Off to Fraser next week. Can anyone tell me what the bait situation is there. What do the fish take, and is it available on the island or do I take it with me. Any suggestions for good fishing spots.

If your coming up from NSW, you will need to remember bag limits on the fish you catch. If its tailor you will be targeting, the legislation has changed recently. Go to www.dpi.qld.gov.au and go into fishing section, they have listed all the fish and size limits and is the latest info.
Have fun

thanks mate. It'd be nice to get near their limit at some stage. That site also answered another question of mine. Looks like they havent got into the "support our fisheries licence (tax) yet"

You will find the majority reel in tailor with a pilchard on a gang hook (and lots, one every cast most often when on the bite), brim with pilchard pieces, and dart and whiting with pipi's and worms (for those talented people that can pull the suckers out, i can't). And the odd flathead will of course scoff anything that drifts past it.

IQF Pilchards (ie Individually Quick Frozen) are the best cause they are IQF and you can therefore defrost a few at a time rather than a block of 40 which go off in a couple days. A good alternative to Pilchards though is mullet flesh, my local vietnamese store sells eadible quality mullet at $2.99 each and i always take a few away - experts say the big night tailor go for strips of mullet flesh or bonito before a pilchard, will soon test that out.

Thanx Paul
I might give both the mullet and the pillies a go. Sounds more and more as though I'm just going to the northern end of Stockton.
