Last weekend saw some much needed rain with most areas around town receiving substantial falls. Hopefully our rivers will benefit from this.

Although the strong winds kept boats from heading offshore the fishing in close has been great. The winter whiting have been thick out the front of Burnett Heads, with a lot in the 25-30cm class. These make a very tasty feed, but please remember to take only what you need as this gives you a good excuse to go fishing again. Squid, yabbies and prawns have been the favoured baits.

With the rain, all the run-off drains into the rivers and they have been gushing with sweet water and this has pushed all the bait fish into a bit more open water where the predatory fish have been rounding them up for a feed. Species that have been caught around the bait balls include some good salmon, tailor, trevally, queenfish and the odd big grunter off the bottom.

Also the summer whiting and some very large flathead have still been cruising around. The bream have still been thick around the rocks and chook gut has been the preferred bait.

Down around the river mouths there is still plenty of action trolling spoons, Flasha lures and chrome minnows. The guys have been taking some good tailor and mackerel. One lucky angler also landed a 15kg Spanish mackerel in the mouth of the river when trolling Flasha lures for tailor!

Monduran has been producing some huge bass, and good numbers of them since the barra have slowed, but those who put in the time and effort have caught one or two barra a day. The bass have been caught on small trolled minnows that dive to 12-14 feet.

Best breezes,
