Fish Report – 27th September 2012

A few storms in the Bundaberg area early in the week put a bit of a local run-off into the rivers and creeks, but it hasn’t upset the fishing with most systems fishing well.

The Elliott River has been producing some top whiting, bream and flathead around the sand flats on yabbies and worms.

Some of the local river mouths are producing some hot GT and queenfish sessions on surface poppers, and some of the queenfish have been over one metre long. There are also a few school mackerel mixed in with them.

Up river there’s plenty going on with salmon, jacks, barra and grunter all being caught on both lures and live bait.

Offshore has also been fishing well for coral trout, red emperor, cod sweetlip and the usual mixed reefies.

The pelagics are pretty thick as well with cobia, mackerel, kingfish and even marlin all being landed.

Till next time,

Tim Mulhall.
