Crowdy Beach Jew

12 posts in this topic

A weeks R&R with a mate up at Crowdy Head, staying in his holiday house overlooking the beach and ocean. The plan was reds from his boat and jew from the beach. Weather wasn't good most of the time, winds to 30 knots, seas to 4m but we went out in the boat when we could and dug the 4X4 out of the beach a few times. Nothing like some challenges to make the catch worthwhile.

Best was this 12kg, 1.05m jew caught with beach worms on a late afternoon high tide. A good feed of reds one day too.

This is now an annual trip so definitely looking forward to next year. Last year the jew was 7kg, this year 12kg, I'm gunning for +15kg next year. This year was especially satisfying as it was in daylight hours (just) and didn't need a 1am - 4am session like previously.

Beautiful jew there. Looks like it all came together.

Curious how you rig the beach worms up with you are targeting jew?

Good work!

As king worms are large, I used a 2 hook rig (5/0 + 6/0) on 30lb fluorocarbon leader. Large star sinker on a short leader attached to the main line with a running swivel.

Haven't seen these worms about on the Central Coast so have brought a pack back to try up at the Entrance beach. They are metho dipped and frozen. Toughens them up and doesn't seem to inhibit the fish.
