BASS
Cressbrook Dam is fishing a bit tough for Bass, the best option seems to be trolling darker coloured hard bodies along the buoy line and across to Deer Island, it’s also worth a look near the eagles nest and into the Cressbrook Creek arm of the dam. Somerset Dam has again seen some good catches over the past week; Queen Street was again a popular spot for the anglers, where hopping blades and Soft Vibes have been effective. Trolling hard bodies from the junction to the start of the timber in the Stuart arm has again worked well at Boondooma this week, while casting Spinnerbaits and Jackalls around the trees, in the upper reaches of that same arm has been good also. Similar at Bjelke Peterson, it has again produced good numbers of Bass, working the edges with spinnerbaits, Jackalls and Blades, while trolling hard bodies through the main bays of the dam has produced some good fish as well.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby is still fishing well for Yellowbelly, working the Western bank and into the northern arm has been popular, while TN60 Jackalls have produced the majority of the fish, the land based anglers have also caught a few, with frozen saltwater yabbies being the best option for them. Glenlyon has fished well 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. 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 bodies 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 to the edges has been a popular method and trolled hard bodies have worked well in the main basin. As for the rivers, locally the Condamine has produced a few Yellowbelly and Cod, mainly on the Southern part of the downs.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has again produced plenty of Kingies on knife jigs on the 50’s, good numbers of Dolphin Fish on the 36’s and 50’s and out the front of the Pin has again 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 Hinze Dam has been firing for Bass.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has seen some decent schools of Spotty Mackerel getting about, casting metal slugs and running them back through the fish has worked the best, and a few reports of mixed reef fish on 12 Mile and Sunshine Reefs. Inshore fishing has seen the Bar entrance at Caloundra producing some nice Flathead, while in the passage, smaller Jewies are holding in the deeper holes, the Maroochy River has been fishing well for Jacks around the creek mouths Flathead, Trevally and Jewies at the mouth of the Noosa River, Whiting on surface poppers just inside the river mouth and the beaches have been fishing quite well, with good reports of bigger Dart on the early morning high tides and also a few Whiting and Flathead on the run out tide along the closer gutters.
