Fish species article: Bonito – Fishing for Bonito

Species article: Bonito

While Bonito used to be considered a bait fish, its eating properties were overlooked; it is actually a tasty fish if bled straight after capture and cooked fresh rather than frozen. The main reason this species is so popular with anglers is its ability to fight fast and hard, providing great sport on light fishing gear.

Bonito is an inshore pelagic species, often found along the subtropical eastern and western coastlines of Australia. There are a few species of Bonito in Australia  such as: Australian Bonito (sarda australis), Oriental Bonito (sarda orientails) and Watsons Leaping Bonito (cybiosarda elegans).  In Australian waters they don’t grow large: to a maximum of about 7kg on the east coast and about 4kg off the coast of Western Australia.  Bonito are sometimes mistaken for skipjack although their colour is a brighter green and black stripes appear along the top of the body rather than along the lower sides as with skipjack.

The Bonito are surface feeding fish and most often found close to the shoreline, in rocky wash areas and around reefs, so they can be caught from boats or by anglers casting off from rocks or jetties. Around dawn in summer and autumn, when the water is between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius, is the best time to catch bonito.

The same fishing techniques as you’d use to catch species like skipjack, kingfish and salmon will be successful with bonito. The fish will attack live bait and cubes of fish flesh, as well as flies and fishing lures.  While land based anglers are limited to casting and retrieving lures or baits, boat anglers have a much wider range of options including casting lures, and trolling lures and baits.  Because bonito have sharp teeth, metal lures will last longer than lures made from softer materials. One of the best types of lure for attracting bonito is the Halco Twisty Fishing Lure or Kokoda Quarter Back Fishing Lures, both versatile metal lures with an enticing actions, available from the Fishing Tackle Shop.

Bonito are very much sought after by light spinning enthusiasts.  Fishing reels best suited for land based fishing for bonito should allow a reasonable casting distance, so for angling from rocks or jetties consider a six-eight kilo spinning outfit. For boat fishing, lighter spinning outfits (four-six) would be suitable. For land based fishing you’ll need an 8 to 10 foot fishing rod, while a shorter (6-7 foot) rod is better for boat angling. A great rod/reel combination offered by the Fishing Tackle Shop is a Okuma Epix 60 Fishing Reel with 8 foot Crystal Power Tip Fishing Rod which is perfect for targeting bonito from the shore.

You can fish for bonito from the shore or from a boat close to the shore, and light – medium fishing gear is all that’s needed.  Provided that you have the patience to keep casting until the speedsters start to appear, your persistence will be rewarded with some great sport.

Fishing for Australian Bass with Lures

Fishing for Australian Bass with Lures


Australian Bass are rated highly by anglers as great sportfish that can put up a spectacular fight when hooked on light fishing gear. Although a relatively small fish that grows to less than a few kilograms, the Australian Bass displays amazing strength.  Here are a few hints on fishing for this exciting species.

Australian Bass are predominantly distributed along coastal New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. A number of freshwater impoundments from southern Queensland to Victoria are also stocked with Australian bass. In their natural habitat, the fish can be found in coastal tributaries and rivers, from the tidal reaches to fresher upstream waters.

Australian Bass like to shelter under snags, reeds, overhanging trees and similar cover during daylight and venture out of cover to feed at night. Summer, is generally the best season for angling for Australian Bass and It has also been said that any month ending in an “R” are the months when fishing for Bass is likely to produce results. Daytime fishing close to the bank of a river or impoundment is likely to be far more profitable than fishing in more open waters.  At night the fish can be found more easily in midstream as well as close to the bank and if you’re looking for larger Bass you’ll find them around during the full moon period.

Although a famously wary fish, Australian Bass take bait and lures aggressively. They are attracted to bait’s such as, prawns and freshwater yabbies as well as land based bait such as cicadas, worms, grasshoppers and crickets.  Some Saltwater or freshwater baitfish flies can produce well, or fishing lures such as deep diving or buoyant minnows, surface crawler and other small surface fishing lures and soft plastic fishing lures all attract Bass. Surface lures such as fizzers or Popper lures are effective around sunrise and sunset; while spinner baits suit daytime fishing or angling in heavily weeded areas when Bass are deep in the water.

The Shimano Raider Bass Raider Fishing Rod, available from Ocean Storm Fishing Tackle’s Online Fishing Tackle Shop, has been devised specifically for the angler targeting bass.  It’s a light one piece rod, just less than 6 feet in length, and designed to accommodate an overhead bait caster fishing reel.

For the Spinning Anglers and for tossing round the lighter weight lures a spinning combination is generally a light weight graphite fishing rod from 6 – 7 foot in length combined with a small fishing reel. A good choice for the angler that doesn’t want to spend a fortune on a bass fishing set up but also wants a quality bass fishing outfit the choice would be a Shimano “Rack Raider” – Raider Fishing Rod coupled with a 2500 Size Shimano Spinning Reel.

Some of the more productive fishing techniques when targeting Australian Bass include casting from the bank or a boat into likely cover locations, and trolling over sunken weeds and logs.


Although many of the best spots for fishing for Australian Bass are rather remote and difficult to access, your perseverance and dedication in trekking or kayaking to these locations can reward you with some great fishing.
