Report 20/2/15

Post by subeditor » Fri Feb 20, 2015 9:22 am

The weather outlook isn't great for this weekend, so it may be a weekend for getting the gear ready for the next trip!!!

BASS
The South Burnett dams have continued to produce reasonable numbers, even with the windy conditions, the fish are quite scattered throughout Boondooma, but there are still good size Bass being landed, with quite a few smaller fish in amongst them, casting Blades, Soft Plastics and Jackalls, as well as trolling hard bodies between 15 and 20 feet have proven to be the most successful methods. There are quite a few smaller Bass coming out of Bjelke Peterson; trolling hard bodies around Bass Point and the banks opposite have been the most successful. Somerset has again produced reasonable catches of Bass over the past week, Pelican Point, Queen Street and around the timber at Kirkleigh have been the pick of the spots, while casting Blades, Jackalls and Spinnerbaits, or trolling hard bodies have been the best methods and Moogerah Dam produced decent numbers of Bass on the weekend, with slow rolled soft plastics working the best down there.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has seen a few fish holding in deeper water and trolled hard bodies, vertically worked blades or frozen saltwater yabbies have been effective. Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson have both produced pretty good numbers of Yellowbelly, the majority of fish are being caught on bait, however, casting Jackalls and Spinnerbaits, and trolling hard bodies is working well. Glenlyon has fished well over the past week, with some nice Cod around the mid 70cm to 80cm mark, these have been caught on Spinnerbaits, trolled hard bodies and bait, Yellowbelly and Silver Perch have been plentiful, but they have mainly been coming on bait. Coolmunda has seen the odd fish taking frozen saltwater yabbies and trolled hard bodies, on the drop offs to the old creek beds and also along the wall area. Leslie Dam has produced a few Yellowbelly on frozen Saltwater Yabbies, in front of the Washpool camping area, good size Silver Perch on live worms and there were a couple of Cod taken on Jackalls near the boulders, just out from the buoy line. As for the rivers, the upper reaches of the Condamine have produced a few fish on bait and lures, the Dumeresq at Texas is still producing reasonable numbers downstream of the township, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi is still fairly quiet at the moment, with only the odd Yellowbelly falling for frozen saltwater yabbies and finally, the Goondiwindi Fish Restockers released 90,000 Yellowbelly into the river during January and February, all of the funds are raised by raffles conducted at the Railway Hotel on Friday nights.

COASTAL FISHING
Very limited opportunities offshore at the moment, however prior to the current weather system, the Southport Seaway was producing good numbers of Jewies and Jacks on strip baits, plenty of Whiting around the river mouths, Flathead around Gold Bank and Crusoe Island at the Pin and the creek mouths have seen good numbers of muddies filling the crab pots.
