Cooby Dam
Some decent reports still coming in this past week, with some great Yellow belly being caught on a variation of lures and baits. ZX blades are getting the most numbers, jigging in the deeper water towards the buoy line, also trolling Kezza lures and Little Ripper have picked up some great fish. Saltwater yabbies and worms are still the pick of the baits.

Cressbrook Dam
A little reminder this week for Cressbrook still shut for water activities but you can still camp in the camp ground, Hopefully not too long and we should see this lake re opened.

Somerset Dam
A short mid week trip this week seen a few fish boated, nothing with great size but the quantity is there, casting metal blades and spoons was the pick of the lures. Keeping them lures close to the bottom is key at this time of year when the fish are a little shut down. The morning bite seems to be the stand out bite period.

Wivenhoe Dam
Early mornings are key on Wivenhoe at the moment especially for that edge bite, 70mm Jerkbaits and lipless Crankbaits like the Jackall Tn60 have been getting a lot of attention. Away from the edges there is some reasonable shows of fish towards Platypus Cliffs, once located they have been quite tricky to switch on, the fish have been shutting down quite quickly. Spoons and soft plastics have had the success.

Copeton Dam
With the new moon over last weekend we seen quite good success coming all over the dam, Topwater and slow sinking swimbaits being the go to lures, Sun rise being that stand out bite period. Also Large Mumblers are still accounting for big fish. The Main basin seems to be where most of the action has been coming from due to the lack of water clarity up the river, finding those bait schools in the bite time is key.

Glenlyon Dam
Quiet often this Dam gets put on the back burner due to Copeton having most of the attention, but can and will produce monsters if the time and effort is put in. Very similar patterns and techniques work at Glenlyon, casting top water and swimbaits to those shallow weed edges is your best bet. Also casting Spinnerbaits and Mumblers to standing or fallen timber during the day can produce as well.

Gold Coast offshore and Broadwater
Reasonable reports coming in as the cooler water is pushing in. Good shows of snapper and mulloway on the 24 fathom reefs, with some good reef fish around as well, Bottom bashing cut baits like pilchards have worked best. For the Broadwater there has been good numbers of Squire and Bream just inside the bar all the way to the Wave Break Island rock wall. Early morning there has been some good tailor coming quite close to the surface and feeding on bait, casting metal slugs is ideal for this situation.
