Queenfish aka skinnies. Queenies are found from around Fraser Island northwards across the top of Australia and into northern parts of Western Austrailian waters. Commonly caught between the 4gk to 6kg sizes but they can grow in excess of 15kg Often found in rivers,creeks around shallow reefs and rocky headlands. Overhead or spinning outfits in the 4kg to 8kg range or 8* weight fly gear. Fast retrieves with poppers and metal spoon lures are most effective and dead drifting the fly around headlands on a rising tide can work well.
