Threadfin salmon in the Logan River
« on: Thu 8 Mar 12:26 2018 »
Hi Guys, It's been a while since i last posted. I was down the river a couple of weeks ago chasing whiting with a mate, we ended up with 10. The biggest was 42cm, most around 36cm. 1 flathead at 58cm & 6 bream around 37cm. But with all this rain around i was told there might be some threadies around, any help on finding some would be helpful. By the way if you haven't been in the Logan for a while, there are new signs up on the banks for no fishing,cast netting etc because of the white spot issues. Ruddo

I've never caught Threadfin in the Logan, or seen it done. I use live banana prawns in the Brissie R -but you'd have to catch them there in the Logan .
Threadybusters, and other soft plastics should also work - but not for me.

Cheers,
Red

Nice report Ruddo,

    One of our members, Nick in the club has caught a few Threadies down there, not in
big numbers that's for sure but the ones he has brought to the weigh ins have been
solid fish.

Cheers Jason
