3 hours at Lake Kurwongbah - can I catch a bass?!

Tuesday 26 September 2023

After a pretty much fishless week at the sunshine coast I was desperate to get a bend in the rod... It's been tough going at Lake Kurwongbah recently but it was defo worth a go - question was, would I get amongst some fish?!

Unusually for me, this was going to be an afternoon session at Lake Kurwongbah and with only 3 hours on my hands before sunset, I wasted no time paddling up the lake. A quick stop at 'Toga Point' didn't yield any fish so I quickly moved onto 'Fence Bay' and was rewarded with a cracking bass on the 1st cast! Luckily for me, there were a number of fish around including a quality 34cm bass.

All in all I picked off 5 decent fish in 6 casts, which was a bit of a result. I was fully expecting to pick up some more on my way back to the landing station but sadly there were no more takers, despite the conditions looking bang on. Perhaps Kurwongbah bass are morning rather than evening biters?! It was great to see the sun go down over the lake (makes a change from seeing it come up!) and I headed home a happy angler.
