Congratulations to Steve “Killer” Kanowski on his win, in what was a tuff bite at Boondooma Dam last weekend, he also took out the Big Bass prize, with a healthy 2.01kg fish. Local angler Ray Holmes took out the non-boater devision, well done Ray and overall for the weekend, there were 80 Bass weighed in, at an average weight of 820 grams.

The fishing has been pretty tuff again at Boondooma this week, tailspinners and blades have been the most effective, while the timbered area of the Stewart arm has been the best spot to target, blades and live shrimp have picked up a few Bass at Bjelke Peterson and Maroon Dam has produced a few fish again this week, with anglers picking up some decent Bass around the weed pockets, soft plastics and crank baits are still working the best.

Glenlyon Dam has been the best impoundment for Yellowbelly this week, good numbers of fish are taking live worms and frozen saltwater yabbies in 30-40ft of water, low numbers of Yellowbelly at Coolmunda Dam this week, the drop-offs to the old creek beds and also along the wall have been the best spots to target. A bit quiet at Leslie Dam again this week, with low numbers of Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies in the main basin. Boondooma has seen stacks of good quality Yellowbelly taking blades, spinnerbaits, frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp throughout the dam and Bjelke Peterson has seen a few fish taken in the main basin, as well as the points throughout the dam, trolling darker coloured hard bodies has been the most effective. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River has seen good numbers of Cod, up to a metre hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits, quality Yellowbelly to 50cm have been plentiful as well, the Dumeresq River, downstream of Texas has produced reasonable numbers of Cod this week, surface lures and spinnerbaits have been effective there as well and the upper reaches of the Condamine River have produced a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

Offshore fishing has been good again this week, with the inner reefs fishing well for Amberjack and Cobia and good numbers of Squire and Trag Jew have been taken on the 24’s and 36’s. Inshore fishing saw the Southport Seaway produce a few Tailor and Trevally, along the rock walls; quality Flathead throughout the Jumpinpin area and there’s heaps of Bream and Whiting throughout most of the estuaries.

Offshore fishing has been pretty good again; there’s plenty of Snapper about at the moment, with 5 Mile, 12 Mile, Sunshine and Caloundra Wide all producing, there’s also a few Pearl Perch amongst them and the odd Mackerel is still getting about. While inshore fishing has seen Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk and plenty of Bream also throughout the Maroochy River, School Jew in the passage and the Noosa River has produced big Sea Bream just inside the river mouth, School Jew and Flathead to 90cm on soft plastics and blades and soft plastics have also worked well for Golden Trevally.

Tuna and Mackerel in Platypus Bay, plenty of Bream around the jetties and rock walls, a few flathead along the beaches and there’s been a few Tailor starting to show up on the southern end of Fraser Island.
