Lake Monduran is still firing but it looks like the weather for the Bundaberg area could go either way this weekend.
Anything can happen so keep an eye out for the latest forecast before deciding to head out.
The inshore reefs are still producing some very nice grunter. Early mornings and late afternoons are the hot bite times.
Working soft vibes and soft plastics off the bottom will get you the bite.
Also using squid and prawns as bait will get you the good results. There’s still been plenty of schoolie mackerel around as well.
Fast-retrieving Flasha spoons vertically off the bottom and trolling small hardbodies will get you into the mackerel action.
If you’re more into using bait, mackerel will always fall for a pilchard.
The Burnett River has been producing some very nice flathead.
Most of the flatties have been caught on slow-rolling paddle tail soft plastics.
You will be in with a good chance of hooking a mangrove jack as a by-catch as well.
There’s been some very nice sized late seasoned bream too.
Kirby’s Wall has been a standout spot.
Also, with the big new moon tides don’t forget to throw the crab pots in!
Lake Monduran is still firing and plenty of +80cm barra have been caught.
The shallow windblown points have been the place to find good numbers.
My favourite bite time is definitely first light in the morning so make sure you get up there nice and early.
Jackall Squirrels and Samaki Redics have still been the standout lures.
Remember to fish with confidence! You never know when that big barra boof will happen at Lake Monduran.
Kolan River and Baffle Creek
This weekend the Kolan and Baffle will be all about the mangrove jack and whiting. There’s been some awesome numbers of jack being caught.
Most of these fish are being caught on hard body lures and live baits.
The late afternoon incoming tides will be the hot time for your whiting fishing over the weekend.
Yabbies and beach worms are definitely the standout baits.
Coral reef fin fish closure
The latest Coral Reef Fin Fish Closure is from Thursday, 12 November until Monday, 16 November 2020.
