JACKS DO BOOF

Post by ponyplay » Sun Apr 10, 2011 9:23 pm

Well after being very slack with the camera since i moved over this way, i thought id better contribute sum thing to the forum so i took the camera along got few snaps of a trip this afternoon. Been doing fair bit of fishing but lets face it a report with no photos is not much chop unless your fishing same area.
Been doing alot shore based fishing , huge schools of salmon are turning up atm, along with school jewies in the creeks and endless amounts of jacks in the rocky creeks.
Went for a flick to a spot yest afternoon and managed a salmon few cod and jack. But wat got me interested was a huge amount of surface action on the other side of the bank. So plan was try find away across there today and see if this slapping and boofing was that of a jacks . To answer my question it was that of jacks and estuary cod. It appeared the jacks made more of a slap like rabbit trap noise where the cod where boofing similar to that of barra. Managed to con one jack into a fizzer to confirm my thoughts.

Wadeing threw these creeks still gives me the creeps, even if the croc population is ment to be zilch :| waters nice clear so should see one coming :roll:

Got few cod, they sure do hit hard in shallow water good fun

Greedy buggers to

Manged to land six jacks got one on a fizzer alot fun, and got toasted by 4. Useing x raps is proably not the best idea :banghead: need sumthing cheaper

good old slapper Nina from preston england, large & in charge used to boof like there was no tomorrow. But 120kg tends to tire you out rather quickly...

Top stuff Kurt, Its great fun living out in the sticks doing that cr.p. Jacks are great fun, especially on fizzers. My best lure for Jacks when I was on the Tiwis was an 80mm Tilsan in the red barron colour, get yourself one.

I bet you cant wait to get that hornet on the South though.
