Floods trigger jack attack

As we all know, Queensland has been getting its fair share of hardcore weather lately. In the wake of the worst floods and cyclones seen in over 100 years Queenslanders have suffered great hardship.

As a fisherman, sometimes just thinking about how the floods will affect the local fishing in the long term makes me feel somewhat guilty. But the good news is the fishing is starting to bounce back in a big way! I guess it’s a natural cycle of weather and that a “good flush”  really can clean out a system for the better.

Many south-east Queensland locals have been getting amongst some pretty red hot action very close to home. I was lucky enough to get amongst it too, by managing to land a ripper mangrove jack while casting lures off a creek bank last weekend. Brutal, violent and aggressive are all words that can describe a big jack encounter, but I think that strikingly beautiful is somewhat more suited. Fresh out of the water, all angry red and teeth, jacks are amazing fish.

Recent reports have also confirmed similar catches occurring from the Gold Coast to Noosa so what are you waiting for? While it’s hot and humid get out and catch a jack this weekend!
