Making the metre barra club

metre barra club

SCHOOL holidays are possibly not the best time to be out fishing, with increased traffic at boat ramps and on the waterways, however we made the best of this busy period by heading north to Lake Proserpine (Peter Faust Dam). The journey was timed beautifully on New Year’s Eve when we left our home on the southside of Brisbane at …

Monduran barra

HI all, Lake Monduran has been fishing well, with loads of good Monduran barra put on the deck. Many of my clients have caught plenty of barra on their charters. I’m still using B52s, Happy Rock Softies, Maria and Saruna lures. Each lure needs to be worked in its own way as not all lures swim the same. The wind …

Freshwater fishing in the South Burnett

freshwater fishing south burnett bass

Lately I’ve been catching my best-quality fish suspended in deep water. They have been sitting in the thermocline at 4.5-6m. I target these fish using a variety of baits, initially starting with a soft bait of a 1/2oz-rigged soft plastic. I cast this out and count to seven to let the lure sink into the strike zone. Once the plastic …

During the heavy rain just two weeks prior to the trip, immense amounts of water had gone over the dam wall. Even so, we were still keen to give it a crack. As we arrived at the dam, a massive storm rolled through and we had to wait it out before hitting the water. We launched the boat at about …

Magical Lake Monduran barra

We hit this area hard because of the consistent water temperature. In this section you can find numerous small points with bushy trees in 1-3m of water and water lilies along the edges. These points were by far the standouts. Dad and I located four points holding barra thanks to our Humminbird Helix sounder with Mega Imaging. Once we found …

Bumper Borumba Dam bass sessions

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 …

Smaller bass in big numbers at Somerset

Some fish have been hooked in 5m of water and deeper throughout the day, however the majority are coming from shallower water. The fish have not yet started to school in big numbers but several smaller schools of fish can be targeted.
