BASS
Cressbrook Dam has been a little quieter this week; the upper reaches of the Cressbrook Creek arm, straight out from the boat ramp and the points in the main basin are still holding fish, live shrimp have worked the best, plastics and tailspinners have also landed a few and it’s worth casting suspending minnows to the edges, early morning and late afternoon. Somerset Dam has produced good numbers of Bass this week, Bay13 and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, Tailspinners and Ice Jigs are proving to be effective and live shrimp have again been productive for the bait anglers. The Bass have been a bit harder to find at Boondooma this week, the Narrows, The Junction and the Stuart arm have been the best spots, while smaller Tailspinners and Ice Jigs have provided the best results, casting blades to the edges has produced a few smaller Bass at Bjelke Peterson and Moogerah has fished quite well again, working the timbered area towards the southern end of the dam has been the best, with blades, trolled hard bodies and tailspinners all working well.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly and a couple of Cod this past week, the point opposite the boat ramp and the right hand bank out from the dam wall buoy line have been popular spots, while frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and jigged ZX Ecogear blades have been the most effective. Glenlyon has fished quite well again this week, with good numbers of Cod up to 90cm hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and spinnerbaits have again worked the best for the Yellowbelly. Plenty of fish taken on trolled darker coloured lures at Coolmunda this week, working the drop-offs to the old creek beds and out from the wall have been the hot spots, while using bait in the timber and on the drop-offs has picked up a few Cod between 60 and 90cm. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies, live shrimp and crays and frozen saltwater yabbies in 30-40ft of water, while casting blades and lipless crankbaits around structure has been effective as well. At Boondooma, casting spinnerbaits to the edges and around the timber in the Stuart arm has been effective and using frozen saltwater yabbies around the timber has also picked up a few, while Bjelke Peterson has been a bit patchy again, with low numbers taking bait and trolled hard bodies in 15-20ft of water. As for the rivers, the Warwick reaches of the Condamine has produced some decent Cod and Yellowbelly, working green and black hard bodies around structure has been effective and the Brisbane River has seen some quality Bass and Yellowbelly taken on chatter baits.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has seen a few Snapper and Pearl Perch on the northern 36’s and live bait has worked well for Trag Jew and Cobia on the 18’s and 24’s. Inshore fishing has been good for Mulloway in the Seaway and inside the Pin Bar; Crab Island, The Aldershots and Kalinga Bank have produced decent numbers of Flathead; plenty of Mangrove Jack in the Runaway Bay canals and the beaches have produced good quantities of Whiting and Dart.

SUNSHINE COAST
Chardons and North Reef have produced a few Pearl Perch and Queenfish, while out wider, Snapper, Dolphin Fish and Yellowfin Tuna have been prominent. Inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting hitting surface poppers in the passage, Flathead of the Boardwalk, a mixed bag of Trevally in the Mooloolah River, a few Dart off the beaches and the Noosa River has seen good numbers of Jack’s and Threadfin Salmon in the upper reaches, while worms and yabbies have been working well for Whiting.

FRASER ISLAND
Fishing on Fraser has slowed a bit this week, mainly due to the weather, however there are still some decent Tailor getting about.
