Weekly Report 19 Mar 12

Post by Brad » Mon Mar 19, 2012 6:59 pm

With the rivers returning to normal after the recent rains, there are some great fish on the move. Most of the rivers on the Southern Downs and Northern NSW are fishing extremely well. There have been some great Cod landed on live bait as well as lures, ranging anywhere from 5 pound to 30 pound. One important pointer is to get your lure right into the structure as this structure is what holds the fish. If using spinnerbaits or hard body lures, make sure to retrieve only fast enough to work your lure or spin the blades of your spinnerbait.

The local dams are still fishing quite well. With the water temperature on the decline, don’t expect huge numbers. However, the fish that have been landed have been quality fish. The Goldens are sitting in a bit deeper water so Blades are working quite well at the moment. One area to try at Leslie is the creek bed towards the black boys. There have been reports of some good fish being landed by trolling in this area using deeper lures between 4 – 5 metres.

Connelly Dam is worth a look with some big Silvers being landed on live worms. Try to pick a point where you can get through the weed using smaller spinnerbaits. Some great fish were landed by a couple of local anglers towards the back of the dam.

Moogerah is the standout local Bass dam at the moment with quality Bass still being landed. The bank and timbered area north across from the day ramp is the hot spot at present. Bass are falling to a few different lures including TN60 Jackalls, 3/8 Blades and Soft Plastics. Some fish are holding tight in the timber, while some are on the edges. The easiest thing to do is use your fish finders to locate the schools.

If you are in the local area, make sure you call in to Warwick Outdoors and Sports and say g’day to John and Wayne - for expert advice on all your fishing (from kids combo to tournament rigs), boating, hunting and camping requirements.
