    Tailor migration

    Hello raiders, OK, so I've read on the internet that every year during the winter months tailor from nsw migrate up north to Fraser Island to spawn. I've read that as they travel up north they might stop by the northern beaches along way. My question is: Does this mean the chance of hooking up legal size tailors in our estuaries during winter will be significantly reduced? Also, what happens to the tailors spawned in Fraser Island? Do they travel back down to nsw and enter our estuaries during summer? Thanks in advance! JewCraze

    Fish heads and guts for burley

    Hello again Connico Reading back your comment I have another question. In saying "It takes ages after that to get the fish back on the bite" are we talking about hours, days, or weeks? I went back a week after and it seems very quite. Not only did I catch nothing other guys there had no bites either. So I'm wondering if it's my fault (for attracting that shark) that no one else is getting any bites 😊😊?

    That could explain it. Thanks again for the info. I still have some yakka heads and guts in the freezer, might thaw them this weekend and mince and blend them into bread and tuna oil like you did.

    I'm wondering ... the stuffs you mixed with the minced fish heads and frames ... whether they absorbed the blood or masked the smell of blood that would otherwise ooze out from the whole heads / frames / guts ... and therefore the sharks are not attracted to the area.

    Thanks Connico, so when you minced the heads and frames you don't get hit with sharks? It's only when you used the whole heads and frames that you're hit with sharks? If mincing it and mixing (with bread?) could get around the problem I'd do just that but otherwise I'll stop using the heads and guts altogether.

    Fish heads and guts for burley

    Hi Everyone, I went to Balmoral jetty last night. I used yellow tail heads and guts for burley. I was hoping for a big fish and I did get a big fish, but not the kind of big fish I was hoping for. It's a baby shark about 70 to 80cm. I am wondering if the fish heads and guts with blood oozing out into the water only attract shark or do they also attract other fish? I'm mainly hoping for kingfish or jewfish, but would also be very happy with tailor or australian salmon, just not sharks and rays. Can anyone tell me if fish heads and guts as burley is a good idea? Also, while I'm trying to get a big fish my little boy was also fishing for yellow tail near by. There were a lot of yellow tail a few weeks ago and my two boys caught 17. But last night there were few yellow tail around. I'm wondering if it's because the season for yellow tail over or because of my yellow tail heads and guts burley which they can smell and therefore got spooked and went elsewhere? Thanks JewCraze

    Salmon oil as burley?

    Guys, I cooked atlantic salmon and there's a lot of oil from the fish. Wife hates oil (any kind) and asked me to throw away the salmon oil. I'm thinking ... would it make an effective burley? Has anyone tried?

    So, where do Jewfish go in winter? Do they go out into deeper water or do they migrate up north?
