Report 19/9/14

Post by subeditor » Fri Sep 19, 2014 9:40 am

Well, the warm weather has really started to kick in around the Bundaberg area with the past week bringing almost typical summer days. With this the water temperatures have risen and turned on some awesome fishing, with most river systems really putting on a show.
The Elliott River has been producing a great run of large whiting mainly on an evening run-in tide with most of the shallow sand flats around the mouth of the Elliott producing the bigger whiting. Worms, yabbies and small pieces of peeled prawns seem to bring the best baits. The Elliott has also produced some great flathead and mangrove jack.
The Burnett River is still fishing well for blue salmon, bream, flathead and some monster grunter. Most of these fish have been caught on lures with blades and soft plastics catching most of the fish. Most of the rocky areas throughout the Burnett have produced these fish.
The Kolan River and Baffle Creek have also come to life with the warmer weather with some great catches of grunter, flathead and some cracker jacks, with most of the rock bars and ledges producing the jacks. Live baiting with small poddy mullet has been a favoured method but some of the bigger jacks have been caught on soft vibes with Tranzams being the red-hot lure. Both the mouths of the Baffle and Kolan have also been producing some big queenfish and GTs. Throwing some surface poppers has been a great way to have fun.
The Isis Impoundment (Lake Gregory) has been producing some red-hot bass fishing with up to 20 bass caught per session. Most catches of bass have been caught by fishing the schools of bass in the middle of the lake by jigging small blades and soft plastics.
Lake Monduran has been producing some great barra fishing. The areas around the entrances to Section B have been the spots to catch a barra, using small diving hardbodied lures such as Jackall Squirrels and Lucky Craft Pointers. Slow-rolling them over the shallow points leading into the bays has been the favoured method. This seems to be where the warmer water is and the barra just love the slightly higher temperature.

Fish with confidence,

Dale Smith
