Never fished for them before though. I have heard corn is a typical bait.

Can anyone shed some light on what works... baits... rigs etc?

I'd like to get my daughters out with me to catch a few over the cooler months.

One last thing... once dispatched and back at the ramp, where do you dump them?
Obviously not back in the river, where though?



Carp will eat most things. Corn is really a summer bait for them. Bread or soaked dog biscuits, worms etc.

As for disposal if your near mud crabs buy some traps and use the carp as bait.

Sounds like a plan mate!
I haven't landed a Jew of any size yet, have heard they pull real hard!
I'm looking at an area with oyster racks up the central coast next w/end for some Bream action!

I dont kill fish for myself but if someone asks me for a Flathead ill despatch it for them but not for the freezer.

That being said, I would never judge anyone on what they decide to keep as long as its within the rules.

Hi Tbone,

Good to see that you are as mindful of the preservation of fish stocks as I am. You will be pleased to know that I fish for wild Bass up to two times a week during summer and I haven't taken one for the table for probably 15 years, I also use barbless hooks just to be friendlier to them.

When it comes to Jewies I am usually more than happy to take a few for the table. One thing with these fish they freeze beautifully for feeds over the coming weeks and not a speck of flesh is wasted, my kids like eating fish better then snags.

Mostly I like to see the Jewies eaten fresh and are usually spread out over my family, the in laws, grand mothers etc.

There were only three fish in the photos not four, and now I think of it one of the fish was taken last winter, not in this one. Don't worry though Tbone, I look forward to nothing more then taking my children (when old enough) fishing for these magic fish and showing them what their grandfather & great grandfather taught me; how to gather a healthy feed without going to the supermarket all the time. Tight lines mate, hope the Bass gods are kind to you this summer.

A very composed response there Troy, very well written mate and your kids are lucky to have a Dad that not only can teach them how to fish, but also how to respect and preserve this fantastic resource we are lucky to have.

Tight lines mate, looking forward to hearing more from you when the season kicks off in Sept.

Hi Dishley,

Thank you for your kind comments mate. I plan to contribute a little more to the site this year, I am guilty of being a silent member for the past year or so.

Attached is another fish I took last winter, my daughter kept hassling me to hurry up and cook it so she could have her "Jewby Snacks" for tea that night.

Cheers and all the best for the warm months ahead.

Not judging just parsing my thoughts. I like to catch jewies off the rocks "central coast a long time ago" and will again one day.
