Report 24/10/14

BASS
Cressbrook Dam has produced some quality Bass this week, mainly on live shrimp, with the Cressbrook Creek arm and straight out from the boat ramp being the best spots to target. Somerset Dam has produced good numbers of Bass again this week, The Spit, Bay13 and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, Tailspinners, Soft Vibes and Blades are proving to be effective and live shrimp have again been productive for the bait anglers. Boondooma Dam has seen Tailspinners and Ice Jigs working well in the main basin, while casting spinnerbaits to the edges around Pelican Point has produced a few as well, plenty of smaller Bass taking tailspinners and blades at Bjelke Peterson, Moogerah has fished quite well again, working the timbered area towards the southern end of the dam has been the best, with TN60 Jackalls being the most effective, the fish were mainly located in the deeper water, however there were also some nice fish taken off the edges, using soft plastics and Maroon produced some quality Bass on surface, before the wind picked up and there were also decent numbers landed, working spinnerbaits and small crankbaits around the weed edges.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has again produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly this past week, using live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies or trolling spinnerbaits and hopping blades early morning/ late afternoon has provided the best results. Glenlyon has fished quite well again this week, with good numbers of Cod between 60 and 110cm hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp have worked the best for the Yellowbelly. Darker coloured lures have worked well again at Coolmunda this week, working the drop-offs to the old creek beds and out from the wall have been the best spots. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies, blades, soft vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies in about 20ft of water, while casting blades and lipless crankbaits around structure has been effective as well. At Boondooma, casting spinnerbaits to the edges at Pelican Point and around the timber in the Stuart arm has been effective and trolled hard bodies 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 Macintyre at Goondi has produced a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and spinnerbaits, the Condamine has again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, particularly around the Pratten area and the Brisbane River has again seen some quality Bass and Yellowbelly taken on a variety of hard body lures.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has seen Yellowfin Tuna and Striped Marlin out wide, Pearl Perch and Kingies on the 50’s and the 24’s and 36’s have produced quality Mulloway as well as a few Snapper, while inshore has produced GT’s and School Jew near the pipeline, at the top of the tide, Flathead and Jew along the northern wall of the Seaway, the Coomera River is fishing well for Mangrove Jack on hard bodies and live Mullet and the Pin is producing some quality Flathead near Kalinga and Crusoe Island.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has seen the Barwon Banks producing Red Throat Sweetlip and Moses Perch; a few Tuna have also been taken on the troll, while the closer reefs have fished well for Snapper and Mulloway. Inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting on the sand banks opposite the Power Boat Club, Bream and Trevally off the Boardwalk, Jacks in the Maroochy River on plastics and fresh baits and the Noosa River has seen good numbers of Jack’s holding tight to structure, with live baits working well on those fish and the river mouth has fished well for Whiting and Flathead.
