Cooby Dam
A bit harder this week due to the inconsistent weather, but still some keen anglers have been trolling up some nice yellow belly. Trolling around the weed edges has been far by the most successful way of catching a few fish. Lures like the Jackall Tn60 and the shallow Kezza Mud Mouse have been the lures of choice.

Somerset Dam
Still some great fish landed this past week, not the quantify of fish but the quality is certainly there, targeting the fish on Pelican Point on the shallow flat has been the most popular area, Spoons and Tailspiners have been the pic of the lures.

Boondooma Dam
Some great numbers of fish have been caught all over the dam this past week, from spinnerbaits in the timbered arms and casting spoons in the main basin. Boondooma is definitely a go to dam at the moment, also the trolling anglers have been catching some great yellow belly, while the bait anglers are finding it hard to catch the quality of fish as the smaller fish are beating them to the bait.

Bjelkie Peterson Dam
If you ever wanted to fish BP the time is now, massive numbers of fish got caught in last weekend’s Bass Nation round, with most competitors catching there limit very quickly. The creek bed between the two boat ramps was definitely the pick of the spots, Soft plastics like the gulp minnow grub was the stand out lure by far, most of the fish are suspended in the top half of the water column, a ½ or 3/8oz jig head is ideal for this type of fishing to keep your lure in the strike zone.

Copeton Dam
Copeton dam is starting to come into its own with this colder weather, casting Jackall Gantarels or the Mudeye Rattle Snakes have caught some great fish in the morning sessions, later on trolling or casting Bassman Mumblers have picked up their fair share of fish as well. The yellow belly fisherman have been rewarded with some great fishing as well, casting Tn60’s or a Mazzy Vibe has caught some good fish.

Gold Coast Inshore and Offshore
Big numbers of bream have started to come into the Broadwater with the recent rain. Fishing the Northern Sea Way wall with either lightly weighted plastics or live yabbies have caught some great fish. The Jumpinpin has seen some great Jew fish caught mainly on live bait around the top end of Kalinga bank. The offshore fisherman there has been some good Spanish Mackerel moving around, trolling lures like the Halco Lazer will be your best chance of a feed.
