Had a few net fulls of herring聽a nice flathead and 1 small shark

Hi tugger

Alright, was the herring made into bait or released?

Thanks for posting @tugger. It was an awesome day on the water and I learned a lot about prawning from you and @Drop Bear. I still need more practice casting but I was happy with the results (so was Mrs Scaley). I weighed the prawns as I cooked or froze them and I ended up with just over 5kg, which is a pretty healthy total in my opinion. It was good to see the friendly approach and comraderie among the boats in the scrum. Especially given how close together everyone is, there were no harsh words just healthy banter.聽

Looking forward to doing it again sometime soon.

Hi Old Scaley

That is good there was no arguing, and that everyone is getting along. Nice job on the prawns as well 馃檪

Cheers Hamish 馃檪

To easy Steve its just technique and practice the most put of boats was small compared to when it's real busy . When the prawns finally get eaten at home here we should give it another crack the season is young.

Well hello my dear friend Steve, I have just for some reason remembered that I still haven't got around to returning that little packet of fishing hooks you leant me, let me know if you're around tomorrow, it would be absolutely no hassle for me to drop it off at your house ........... 馃槣

Well done fellas, great feed between the three of you. My recurring neck/shoulder problem has struck again this week - hoping it will continue to improve and I can sneak out for a fish on Sunday given the weather forecast. And then hopefully right to attack these prawns myself soon.

Hi kmcrosby78

Yes, hopefully you can get out for a fish this weekend. I am hoping to as well, it just depends on my dad as we may be taking the kayak out 馃檪

Haha @kmcrosby78. Already eaten half the haul, and keen to get more. 聽Maybe when they close the schools you will have some week days available. 聽I would be happy to do the聽casting and you do the driving.

      Finally made it out to Morton Island today, it was touch and go though as to if we would get out at all, went to bed at 10:00pm last night but due to the heat and humidity, the 4:00am start didn't eventuate. By the time 4:00am rolled around I had only managed to get about 1.5 hours of sleep so need less to say we said, another hour in bed and then another hour and again and again. By the time 8:00am rolled around I only managed another 2 hours sleep, was having one of those sleepless nights. Not highly conducive to dragging my butt out of bed and out on the bay, but I figured it may be the last chance for a while so the missus agreed and and I said lets do it.
      Got on the water by about 9:30am and headed off toward Morton Island. Conditions on the bay were quite good compared to the norm there and we anchored up in 12.5m of water just south of Comboyuro Point. Dropped the reef anchor and got organized to fish.
      As soon as the bait hit the bottom all I got was pick, pick, pick. The first fish of the day was a Lancer, followed by more pick, pick, pick etc, a lot of fish feeding went on for a while. Changed the bait to 5 month old squid and started to get Grassies, Yellow Fin Bream,聽 a Wrasse, then more of the same. After 90 minute the current there started to pick up very fast, it was raging, I had to increase my sinker weight several times and ended up at using a 8oz snapper lead, and even then it only just touched the bottom before being swept down current, had to let out about 40m before it touched down again and we only in 12.5m of water.
      Then it all shut down so we called it quits, only to find that our reef anchor had well and truly hooked up to the bottom, so spent about 20 minutes driving up towards it, over it, then sideways, and in the end we managed to straighten two of the prongs, it then pulled free and it came up nicely.
      I let all the fish go as they were too small, although I was contemplating putting a much larger hook in the wrasse to see what might be interested in it but couldn't remember what the legal size was, so just let it go as well to grow some more. The Bream were legal size but couldn't be bothered, so not a total donut but didn't bring any fish home.

      Took a well earned rest from 鈥渂assing 鈥渨ith Ray聽today .
      Hooked聽up the big boat at 3.30am聽聽,collected聽my son at Bribie at 4.15am聽and proceeded聽north to the Sunshine Coast along with what seemed every other boat in SE Qld .
      Target species were Spanish聽Mackerel and they didn鈥檛 disappoint . We found some bait with Spanish on it well away from the crowd just on sunrise聽聽, quickly deployed聽2 troll聽baits and picked up聽2 Spanish聽聽for the ice box聽ice in a couple of minutes.
      This bit of action resulted in聽聽quickly being inundated by other keen fishermen. We voted on a tactical聽move聽to let the hoards scare聽the crap out of that school 聽and we went looking聽elsewhere . After moving a km or so we found some more and聽put another 3 in the esky and headed home . 5 hits - 5 fish no shark issues. Very tidy day with some quality fish 12 to 18 kg each.
      Qld Fisheries officer collecting聽聽the carcasses for research at 7am Monday morning .
      regards

      Hi all聽
      yesterday I tried fishing the lowood bend area of the Brisbane river聽and downstream from that聽in a yak from around 2pm through to 6pm. I only caught one bass-30-35cm whilst trailing a deep diver and that was it! I also tried a cicada lure from 5pm with no success.聽
      I also fished this area last week using the same lures (divers聽and cicada)聽and caught a large fork tail catty on聽the cicada.聽

      the area looks super fishy with loads of snags and plenty of water. On both occasions it was very hot and humid so the fish should be firing.聽
      anyone had much luck around this area? And if so what have you caught and on what?聽
      thanks聽

      I caught this at Mud island Monday. I have never seen one before and it is not recognised by my Fish ID app. It was around 25cm long and released to puzzle another fisherman. Tally for the morning was 6 grass Sweetlip, one bream and one whiting.
