Good luck mate. Looks like you have skipped to the last page chasing Jew landbased. Get ready for some cold lonely nights wondering if you have made the right choice vs a nice warm bed.

Prawning and Crabbing / Re: Lots of small sandies in the bay

Hard day at the office,Dropped 4 four pots in the passage (7am) this morning loaded with chicken frames,you couldn't buy a mullet up here yesterday for all the tea in China,they produced 3 keepers from roughly 20 crabs the rest roughly 50/50 under size and Jennies.
First flick of a plastic produced an under size Flathead, I only hook up twice more in the next 3 hours losing another under size Flathead at he boat and landing a just size Bream.
Still I've worse days.

I start chasing sandies from 1st of Sept to mid November
then they disappear till about mid Feb when they return till about mid March
Sep to Nov seems to be when the best quality are around
I give mine an overnight soak with big baits in the pots
high tide needs to be in the 1.9m to 2.1m range for best results
any smaller and not enough run any bigger and they don't seem to pot cause of to much run

Btw - I only use whiting frames solely for bait
Probably put say 6-8 frames to a pot

Thanks Blinky,

Our of curiosity, what time of year is best for sandies?

I mainly chase muddies but have been some pots out when I go whiting fishing during winter.

Always manage a feed, but as you mentioned I measure most crabs. I haven't caught any of those big dinner plate sandies.

Cheers
Bermo

Offshore / Mooloolaba
« Last post by BeastMaster on Mon 21 May 21:46 2018 »
Towed the boat to Mooloolaba on Saturday. Arrived at the ramp at about 5.30am to find the car park already full .Appeared  most fisho had  left Friday night or some what earlier than me, as there was only two boats in the line for the ramp . Launched without drama and got to my spot just as the sun popped up over the horizon.
Pulled a nice feed  8 Grassies ,5 Venus Tuskfish , a School Mackerel and a real good Spotty Mac in good time ,also got a nice little bonus trout on an old 6to8 kg Live Fibre Rod  I bought from Dav at the clubs last flea market .( Ha Dav - that rod still works ok !!).
Beautiful day out and a good feed to boot .
Regards
BeastMaster

Southern bay holds heaps of small and undersized sandies  through winter
You can normally get a feed but need to measure most crabs
