BASS
Still some reasonable shows of fish in Cressbrook at the moment, but there’s still only a few fish being caught, out from the boat ramp, around the Eagles Nest and also out off the points in the main basin have been good spots to look, using 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. Boondooma has improved this week, with good numbers of Bass taken on ice jigs, soft vibes and tailspinners throughout the main basin, Moogerah is still producing a few Bass on a variety of lures, including soft plastics, soft vibes, tailspinners and blades, however the main schools of fish are starting to thin out, due to the recent pressure put on them.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam is still producing the odd Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies, in about 40ft of water. Glenlyon has seen better numbers of Yellowbelly taken on blades this week, worms and frozen saltwater yabbies are still a good option. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly and Silver Perch on bait, in the deeper parts of the dam. Leslie Dam saw a slight increase in numbers this week, mainly due to the better weather conditions. Anglers had success while trolling along the western bank near Cod Alley, as well as to the south of the Black Boys, and for the bait anglers, worms seem to be working the best, with a few nice Silver Perch landed off the bank near the Washpool Reserve. Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson Dam have both seen good sized Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies in the main basins and casting blades to the edges has been effective as well, and Somerset has produced good quality Yellowbelly again, casting TN60 Jackalls to the edges has been effective. As for the rivers, the Macintyre continues to fish well, with good numbers of Cod hitting surface lures, shallow diving hard bodies and bigger spinnerbaits, while 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 good this past week, with plenty of Snapper, Tailor and Trag Jew taken on the 18’s and 24’s, Snapper and Pearl Perch on the northern 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 on the morning tide change and Jewies on live bait at night, quality Flathead on soft plastics throughout the Broadwater, Bream along most rock walls and the sand pumping jetty has been productive for Tailor.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has seen Murphys Reef and the Barwon Banks producing Snapper, Pearl Perch and Amberjack, while inshore fishing at Caloundra has produced Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk, Trevally and Bream around the moorings in most of the estuaries, a few Jacks in the upper reaches of the Maroochy River and the Noosa River has produced Golden Trevally at the river mouth, on the incoming tide, quality Flathead taken on trolled minnows and some good size Bream and Whiting have been caught near the Frying Pan.

FRASER ISLAND
Mixed reports from Fraser at the moment, with the wind playing a big part this past week, but even with the windy conditions, there have been times when the gutters have produced reasonable numbers of Tailor.

HERVEY BAY
Offshore fishing has seen Rooneys Reef producing Cobia, Queenfish and Mangrove Jack, Big Woody and Little Woody Islands are holding Trevally and Queenfish, most sand flats are holding Flathead and Urangan Pier has been productive for Bream.
