Rivers and inshore reefs producing cracker fishing

Fishing rivers
Fishing: Ashton Anderson with a nice bass caught at Lake Gregory.

The team at Tackle World Bundaberg say fishing in the region has been red hot, with the rivers and reefs producing some great catches.

The inshore reefs are starting to produce some really nice snapper.

I’ve heard reports of a few being caught over 80cm. My favourite bite time for them is at very first light.

Working Samaki vibes through the bait always gets the bite for me.

Also, slowly sinking pilchards and squid down will get you some live action.

Remember, the snapper don’t just sit on the bottom all the time, I’ve caught most of my snapper higher up in the water column.

The spanish mackerel and tuna are still around as well.

Fingers crossed the south-westerly winds will let us get out early in the mornings this weekend.

Burnett River

The Burnett has been fishing and prawning red hot this week!

Some cracker sized blue salmon and grunter have been caught as well.

The grunter have been taking a liking to Gulp soft plastic’s and live sprat.

The bluey’s have been smacking the 20g and 30g vibes being worked back to the boat on the bottom of the tide.

The prawns have been plentiful as well.

They have been mostly caught in the deeper holes in the system at dead low tide.

Don’t forget to throw the crab pots in as well as the new moon tides will get the crabs moving this weekend.

Baffle Creek and the Kolan River

Baffle and the Kolan River fishing has been producing some really nice whiting and bream.

Fishing the late afternoon incoming tide with beach worms or fresh yabbies will get you a good feed of whiting.

As it gets dark, I like to move right up on the sand bar and fish super shallow.

The bream have been smashing small soft plastic’s and small prawns at high tide right on top of the rock bars.

The crabs and prawns have been plentiful as well so don’t forget to throw the crab pots and cast net in.

Lake Monduran

There’s been some nice barra being caught over the last couple of weeks.

Most of the barra that have been caught have been over 80cm.

They are mostly getting caught in the shallows on Jackall Squirrels and larger sized paddle tail soft plastics.

Remember to fish the wind-blown points and keep an eye on your side scan for barra cruising past and the changes in the water temperature.

COVID-19 restrictions

The Queensland Government health directions from 15th May 2020 states Queenslanders are permitted to leave their homes (principal place of residence) for recreation within a 150km radius – for day-trips only.

Gatherings of up to 10 people are permitted for outdoor non-contact activity.

A reminder to abide by the social distancing regulations and practise good hygiene.

For further information, visit: https://www.covid19.qld.gov.au/government-actions/roadmap-to-easing-queenslands-restrictions which will show Queensland’s Roadmap to the easing of the COVID-19 up until July.

These restrictions may change at short notice if there is an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.

Till next time, keep it real
