BASS
At Cressbrook, some good shows of fish out from the picnic area, the Eagles Nest and also around the main point in the Bull Creek arm of the dam, targeting them with soft plastics, soft vibes, ice jigs and blades will work, it’s definitely worth a try with live shrimp in those same areas and casting smaller lures around the weed edges has picked up a few as well. Somerset is still a bit quiet, as far as the Bass fishing is concerned. Nothing has changed at Boondooma this week, with the odd bass taken on ice jigs and blades throughout the main basin, Moogerah has been the pick of the dams for Bass, with reasonable numbers of fish taking a variety of lures, including soft plastics, soft vibes, tailspinners and blades and Maroon has again produced low numbers, mainly on live shrimp, around the weed edges.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam is still producing a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies, in about 40ft of water. A bit quieter at Glenlyon this week, with small numbers of Yellowbelly and Silver Perch taking worms and frozen saltwater yabbies. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly and Silver Perch on bait, 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 or hopping Jackall Mask Vibes around the rocky structure in the main basin and even though the numbers are down a bit, the quality is certainly there. Boondooma Dam has again seen plenty of Yellowbelly taking soft vibes and ice jigs in the main basin and casting blades to the edges has been effective as well, good numbers of quality Yellowbelly at Bjelke Peterson, with deep diving hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best and Somerset has produced good quality Yellowbelly, using silent TN60 Jackalls, cast to the edges. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River has seen good numbers of Cod hitting surface lures, shallow diving hard bodies and bigger spinnerbaits, quality Yellowbelly are biting on frozen saltwater yabbies and smaller trolled hard bodies and the upper reaches of the Condamine River, from Cecil Plains to Warwick continues to produce a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has been pretty good again this week, with plenty of Snapper and a few Cobia taken around the 18’s and 24’s, and out wider, Kingfish and Amberjack have been prominent on the 50’s, while inshore has seen the Seaway fishing well for Trevally along the north wall, Jewies at night off the sand pumping jetty, quality Flathead on soft plastics at the Aldershots and Kalinga Bank, and the weed banks around Crab Island have produced plenty of Squid and Gar.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has seen the inner reefs producing Snapper and the odd Tusk Fish. Inshore fishing at Caloundra has produced Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk, Flathead throughout the passage and at the mouth of the Maroochy River, Winter Whiting on the sand flats, near the Powerboat Club and the mouth of the Noosa River has produced Golden Trevally and Jewies on the incoming tide.

FRASER ISLAND
Tailor fishing is going alright at the moment, with most gutters holding fish, there’s no great size to them, but the numbers are pretty good.
