This weekend, Saturday, 15th and Sunday, 16th November, the Across the Waves Fishing Club 2014 Fishing Classic is being held at the Across the Waves Sports grounds in Thabeban Street, Bundaberg. There is over $40,000 worth of prizes and lucky draws, including two boat, motor and trailer packages to be won by some lucky entrants. This is always a great weekend and most of the Tackle World team members will be attending this year’s competition.

Since the Burnett River has been fishing very well lately, I’m sure that there will be lots of quality fish weighed in this weekend. Mainly flathead, grunter and quality summer whiting have been boated as well as a few jewies and salmon. Mangrove jack, fingermark and mackerel are smashing live and dead baits closer to the port.

The Kolan River has been another hot spot to target flathead and jack on bait and soft plastics. Jacks up to 50cm seem to be everywhere, but targeting rock bars and fallen timber in the main river and up Yandaran Creek has been producing some fantastic fish. The prawns seem to be just starting to show up and a few legal muddies are showing up in the crab pots as well.

On the freshwater scene, Lake Gregory has been on fire. The bass have been caught on many different techniques. Surface lures early are always a great way to start a session. Just working your poppers over shallow weed beds usually gets results. Once the day warms up try a little deeper using soft plastics, Jackall TN60’s, Spinnerbaits or Blades. Try working through different types of lures to see what the fish are going for on the day. Bundaberg Sportfishing Club released another 26,000 bass fingerlings in the lake last week, so this should keep this top little dam fishing well for years to come.

Lake Monduran is starting to shine. I’ve heard of a few reports of barra being caught last weekend. The water temperature is up around 26 degrees which is ideal. Fishing points with wind and current flow pushing onto them still seems to be very popular. Both soft plastics like 4” Zmans and Squidgie Slick Rigs, and hardbody lures like Jackall Squirrels and Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnows have been working well. Tackle World team members Tim and Matt helped release another 72,000 barra fingerlings into this magical lake last week.

Paradise Stocking Association is holding their Catch-a-Catty competition on the 22nd and 23rd November at Mingo Crossing Recreational Grounds. This promises to be a top weekend also with golden perch, silver perch, bass, eel-tailed catfish, spangled perch and gar all to be targeted. Lot of raffles and lucky draw prizes are up for grabs. Nominations can be made at Tackle World Bundaberg until close of business on Monday, 17th November.

Fish with confidence,
