Catching Jewfish | Fishing for Mulloway



Angling for Jewfish | Mulloway:

Jewfish or Mulloway (Argyrosomus hololepidotus) Photo

Also known as Mulloway, jewfish (NSW, Qld, NT); kingfish (Vic.); river kingfish (WA); butterfish (SA); silver jewfish, school jew

The mulloway has a range of common names, their usage largely dictated by geography. In New South Wales and Queensland the fish is almost exclusively known as jewfish, "jew" or "jewie". In Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia, the official name of mulloway is more widely accepted, although in South Australia the fish is sometimes called a butterfish or "buttery", while in the West it may be referred to as a river kingfish, silver kingfish or simply king. On the eastern sea board, juvenile mulloway up to about 3 kg are frequently nick-named "soapies", while fish from 3 to 8 kg or so are commonly called "schoolies"

Smaller mulloway mainly succumb to baits of prawns, worms, yabbies or fish pieces intended for bream or flathead. They will also take small live baits. Larger fish are best sought with live baits such as mullet, yellowtail, slimy mackerel, pike, tailor and sweep, or dead baits of whole or cut fish. Tailor, luderick pilchards and pike fillets are favourites in some areas. Squid, octopus and cuttlefish are also very good baits, especially if used alive or very fresh.

 

Despite their generous mouths, mulloway often fumble a bait or run with it for some distance before spitting it out. Using big, sharp hooks and being willing to strike while the fish is running usually give the best results. Periods of heavy rain and discoloured run-off are excellent for mulloway fishing. When floodwaters cause a distinct colour change in the water at a river mouth mulloway can readily be caught on lures. White, or red-and-white lead-head feathers, soft plastic-tailed jigs, large, strong-actioned minnows and so-called "chair-leg" poppers or darters are the favoured choices of "jewie" spinning specialists.

These fish may also be taken on lures at other times, particularly at night in and around the pools of light created under illuminated bridges, breakwalls and wharves or piers.
