i have chased the sharks in the bremer and brisbane river since i was a kid, they are great sport on light spin out fits and every summer the numbers in the upper tidal sections of both systems increases dramatically . live herring, silver biddies, bonies, mullet and chunks of fresh water eel do the trick. 9/0 circle hook on 90lb nylon coated wire 50cm long swivel 60lb mono leader 60cm then mainline 20lb braid.

Do you use a float of any sort to keep it higher up in the water colums???

nah i never use a float, if i am in an area with little to no flow i use no sinker and let the live bait swim where ever, if there is flow i put a light ball sinker on the mainline and slowly lower the live bait out in the flow and get it down about half way. try and keep it off the bottom to help avoid eels, crabs and catties.
are you keen to get into a few?

cheers, yeah fairly close to the junction, i use the cast net to get live bait from sandy banks with no trees. i am seeing pics of some good bully action down below the second weir at mt crosby at the moment, some other land based spots to try are johnsons rock, downstream colleges crossing, scout camp allawah , riverside old boat ramp, kookaburra park(when it opens finally),priors pocket lake (good low tide spot at entrance of lake on southern bank) , moggill ferry on the moggill side, Bremer river Keith street back of bundamba, cribb park , riverlink , woodend, brassall, shapcott park. these are a few good options all worth a go at the toothy critters  :) some other options for bait are chunks of freshwater eel  :thumbsup or bread under a float for mullet, live catfish or legal bream and bass  :popcorn) ;D ;D

what time do you normally head out to get them? or will they be on all the time. where is a good place to throw in the the cast net to get the live bait. do you use burleigy or any sort of tuna blood or any thing. thinking of heading out to the junction at 11 to try our luck.
Cheers heaps for your advicte

Anybody reading this should make sure they are aware of restrictions pertaining to cast netting before going to some of the areas stated.
