Report 28th Sept 05

Post by Brad » Thu Sep 29, 2005 5:34 am

This week’s weather has been exceptional, apart from the coral reef fin fish closure that started earlier in the week (27th September). That has put a dampener on reef fishing, but you are still permitted a feed of mackerel, snapper and grass sweetlip, and there has been a few of these around.

Mackerel, both spottie and school, have been moving along the coast. The inshore reefs are holding snapper and grass sweetlip.

In the rivers, the flathead are the most talked about, but most are oversized (70cm is the maximum) so these fish must go back.

Bream are in plentiful numbers and are of good size. The odd fingermark (golden snapper) has also been caught, some to 6-7lb, and these are NOT moses perch.

The Isis Impoundment is fishing well for bass, with Daiwa Jackalls being the hot favourite lure.

Monduran Dam is going great guns with heaps of barra being caught in the shallow bays and Bombers and B52's are the hot favourite here.

Don't forget, the Win Television Monduran Family Fishing Classic is on next weekend, 8th and 9th October. The entry fee is $25 for seniors and $6 for juniors 15 years and under, and includes camping fees and entry into all lucky draws. A Stocked Impoundment Permit is also required for all anglers over 18 and these will cost $7 for the week. The major prize is a boat, motor and trailer and there is a $1,000 cash prize for the heaviest legal barra caught during the competition. Entry Forms and Permits are available at Salty's.

Best breezes,
