Monduran winter barra tips

AS most barra anglers know, the colder months can make fishing at Lake Monduran hard but not impossible, and for those anglers who regularly fish Monduran, many love fishing at this time of year. Some solid fish are still being caught, the only difference is instead of that big straw hat and an Esky full of cold drinks it’s a …

Lake Boondooma and Barambah fishing report

We’ve also got a pending world length record Australian bass of 51cm. This fish was caught from Boondooma, so it will be great to see this verified and in the record book for years to come. Lure fishers have had great success all over the dam, but particularly in the timbered arms. The Boyne and Stuart arms have produced very …

First yak-caught barra

It must have been one nervous fish in among these barra. As I continued up the bank I came to another section of lilies with a cutting through them. I dropped my lure towards the back of the cutting and it was almost instantly monstered by a slightly smaller barra. Fortunately it took off towards the middle of the river …

THE final qualifier for the Bluefin Teams series was run at Lake Boondooma and the fish remained on the bite from the March 21-22 Berkley Boondooma Brawl. With Easter just a week beforehand and an extremely competitive field, we were concerned the bass wouldn’t be able to handle the pressure, but if anything the fishing was better than at the …

Freshwater fix from a quick flick

Fun times at North Coast Fishing Bonanza

Changes to recreational fishing rules And with thousands of jobs on the line, creating more parks and closing existing ones will mean longer queues for the dole. Do the Greens really want NSW to become another Tasmania, which has just about become a welfare state. How many jobs has this radical group cost with its impact on the forestry industry, marine …

Work with the wind in Lake Monduran

If you hit the water and there’s a southerly wind, try the northern end of Bird Bay, the north arm of B, Insane Bay, top of the Two Mile and the western side of Jacks. Water temperature will not be a problem unless we have a long period of overcast windy days, because in February water temps usually hold in …

Hot Hinchinbrook action

fishing Hinchinbrook

A number of times I have been in the middle of a great jack bite when a boat has gone past and rolled wash onto the banks and the fish have instantly gone off the bite. I hope Santa Claus is good to you and your stocking is filled with fishing lures and apparel instead of socks and un-dies.  Raylene …

Lake Kurwongbah awesome for kayaking and fishing

kayaking and fishing

There is one flight pass in particular that shows a very low water level and many clues about where to start looking, taking notice of the now sunken rises and valleys. In my experience, the GPS on Google Earth will get you close enough to find what you are looking for once on the water. The fishing we have done on …
