Fish Report – 26th April 2012

The past few days around the Bundaberg area has seen some reasonable weather, so a lot of the larger boats ventured out to the offshore reefs.

The occasional spanish mackerel has been caught, but mainly bottom dwelling fish such as red emperor sweetlip parrot and hussar.

Blue salmon have been reported along the coastline, as well as schools of mackerel and tuna.

In the estuary systems, the Burnett has been fishing quite well for whiting flathead and bream with the occasional nice sized trumpeter being landed.

Mangrove jack are still being captured in the Baffle even though the water temperature is staring to plummet.

The occasional crab has been turning up in pots around the local area as well.

The odd barra is still being captured at Lake Monduran, with some of these fish reaching 80cm in length.

Lake Gregory is fishing very well lately, with early morning and late afternoon being prime times.

Good fishing,
