Report 12/2/15

Post by subeditor » Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:40 pm

Somerset Dam has produced good quality Bass this week; Pelican Point, Queen Street and Kirkleigh have been the areas to target, working spinnerbaits and blades slow and tight to the bottom in 28-40ft of water has picked up the majority of the fish. The South Burnett dams have fished well again, at Boondooma, trolling hard bodies in 30-35ft of water from the main basin through to Pelican Point has produced good sized fish, while working 5/8oz spinnerbaits around the timber in the Stuart arm, has been good also. At Bjelke Peterson, working Blades, mask vibes and plastics in 15-25ft of water, around the points and drop-offs in the main basin has been good, while trolling dark coloured hard bodies in the same areas has produced decent numbers as well. Cressbrook Dam was a bit quieter this week, working the weedy edges with spinnerbaits early morning/late afternoon has again produced a few fish, also look for fish suspended off the steeper points in the main bay and around the Eagles Nest area, hopping soft vibes or blades, trolling smaller profile hard bodies, or working spinnerbaits tight to the bottom will give the best chance of picking up a few of these fish, and Maroon Dam produced good numbers of Bass along the southern bank, just off the weed edges, using spinnerbaits, beetle spins and soft plastics.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby has fished quite well this week, with some quality Yellowbelly taking TN60 Jackalls, cast to the edges. Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson have continued to produce good numbers of Yellowbelly, working the same areas as with the Bass, will see you pick up some quality Yellowbelly also, and these fish will fall for the same tactics as used for the Bass. Glenlyon is a bit quiet at the moment, there has been the odd Yellowbelly taken on trolled hard bodies, live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies, there’s only been a couple of Cod about, with spinnerbaits working the best on these. Coolmunda is still quiet due to the dirty water from the recent inflow, there has been the odd fish taking frozen saltwater yabbies on the drop offs to the old creek beds, the water is starting to clear, so hopefully in the next few weeks the fish will become a bit more active. Leslie Dam has been a bit quiet again this week, but anglers did pick up the odd Yellowbelly on frozen Saltwater Yabbies, blades and trolled hard bodies in the main basin and also around the Black Boys, there was a 10kg Cod caught on a Predatek up near the dam wall. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi is still a bit quiet, with only the odd Yellowbelly caught; the Dumaresq River from Texas downstream to Yelarbon has fished alright again for Yellowbelly, with spinnerbaits and hard bodies proving to be effective.

COASTAL FISHING
Offshore fishing has been almost non-existent this week, due to the windy conditions, however, getting out early morning, before the wind really picked up, saw a few Spanish Mackerel taking trolled diving lures on the 24’s, as well as Palm and Mermaid Reefs, the Seaway has again produced School Jew and Kingies on live bait, good quality Jacks, up to 70cm in the Nerang and Coomera Rivers on soft plastics and Flathead at the Pin, while at the Sunshine Coast, Sunshine Reef produced mixed bags of reef fish, Spotty and Spanish Mackerel are getting about also, but again, the conditions haven’t been favorable for offshore fishing and inshore has seen the passage at Caloundra fishing well for Flathead, Jacks throughout most of the estuaries, Trevally in the upper reaches of the Noosa River and the beaches have been a popular spot for Whiting.
