Cressbrook Dam has produced some quality Bass again this week, live shrimp are still a good option, but Spinnerbaits and silent TN60 Jackalls are picking up a few off the steeper banks. Somerset Dam has quietened off a bit this week, The Spit, Bay13 and the Pelican Point areas are still holding fish, but they’re a bit tight lipped at the moment. Boondooma Dam has seen Tailspinners working well in 15-20ft of water, around Pelican Point, slow worked soft vibes are proving to be effective in both arms and trolled hard bodies have worked well in the main basin, plenty of smaller Bass taking live shrimp and blades, mainly around the edges at Bjelke Peterson, Moogerah has fished well again this week, with the fish becoming a lot more active as the water temperature rises, hard bodies, blades and live shrimp have all worked well and Maroon produced some quality Bass on surface lures early morning, late afternoon, while working spinnerbaits and small crankbaits around the weed edges, saw some good numbers landed as well.

Cooby Dam has been a bit quiet this week, with only the odd Yellowbelly being caught, using frozen saltwater yabbies and hopping blades late afternoon has provided the best results. Glenlyon has fished quite well again this week, with good numbers of Cod hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, and with shrimp becoming more prominent in the weed edges, they are starting to work well for the Yellowbelly. Trolled hard body 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, while frozen saltwater yabbies have been the pick of the baits and Cod have been fairly active, with hard bodies and spinnerbaits doing the job on these. Leslie Dam continues to fish very well, with reports of good numbers being landed, there were some nice Yellowbelly landed from the bank near the concrete boat ramp on Sunday morning, the majority of these fish were taken on live shrimp, while casting and trolling hard body lures and blades produced fish throughout the dam. At Boondooma, trolling hard bodies throughout the main basin and both arms has produced decent numbers, while Bjelke Peterson has seen Jackalls and spinnerbaits working well around the timber and points. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondi has produced a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and spinnerbaits, the St.George area has seen Yellowbelly active above the Jack Tyler Weir, while below the weir has produced good numbers of Cod; and the Condamine has again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, particularly from Pratten through to Warwick, with bait, hard bodies and spinnerbaits all working well.

Offshore fishing has seen Yellowfin Tuna and Kingies on the 50’s and the 24’s and 36’s have also produced Kingies as well as a few Amberjack, while inshore has produced GT’s and School Jew near the pipeline, at the top of the tide, Kingies and Jew in the Seaway, the Nerang River is fishing well for Mangrove Jack on hard bodies and live Mullet, around the bridges and pylons and the Pin is producing some quality Flathead near Kalinga Bank and Crusoe Island.

Offshore fishing has been a little quiet, mainly due to rough conditions, however those who have ventured out, picked up the odd Snapper. Inshore fishing has seen plenty of Flathead taking live bait and plastics throughout the Passage, the Maroochy River has fished well for Trevally and Whiting and the Noosa River has seen good numbers of Jack’s taken on live baits, Whiting on surface poppers and worms and the run in tide has seen Trevally and Queenfish hitting metal jigs just inside the river mouth.
