Some of the top local hot spots and our thoughts on fishing.The Barramundi are firing all around the Gladstone region and it is a great opportunity to get into a few. Areas to target these Aussie icons are Pikes crossing Calliope river, Boyne river, Gladstone harbour and the south trees systems. Many people are finding these both on live baits and lures around the deeper holes in and also up on the flats. Prawns are growing quite quickly and the crabs are on the move it’s defiantly worth taking the cast net and crab pots. There hasn’t been much opportunity to get offshore but there are still some quality fish coming off the closer reefs around Facing island, Curtis island and Rat island. Get out and catch a Barramundi.
