Weekly Report 12 Jan 10

Well, it has been a treat to see some rain, and most of the local areas around Bundaberg received some well-deserved down falls. The tops of the Kolan River and Baffle Creek are running fresh so the fishing in these areas can be hard, but heading down river should see the salt water and the fish, such as jacks, trevally and queenfish. The fresh has also pushed the mud crabs out and down to the salt, so drag out the pots.

The Burnett River is fishing really well, with the only fresh coming into it being the run-off, so it is still nice and salty. The upper reaches have seen a few whiting and grunter. Mid-river around Kirby’s Wall has seen some big bream and flathead. The deeper holes and rock bars have seen some big jack, cod and fingermark and the odd jew. Also, these areas have been producing some good crabbing. The mouth of the Burnett is still producing some good sized school mackerel and tuna. The inshore reefs such as the Cochrane Artificial and the Two Mile are producing some small squire and some big grunter.

The offshore grounds have produced some great reef fishing. Trouts, reds, cod, sweetlip and parrot have all been put into the esky. The Spanish mackerel have been thick on some of the reefs with the Five Degree Patch producing some hot early morning bites by trolling gar and lures. Lake Monduran is still producing a hot barra bite. Fishing the points and flats with soft plastics has given great results. Also, some barra have been caught on the troll using 15-20ft diving lures. Bass in the smaller impoundments have been biting well with an early morning/late afternoon surface bite and during the day, using Blades and Jackalls in the deep.
Till next time, Tim Mulahll
