Hi there ellicat, the winds looking real nice for a change, I’ll be sneaking out tomorrow for a little fish myself, still undecided where I’ll go though, what do think you and old scaley will be chasing?

Hey @Another Wazza,

At this stage we are leaving from Manly and thinking of heading to Wello to try for some grassies first up, then up to Mud for some tuskies, then maybe the Rous for some whiting depending on how we're going at Mud.

Let us know if you'll be in the area and we'll keep an eye out for you.

I did forget to mention my good fortune in not landing a grinner all day. Steve, on the other hand...

I was hoping you wouldn’t mention that. You know how jealous @kmcrosby78 gets. It was a good day out, Brian, even if the fish didn’t play the game.

The weather is looking too good to miss out on this week.

So Monday @Old Scaley and I are heading out, Tuesday @Leosonfire and I are heading out and on Wednesday @shaun1800 and I are tagging up with @GregOug and decky and heading up Curtain way.

Tuesday is showing up as an 'Excellent' day for fishing according to the almanac, with Monday and Wednesday showing as 'Good' days.

Hopefully with 3 days on the water there will be something to show for it (other than an early tan) and the reports will keep those who have to work entertained.

 

Looking forward to it! Cracking day coming up with the fishing gods smiling down on us 🤞

Hey ellicat

Sounds like a fun little session you had, despite the unfortunate event of the anchor going.

At least you got some macks and whiting. The ray must've been a bit of fun.

Cheers Hamish

The macs were fun on the light gear even though they were small. The ray on the other hand, well...I knew it was a ray early on so the excitement level didn't peak too high. haha.

So good! Nice read Brian. 

Heaps of Watson's leaping bonito and schoolies been around amity this year, haven't heard anything for a couple of weeks though but always worth a go. Some nice winter jacks on the wall too. 

Some life long residents have said it is the most bait, mackerel, bonito, and tuna they have ever seen and they hung around for weeks. Great signs for the bay.

Catching longies and mackerel in my creek basher yak and landbased for a few weeks straight is going to be a lifelong memory. 

Lettuce know when you're next at amity and I'll cast some slugs at your boat 🙄

A bit of fun in an otherwise pretty quiet period, Wazza.

Gee, thanks Sam. haha

I got a couple of Watsons a month or two ago as well as a few schoolies but the last couple of trips they haven't been around.

When were you catching the longtails ?

It's rare to have an unchallenging day with them that's for sure. 

Northern and middle bay from January with a peak there in February and March. Then they tend to be spread out and can be targeted in the southern bay April til May, as well as along Bribie during these times. Especially when the first of the westerlies kick in Bribie is a goer in autumn

Hi Brian,

Yeah. Wednesday is not looking good now. Let’s keep an eye on Thursday. Otherwise there’s always next week.

cheers

Greg

Now it looks okay again (which doesn't sit well with the BOM not settled on what's going to happen), but I think I'll need a rest day so I'm going to head out Thursday for sure. Lookout Curtain Kingies !

Great info from the Guru. Thanks, Sam.

Hey ellicat

I think samsteele115 has kitted you up with information. Hopefully when it's season you can get a biggun.

Good session with Leosonfire also. While it wasn't the amount, at least you got some nice tuskies! 🙂 

Do you target anything on live whiting, like jew, or just stick to macky fishing?

Cheers Hamish

      Hi all
      This morning I had school fishing club, on the jetty. I was quite exhausted the day before, so I just went to bed early. It took me a while to get ready for school but somehow I managed to make it on time (to fishing club). I was just using the school's gear, which was handlines and servo prawns. Some came with five metres of line on them, some came in the biggest mess I've ever seen, but a couple were in perfectly fine working order. We had to pass a test for a couple of things, one which was casting a handline (That brought back memories of when I used to fish with them, one of which when two fell off the chair at the same time, and then turned out to be two big bream, not me knocking them off, lol). the other test was just putting on a prawn which was no worries. 
      To begin with, I casted my line into an eddy, in a channel made between the bank and the jetty. In this part of the river, the bank is littered with structure, such as rocks, vines, and huge eddies. It is very fishy. My hook and sinker held in the eddy, and in about five minutes I was getting nibbles. 
      "Tap, tap, tap... bang"! I was on something small, but it still provided a bit of fun on the handline. Very quietly I wound it in, making sure the fish did not run around the pylons. Soon enough, I had a very small cod on the jetty, to the surprise of most of the teachers. I grabbed it in the mouth and got the hook out, then took a quick picture. I let him back, and was quite happy that I'd managed to catch something.

      After about ten more minutes, of which I did get a couple of small nibbles, there were at least 25 people on the tiny jetty. It was squishy. Many more people came down, and lines were deployed everywhere you could think of. Luckily, a couple of my mates came to, which meant I had someone to talk to. We continued fishing the eddy, and kept loosing prawns to get bait. After a couple more casts and picks, I got a bad snag, which I just busted off. The school had kindly brought lots of hooks and sinkers, so this time I tied up with a smaller hook and sinker in hope I could escape the snags. 
      My friends were still getting lots of nibbles now, as was I, but I wasn't hooking up. There seemed to be lots of small stuff around. Someone on the other side of the jetty hooked up to something, which turned out to be a small eel (only 20CM - not even legal size!). Just to make matters a bit worse, I got snagged yet again, Lol. I busted off my hook and retied my line. This time I went back to the original rig in hope of catching another fish. I had an alright bite which I missed, and then I just spent the next part of the morning getting pickered. Someone hooked a bream, about 8CM, which was actually impressive as it was about a 3/o hook (and in the mouth perfectly). Sooner or later, it was time to go, but my mate didn't leave without causing a 5 way tangle...
      Thanks for reading this report. I hope you enjoyed. Obviously it's something a bit different, but there is a fishing club camp next hols. It didn't seem like the best spot, but apparently a couple threadies have been landed there. Maybe next week I will try with some live bait! Here are the stats of the trip, for anyone interested -

      I've been getting quite a few requests about how to catch tailor land based in Moreton Bay. I finally got around to filming and editing a video from the weekend. On this occasion we were fishing the flats at Point Halloran at low tide.

      Did not get any deckies this morning and by 10.15 I thought that they knew something as I had only caught 4 or 5 bass after trying most of my usual go to spots. I even resorted to trolling a crazy deep and one of jonseys lures for half an hour. The wind was just starting to get up and I decided to head back to the ramp when I spotted a solitary fish on the sounder and hit the spot lock and pulled a nice bass. By the time i landed it and I took a photo the sounder lit up and it was fish after fish till they moved on. I finished up with 41 bass. No percy to grunt at me and Dinos butcher birds big brothers were waiting for me when I got home to clean up the dead shrimp in the bottom of the boat. 35 of the squawking things.

      It was a great morning on the lake yesterday, a little cold to start, then the sun came out, a very slight breeze, lots of fish, then the wind started and time to go home. Last trip only managed 12 bass, this trip managed 58 with 2 on 50cm, you just have to find those schools to get the numbers up.Even had a mate visit me for a chat and a feed, which upset  Rays mate percy who was growling in the backround.
