FISHING: Anglers across the Fraser Coast kept to the rivers, creeks and estuaries this week to keep out of those strong winds. They were not disappointed with the Barra season now open and the fish on the bite.

Let’s take a look at the report this wee. The Burrum River was high on the hit list, with Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon and Mangrove Jack taken on suspending lures, soft plastics, and live baits around rock ledges and snags and quality Flathead, Bream and Whiting out on the sand flats. 

Buxton has also been performing well with reports of Mangrove Jack, Estuary Cod and Grunter, and a few quality Silver Bream landed in the Isis River. 

The Mary River is bouncing back quickly after the flood. Threadfin Salmon, quality Grunter, Silver Bream, Flathead and Whiting have all been caught between Beaver Rock and River Heads.  

A few die-hard fishos snuck out from Maaroom and sort protection from the estuary systems to catch large flathead, summer whiting, Mangrove Jack and a few quality Mud Crabs. 

The mouth of Tuan Creek has seen some quality flathead, while further up the creek has had reports of Mangrove Jack, Silver Bream and Mud Crabs. 

Boonooroo, Poona, and Swan Creeks are all fishing well with Mangrove Jack, Flathead, Estuary Cod, and Whiting reports. 

First up is Gary with a 1.2 metre Threadfin caught in the Mary – Yes, they are back after the flood.  
Next is Sonya, who was very happy with her Blackall. 
The Chapman crew got into Jack; Matt mixed the bag with his bream.  
Thomas had a ball fishing out wide. Nice Bludger Trevally, mate.
Lilly had an awesome day fishing with the family, landing this nice flathead.
