After a very slow start on Sunday morning reef fishing , Tony and I headed out to the edge of Sunshine to troll around for a marlin and a spanish.

Got 6 hook-ups on wahoo 3 bite offs, 3 landed!! Then on our way home Tony saw a floating log so we pulled up to be greeted by hammerhead shark and hundreds of Dolphin fish!! great fun on light spin gear, jumping and carrying on many released for another day!!

Awesome day on the water off Noosa!!

bream

I took Ella & Lily for a run in Lenny's boat on Saturday morning. We had a great time. Both girls got a nice bream on prawns, and while they were doing that I cast a Lucky Craft Kerrol Jnr surface popper around and landed 2 nice bream on surface.

That's was long enough for the girls in the boat so we decided to go to the Frying Pan to one of the many sand banks for a play and swim. Of course while I was watching the girls like a good dad, I had a few casting off the sand bank and actually got a couple of cracker Whiting on the same surface lure.

Great Fun for me, the girls & the dog.

Ducked out for a fish with Jarryd Gunter Sunday morning. We decided to throw some surface lures around. Ended up having a great morning catching a few bream, whiting, trevally and some Moses perch. Cheers, Mick

Lake Mcdonald
Ed and I headed out to lake last Thursday for a quick morning flick. I got out to the dam by 4.30 and waited for Ed but someone had a bit of a sleep in cause they set there alarm to PM instead of AM ha-ha. so by the time Ed got there it was 5.00Am we headed up to the Weedy point and fished surface.

I used a Cultiva Zipp n Ziggy in the natural colour and Ed used a Jackall SK pop in clear ayu we had heaps of hits on both but no hook ups so we decided to head up to the Three Ways. Still using surface lure I had a bass jump clear out of the water straight over my Zipp n Ziggy but missed it completely so I paused the lure for a good 5 sec and started to retrieve again, on the first wind of the handle I hooked up to a cracker bass, it went 42cm to the tip which was great fun to catch .

After that the bass were a bit timid on surface so we decided to work subsurface casting blades and spinner baits , Smak 3/8oz in Ayu color were the Spinner bait of choice. The technique with the blades was to cast the lure way up into the weeds and burn it over the top of the weed ,the bass were smashing the lures. We caught around 15 bass and the majority of decent size. By around 9 o’clock the edge bite slowed down so we decided to head over to the bubble trail. Casting little max 1/4oz blades in the #235 colour we caught another 8 bass up to 40cm. These bass were sitting close to the bottom so we used a hopping retrieve and this technique worked the best.

Drop into Hooked-On and have a yack with Callum to get all the details !

Lake Maccas report
Josh Ross and I headed out To lake MacDonald for an early morning fish. We headed up to Borer creek casting ¼ oz little max blades in the black and gold colour.

Bass

Targeting the weed we would cast the blade right up into the weed and would burn the lure through the tops of the weed trying to get a aggressive reaction bite. This technique caught heaps of bass up to 42cm. we then headed up to the Three ways.

We targeted the deep channels in the weed using Smak ice jigs and Berkley gulp 4" Swimnows in the banana prawn colour. We caught 10 bass all decent size . We were releasing these fish back into the school which shut them down eventually. For the morning we caught around 40 bass, they we on fire . The bubble trail has been firing as well live shrimp has been the best bait ,but ice jig /Jackall mask vibes and little max blades are producing great results, so drop into the shop for some more pointers and get out onto the dam.

Bass

Ed has also been fishing lake MacDonald quite a bit lately and has been catching a few bass on surface lures. Ed has been going out for a early morning fish before work and has been casting Tiemco soft body cicada surface lures and Jackall SK pop grande's around and has been having great success. Ed has also been targeting the Borer creek area on shallow diving hard bodies like Atomic hardz and Jackall Chubby's .He took young Jarryd Gunter out for his first bass session and Jarryd got his first Bass on a lure , we are sure he will catch many more based on how keen he is to learn and his persistence will pay off .

Cheers
Callum Munro

Took a few of the Junior Hooked On Team Member for a fish over the last two mornings. Big tides and a fair bit of wind around making it a little bit challenging but we still got a few fish. We mainly throw Poppers and I also got a flathead on a Prawn Star in the snag. There are some good whiting on the flats, poppers and walkers were doing the damage we only landed small ones but missed some good ones.

Morning flick on Noosa River - Mick Geary

 

11 January 2013    

 
 

Had a great weekend, sneaking in a fish both days firstly I went for a kayak fish early Saturday morning. I decided to try Eenie Creek because I thought it would be out of the wind and I was right. I started throwing surface popper (Saku Popper have been working will) around and caught one nice bream and half a dozen bream that were undersize but still awesome fun watching these feisty little fish crash and bash your popper and take it at the side of the kayak.

BUT the most exciting thing was i spotted a free swimming Mangrove Jack swimming along the bank, of course it was just a reaction to cast my popper if front of him. To my amazement the cast was a good one and I gave it one pop and watched as his tail and fins lit up and accelerated and cover the 2 foot in a split second to smash the popper off the surface. It is one of the most memorable moments in my fishing career; needless to say I laughing so hard that he bricked me into the snag and left the lure on the branch. I will be back for round 2 soon!

Then on Sunday went for a fish with Harry in between the lakes to chase some Jacks. With the fire that went through the area recently, there are heaps of new snags in the water. We start out the bottom and fish in with the last of the run in. I Fished poppers early with good results landing 3 jack but once the tide started running hard out thing went quiet. We would cast hard against the bank and in the quiet pockets of the snags, do a couple of big pops then leave for a second and continue back to boat. Be warned his is a very addictive style of fishing if you start sometimes it is very very hard to put the popper outfit away. You also had to find the bait, we would fish a stretch of bank with no bait for no action but as soon as we found bait we would start get hits.

jack

Poppers that I have been throwing have been R.A. Pop, Atomic Hardz Popper, Jackall Sk-Pop Grande and Bubble Pop 45-65. Summer Time is an awesome time of year. But Please remember Jacks are too good of a fish to only catch once please thinking of the future.

Cheers
Mick
