http://www.reefari.com Big double hookup video on Queenfish on surface poppers and Stickbaits. Queenfish are an awesome sportsfish and great fun on poppers, Stickbaits and high speed slugs/lures with spectacular surface strikes. These were big fish, both around the 7.5kg mark and a great catch. Queenfish will get bigger, with about 10kg as big as they grow. My Personal best is 9kg, but have landed a 10kg fish years ago of Fraser island on a big livebait. They can be caught by a variety of ways including trolling lures, casting and generally on livebaits, rather than fleshbaits. Generally use a smaller popper or stickbait for queenfish, with the surface splashing driving them crazy, imitating a baitfish in distress. Metal slugs also work well with a high speed retrieve across the surface. The lure was a Sebile popper in this video.
Awesome Video with some great scenery as well around the Whitsunday islands. Any rock, headland, bommie and even shallow beaches is well worth a cast of a lure fishing for Queenfish. Look out for skittish baitfish as well, as no doubt the Queenfish won’t be too far away, or Giant Trevally which will smash lures as well.
