Fraser Island Fishing reportcourtesy of Sailfish Apartments, HappyValley: Ph (07) 41279494 - Reports of weed on the eastern beaches have madeit difficult to fish this week. The western beaches have fished well for flathead, bream and whiting.

Hervey Bay
Good reports coming into us earlier in week fromthe local fisho’s who snuck out on Monday. Staff member Dave fished with DaveHodge filming a new fishing/outdoors program out in the bay for a mixed bagof reef fish and school mackerel. Anglers fished the Fairway buoy for school mackerel, tuna andtrevally. Mac tuna still thick right throughout the bay butare still fussing over lures. Moon point north has seen school mackerel as well as the beacons around the bay such as the N U 2. One angler reported 2 juvenile black marlin cruising the shallows at Roonies. This
is good news forthe up and coming game fish tournament. Sweet lip and snapper in good numbers report off the car bodies at the Arty. School jew reported again this week from aroundthe deeper holes at the mouth of River Heads. There are a lot of jew undersize mixed in with the bigger fish so a measurement of 45cm or over is needto take one of these fine table fish home. Live bait and soft plastics fisharound the tide change should see results.

Reports of summer whiting coming from the Heads aswell. The big tides this weekend is prime whiting tides in the rivers, creeksand off the beaches. Fish with live yabbies or soldier crabs for those big elbow slappers. Salmon and cod reported last weekend in the Susan on live prawns. The Pier has seen mack tuna, mackerel early morning and some large shovel nose sharks taking the baits at night. Whiting, bream and the odd sand crab in the first channel off the pier. Flathead taking plastics at the mouth of theBurrum and Eli creek.

Freshwater Report.
Lake Lenthalls Report
Last week with the build up tothe stormy weather the bass were once again on the chew at Lenthalls. Anglersreport bass being caught on small Team Daiwa Pro Vibes and Squidgyspinnerbaits. Try working the shallow grassy bays and lily pads with a slow roll retrieve and the odd pause thrown in to mix it up. There are plenty of bugs on the surface at the moment so small poppers like the river 2 sea bubble pop are worth a try as well as the C’ultiva zip n ziggy.If your fishing off the bank, remember to work your lures right to the edgeof the lilies as bass will often hit you right in close.

Lake Monduran Report
Over the last week Monduran hasbeen fishing very well with some 400 barra being reported last week during the hot and humid conditions. Big fish have congregated in the main basin around the dam wall, this could be due to their instinct to find the saltwater and begin spawning. Fish have been trolled up in the main basin on both classic F18’s and RMG Scorpions. Useyour sounder to locate drop off’s with shows of bait and the barra will oftenbe sitting of to the side. Regular customer Andrew
Walsh found a nice dropoff and managed to troll up an 82cm, 94cm and 105cm in the period of an hour.The boat he was fishing next to also managed to pick up another three goodquality fish.
