Warmer weather = Hotter fishing

#1 Post by SpiritFisha » Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:43 pm

As the weather starts to warm up in the Bundaberg area so it seems does the fishing. Went out last Saturday morning for a paddle on a local creek and got some nice Mangrove Jack, Flathead and Queenfish. Missed out on a photo of the Queenie, which would have been close to the 90 cm mark, when the GoPro battery died on me. Looking forward to the upcoming long weekend and hope to post a few pic's next week, if I'm lucky. With all the fishing options in our area it is sometimes hard to make decisions where to go but the plan is to hit the fresh to see if I can entice a Barra/Bass and the estuary for some Jacks/Flathead and maybe get that Queenie that was a bit camera shy last time...
