i am certain this is nothing, because ive heard stories that are wayy cooler than this by far.
Sounds like a cracker sesh mate! The numbers are there, and it excites me as to how good the fishing will be in a few years to come when these fish have put on some weight and grow in length. I believe there was an awesome spawn back when the drought broke (2010?), which is why we are now experiencing an influx of jews in the 70-90cm bracket and some a bit larger in our systems. (Have a think about it).
Lol, I have also been hearing of some ridiculous sessions too where double figures of jews have been landed. 20-30 fish, and on lures! They have been in the bay too, not the rivers. With the falling water temps and recent rains, these fish may be starting to make their way into the river systems now in search of food. Often the baitfish will be hovering around river/creek mouths where the influx of fresh meets the salt, and you will find the jews are not far behind them picking them off.
Many thanks for sharing your story Chillicrab! Most jew hunters keep alot of details to themselves, as they have worked so hard to learn them in the first place.
All this talk is getting me a little toey. I've got a few tactics I want to try out from my tinny that I've been thinking about lately. Might see what happens this w/e, but not my preferred moon phase. As the ol' saying goes (maybe just a saying of mine)...I'm about due for a jew!!
