What’s Biting Around Bundaberg

Quite a few barramundi have been hooked up at Lake Monduran this past week.  Locating the barra with a side-imaging sounder gives you confidence that you are in the right spot.  Once you’ve found a point or bay with good numbers of barra on the screen, try using a few different techniques to get the barra to strike.  The most …

Once again, the small black marlin and sailfish have showed up in good numbers around the tip of Fraser Island.  We’ve heard …
