Fish Restocking / Acclimatisation and Environment / Re: SWFSA Inc. milestone
« Last post by Member on November 09, 2020, 02:18:52 PM »
So Fitz, does Somerset fish better purely because its a smaller dam than Wivenhoe or are there more finglings put in there as more sips are sold for that dam?

Does Somerset fish better than Wivenhoe? I don't think it does.

Somerset has far more fishing pressure for a few reasons:
- Unrestricted boating type & speed.
- Multiple lanes of boat ramps covering more water levels.
- More consistent water levels.
- Loads of tourist park options. Massive tourist park + camp ground at dam wall + SDA Camp Somerset. 
- No forkies in Somerset which some anglers limited skill set sees them challenged by the bi-catch in Wivenhoe

Somerset has significantly higher fishing pressure than any other lakes in Qld. Wivenhoe isnt far behind Somerset in fishing pressure.

If you had asked to me estimate what I thought you had put in over the years I would have thought you blokes would have dropped more than that in

Your the big end of town. You throw fingerlings around by the 100's of thousands while us lesser souls dabble in thousands........

Certainly a good long history of stocking.

Fishing Reports / Wet Wivenhoe report
« Last post by Member on July 25, 2020, 08:07:31 PM »
A week ago Lake Wivenhoe was hosting ABT BASS tournament, with a stack of bass boats across the lake in what was a tough weekend fishing by Wivenhoe terms, although perfect weather.
This weekend the weather turned sour with a cold drizzle falling most of the day.
Found a few fish on the break lines on the flats but couldnt get a bite. Tried plastics, blades, spoons and ice jigs for nothing.

Decided to go further afield and thought Id try an area that had held fish last year. As I ran the sounder over this spot it lit up with fish.
Again I ran through an assortment of lures. Noticing several fish arching up to 12 feet I thought Id try rolling a lure through the thermals. Rummaging through my gear I found what I was after a flats roller. These are a single bladed spinner bait I designed some years ago.

After a few casts I got a tap tap which was the first interest Id had so far. Persevering with some pauses I finally got a taker. This one went 43cm. Not huge by Wivenhoe standards but I was glad to get it.
This seemed to turn on the many fish in the area. Over the next 2 Hours a dozen or so more bass were landed, tho none were larger than the first one at this spot.
