Brisbane Waters

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any success lately in Brisbane Waters? I went out today and flicked plastics and vibes for ages with no results. I can usually get at least one flathead.

a mate was out last weekend and picked up a feed, but said he didn't get a bite for hours

I think he said the water was 18 at the rip and 21 at the top of paddys.

Welcome to the site Rod. I can see you’ve been here since last year and finally made a post.

There have been plenty of boats on BW of late but no reports on Fishraider.

Welcome aboard.

Try the Flats. I noticed a few boats around Woy Woy yesterday catching medium flathead.

G’day Rod where abouts you fishing? The fish are there, ive found once you find the flattys they are in good numbers you just may need to try a few different spots, we managed over 40 fish a week ago when the water was 23, fished this week and the water had dropped to 19.5 and only managed a handful. Pm me if you like more then happy to help with a few spots!!!

I went out brisbane waters Saturday morning and struggled. I was trying new techniques for most of the time (flathead on big topwater lures) which resulted in few strikes but no hookups.
When i did try flicking plastics in my usual spots for flathead i just couldn't get one, it was frustrating. Week prior i nabbed a couple of decent flatties and a 75cm king in the same spots.

Thanks mate, I usually go around Bensville or near the Rip targeting flathead. It seems like the tides haven’t been as big this year.

macca02 did you get the King inside the bay? I’ve caught them trolling along the rocks down towards Terrigal but never inside.

Thanks I always read this site. I’ve learnt heaps. I was pretty consistent catching flathead last year 1 or 2 a session, sometimes 3.

2 decent sized bream, 2 broke the line cause they swam under my anchor (felt like bream) 2 whiting and a pike as pointed out by another member (i thought it looked like a barracuda cause of the teeth haha - im a newbie) I put a post up but removed it cause i felt a bit silly 🤣 

All caught within the span of 2 hours but spent a solid 2 hours before catching nothing cause of the tides i believe. Unfortunately no flatties

I'm trying to find a spot closer to home so I'm trying the hacking in the next few days and have recently done a charter with Scotty Lyons out in botany bay
