Catching mulloway jewfish on the Gold Coast

We are lucky enough to see mulloway jewfish on the Gold Coast in all months of the year.

These often large fish are fun to catch & great to eat, with a high flesh yield that freezes well.
Although we can catch them most months of the year, and they definitely have a pattern to their bite times and places, they’re actually quite a random catch, usually on the same methods we use to catch other species like cobia, snapper and mackerel.

Tips to catch mulloway jewfish on the Gold Coast

  • Use large fleshy baits, either dead or alive, near the bottom
  • Use a leader that will withstand their rough mouth/teeth and abrasion on structure
  • Use circle hooks and wait for the rod to load up. Set the hook with a steady wind, not a strike.

So, don’t delay!
