Nerang River Again
« on: Mon 13 Nov 13:33 2017 »
The Nerang River has been fishing well of late and this weekend was no different. We started well upstream. When I am fishing upstream I prefer yabbies as the prime bait and they worked a treat. We started with a mixed bag, some whiting, some tarwhine and a solid grunter bream. I cast netted a good sea mullet as well. There were plenty of bream around 25cm as well. We then moved downstream and the worms came into their own. It was a good whiting bite with Max producing a fish of 37cm, well off his PB but a good fish nonetheless. We went home with an excellent haul overall.

Remember, you don't need a boat to get a good catch of fish in Moreton Bay.

    Looking forward to the next trip

    He was there before we got there. He didn't catch a fish. I don't think he went home very happy.

    He could have learnt from you by asking how you can be so successful. Then perhaps he would not go home so disappointed next time.

    Thanks Millsy.

    Namilim. It looked like he had all the expensive gear and a very large tacklebox full of lures. Money spent at tackleshops doesn't always equate to good catches. I will always help someone if they ask, but he didn't ask.

    Hey Fishy Mick,

    Like all of us, the kids have scored the dreaded donut more than once. Donuts do not make for a good video.

    Hi Daryl,
    Thanks for the reply. I went looking at some of the videos you have posted and they were really good to watch. I had a look on Google Maps /Satellite and figured out where you go and what the conditions look like to set my understanding. However, I would like to know more about catching whiting. I am at Victoria Point, recently moved there, and am now scouting the local area. A query on the rigs you use if I may? Is it a 500mm leader, swivel, pea sinker above the swivel, long shank red hook, and I'm guessing yabbies for bait? I also add 1" of red tubing above my hook to try and encourage bites as well. Being going out with my son, and last weekend we got a couple of small bream and managed 16 sand crabs which was fantastic. I'm looking to get into some Bream, Flathead and Whiting around my crabbing in our local area.  8)
    Any tips would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hey Millsy,

    I fish Point Halloran for bream and tailor a fair bit in late autumn and winter if you search for Point Halloran on this site, the posts should come up.

    Daryl

    MQ, I am looking forward to Max's book as well.
