The past week has seen constant windy conditions which has affected the saltwater fishing, and not in a good way. But, on the up side, the freshwater fishing has not been too bad.

Those who have persisted in the river have managed to land a feed. Some reasonable flathead have been caught, with the odd jack as well. A few big cod and fingermark have been caught on livies such as mullet and sprat.

When there is a break in the wind, there should be a few mackerel about. There have been good numbers of school mackerel around, with some grey mackerel mixed in with them. Lures have been by far the best for mackerel as they have the best action and plenty of flash.

The barra in the impoundments and dams seem to prefer the northerly winds and it is a bit easier to catch them as they are more active. Casting into the back of shallow bays and heavy timbered areas should produce results. The preferred lures are Tropic Anglers Large Floater and the old favourite, B52's. Trolling in the main basin of Monduran has also produced some big barra to 100cm on Barra Classic lures.

Some great bass fishing has also been done in the early hours of the day by using surface poppers. Dark colours such as black and purple have been a top colours. As the sun rises, Spinnerbaits around the weed edges has been the preferred option.

Hopefully we will see a break in the weather soon, and we can get back into it.

Best breezes,
