Lure of the week
The river 2 Sea Whopper Plopper
The Whopper Plopper gets bit. It cast’s a mile, and its ability to work at the widest possible range of speeds, makes it a great tool for honing in on the most productive speeds and rhythms for that particular day. Available in a variety of colours, the River2Sea Whopper Plopper’s tail is also perfectly tuned right out of the box – so it stays flexible and working properly forever.
Fishing has been really good this past week out at Cooby, with good amounts of cod and yellow belly being caught. Jigging saltwater yabbies and ZX blades have been the pick of the tactics. Also, early on in the morning people are having great success on tn60’s trolled close to the beds.
Big numbers of yellow belly were being caught over the long weekend, most of the angler were bagging out on fish, saltwater yabbies were the bait of choice, with the trolling anglers struggling to catch a fish.
Few and far between this week, a lot of the smaller fish have been biting quite well, the larger fish have been very tight to the bottom. The best way to target these fish have been trolling a deep diving hardbody that bumps into the bottom. Also jigging blades and ice jigs have been claiming some reasonable fish. Pelican Point is still the most productive spot.
Bjelkie Peterson Dam
Quantity over quality this past week, casting small metal blades and tailspinners have been picking up a lot of the smaller fish, the trolling anglers are having good success, covering ground with a Jackall tn60 has been working well.
Some great results over the last week, starting too move into deeper water, the spit is still holding large amounts of fish, this week the fish have suspended into 35 foot and soft plastics and spoons have been working a treat. Also, worth a look around the start of the timber.
The weather is cooling down and the fish are well and truly on the move, some better results are starting to come in, large surface lures like the Mudeye snakes have claimed some great fish in the last week, also Jackall Gantarels and Gantias are still the lure of choice.
Gold Coast off Shore
Its that time of year when the snapper show up in large numbers, the closer reefs like the 18-24 fathom reefs are always worth a look, lightly weighted pilchards are proving to be the most productive. Fishing wide off the reefs there has been some Mackeral getting around, trolling large hardbodies and skirts should get you a limit. With the lead up to the full moon this week there will large numbers of bream squire coming into the seaway, cut baits like pilchards and prawns will be your best bet.
