Very nice, you’ll get your meterey in no time. There are meter + jew in there Sean but you either have to target them specifically with a big livie(40cm Tailor, mullet or Blackfish) or be patient and work your way through the hordes of 63-80cm fish…. or you could just fluke a big one on a small plastic like i did.
Nice fish! Is there more chance for bigger fish dropping a pike down I think you mentioned at the bait grounds?
I got out here last week (note to self, swellnet is not always right!) and had two pike on the bait jig about 40cm, all that was left was a head of one. I know that wouldn’t be a Jew, but what you think that is out there Craig, tailor or mackeral. It was a bloody big chomp.
Yep, the bait grounds at dawn or dusk is your easiest path to a meter plus jewie. You need a live yellowtail though, a pike won’t last long enough on the bait grounds to get the attention of a jewie. The millions of small tailor and mackerel tear pike to shreds the second you place them in the water. They leave the yellowtail alone for some reason.
