First look at Bribie for the summer whiting
« on: Mon 19 Aug 15:17 2019 »
Launched at Spinnaker Sound just after 6.00 and put the pots down, hoping for a sandie or two. Pumped some yabbies and went looking for the whiting. They were very hard to find and I often went more than an hour between fish. Ended up with only four keepers (best about 30cm) and 2 unders released. The bream were more cooperative, and although at first they were very small, as the tide rose the quality improved, and I ended up with 8 keepers with more than half of them around the 30cm mark also. Ran the pots about three times for a total of about a dozen crabs - a mixture of bucks and jennies, but only 4 keepers. There's a bit of snot weed starting to show. I was fishing fairly shallow and it didn't worry my lines much, but there was a fair bit on the crab pots each time I lifted them and I had to take the time to clear most of it away so that the pots wouldn't start migrating with the tidal run. Came in about 12.30 just before the westerly started to blow.
