BASS
Cressbrook has been patchy again this week, look for schooled fish throughout the dam and target them with soft plastics, soft vibes, ice jigs and blades, it’s also worth a try around the edges, particularly early morning and late afternoon, soft plastics, blades and crankbaits would be your best options in these areas. A few schools of fish are starting to show up at Somerset Dam, Pelican Point, Eagles Nest and Queen Street are the better spots, with ice jigs, blades and soft vibes picking up a few fish. At Boondooma, the odd bass has been caught on ice jigs and blades throughout the main basin and Moogerah Dam has been a bit quiet, however blades worked tight to the bottom have picked up the odd fish.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Some good numbers of Cod on spinnerbaits at Glenlyon this week, but no big fish to report and still some decent numbers of Yellowbelly taking worms and frozen saltwater yabbies. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly on bait, in the deeper parts of the dam. Fishing at Leslie Dam has improved over the past week, with fairly good numbers of Yellowbelly taken on bait, opposite the dam wall in the main basin, and targeting submerged structure with soft vibes has been effective again. Boondooma Dam has seen plenty of Yellowbelly taking soft vibes and ice jigs in the main basin and also the timbered area of the Stuart arm, plenty of Yellowbelly at Bjelke Peterson as well, with blades, soft vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best. Not a lot has changed as far as the rivers are concerned, the Macintyre River has seen good numbers of Cod hitting shallow diving hard bodies and bigger spinnerbaits, quality Yellowbelly have been plentiful as well, the Dumeresq River, downstream of Texas has produced reasonable numbers of Cod this week, spinnerbaits have been effective there as well, and the upper reaches of the Condamine River have produced a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits and frozen saltwater yabbies.

GOLD COAST AND TWEED
After the strong winds subsided, offshore fishing has improved as the week progressed, with Snapper and Trag Jew taken on the 36’s, and out wider, Pearl Perch have been prominent on the 50’s, while inshore, has seen the Seaway fishing well for Jewies and Tailor, early morning on the run in tide has been the best time, quality Flathead at Flipping Sands and Crusoe Island, just to the north of Jumpinpin, and there’s plenty of smaller Bream hanging around the rock walls and pylons, throughout all of the estuaries.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has seen the outer reefs fishing well for big Snapper and Tusk Fish, the inner reefs are producing smaller Snapper and Sweetlip and there’s still a few Spotty Mackerel getting about, but they are getting a bit patchy. Inshore fishing has produced Bream off the Boardwalk and Flathead just inside the bar entrance at Caloundra, Bream, Trevally and School Jew in the upper reaches of the Maroochy River, the Noosa River has produced big Tailor and Trevally on metal lures, on the incoming tide and quality Flathead are taking soft plastics on the sand flats.

FRASER ISLAND
Tailor are thick in the gutters and there are plenty of Dart getting about as well.
