The top water fishing has been great first up in the mornings and again late afternoon – Nathan Nitschink one that liked Bushy’s Top Dog !

We also had freelance journalists & photographers Jonathan Jones ( pictured above ) Chris Scurfield and Sarkis Join us on their way through Hervey Bay while on the hunt for some new material.

Chris Scurfield with his 1st kayak bass at 50cm – not a bad way to open the account !

Chris then followed it up with another 50cm fish when he joined us for lunch 

Spinner baits where definatley the go to lure once the surface bit tapered off !

The average size & quality of the fish has been fantastic with the majority all being in the mid-40’s +
