greeted us Sunday morning for the Toorbul monthly fishing comp. We really struggled to find quality fish with a lot of undersized bream coming over the side. There was no breeze and the water was the clearest I have seen it in the past year. I think this may have scared off the fish from their normal areas in the shallows Final tally 3 whiting all 31cms and a couple of bream
  2. Headed out for a fish and managed a couple of unusual catches. Caught my first ever crab!!!!, and also managed to hook up to a one eyed whiting. Both caught on soft plastics. Picked up quite a few small flatties as well which were all released.
  3. Hey guys, Going over for the weekend this weekend leaving Friday and coming back sunday on the Micat. I will be land based and was hoping someone could give me a bit of a run down on a good sport to grab a feed over there. I am going with the better half and a group who aren't that into fishing so I might only be able to get away for a few hours. We're planning on staying close to the resort. Any decent spots within a relatively quick drive that is worth a fish on the Eastern side of the island. Last time there looked like there some pretty good gutters and I still think it is hard to go past a good feed of whiting. Any time saving spots I can head straight to to maximise my time soaking a line would be much appreciated!
  4. Managed to capture a great trevally strike right at the side of the yak last weekend. Water was only around 40cm deep and there must have been around 10cm of line left. Took me by surprise thats for sure. Also managed a few other fish on the surface and soft plastics.
  5. I've attached a link from the video I put together from a couple of mornings ago. Cheers.
  6. Fishing the picturesque setting of Walpole WA for King George Whiting when my bait was taken by and Eagle Ray. No chance, right? What and see! :-)
  7. Fished the Monthly Toorbul Comp yesterday. Fished the mouth of Coochin Creek early for the annoying pony fish (atm my most hated fish!)and undersize bream. Moved to Hussey Creek to find more under size bream. The wind got up so I decided to try Coochin again. It payed off this time boating 10 nice whiting. Inbetween them where the normal rays and long toms to keep the little reels screaming. One of the whiting was this horse at 40cms. A couple of cms under my PB but was still stoked to get it. Little hands always make for better fish photos
  8. Great morning. Hit a Tweed coast tidal lake this morning hoping to get some whiting. Lots of yabby banks made things look promising but kicked off the morning with a green marlin... Hmm. Not to be put off kept going and managed a few mini bream. Finally on a nice sandy flat Joel pinned something better. After a good fight presto... Our target. Thay was about it for the morning. Slower than some but every dawn on the water is awesome. We got home to be regailed with how good the Whiting were in the surf. Tanya's dad had managed 6 in a quick pre breakfast session. Eating like kings this weekend. If only weekends were longer.
  9. Headed into the creek today to drop some crab pots in and rustle up some bream. Pots down and a few bream later it was time to head back... Back down the beach for one more dig at the Whiting for dinner (there are 9 people). Not a bad little crack and a good feast coming. Hopefully we can replicate tomorrow plus some crab Then little time with the boy before beer o'clock. 3 reports in one day... Not bad
  10. Self explanatory... Got some bigger sessions planned ill put more effort into report then. Time for coffee and brownie pointa
  11. Headed back for a lunch time flick with Joanne, @Tanya mother. As it happens she is a whiting fisher person who grew up at Bribie fishing for Whiting exclusively. Well it shows. 8 fish caught and 2 by me. Oh well a cracking dinner on the way.
  12. Well what a fun session. Hit a new spot this morning with good results. Using exclusively topwater lures my mate Joel and I yakked the dawn chasing, well whatever would bite. It was a bit slow to start with a few pike coming over the side... Things were looking grim and took this snap so I could at least do a poor report. No long after the sun breached we came to a little drop off. The current was moving over the shallow weed beds and edying as it hit the deep water. This is were things improved. Every cast was a bream hit with over 20 landed in an hour. The most productive and entertaining session in ages. Stopped taking pictures as well, they all look the same after a while... As if I was not happy enough the last fish I hooked was my best for the day. After a solid no mucking around surface hit and a brilliant fight in less than 1m of water I caught site of a huge whiting. A measure confirmed what I had been hoping. A new PB at 43cm. A genuine elbow slapper Very happy with the session I was home to help with the kids by 8am. Great start to the day.
  13. Caught this fat girl on a yabbie off the bank at the park at the end of the Esplanade at Toorbul, quick pic and back in the drink, to release all the roe she had in her. Caught another 4 but all under size, fishing beats working. MSB

    Heading down to Blairgowrie next week for a holiday, where are some good land based spots to find flathead or whiting as well as what piers are best for squid. Thanks
  15. Well I managed to sneak out for an hour while Alastair was asleep yesterday. Northerly made it really hard to flick plastics but used a few pipis to catch a few worms and converted these into a double trifecta of Casurina bread and butter. Probably my pb or close dart as well pushing 45cm. Nothing flash but a nice dinner for today. Had to settle for this marinara I made for dinner last night (slowly perfecting this).
  16. Hey team a bit of a late report froma couple of weeks ago. Sorry been very busy and not on as much as usual but will pick up the game Anyway headed to northern nsw to chase some jacks with a mate Joel. Stayed at inlaws so a dawn was on the cards . Hit the water early and got straight into some little, but fun gts. Great fun on the areals and 1000 sized reels with gold drag peeling runs. 3 trevs in and lost a good jack. Watched it grab lure and run off only to have it, or so I assumed, spit the lure. It was 3 casts later I realized the back trebles were smooshed. Oh well Anyway in the arvo we headed down wirh some worms and plastics for a feed of whiting and 1 flathead. Good times. 1
  17. After last weekend’s success, it was time to go fishing again. Our first spot was at Chevron Island. With the steep drop off and oyster covered rocks, it doesn’t really look like a go to spot for whiting, but it produces. It only took about 90 seconds for Eva to get the first whiting, a good fish of 30 cm. We got a few more whiting there and some legal bream and tarwhine to 30cm before we decided to head upstream to Mermaid Waters. Again, very quickly we got our first whiting before we got a couple of bream. One of the lines then took off out of the rod holder and started sliding down the beach, with a grunter bream of about 34 cm being the culprit. Things went quiet for awhile. Max started fishing for garfish and got a fan tail mullet of about 10 cm which I used for live bait, only to have it eaten by a pike eel. We then got a double hook up which turned out be another solid grunter and then a whiting. All in all, it was another fun day which produced a good feed of fish.
  18. Hi all, With a weekend not dominated by rain, it was time to get out and have a serious fish for whiting. The first port of call was a location at Paradise Point. It generally holds plenty of fish, but it has plenty of run. This is not usually a bad thing, but at this spot nine times out of ten the run is full of weed. It didn't disappoint with more weed than a Friday night in Nimbin. Both Max and I got our PB of weed, and I got a pile that must of been about 3kg (wet weight) that took line in the current. There were a couple of whiting mixed in with the salad. Yabbies were the the best bait on this occassion. We followed up the morning session with a later afternoon trek to the Nerang River. Specifically to a spot at Chevron Island which I refer to as either the "Pancake Manor" due to the amount of stingrays present or the "Ant Farm" due to the high probability of being bitten by a variety of ant species. Often the best bite there is from a green ant. The stingrays didn't disappoint with a three out of the first four fish being stingrays and the other being a long finned catfish eel. Not a great start but persistence paid of with a good burst of whiting at dusk and into the evening. Cribb Island worms did the trick here. The best fish for the trip was only 33cm, but most were between 29 and 33cm. We ended up with a fair haul. The light got too poor to record any useable footage after awhile, but the highlight in my opinion is at the end of the video when a very excited Max deals with a double hook up of a 32 and 33cm fish. You sometimes hear that you can't catch fish land based in the Nerang, but that is not true. While public access to the foreshore is limited, there are still various locations to get a feed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTyqVLLTHDc
  19. While "summer" whiting can be caught year round on the Gold Coast, I start to focus on them from August onwards. As the day length gets longer, this stimulates the development of their gonads which requires them to feed more, hence making them easier to catch. Contrary to popular opinion, you can catch a feed of whiting during the day in the Nerang. I braved the 20+ knots of westerly on the weekend and went up the Nerang River where I still got third degree wind burn. We finished with a feed of okay sized whiting from 29 to 36 cm, so no trophy fish, but a solid kilo or so of fillets. One legal tarwhine and a few undersized bream were the only other fish caught.
  20. Hit the goldy last Friday night for a session with a mate chasing some whiting on bait, we both cracked out the alveys grabbed a few beers and anchored watching the footy and having a few laughs. Was a slow night but the quality of the catch was good
