Report 28/08/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Thu Aug 28, 2014 11:52 am

At this stage the weekend weather around the Bundaberg area is looking like a great chance to wet a line, with light winds expected right through until Monday.

However, it looks like there will be a fair ocean swell running, pushed up from the large low pressure systems down south.

Good numbers of blue salmon have still been caught in the Burnett River during the past week. Live prawns and mullet baits were accounting for most of the catches. I’ve also heard of a few salmon caught on 30g Vibes as well as 4” and 5” Z-man soft plastics. The bream fishermen have also been landing some cracking fish with the North Wall and Kirby’s being two of the hot spots.

The water temperature currently is sitting around 21 to 22 degrees in the rivers so it won’t be long before species like barramundi and mangrove jacks start smashing our lures and baits.

All of our other local rivers from Baffle Creek to the Elliott River are well worth a try this weekend.

On the freshwater scene, the Lake Monduran barra are just starting to liven up as the water temperature slowly rises. The techniques that have been working well involve fishing shallow sandy points with wind and current flow pushing onto them. This will hold slightly warmer water with more bait activity. The hot lures like Jackall Squirrels and Y-Zuri Crystal Minnows and soft plastics in Fuze Barra Baits have been very popular.

Fish with confidence,

Dale Smith
