The coldness and rain we have been feeling the last few days feels like we are smack bang back in the middle of winter. Now as excited bass fisherman we are! You won’t get any complaints from us or anyone else about the rain so let’s start with the river.

In the river although still very premature on the bass side of things the annual migration on bass and perch will be well underway by now. In fact places during winter we target perch have now gone more on the quiet side suggesting a more summer pattern. Places like Camel rock / Red rock or Longreach would be a starting point for me. Back down the front has been producing jew to 107cm on the ever faithful Squidgy Fish 100MM in black and gold as well as the usual flathead.

Red city! for anyone who fished for red over the weekend you’ll probably hear them say it was a wicked weekend with the snapper chewing their heads off. Boss man ( Gav) along with young Fynn Monahan and Dad Damien put in a few hours fishing soft plastics on Sunday morning with Fynn coming up tight on a new PB and not only did Fynn smoke a new PB his angling ability far exceeds his young age of 7, well done young fella! Gav said getting schooled by a 7 year old on the snapper gear was a bit demoralizing. On the flip side in a bit closer the water was a touch cooler and holding all the things we hate! Like leatherjackets, pike and barracuda. If you figured out fishing 1oz weights a bit deeper with big 7in soft plastics you were probably being rewarded.

The basin fished tough over the weekend but few anglers like Mick Coggins were rewarded with a trophy. Mick came in Friday afternoon throwing up ideas of what his weekend might be and his decision paid off with an 88cm crocodile from his hobie pro angler. As for how the rest of the year will go? Hopefully some follow up rain to really get the prawns fired up and running in turn keeping the predators happy to hunt our lures or baits. As for the rest of the basin it’s still fishing on the slow side of things but the saying goes drought on land drought in the water.
