Report Thur 28th Sept 06

Post by Brad » Fri Sep 29, 2006 6:14 am

Whiting are on the chew at the moment. On the pier the night sessions have proved very productive using live yabbies. One angler reported 18 in one night, and of good size, which is certainly a good catch.

The school mackerel are still filtering their way into the bay. Hot spots are around the fairway buoy and around most of the beacons. Keep in mind the green zoned BWN cardinal mark on the top of Big Woody is off limits now to all forms of fishing.

River Heads is producing good flathead at the moment, as well as the odd threadfin salmon, which are starting to emerge down that way as well.

With the warmer weather now upon us we should see some great action coming out of the impoundments. Dave has been fishing Monduran with great success over the past week. He has hooked numerous barra, one fetching the 90cm mark. He suggests shallower running lures in amongst the sticks around the upper reaches of the dam.

Lenthall’s should now be firing for bass and barra. Don’t forget you’ll have about four weeks left fishing for the barra then the closure will be upon us for another year.

C/- Fraser Beachfront Holidays at Pyungan Rocks Ph: 4127 9440

Please Note: Waters Closes to all forms of Fishing on Fraser Island – The Eastern Foreshore waters and waters within 400m out to sea from the eastern shore at low water, between 400m north of Waddy Point and 400 m South of Indian Head. Closed from midday 1st August to midday 30th September every year (fin fish only).

Jew at night are the go straight out from Pyungan Rocks at the moment. A 14lb beauty was weighed in earlier in the week.

There is weed creeping in around the gutters from about Pyungan Rocks through to Dilli Village. If you’re after a tailor, try the gutters around the Maheno through to Dundaburra.

Dart have been great fun at night in the gutters. Whiting have been very skittish due to the increased beach traffic, but one fisho got onto a school and bagged 38 earlier in the week around the Oaks area. If you’re particularly chasing the whiting you should still be able to pick up a feed.

Its holiday season and the tracks are dry and starting to get cut up a little, so caution is required while travelling. Please watch out for fishos and kids playing on the beaches. It’s better to slow down and take it easy. The mainland police are out in force as well as the local boys. They will pull you over if you are doing the wrong thing, and all road rules do apply while driving on the island.
