    12 months of estuary fishing - Yamba - Caboolture river - bribie passage

    hi all,

    Pretty bored,just waiting for 2 pac to dry on my motor,so i thought id post a few pics from the last 12-18 months from Yamba-maclean-caboolture river.

    nothing spectacular as i only chased flatties for the year,while i honed my plastics skills.

    all of these (except jack)were caught on a shimano mexican raider 2-5kg and a daiwa legalis 2500 with green Sunline pe 8lb with 10lb fluro

    No bait here,all plastics only except for the Jack,he hit a bottle squid during a storm.

    Unfortunately all fish in photos were harmed and eaten by my dad who loves them,But rest assured,i do my thing for the system/fishing stocks and threw back around 10 flathead over 65cms that had a gut full of bubs and a couple of hundred 30cms-40cms that i didnt need after having enough in the esky.

    yes,im also aware of the 5 fish per person rule,i always had enough people on board to accomodate the rule.

    it had been a great 12 months for me until around november 2011 when they dried up.Im now focusing on jew and jacks.

    I also chucked in a pic of me and my brother,will never forget that day,i was at yamba and didnt take my boat due to trailer being rusted,after arriving i was told the jews were very thick on the middle wall at yamba,so i hustled a 10ft flat bottom boat of my father in law,a few life jackets and set to it.My brother is 6ft 3in - 130kg,im 6ft 115kg plus our fishing gear,jackets,oars etc etc.made for a very interesting trip out to the middle wall,not much freeboard left,We had to lean the boat every time a wave come,the things you do for a fish hey.

    Anyways,hope you enjoy and would love to see similar posts.

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Mate that middle wall offers awesome fishing. We fished there with yabbies late one afternoon near the gap in the wall, ended up catching everything from jew and tailor to bream and flathead, even blackfish on the bottom. It pissed down around dusk and i think we headed back to our townhouse on 'the peninsula' yamba about 3am. Was too good to leave !

    yeah its very handy. and the river is in your backyard, with yabbie banks a stones throw away. I was headin there next month also, but now I'm gonna try Woody Head for a change.

    Its hard to come over after a week or 2 at the mouth of the Clarence

    Great job, I'd be happy to catch just one of any of those fish in a 12month period. I've been fishing around Central Queensland since 2002 and I would not have even caught 1/8 of the fish in those photos.
