threads like this get to me. what are you prepared to for any1 who helps you out?? huh.

don't just jump on a site and ask for good spots, especially if your a newbie, it makes you come across as a free loader who wants everybody's spots to fish, and to hell with those you have milked.

just my thoughts.

maybe get to know some of the people for a while first hey!

I'll politely disagree with no name.. Absolutely no harm in asking for afew good spots to try to get the fish your after. Your not asking for X spots and we aren't a bunch of chicks who need to be bought dinner before pumped for abit of info... Thats what this sites all about so welcome!

Like yourself I always manage to get the 25-30cm variety's.. Although there are some big buggers out there. They are absolutely everywhere but love the rocky territory.. I got this one (32cm) on a gold halco scorpion in the Noosa river casting over a rock bar for Jacks. Anywhere along the rocky shores of the Brisbane river would be your best bet locally land based. I have also taken afew land based up in Coochin Creek & around Jacobs well.. Just head for some nasty rocky looking territory!

I have never specifically targeted them as most people will tell you they are very much a bi catch while fishing for other species like bream and Jacks.

Gold is a great colour to start with if your really hoping to get one but honestly Cod will take nearly any lure, plastic or bait.

Goodluck! [img size=500

great fish!!!

incidentally......does anyone know at what size - if ever with cod species - cigautera (spelling?) poisoning becomes a risk?

73.34 Cm.


No im not sure. But is a "A Size" at which point they get it?

Or is it just larger models are more likely to?

I was under the impression that larger fish are at risk of carrying cigautera but not 100% a s s u r e d ?

I could be wrong so def a question worth asking.

Prob deserves a thread of its own so we dont go waaaaaaaaaay off topic though :P
