South east Queensland has some of the best estuaries for fishing.When fishing estuaries you must consider the time of day,tides,structure.So what i am going to do here is a basic break down on where,how and the most common fish to catch in estuaries. Bream are the most sort after fish to catch in estuaries and one of the easiest to catch,the best way to chase them is to fish around structure,bridge and jetty pylons and rock walls with a running sinker rig on a run in tide late afternoon or early morning with mullet,chicken gut,prawns,worms for bait. Flathead are another very common species to chase in our estuaries.The best way to go about this would be fish the last of a run out tide through out the day along the edges of sand banks with strips of mullet,pillies and whitebait.Flathead are also a good fish to catch on lures so what you can do is to walk along the river edge casting small soft plastics. Whiting are another common species we catch in our estuaries and i find fishing for them at night time usally gets me better results.So what we do is fish on top of the sand bars with a bit of sea grass on them.We fish the last of the run in tide with a running sinker rig with soldier crabs,yabbies and worms for bait. TIP: Go out the day before and gather as many soldier crabs as possible and then mush them up in a little bit of sand and use for burley. TIP 2: The biggest mistake i see people do when fishing from jetties and brigdes is they try and cast as far as possible away from the bridge,jetty there fishing from, WRONG DON’T DO THAT! and here is why,pylons are structure will hold small bait fish and where you find bait you will also find the bigger fish that are feeding on the bait. For best results in estuaries fish next to the pylons or cast under the jetty or bridge not out into the middle of nowhere.
