BASS
Somerset Dam has produced good numbers of bass this week, with some quality fish getting about, The Spit, Kirkleigh and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, slow rolled soft plastics worked tight to the bottom, has been good, while tailspinners and Ice Jigs have been effective as well and live shrimp are the go, for the bait anglers. A few smaller fish near the Eagles Nest at Cressbrook, it’s also worth a look on the flats, out from the boat ramp and in the Cressbrook Creek arm of the dam. Boondooma has again seen some decent bass getting about throughout the dam, slow rolled vibes or ice jigging around Pelican Point has seen the best results with 50cm plus fish not uncommon. Bjelke Peterson is still fishing well; Bass Point has been a hot spot, casting Jackalls and smaller spinnerbaits to the edges early morning and then using plastics and blades a bit deeper, later in the day, has been good as well. Moogerah Dam has seen some schooled bass located in the main basin; these fish are taking a variety of lures, including soft plastics, blades and ice jigs and Maroon Dam has again seen some quality bass up to 48cm landed over the past week, targeting the weed edges with soft plastics and live shrimp has given the best results.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam is still producing decent numbers of yellowbelly, working the weed edges early morning and late afternoon has been good, trolling hard bodies and using bait in the deeper parts has been effective as well. Glenlyon has fished well this week, with plenty of Cod from 70cm and upwards, as well as heaps of yellowbelly being caught, Jackall Doozers and spinnerbaits are working well for the cod, while live shrimp and blades are working the best on the yellowbelly. Lures have worked well at Coolmunda this week; working them close to the bottom has been successful, while bait has worked well around the timber, a few Cod have started to show up as well, which have provided a bit of fun for the anglers. Numbers at Leslie Dam are on the increase, with lure anglers having better success than previous weeks, there have been quite a few reports of bag limits being filled in an afternoon; hopping Mask Vibes provided the best results, while trolling hard bodies along Cod Alley produced some nice fish. Bait anglers also had some success up near the Black Boys on shrimp. Connolly Dam also managed to produce some nice fish; bait anglers had the most success, with good numbers of yellowbelly landed on worms in the more sheltered areas, both Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson dams have produced good numbers of fish, mainly around the timbered parts, with live shrimp and frozen salt water yabbies proving to be popular in these dams. As for the rivers, the Balonne at St.George is fishing well for Yellowbelly on live bait, with a few fish starting to take spinnerbaits and the Condamine River continues to fish well for yellowbelly and cod, with most of the weirs and popular holes, throughout the system again proving to be quite productive.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing this past week has again seen cobia taking live bait on the closer artificial reefs and out wider; the northern 36’s has been firing for some big kingies and amberjack. Plenty of jewies off the Seaway wall, on live bait, good numbers of Flathead on soft plastics and trolled lures throughout the Broadwater and Jumpinpin, quality Bream around the bridges and pontoons throughout the Nerang River and good numbers of tailor around Crusoe Island.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has again seen the outer reefs fishing well for snapper, pearl perch, yellowtail kingfish and amberjack, while inshore fishing has seen plenty of whiting around the Power Boat Club, big bream and flathead on soft plastics, off Military Jetty and around the mouth of the Maroochy River, trevelly and mangrove jack at night, under the bridges, in the Pelican Waters canals and in the Noosa River, trevally are hitting surface poppers on the flats, while queenfish, jewies and flathead, have been taking live bait around the river mouth.

FRASER ISLAND
Much the same as last week at Fraser, with good numbers of tailor, whiting and dart getting about the exposed beaches, the numbers of good quality tailor are on the increase.
