Jewie fishing on Anzac Day 2017.

I headed out for a fish to target Jewies this morning . Everything was right , one day from the new moon , high tide at 7.10 am , and slightly overcast . Armed with my Flathead gear , 10 lb leader , 8 lb braid , 2500 reel , 2-6 kg rod . My go to lures , a soft plastic 5″ white jerk shad on a 1/4 oz jig head 3/0 hook size .

As I only had 2 hours before I had to go back , I decided to only fish amongst the moored boats in Pittwater . The technique was to cast out let it slowly drop to the bottom and rip rip to make the jerk shad look injured .

i started fishing at 6.15 am and for an hour and 10 minutes nothing ! Then just 15 minutes after high tide ,one hit a small soapie Jew 50 cm .

next cast another slightly bigger , then another on the next cast . Three in a row !. Over the 30 minutes till 8 am , I caught 6 small jewies , the biggest being 58 cm . Then as fast as they came on they stopped . Obviously a school of soapies appeared and went with the tide .

Then the pesky leather jackets appeared and ruined four soft plastics . I landed two in the boat hooked on the side . Even the live tailor I had out didn’t get a hit from anything .

The lesson is that if the tide and conditions are right you will get the fish , whether it be jewies , bream , Flathead or kingies .

Pittwater is fishing well . Have a look at the video of assorted shots of the various jewies .
