Leaders Sat 20/6

Post by RedDevil » Thu Jun 25, 2020 12:10 pm

So fished Leaders Creek for the first time in a while on the saturday just past.
Got to the ramp about 7.30am and after a bit of debate, decided not to pay and park within the camp grounds.
Headed straight out to the mouth and trolled around a bit for the outgoing tide without any success.
Heard stories of some big jewies being caught near the mouth so made the call to drop some squid baits down and immediately got some good bites. Well we didnt pick up any jewies but got some good salmon 8)
There was also alot of little pickers around and the usual powertail.
Dropped some pots and went exploring around. Pulled up at a Y junction and could only get tiny little jew fish (well i think they were) and there were a lot of them. through them all back as they were tiny.
Got a few mullets and tried live baiting to no success.
Checked the pots and moved them around a bit but only managed one crab the whole day.
All in all a nice day out on the water and definitely keen to suss this place out more. If anyone has any pointers on areas worth trying, that would be great! :mrgreen:
Sorry didnt take any pictures

Big barra and jewies are trolled up near the mouth. Often seen on sounder and not biting.

How did you go with the rockbar?

The rock bar is 100-200m down from the ramp. Jewies at the mouth are usually either leaving or entering the creek. It's a waiting game there. There is a few places in the creek where they sit and feed. One place is up the last creek on the right just before the mouth. Up there you will find a junction and the deepest hole in the entire creek. Use Blue Salmon or tuna for bait

From my experience, if you find the Blue Salmon, the Jewies aren’t far away.
Found many Salmon & juvenile Jew 30-40cm inside big Jewies when filleting over the years.
