BASS
A bit quieter at Cressbrook this week, but it’s worth a look along the buoy line in the main basin, around the main point in Bull Creek and also from the Eagles Nest through to the buoy line in the Cressbrook Creek arm, if you find some fish, try targeting them with smaller hard bodies, soft plastics and blades and live shrimp are always a good option out there. Quite a lot of fish still showing at Somerset, and getting them to bite has still been a bit difficult, Pelican Point, Queen Street and the start of the timber at Kirkleigh have been good spots to target, with slow rolled soft plastics, blades and live shrimp picking up a few fish, working the edges with TN60 Jackalls has been the most effective method this past week. Some decent schools of Bass are showing up at Boondooma, but after catching 2 or 3 fish they will scatter and take a couple of hours to come back, still quite a lot of smaller Bass around the edges with the odd bigger fish in amongst them, using blades and spinnerbaits on the edges has worked the best, while ice jigs and soft plastics have been effective on the schooled fish and Moogerah Dam has continued to fish well, with anglers still landing some quality Bass in numerous locations, soft plastics and ice-jigs are working the best, with blades and soft vibes also accounting for a few fish.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
With the cooler weather setting in, the fishing at Cooby has settled slightly, however there has been a few Yellowbelly taken in the deeper parts of the dam, with ZX blades and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best. Glenlyon is still producing reasonable numbers of Yellowbelly; vertically worked Blades have gone well on these fish, while frozen saltwater yabbies have produced for the bait anglers and some decent Cod have been taken around the timber, with Jackalls and Spinnerbaits working well on those fish. Blades and hard body lures have been effective at Coolmunda Dam this week, with some quality Yellowbelly and a few smaller Cod taken on the drop offs to the old creek beds. Leslie Dam has seen the points producing good numbers of Yellowbelly on blades, still a few fish taking trolled hard bodies in the main basin and working bigger spinnerbaits in the deeper water, out from the buoy line, has produced a few Cod. Boondooma has seen good quality and numbers of Yellowbelly taking soft vibes and live worms, mainly in the Boyne River arm of the dam. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has again seen good numbers of Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits, there’s also been a few Yellowbelly taking bait, the Dumeresq at Texas has also seen a few Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits, and the Warwick and Pratten reaches of the Condamine have produced small numbers of Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits and frozen saltwater yabbies.

GOLD COAST AND TWEED
Offshore fishing has again seen a bit of action this week, with the 36’s and 50’s producing good numbers of Pearl Perch and Snapper, and the 18’s and 24’s have seen a few Cobia and Mulloway getting about. Inshore fishing has seen the Southport Seaway producing plenty of Jewies along the rock walls, on the tide changes, heaps of Gar and Squid on the weed banks throughout the Broadwater; Flathead are taking bait and soft plastics at Kalinga Bank and Jumpinpin and the deeper holes in the Nerang River are producing some quality Bream.

SUNSHINE COAST

Offshore fishing has been pretty good again; there are still a few Spanish mackerel about, Snapper are starting to show up in better numbers, but they are still out a bit wider, they should start to move in closer as the water temperature drops, and this will also see the numbers increase. Inshore fishing has seen the Maroochy River producing Bream, Trevelly and Tailor around the bridges and rock bars, Caloundra is fishing well for Luderick off the Boardwalk, Flathead and Bream throughout the passage, while at Noosa, plenty of action in the river, with Trevally and Tailor smashing surface poppers, good numbers of Flathead, with bigger fish showing up after dark, plenty of Bream around any sort of structure and a few Jewies have been taken off the beaches.
