Unfortunately the weather forecast for the Bundaberg area for this weekend doesn’t look the best with winds up to 25km/h expected to pick up from the southeast.
Luckily enough the local rivers have been producing good numbers of quality fish during the past week.
The Across the Waves Fishing Club had a great outing last weekend in the Burnett River.
It was fantastic to hear that there were a heap of large whiting to 40cm caught by using yabbies around the shallow sand bars, with Rubyanna and the area opposite Kirbys Wall area being the two hot spots.
By all reports most anglers managed to land a mixed bag.
Whiting, bream, grunter, flathead and a couple of mangrove jacks provided plenty of action all weekend.
The pelagic action on the inshore reefs has been awesome when the weather provides the opportunity to get out amongst them.
A few of the Tackle World Bundaberg team members got out last weekend and caught a heap of mackerel and grunter on spoons and Jackall Tranzam lures.
Unfortunately there were also heaps of sharks taking both fish and lures, turning it into an expensive outing.
The Elliott River is still the cleanest system in our area, and it’s also been fishing very well with whiting and flathead around the sand bars towards the mouth, and barra and mangrove jack around Shark’s nest further upstream.
This system can get extremely shallow at low tide, so just take care.
The Kolan River is still a little dirty upstream, but has cleaned up around the mouth.
Some nice jack and barra have been landed on live baits right throughout this system.
A few bream, whiting, flathead and some nice mud crabs have been caught by the tenants at Miara Caravan Park recently.
Lake Gregory bass action has slowed due to the colour of the water which is being pumped straight from the Burnett River into the impoundment, but this should improve soon.
Lake Monduran’s barra are also hard to tempt with only a couple of barra being caught this week. Hopefully this improves as we get closer to Easter.
Fish with confidence,
