Fishing Report - 7th July 2016

Well, another week has passed and unfortunately there will be no offshore fishing around the Bundaberg area, but the local rivers and creeks are all fishing really well.

The rivers are full of bait such as sprat, mullet and prawns, hence the bigger fish haven’t been too far away.

The upper reaches of the rivers have seen good numbers of large whiting, with the first of the making tide being the best tides.

Most of the rock walls and gravel beds are holding good numbers of big bream and grunter, and using well-presented baits such as mullet fillets or half a pilchard has been working well.

Good numbers of flathead have been caught off the sand flats, with soft plastics doing the trick. 

Rumour has it that a few prawns and crabs are about.  They are patchy but well worth the effort.

Lake Gregory has seen some good numbers of bass being caught, with most coming from the middle of the lake by using small metal blades or soft plastics.

Lake Monduran has produced a few big barra this week, with most points leading into the bays being spots to look at.  Most of the barra have been caught on Jackal Squirrels or Fuse Pulse Vibes, and this dam is only going to get better for barra as the weather warms up.


Till next time,
