#fishing report & my #catchoftheday
Coming in at 82cm & weighting 12kg this massive goldspotted estuary cod certainly tested my gear. He engulfed an Atomic Hardz Metalz 80 1oz in Ghost Gill Brown.
Over the last 2 days I have fished south of River Heads within the Great Sandy Strait. Concentrating on casting lures in & around drains & gutters in the early morning & then as the sun rose & became very hot I moved off of the flats & into deeper water. Jigging a mixture of vibes along drops offs, ledges & deep holes. I returned to the ramp by late morning each day.
I noticed the water clarity along the inside of Fraser Island is excellent. So clear that at times it was problematic as it is very easy to spook fish from some distance. Long casts were key.
Water temp is around 24 degrees.
I found lots of flathead, bream, whiting, golden trevally and some salmon whilst fishing the drains & gutters. Unfortunately I could not get the salmon to take a lure. They were very easily spooked.
I was using a mix of 3" soft plastics & the crossfire 110.
There were plenty of fish found using my @humminbird_au_nz when I moved into deeper water but I noticed the bite was quite finicky.
However, with small tides it is quite easy to stay above the fish & harass them until they bite. I found 1oz weighted vibes worked best in 10 to 15m of water.
I hope this helps folks, standby for a few short #videos from the last 2 days.
Take care & all the best. 👍
🎣💥 FINALLY 💥🎣
Sorry work, it has been far too long 🤪😜

The #sun is starting to set on our @eurongbeachresort #family#weekend getaway. 👍👍 We made it across the island and are enjoying a swim before boarding the barge back to River Heads and then a short drive home.
See if you can guess where we are ending our #eurongbeachresort weekend getaway ???
The prize...... title of photo detective extraordinaire 👍😁😎
This morning we departed @eurongbeachresort #eurongbeachresort to explore lake Birrabeen. A gorgeous lake that is not as busy as the iconic Lake Mackenzie but still with perfect fine white silica sand and crystal clear water. The 4wd track had a few tricky spots but we made it in without any problems. We are now sadly making our way back to the western side ready to leave by barge this afternoon. We are already planning our next trip!! #islandlife#beach#fishinglife
This morning's adventure took us to Central Station to explore the historical site and take a wander along the breathtaking Wangoolba Creek walk. Only about 30min drive from our accommodation at @eurongbeachresort #eurongbeachresort
This place is absolutely AMAZING!
Guess the location ........ 🤔🤨🙄😏
The prize...... title of 'Geographical Wizz' for the whole week 🤣😂 👍👍 Taken - Back When I Used to #fish 🙄
