Nathan with his First Barra on his holiday.
With Kris Chasing Cod this weekend at Copeton and Nathan chasing Barra WHO WILL OUT FISH THE OTHER?
With Rainy Conditions most of the week a few anglers poked out and still caught respectful numbers of fish, still trolling above the weed in front of the sailing club has accounted for some great yellow belly and the odd undersized cod. Small Hardbodies or Lipless Crankbaits have worked well in these areas. The bait anglers also having great success on salt water yabbies and worms in the deeper water during the day.
Still Consistent bite times out on the lake with the afternoon being by far the pick of the times, the main lake points in the basin are still producing the numbers of fish, targeting these fish with either plastics and spoons being the stand out lure once again.
Last weekends Bass Nation round held on the Lake had theanglers grinding it out for their fish, The Spit, Polly Point and wide off Bay 13 holding the numbers of fish, targeting these fish tight to the bottom was a battle in the strong winds, anglers even catching there fish on spoons up too 60 grams. With a slow rise in water temp and water level this week the Red Claw have been on the move with great captures during the week.
Most definitely the most in-form dam at the moment with a lot of anglers catching big numbers of fish, the flats between Billy’s Bay and Platypus Cliffs are holding fish. Some Great Yellow belly also being caught targeting the steep rock walls in the basin with Lipless Crankbaits and smaller Spinnerbaits.
Very Consistent over the past few weeks and it continued to fish well during the week for the fishermen that braved the weather, anglers easily getting there limits trolling on the edge of the creek bed with some great cod picked up as well, trolling larger Spinnerbiats has accounted for most of the fish, The bait anglers have had good success on Saltwater yabbies and worms.
With a rise in water Temperature in the last week the Mac and Longtail Tuna have been cruising the shallow flats of Moreton Island, casting Stickbaits, slugs and Larger plastics is your best bet of getting a reaction from these speedsters, the Southern end of the bay has fished well for snapper and the odd Jew, Large Blades and Soft Vibes have worked well on these pressured fish.
