BASS
Cressbrook Dam has again seen some quality fish getting about; they’re not going off at the moment, but if you put in the time, you should pick up a few, the upper reaches of the Cressbrook Creek arm and the main point in the Bull Creek arm have been the best spots to target, while Tailspinners, soft plastics and live shrimp have worked the best. Somerset Dam has continued to produce good numbers of Bass this week, The Spit, Kirkleigh and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, with slow rolled soft plastics, Tailspinners and Ice Jigs proving to be effective and live shrimp have again been productive for the bait anglers. Boondooma has again seen some decent Bass getting about throughout the dam, mask vibes, tailspinners, ice jigs and trolled hard bodies are working well, while the main basin, the junction and Pelican Point have been the best spots to target, and both Maroon and Moogerah are fishing quite well at the moment, with good number of Bass landed at Maroon, casting soft plastics at the edges and weed pockets has given the best results, while at Moogerah, fishing in the timber towards the southern end of the dam has been the best.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam is still producing decent numbers of Yellowbelly, out from the boat ramp has been a popular spot, while frozen saltwater yabbies and jigged blades have been the most effective. Glenlyon continues to improve as the weather warms up, with good numbers of Cod up to 80cm hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while live shrimp, frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and spinnerbaits are working the best for the Yellowbelly. Plenty of fish taken on worms and frozen saltwater yabbies at Coolmunda this week, trolled hard bodies have also produced good numbers as well, including a few Cod. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly taking frozen shrimp and saltwater yabbies in 30-40ft of water and casting blades around structure has been effective as well. Boondooma continues to produce good numbers of fish through the main basin on jigged blades and trolled hard bodies, while Bjelke Peterson hasn’t fished quite as well, although there are still reasonable numbers taking bait and trolled hard bodies in 15-20ft of water. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River has produced low numbers of fish on frozen saltwater yabbies and the Condamine River continues to fish well for Yellowbelly and Cod, with most of the weirs and popular holes between Cecil Plains and Warwick proving to be quite productive.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing this past week has seen Pearl Perch, Snapper and Kingies on the northern 50’s, while the 18’s and 24’s have produced Cobia and Snapper. Inshore fishing has seen Kingies and Mulloway taking live bait in the Seaway, inside the Jumpinpin Bar has produced Tailor as well as Flathead on soft plastics, a few Jacks are starting to show up around the rock walls and the beaches have produced good numbers of Whiting and Dart.

SUNSHINE COAST
The inner reefs have produced Snapper and mixed bags of reef fish, the wider reefs have produced Cobia, Yellowtail Kingfish and bigger 5-6kg Snapper, while inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting in the Passage, Bream, Whiting and Flathead of the Boardwalk, a mixed variety of Trevally in the Mooloolah River, Tailor and Dart off most beaches and in the Noosa River, the upper reaches are producing good numbers of Mangrove Jack and Mulloway, while Trevally and bigger Flathead, have been taking live bait around the river mouth, on the incoming tide.

FRASER ISLAND
Anglers have landed decent numbers of Tailor this past week, on most of the exposed beaches.
