Hinze Dam ...winter into spring

#1 Post by Dodge » Thu Sep 27, 2018 8:43 pm

On a fairly regular basis a few older kayakers and mates in boats fish Hinze Dam and these pics show some recent results over the last couple of months, and usually a mix of lure fishing and bait among the tall timber practicing a mix of both fish for home and C&R.

Looking south on Hinze Dam
and 5 anglers along recently
Moving among the trees
after bass
In trees again
chasing another bass
In the last couple of days Qld Health has warned fish tested from the dam are high in mercury at present and now suggest use C&R approach for fishing there.

Yeah Dodge has it right, what a great place to have a fish and paddle or pedal. This is a real fun morning with some fishing, talking, joking and morning tea. If you're around give any of us a pm to find out when we're heading out. Les :grin:
It's okay not to be okay...
