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
early morning or late arvo til evening is prime time, all though you can get them all day long some days  :)

Anybody reading this should make sure they are aware of restrictions pertaining to cast netting before going to some of the areas stated.
Good point, there is no use of cast nets in non tidal freshwater rivers, creeks, dams etc
 In my list though i have not stated non tidal influenced sections of river, all the areas i have stated are tidal influenced spots which raise and lower and even change direction of flow which makes them tidal waters .  ;)

I know you know Wes, but some don't.  I've seen cast nets being used at Twin Bridges, Savages and Kholo.  Just a reminder to people to check the regs.

Dont get me started on cast net laws, I was so pissed off when they brought in the their stupid change from allowed in tidal zones to not allowed in fresh. It was so simple for years, if the body of water went in and out with the tide, you could use your cast net. With the rule change to no in fresh, yes in salt, in 2011 I reckon you could have been fined for using a cast net anywhere in moreton bay there was that much fresh running down.

Now the rules even more ridiculous, with the "rules for tidal waters" stating you can use cast nets (no stipulation it must be salt), but the fresh water rules state cast nets cant be used in fresh water. So yes, those spots listed above, its probably illegal to use a cast net there if it has rained in the last week or so, if no rain, its probably legal. But as most fisho's dont carry a chemical kit to detect salt levels, who knows!

Rant over and soap box back in the corner! - Blame Dale  ;D

G'day Wesfish,

I'm keen to catch a bully for a feed.

I've mostly fished for them down at Wolfdene , saltwater side of Weir using live mullet, I'm in the process of buying another cast net. I managed to get my castnet hard stuck either on a big tree or concrete slab with rio. I tried to retrive it, bounce... bounce... bounce... rip ...rip ...rip... way too much damage, should have known better, I tied it up for later retrieval next day, someone else decided to help themselves....

Line I use is 100lb braid with 185 lb multistrand wire crimped onto a 7766D Mustad 6/0 hook. I caught two bullies over two days.

If you have a spare seat in about 2 to 3 weeks time, let me know, I'll chip in towards fuel.

Bondy
