The past week has seen a constant blow of northerly winds and this slows down the saltwater fishing. But, on the up side, the freshwater fishing heats up.

The barra seem to prefer the northerly winds and it gets easier to catch them as they are more active. Casting to the backs of the shallow bays and heavier timbered areas should produce the goods. The best lures have been B52's and Tropic Anglers Large Floater.

Those who have persisted in the river have caught a feed. Some reasonable flathead and bream have been caught, with the odd jack also in there to test out your gear.

When the wind breaks there should still be a few mackerel about. There have been good numbers of school mackerel around, with some grey mackerel mixed in with them. One angler caught an 8kg beauty around the rocks at Burnett Heads using a Flasha lure. These lures have been by far the best for mackerel, as they have little colour but plenty of flash from the natural silver bait fish colours.

Reef fishing has been very quiet due to the strong winds, so hopefully there will be a break in the weather sometime soon.

Best breezes,
