Report 10/10/14

BASS
Cressbrook Dam has again seen some quality fish getting about; the upper reaches of the Cressbrook Creek arm and the points in the main basin have been the hot spots, while spinnerbaits, Tailspinners, soft plastics and live shrimp have worked the best for these fish. Somerset Dam has produced reasonable numbers of Bass this week, there’s a lot of fish around, but you will still have to work for them. The Spit, Bay13 and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, with 1/4oz blades, 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, soft plastics, tailspinners, ice jigs and trolled hard bodies are working well, while the main basin, the junction and Pelican Point have again 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, with gold blades and tailspinners working well.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam is still producing decent numbers of Yellowbelly, out from the boat ramp in 30ft of water, the point opposite the boat ramp and the right hand bank out from the dam wall buoy line have all been popular spots, while frozen saltwater yabbies, ice jigs 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 frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and spinnerbaits are working the best for the Yellowbelly, which are holding just out from the edges, in 15-20ft of water. Plenty of fish taken on worms and frozen saltwater yabbies again at Coolmunda this week, trolled hard bodies in darker colours have also produced good numbers, including a few Cod. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly taking frozen shrimp and saltwater yabbies in 30-40ft of water, while trolling diving hard bodies and Strada Shudder’s 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 has been a bit patchy again, with 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 local rivers and creeks have fished well for Yellowbelly and Cod, with a massive Yellowbelly, measuring 67cm, landed in the Warwick reaches of the Condamine River on a Mumbler.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has seen a few Cobia on the Artificial Reef, north of the Seaway, and a few Snapper and Pearl Perch on the northern 50’s. Inshore fishing has been good for Flathead and Mulloway on plastics and live bait, in the Seaway, off Crab Island and around the Pin, the odd Kingy at the pipeline on the run out tide; good numbers of Whiting in the Nerang River and a few Sand Crabs have started to show up on the Southern end of the Broadwater.

SUNSHINE COAST
The inner reefs have produced Snapper, Sweetlip and Pearl Perch, the Barwon Banks and North Reef have produced Cobia, Yellowtail Kingfish, Snapper, Dolphin Fish and Wahoo while inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting around the Power Boat Club on Yabbies, Bream, Whiting and Flathead of the Boardwalk, Flathead and Jacks in the Mooloolah River, Whiting and Dart off most beaches and in the Noosa River, plenty of good size Whiting and Flathead throughout the system.

FRASER ISLAND
Fishing on Fraser has again been good over the last week, north of Happy Valley has been popular, with the average size of the Tailor getting up around the 55cm mark.
