OFFSHORE
Oh the weather, it will not let us get a go at them, look small windows mean only the people set up and ready to go at a moment’s notice can take advantage of them and I’m afraid that’s just not me I need at least 4 days. But that’s enough about me the mackerel well last week they were at Hummocky and at Cape Capricorn then they were at the islands out front of Keppel Sands so that’s a real good sign for our doggie mackerel season which I hope is about to kick in……

AWOONGA DAM
Very quiet on the dam front and until we here reports of fish being caught backed up with photo’s it’s safe to say it will stay quiet…..

FITZROY RIVER
ROCKY BARRA BOUNTY THIS YEAR 2011 WILL BE THE BEST EVER WITH RECORD NUMBERS OF FISH IN THE SYSTEM IT LOOKS LIKE BEING A CRACKER…. SEE INSTORE FOR DETAILS OR GO ONLINE AT ROCKY BARRA BOUNTY .COM.AU We have started catching barra in the river and it all feels really good there are only 10 team places left so if you are thinking of entering please do so fast so we can process your team through the system…

CORIO BAY
It’s been a very good year so far for the estuary’s especially when it comes to flat head bream and salmon and Corio has been top of the heap plenty of fish up there and now its warming up expect that to continue. We have fished the bay more this year than in the past couple and the plastics have been killing the fish big time Castaic, number one closely followed by Atomic Guzzler.

COOROOMAN CREEK
Second only to Corio but it has had a lot more grunter in the system keep an eye out for the fingermark they will not be too far away as the water starts to warm up.

PORT ALMA
Last weekend saw plenty of boats on the water at Port Alma but this week end the tides will be bigger and the water will be dirty as the water runs hard try right up the backs of the creek there will still be a big bream or two around and there where heaps of Barra last weekend but with the bigger tides they will be harder. Still worth a go for a crab.

CAUSEWAY LAKE
Remember most of the fish are caught while the run through is on. Some good fish have come out of the causeway of late Trevelly, Jack, Grunter have all come from the last set of big tides that ran through so when next it runs give it a go remember no run no fun. The causeway needs a big tide to run into the lake 3.9 or better.

BEDFORD WEIR BLACKWATER (Matthew)
Above the wall the barra are on the chew taking mostly surface lures at dawn and dusk and the hot, still, balmy afternoons. Look for shallow still water or large stands of timber and cast your lures into these areas and sooner or later you will get a heart stopping strike. Shallow slow retrieved lures also work well during the day. Look for shiney silver or gold suspending lures with long pauses and sharp twitches. Toga are also on the prowl taking small surface fly and small surface lures such as the Ecogear px45's and bubble pops. Red claw are also around in massive proportions. Below the wall where the water may still be running yellowbelly are on offer as well as black bream and eel tail cat fish on bait. Lightly weighted fly sprayed with scent are catching some nice black bream and sleepy cod with the odd yellowbelly coming along. Red claw are also there in big numbers.

COMET RIVER (Matthew)
We have no reports from the comet…… Sorry.

CHARTER BOATS - KONOMIE DREAMING AND SPIRIT
