BASS

Cressbrook Dam is still fishing quite well for Bass, soft plastics and spinnerbaits are still working, looking along the buoy line and across to Deer Island, where the fish are suspended at about 20-30ft is still a good option, it’s also worth a look near the eagles nest and into the Cressbrook Creek arm of the dam, the fish are by no means easy to catch, but if you happen to hook a few, there are some quality fish getting about. Somerset Dam saw some good catches over the weekend and into the start of this week, the deeper water in the timbered part of the dam saw the fish suspended at about 20ft and working Spinnerbaits through these fish produced some good results. Queen Street was also a popular spot for the anglers, where vertically worked blades were effective. Trolling hard bodies from the junction to the start of the timber in the Stuart arm has been very productive at Boondooma this week, while casting Spinnerbaits and Jackalls around the trees, in the upper reaches of that same arm has been good as well. Bjelke Peterson has also produced good numbers of Bass this week, working the edges, leading into the timber with spinnerbaits, Jackalls and Blades has been good, while trolling hard bodies through the main bays of the dam has produced some good fish as well, Moogerah Dam continues to fish well with anglers picking up some nice Bass on tail spinners and blades, a few fish have also been taken in the timber on spinnerbaits and Maroon has also fished quite well, with live shrimp and soft plastics working well for the anglers.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Cooby is still fishing well for Yellowbelly, working the area out from the dam wall buoy line with TN60 Jackalls has produced some quality fish, the land based anglers have also caught a few, with bait being the best option for them. Glenlyon has improved again this week, with good numbers of Yellowbelly and Silver Perch landed, live Shrimp have again been the pick of the baits, while trolled hard bodies and Spinnerbaits have seen a few Cod caught, but they have only been around the 60-70cm mark. Coolmunda has again produced good numbers of Cod and Yellowbelly on trolled hard body lures and spinnerbaits, working the old creek beds and along the wall have still been the best spots to target. Leslie Dam is still fishing well all over the dam, trolling smaller hard body lures across from the dam wall and up the back of the dam past the Black Boys has worked well and the bait anglers are having similar success on a variety of bait with frozen saltwater yabbies landing most of the fish. 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 around the junction, while casting spinnerbaits around the timber and to the edges in both arms has produced some quality fish, while at Bjelke Peterson, casting reaction lures, like spinnerbaits and Jackalls around the timber has been a popular method and trolled hard bodies have worked well in the main basin.



GOLD COAST

Offshore fishing has again produced plenty of Kingies on knife jigs on the 50’s, Palm Beach and Mermaid Reefs has been good for Spotty Mackerel and out the front of the Pin in 50-80m of water has seen some smaller Black Marlin getting about. Inshore fishing has seen smaller Kingies and Trevally, early morning on the run in tide, in the Seaway, Whiting are still prominent around the mouth of the Coomera River and near the Council Chambers in the Nerang River, Jacks around the bridges throughout the canals and the southern Broadwater has again seen stacks of Sand Crabs getting about.



SUNSHINE COAST

Offshore fishing has seen some decent schools of Spotty Mackerel, Long Tail and Mac Tuna getting about, trolling livies and deep diving hard bodies has worked well on those fish, while there have been good reports of Coral Trout on Sunshine Reef. Inshore fishing has seen the passage at Caloundra producing some nice Flathead, the Maroochy River has been fishing well for Flathead, Trevally and Jacks, good numbers of Trevally, Jew, Tailor and Flathead at the mouth of the Noosa River, Whiting on surface poppers just inside the river mouth and the beaches have produced good numbers of quality Whiting and Dart.
