Magic Weather and Fishing around Bundaberg

Hope everyone has recovered and enjoyed the Easter break this year. We were fortunate that we had some magic weather last weekend and by the sounds of things most people made the most of it.

The annual Burrum Heads Easter Classic was held last weekend and I’m sure everyone who attended had a great time and by all reports the fish were on the chew with some really nice flathead, whiting, bream and trumpeter all being weighed in. There were also some nice muddies caught up the creeks and prawns were patchy but worth the effort.

The Burnett River still remains one of the most consistent estuaries in our area. Over Easter it was awesome to see so many boats out enjoying the good conditions. Switched on anglers have caught good numbers of big bream, flathead, whiting, barramundi and blue salmon. Both bait and soft plastics have been very effective this week.

Good reports have come in from the Kolan River and Miara Caravan Park is always busy at this time of year, but it sounds like everyone is catching their fair share.

Some top flathead, whiting and trumpeter have been keeping everyone busy. Crabbing always seems to fire up over Easter every year and this year is no different with some top quality muddies caught.

By the photos I have seen, it looks like the barra at Lake Monduran fired up over Easter. Early mornings and late afternoons have been prime times to target these fantastic sports fish. Suspending lures worked super slowly, have been the key to get these barra that range between 80-110 cm, to strike.

Just keep in mind that the barramundi that are up around the magic meter are strong fish and fishing a little heavier than normal, for example – braid between 30-50lb and leader between 60-80lb will give you a better chance of landing a Monduran barra in the sticks.

Fish with confidence,
