BASS

Cressbrook Dam has produced a few Bass again this week, soft plastics and trolled darker coloured hard bodies are working the best, mainly along the buoy line and through the main basin. Similar to last week at Boondooma Dam, there’s still a good reaction bite going on, with quality fish taking TN60 Jackalls and spinnerbaits, cast to the edges, trolling hard bodies in the main basin has also been effective. Bjelke Peterson has also produced good numbers of Bass this week, it’s been slightly better than Boondooma, working the edges with spinnerbaits, Jackalls and Blades has been good while Bass point has seen a few taken on Blades and trolled hard bodies and down at Moogerah and Maroon, both dams continue to fish well, Maroon has probably been the pick, with anglers landing some quality fish on a variety of lures, early morning and late afternoon have been the best times to try.

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 buoy line, not just in the deeper water, but also the banks working back from the buoy line, TN60 Jackalls are the best option, however spinnerbaits and soft vibes have picked up a couple as well. Glenlyon has produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly again this week, bait, spinnerbaits and hard bodies have all worked well, a couple of Cod have been caught, but they’re still a bit hard to come by. 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 continues to fish quite well for both lure and bait anglers, with blades and hard body lures picking up the most fish, live shrimp have been working the best for the bait anglers, there was also a few legal sized Cod landed on spinnerbaits, while casting at the structure 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, 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, the Dumeresq has a bit of a flow in it at the moment, due to releases from Glenlyon and there are a few Yellowbelly hitting hard bodies and spinnerbaits from the Bonshaw Weir downstream and the Condamine River, from Pratten to Warwick has produced some quality Cod and Yellowbelly on hard bodies and spinnerbaits.

GOLD COAST

Offshore fishing has produced some small Black Marlin, on trolled lures, out from the Jumpinpin Bar and out on the 50 Fathom line, Blue Marlin and Dolphin Fish have provided some fun for the anglers. Inshore fishing has seen smaller Kingies and GT’s in the Seaway, Jewies at the mouth of Swan Bay at the Pin, Whiting near the Council Chambers in the Nerang River, Jacks around the bridges on live bait and plastics in the Coomera River and a few Flathead have been taken around Slippin Sands on smaller hard body lures.

SUNSHINE COAST

Offshore fishing has fired up this week plenty of Mackerel and Kingies getting about most reefs, Coral Trout and Sweetlip at Sunshine Reef and a few Black Marlin are getting about 5 Mile Reef. Inshore fishing has seen the passage at Caloundra producing some nice Flathead, Trevelly and Jacks in most of the rivers, the Maroochy River has been fishing well for Flathead and Whiting on soft plastics and beach worms, Trevally and Kingfish on soft plastics at the mouth of the Noosa River and the beaches have produced good numbers of quality Whiting.
