Weather-wise March can be brilliant with mild and settled weather. So the message here is get out and go fishing in March, there is heaps of opportunity and boot shorts style fishing and camping out are still great options.

If you’re still on holiday, lucky you, have fun.

If you’re back at work, this report may just instil a little jealousy as there is some pretty good fishing on offer currently that I can fill you in on.

It may just bring out the weekend warrior in you.

Some days plenty get caught too.
