Fish Report - 25th January 2012

Well, we have seen our share of rain in the Bundaberg area this week, which has put a nice amount of flow back into the Burnett River. This should kick the food chain along again.

Those anglers who braved the elements during the week caught some nice fish with grunter (javelin fish) being caught. Big prawns and sprat have been the best baits.

With the bit of dirty water now flowing down the river from the fresh, this has put the bream on the chew. Most of the rocky areas have produced some snodger bream. Live baiting in these areas has also produced some good jacks and fingermark.

Some ripper flathead have been caught by trolling the sand flats with any hot pink lure being a favourite.

The mackerel have started to move about our coastline. School and spotted mackerel seem to be the most common at the moment. Trolling Spoons and Flasha lures has been the way to go.

This Isis Impoundment (Lake Gregory) is still fishing well for bass and mainly by fishing the weed edges using Spinnerbaits and Blades.

Monduran has been producing some good barra. also by fishing the weed edges with small suspending diving lures worked slowly back to the boat.

Till next time,
