Simple rig for Coorong Mulloway in boat

Recommended Posts

Heading to coorong next weekend for first try in a boat. What rig should I use? Assuming the mulloway will be smallish but legal size.

Will be using Pilchards I guess. No time for live bait. May give plastics a try but I'm a newby - so advice welcome.

Ezyrig running on main line, rolling swivel with or without clip pending your preference. 1 foot approx sinker dropper a bit lighter than your main line (sacraficial), 3 foot approx trace with a 4/0 circle or 2 snooded on 40-60lb fluro, maybe a glowbead if your into that (I love em, pretty). For the lure trace of about a metre of 20-40lb fluro attached however you like should do the job.

Good luck.

I fished the Coorong coupla weeks back and mullies were readily taking 3-4 inch plastics on a 1/4th jig head. could fish a lighter jig but that was all i had that suited the size of the plastic. Ended up with 9 in about 4 hrs ranging from 30-65 cm

Cheers MrFish! I'd like to give plastics a go - I will have a look at what I have and get back to you (wifey buys me random stuff for gifts cos it looks pretty) . Can you be specific about the brand/model you used? Maybe I already have something similar. You meant 1/4 ounce jig heads?

Thanks but I'm having a hard time picturing that! I've never used ezyrigs either. Is this close to what you are saying which I found here: http://wp.fishingmonthly.com.au/2019/12/06/mulloway-we-will-fight-them-on-the-beaches/

Yep, that's pretty much it. No need for a shock leader, that's more for surf casting. Ezyrig just does the job of the running swivel in the pic. I used running swivels myself previously but found the ezyrigs kinder on your connecting knot and mainline. I also found i got least tangles with a 3:1 trace to dropper ratio and prefer the lengths i mentioned earlier, circle hooks are another personal choice but I'm telling you once you get the hang of them you wont go back.
