With two significant rain events in as many weeks around the Bundaberg region, the chance to get out and wet a line has been limited.

The Annual Lake Monduran Family Fishing Classic was held last weekend. This is always a fantastic weekend and this year was no exception. Luckily enough the rain stayed away for most of the weekend and it was great to see quite a few nice barramundi and Australian bass being weighed in. I did hear that around 20 barra were caught on Thursday and Friday including 2 barra over the magic metre. Big thanks must go out to all the volunteers from the Monduran Anglers and Stocking Association (MASA) and the public that help run such a great comp.

There have been a few reports of massive schools of mac tuna and bonito right along our coast line during the past week. Casting small metal into these feeding fish and retrieving at high speed have been providing plenty of fun for local sport fisherman.

This rain should really stir up the mud crabs in the Burnett and Kolan Rivers and after every fresh-water flush the fishing normally improves over the following weeks.

During this week the first Coral Reef Fin Fish closure is in place between Tuesday 17th October 2017 and Saturday 21st October 2017 to allow our reef fish to spawn.

Let’s hope we have more to report next week once the closure finishes and the weather improves.
