Mary River Bassing


Spent three nights in the last week of September camping on the lower Mary River with my son Jules - we found a swag of good sized bass, numerous catties and dropped a few Saratoga - great fishing and great country - most fish were caught on hard bodies, including deep divers more suited to chasing cod, fish also bit well into midday - one of the best representative rivers left in south east Queensland - lets hope we keep it that way -

Couple of other pics...

Hows going mate is that camp grounds or private property where you camp looking for some where new that allows camping and fishing that i can bring dog.
Cheers Joseph
