OFFSHORE Bundaberg fishing With the smaller tides this weekend, reef fishing should be on in the deep and shallows. March and April are a couple of my favourite months of year for chasing big red emperor, so be sure to drop some big flesh bait down around the 40m mark.

Coral trout have definitely been the standout fish, caught in good numbers offshore.
