Bumper Borumba Dam bass sessions

borumba dam bass

At this first spot we caught about 10 fish. No big ones but it was good to see the fish were biting. After this, we headed up the dam to the start of the trees. This is where the fun really began. We found two locations where the fish were thick. I had recently bought a Humminbird Helix 12 sounder with Mega Imaging. This unit …

Tips for Moreton Bay winter whiting

Soft plastics that have been working best are Zerek Live Minnow Flash Wrigglies, Live Shrimp Hot Legs and Gobblers Curl Grubs. The darker colours have worked best because the water is somewhere from green to dirty depending on what part of the tide you’re fishing and also how big the tides have been.

Slow-pitch jigging tips

slow-pitch jigging

The first fish to come aboard with a new piece of jewellery was a good-sized grunter. It was high fives all round and a quick pic before it went straight into the Esky. With the first fish over the side, we all became a little more at ease and figured we might be in for a good day. Fishing these …
