Lure of the week
The Old Faithful Squidgie Slick Rig
The incredible success of the Squidgy Slick Rig range even took us by surprise! Turns out anglers everywhere love an integrated hook-and-weight plastic that can simply be tied or clipped to the end of their line and fished? No rigging, no tweaking, no guesswork. And it turns out that fish love them even more! While nowadays an established barramundi classic (in both salt and freshwater), there's also a Slick Rig made to catch anything else that swims and eats smaller fish. Truth is, these things are almost too good! Find them here: Squidgie SlickRig
Cooby fished quite well over the weekend with some good fish caught, the bank fisherman taking advantage of the low water levels, salt water yabbies and frozen prawns getting most of the attention. Other anglers getting some good catches of smaller cod trolling the shallower weed beds around the edges, Shallow Diving Hardbodies and Tn60's have caught their fair share of both Yellow Belly and Cod. With some rain we should see this lake realy fire up as we get into the warmer months.
Good Results coming in and consistent catches of big fish, the morning bite is the stand out this week, by 10 am most of the fish are spreading out in the deeper water, targeting these fish on the larger points in the main basin with spoons and soft plastics has been the go too. Trolling deep diving Hardbodies and 5/8oz spinnerbaits through the deeper water column once the schooled fish move has been a great tool for searching and locating.
A definte rise in fish catches these past few weeks, the deeper fish have certainly turned it on down the southern end of the lake, The Spit has fished well of an early morning, spoons and plastics being the go too, through the day the fishing has been a little tougher as the fish are tending to get very tight to the bottom, Pelican point and red rock have good fish holding on the shallow flats, trolling has worked well. Still good numbers of fish hanging out on the kirkliegh flats.
