BASS
Things have been a bit quiet, due to the weather this past week, however there have been low numbers of fish landed at Somerset, with Queen Street and Pelican Point being the best places to target, while ice jigs, tailspinners and soft vibes have been the pick of the lures. Boondooma has again seen good numbers of Bass taken on ice jigs, soft vibes and tailspinners around Pelican Point, The Junction and also into the Stuart River arm and Moogerah Dam has again produced a few Bass on ice jigs and tailspinners, looking in 25 – 30ft of water, on the western side of the dam would be your best option.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Glenlyon has produced small numbers of Yellowbelly this week, trolled hard bodies, worms and frozen saltwater yabbies are still a good option, a few Cod have been caught on spinnerbaits, even though it’s a bit quiet, persistence will pay off. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and hard bodies, targeting the old creek beds are the best option. Leslie Dam saw a few nice fish landed this past week, there were a couple of legal sized Cod landed on trolled hard body lures, they measured 64cm and 70cm, we didn’t see too many anglers brave the weather conditions over the weekend, the people that did venture out, only managed a few fish, mainly on bait. Boondooma Dam has seen good sized Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies in the Stuart arm, just out from the timber, darker colours have worked the best and Bjelke Peterson has also produced good quality Yellowbelly again, working brighter coloured TN60 Jackalls, in 20-25ft of water around Bass Point has worked well, while spinnerbaits and hard bodies have picked up a few around the timber. As for the rivers, the Goondiwindi area has seen Cod hitting bigger spinnerbaits and hard bodies and the Condamine River, out around Yarramalong Weir has been fishing reasonably well for Yellowbelly on lipless crank baits and surface lures have worked well on the Cod.

GOLD COAST
It’s been more of a challenge getting out, than actually catching fish this week, but for those that have there has been a few Snapper, Cobia 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 hitting jigs on the northern 50’s, while inshore has seen the Seaway fishing well for Bream along the rock walls, quality Flathead on trolled hard bodies throughout the Broadwater, a few Jacks off the rock walls at Runaway Bay and the sand pumping jetty, as well as the beaches have been productive for Tailor.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has been a bit patchy due to the windy conditions, with only low numbers of Snapper taken on the inner reefs, while inshore fishing has seen plenty of Flathead throughout the Passage, decent numbers of Whiting around Military Jetty and Bells Creek, Bream near structure in the canals and the Noosa River has produced heaps of Golden and Big Eye Trevally on micro jigs, Whiting around the frying pan and the river mouth has been firing for Flathead and Jewies.

FRASER ISLAND
Pretty ordinary here at the moment, with only the odd Tailor taken and what’s been caught hasn’t had any real size to it.
