Keep in mind that the second Coral Reef Fin Fish closure will be in place next week from Monday, 9th …

Last chance to target barra

The Kolan River would probably be my pick for chasing a barra or mangrove jack this weekend.  Casting soft plastics and suspending hard body lures over rock bars and at any structure you find should trigger a strike. Once again, the small black marlin and sailfish have showed up in good numbers around the tip of Fraser Island.  We’ve heard …

Bundaberg Rivers the Place To Be

With fresh southeasterly winds once again predicted for the Bundaberg area to spoil any offshore action this weekend, it looks like any fishing for the last weekend of the school holidays will be restricted to the Bundaberg rivers and impoundments.

Bundaberg rivers in transition

With the first signs of summer starting to show up, the warm northerly breezes are starting to lift the water temperatures around the Bundaberg area.
