7 May 2021

*Charters available next week, get in quick

*Hot fishing and awesome weather

Dad joke:

Someone tried to sell me a coffin today.

I said that’s the last thing I need.


G’day everyone unfortunately due to the rain on wednesday and some family commitments I only got to spend two days on the water. The good news is that the fishing was fantastic and so was the weather with perfect mild temperatures and little to no wind.

The water temperature dropped from 22 degrees to 19.5 and this made fishing the deep holes a bit off the pace but by working in shallower water and areas that were draining off the shallow flats that were warmed up from the sun the fishing was very good. 

Little 9 year old DJ did a great job of landing this GT on light gear

This is a handy tip through winter that fish will often migrate and move into areas of the river that has warmer pockets of water. The main catch was once again a bundle of bream which is going to be a constant reliable species through the next two months and we caught a heap of flatties and although there was no trophy sized fish the quality was awesome. 

DJ also caught this 57cm flattie trolling a Hurricane slam lure

The other species we caught were a few Giant Trevally which we caught trolling around the edges of where the birds were bombing the bait schools forced to the surface by the GTs. The best lures this week were pontoon 21 crackjacks, hurricane slams and the ever reliable zx 40s.

The fishing was mostly great this week, and we had some perfect weather typical of this time of year. 

Some rain in between will keep the good fishing times rolling on! I had 82mm on Wednesday and Thursday in the rain gauge here at Bundall. The run out tide runoff will be a bit dirty still near creek mouths.

John aka Jetty Charters with a nice flattie

Water temp sitting around 22 degrees, tons of bait fish and prawns are present in the rivers and broadwater which attracts many predatory fish. That rain set back the arrow squid activity, but it shouldn’t take long to clear with the new moon next Wednesday causing bigger tides. I’ll be looking for the arrows on the run in tides in the channels and on the broadwater reefs.

The motley crew

Best areas to fish, anywhere there’s water haha, literally fish everywhere. Apart from today Friday, after a bright start the NW wind and falling air pressure shut them down. That’s fishing.

Flathead are suckers for Samaki vibes in whitebait colour

Tides growing over the next week, fish the seaway close to tide changes and away from it when there’s stronger flow.
