Fraser Island Sojourn

Lyn and Neil just got back from an awesome trip to Fraser Island. The weather was perfect and the pelagics were really on the chew. Two days of non stop action, with the spotties feeding on baitballs and the offshore reefs packed with hungry trevally. Every now and again the weather and the fish all come together to produce trips that stick with you forever…this was one of those. Can’t wait to do it again!!
Check out our Facebook page for a link to video clip of the bait ball action.

Jigging Reefies

Lyn and Neil were out off the Cape recently trying out new jigs and slow pitch jigging tricks.
Snapper and Pearlies really respond to these specific bottom fish targeting techniques.

More Info About The New Stella SW Reels

Jones's tackle new stella swWe have had a couple of long plays with the new Stella SW reels and it sure looks like Shimano has moved the goal posts a lot higher. When you look at the presentation on our previous post you’ll see a lot of new claims and obviously it’s not just advertising hype, these are noticeable improvements. The new one piece bail wire is made of titanium and is the strongest most rigid bail we’ve seen. The old reel had a top class drag and this new one is even better, absolutely smooth without a hint of breakaway torque even at the highest settings. Handles, gears, rotors all made better and stronger along with increased water resistance, this is going to be one awesome reel!jones's tackle new stella sw

IMA Honey Trap 95S Back In Stock!

The small stickbait that started it all for us, is back in stock. IMA’s fabulous Honey Trap is a bit different to the normal stuff that we cast for Tuna and Macks. Honey Traps work just fine on these pelagics, but because they sink more slowly than things like Adagios and Bungy Casts, they have added usefulness in shallow water, either on the flats or over reef. A must have lure for everyone’s tackle box!

Cool fishing at Fraser Island

Lyn and Neil spent a few days in late January fishing some of their favourite spots off Fraser Island. Calm weather for a few days allowed for some fishing east of Breaksea Spit and as usual this remote spot turned up a few great fish.

All the fish were caught micro jigging or casting stickbaits and poppers. There has been a bit of a drop off in the popularity of micro jigs in recent times but their effectiveness and the variety of fish they attract still make them a must have in the tackle bag.
