G'day all, heading up to FNQ mid July and back South in September. Whats the fishing like in the lakes during that time?

Was up there in June a couple of years ago and found the water too cold for barra, or so everyone said.

Will be in PNG for the last two weeks of August, walking the Kokoda Track.

Thanks for any help offered.

Lake Awoonga near Gladstone has a Barra comp on in early September if you are in the area on your return trip. So I assume the Barra or on the bite around that time of year.

I saw 3 good sized Barra taken last weekend out there as well.


Cheers Sir Kev

Hi there,
looked at the site you pointed to and it looks impressive. Can people launch their own boats or is it a private lake?
Might take a trip up there to celebrate when NSW win the series 2-1....... he he

Hey Nev
Quite possible that the fish will not be on the bite in 2020 when and if your prediction comes true!!!.

Yes barra close down a bit during the colder months, a change of tactics can still produce results, dropping a live bait close to the structure will produce a fish occasionally at Lake Tinnaroo. End of August and September can have a few warm days that will make it easier with the lures. Have fun, Regards Tony

I was up at Tinnaroo in August for a week the year before last, no one was catching fish. Plenty of Red Claw though.

That Archer Point is a windy place aye.

Yes Archer Point is windy, but if you haved lived on the WA Coast it is not much worse than that. You can catch the big spanish mackeral right off those rocks even when it is windy though! Tinnaroo is like that, this year they may be on the chew! Regards Tony

Mate, we were on the West Coast October last year, got blown inland from Cape Range. What a bugger of a place when the winds start up. No wonder everyone heads south in September.

Also try Teemburra, eungella and Peter Faust dams
Teemburra about 70k west of Mackay
Eungella about 120k west of Mackay
Peter Faust about 30k west of Proserpine
Teemburra snd Eungella are full and Peter Faust dam is at 63%

Have a good fish
