Lure of the week
Zerek Live Swimbait 8inch
The Zerek Live Mullet is a soft plastic jointed swimbait that is available in three sizes. Built from the super strong TPE thermoplastic, the live mullet uses the same concept as the widely acclaimed live shrimp – to emulate natural prey movements to trigger strikes. To achieve this goal, the designers used a segmented body that is held together with a Kevlar webbing, giving strength and unparalleled freedom of movement. The main body section hides an ingeniously designed one-piece wire frame that connects the tow point to the hook hanger, giving even more strength. Easily workable with a straight retrieve, the life-like 3D eyes and detailed finishes (natural and attractor patterns) make the Zerek Live Mullet an essential addition to your tackle kit whether that’s chasing barra, chasing Murray cod, chasing mulloway and everything in between.
Still Remain Shut Due to an Algae Bloom Outbreak
Cressbrook Unfortunately is still closed for all recreational activities due to a cyanobacteria (blue green algae) outbreak. The park area remains open.
It has been a week of rock and diamonds with anglers either amongst some great fish or finding very hard to even tempt a bite. The Southern Flat of pelican Point and the Kirkliegh Flats have been holding the better fish, Spoons, Spinnerbaits and Tailspiiners have the go too lures. The trolling anglers have a had a great streak within the last few weeks with most anglers getting good numbers of fish in the same areas, Littler Rippers ans Smak Golden Childs have gotten the most response from the fish.
This week the fish have really pushed shallow to chase the Redclaw and the other bait source. Spinnerbaits, Lipless Crankbaits and Deep diving suspended hardbodies have worked very well on the reaction type fish that are holding very close to structure.
Still quite a consistent lake at the moment with good catches of cod last weekend, the biggest measuring at 121cm. The anglers having the most success on these fish are trolling Heavy Spinnerbaits close to the bottom. With the vibration a spinnerbait puts out the fish have realy racted well to it as the water clarity isnt the best. The yellow belly have been on the bite into the late afternoon, Jigging soft vibes and Zx40 around isolated structure have been very successful.
Definitely the most consistent Dam with a lot of angers catching good numbers of fish, The Bass are schooled up in numbers in the basin not far from the wall, Spoons and Spinnerbaits being the lure of choice, with this hot humid weather there has been the odd Saratoga being caught, looking for these fish in the timbered arms will be your best bet.
For several weeks this lake has fished very tough due to the drop in water level. The dam has just reached 12 percent and it has reached that level where it wont be lowered to much more, A few more weeks and the fishing should be red hot with the fish being able to get comfortable in their area. As the cooler weather shouldn’t be far off it can only mean one thing, Swimbaits and Topwater will be on the menu coming into winter.
Gold Coast Offshore
Its that time of year when the Spanish Mackeral tend to head in to the closer waters of the Gold Coast, Targeting these fish with either shallow or deeper diving Hardbodies will be your best bet while covering water looking for these fish. The close inshore reefs like the 24 and 36 fathom reefs have fished well for Larger Snapper and Pearl Perch. While drifting over these reefs float lining pilchards have picked up the odd Co
