BASS
Still a bit quiet at Cressbrook this week, look for schooled fish out from the picnic area, the Eagles Nest and also around the main point in the Bull Creek arm of the dam and target them with soft plastics, soft vibes, ice jigs and blades, it’s definitely worth a try with live shrimp in those same areas. A few schools of fish are still showing 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. Nothing has changed at Boondooma this week, with the odd bass taken on ice jigs and blades throughout the main basin, still a few fish taken on blades and soft plastics at Moogerah Dam and Maroon has produced low numbers, mainly on live shrimp, around the weed edges.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam is producing a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies, looking in about 40ft of water will give you the best chance. Good numbers of Cod on spinnerbaits again at Glenlyon this week, 70cm has been about the biggest caught and still some decent numbers of Yellowbelly and Silver Perch taking worms and frozen saltwater yabbies. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly on bait and Ecogear ZX Blades, in the deeper parts of the dam. There were a few Yellowbelly landed at Leslie this past week, anglers seemed to have the most success by vertically jigging blades, Jackall Mask Vibes also accounted for a few nice fish in the main basin and the bait anglers also had some success around the boulders across from the dam wall. Boondooma Dam has again seen plenty of Yellowbelly taking soft vibes and ice jigs in the main basin and also the timbered area of the Stuart arm, good numbers of Yellowbelly at Bjelke Peterson, with blades, soft vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best. As for the rivers, it’s fairly similar to previous weeks, the Macintyre River has seen good numbers of Cod hitting surface lures, shallow diving hard bodies and bigger spinnerbaits, quality Yellowbelly are still on the bite as well, the Dumeresq River, downstream of Texas has produced reasonable numbers of smaller Cod this week, spinnerbaits and hard bodies have been effective there as well, and the upper reaches of the Condamine River, from Cecil Plains to Warwick have produced a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has been pretty good this week, with Cobia and smaller Snapper taken around the 18’s and 24’s, Snapper and Pearl Perch on the 36’s, and out wider, Kingfish and Amberjack have been prominent on the 50’s, while inshore, has seen the Seaway fishing well for Trevally and Tailor, quality Flathead on soft plastics and small minnows, throughout the Jumpinpin area, and there’s still plenty of 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 Pearl Perch, plenty of Squire and Tailor around Brays Rock, the inner reefs are producing smaller Snapper and the odd Tusk Fish and there’s still a few Spotty Mackerel getting about. Inshore fishing has produced Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk and at the mouth of the Maroochy River, Winter Whiting on the sand flats, near the Powerboat Club, some decent size Flathead in Bells Creek, the Mooloolah River and also the Noosa River and the Noosa River has also produced Jacks, Golden Trevally and Jewies on live baits.

FRASER ISLAND
Still good numbers of Tailor and Dart in most of the gutters, particularly on the southern end of the island.
