BASS

Cressbrook Dam has been fishing well for Bass, with some quality fish from 38-44cm hitting trolled darker coloured hard bodies, look along the buoy line and across to Deer Island, where the fish are suspended at about 20-30ft, it’s also worth a look in the Bull Creek arm of the dam. Somerset Dam has kicked into gear again this week; with some good solid fish taking soft plastics and ice jigs, the fish are still holding in Bay 13, Queen Street and around Pelican Point. Boondooma Dam has got a good reaction bite going at the moment, with quality fish taking TN60 Jackalls and spinnerbaits, cast to the edges. Bjelke Peterson has also produced good numbers of Bass this week, working the edges with spinnerbaits has been good while Bass point has seen a few taken on Blades and trolled hard bodies and down at Moogerah Dam, anglers have managed to land a few nice Bass over the past week, most fish were taken in and around the timber while casting blades, another good spot has been in the bay opposite the dam wall, while some fish were also landed trolling hard bodies along the southern banks.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Cod and Yellowbelly fishing is still good around the area at the moment; Cooby Dam has produced a few Yellowbelly around the weed edges, trolled hard bodies and spinnerbaits have worked well on those fish while blades, ice jigs and frozen saltwater yabbies have been effective on the deeper schooled fish and there has been a couple of Cod taken on spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies. Glenlyon has produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly again this week, bait, spinnerbaits and hard bodies have all worked well, but the Cod are a bit quiet at the moment. Coolmunda has again produced good numbers of Cod and Yellowbelly on darker coloured lures, working the old creek beds and along the wall have still been the best spots to target. Leslie Dam is continuing to fish quite well on both lures and bait, using a sounder to locate the fish in the main basin and targeting them with bait has been effective, but working soft vibes through the fish has given the best results and in the South Burnett, both Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson dams have again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, in Boondooma, bait and trolled hard bodies have been effective in the main basin, while casting spinnerbaits around the timber and to the edges throughout the dam has produced some quality fish, while at Bjelke Peterson, casting reaction lures, like spinnerbaits and Jackalls around the timber has been a popular method. As for the rivers, at midnight this Sunday night the no take season on Cod in the Border Rivers and also the rivers throughout NSW, finishes, so if you like fishing those areas, it’s all systems go, however the Dumeresq and Macintyre Rivers are fairly quiet at the moment, but the Condamine River, from Pratten to Warwick has produced some quality Cod and Yellowbelly on hard bodies and spinnerbaits.

GOLD COAST

Offshore fishing has been fairly good this week, the 18’s & 24’s have produced a few smaller Black Marlin and the odd Pearl Perch and there’s been plenty of Kingies and Amberjack hitting jigs on the 50’s. Inshore fishing has seen smaller Kingies and Trevally out the front of Wavebreak Island, Jumpinpin has been good for Flathead and Tailor on the incoming tide, Whiting at the mouth of the Coomera River and near the Council Chambers in the Nerang River and the southern Broadwater has seen a few Sand Crabs getting about.

SUNSHINE COAST

Offshore fishing has seen some decent schools of Spotty Mackerel and Long Tail Tuna getting about, the majority of these fish have been taken on cast and retrieved slugs around the 18-25 gram size, while there have been good reports of Tusk Fish and Grassy Sweetlip taken at Caloundra wide. Inshore fishing has seen the passage at Caloundra producing some nice Flathead and a few smaller Bream; Trevally and Jacks around the bridges in the Pelican Waters canals. The Maroochy River has been fishing well for Flathead and Jacks in the upper reaches, Trevally and Chopper Tailor at the mouth of the Noosa River on the run in tide and the beaches have produced good numbers of quality Whiting.
