BASS
Cressbrook Dam is still a bit patchy, again, there has been some quality fish taking spinnerbaits and Jackalls around the edges, early morning and late afternoon, out from the boat ramp and across to the buoy line are still worth a look, the Cressbrook Creek arm has produced a few fish as well, with blades and tailspinners proving to be effective on these fish. Boondooma Dam has again produced some decent catches of Bass, although there are a lot of smaller fish about. Ice jigs and tailspinners worked well at Leizagangs, Pelican Point and The Junction, while bait accounted for a few in the timbered area of the Boyne arm. The schooled fish were shutting down fairly quickly, so the best option was to keep moving around the different locations. Heaps of fish caught at Bjelke Peterson last weekend, casting Blades and Spinnerbaits around the timbered edges and also working blades and tailspinners on the flats, near Bass Point were the best options, there were also a lot of smaller fish caught here as well.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has again produced a few quality Yellowbelly, near the dam wall buoy line, and along the bank in the northern arm of the dam, TN60 Jackalls, Piranhas and frozen saltwater yabbies have worked the best on these fish. Boondooma has produced good numbers of Yellowbelly again, the majority of fish are being caught on bait, with Leizagangs and the timbered areas of the Stuart and Boyne producing the majority of the fish, but trolling hard body lures from The Junction, to the timber in the Stuart arm, should pick you up a few fish as well. Coolmunda Dam has fished quite well over the past week or so, we have received several reports of quality fish being landed on lures and bait. There were good numbers of legal sized Cod and plenty of Yellowbelly landed over the weekend on spinnerbaits and larger hard body lures. There was a slight improvement on previous weeks at Leslie, with reports of some quality Yellowbelly landed in the main basin, along the western bank opposite the concrete boat ramps, these fish were landed on shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies. The lure anglers also had more success than previous weeks, with blades and TN60 Jackalls working well around the Black Boys. Glenlyon produced a few Yellowbelly and Silver Perch on live worms and frozen saltwater yabbies, while trolled hard bodies accounted for a few Yellowbelly and some nice Cod, including a 97cm fish. As for the rivers, casting spinnerbaits around the snags has worked well on the Cod, in the Dumeresq River at Texas and the Macintyre at Goondi saw a few Cod and Yellowbelly taking worms and frozen saltwater yabbies.

COASTAL FISHING
Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has seen plenty of Spanish Mackerel on Mermaid Reef and the 24’s, while Pearl Perch and Kingfish have been prominent on the 50’s and the closer bait grounds have produced good numbers of Tuna. Inshore fishing has seen the Southport Seaway producing good sized Jewies and Jacks along the rock walls, a few Flathead and Whiting at the Pin, Kingfish and Trevally around the Pipeline at the Spit and the Jumpinpin Bar has seen plenty of Sharks, while at the Sunny Coast, look for Mackerel on the closer reefs, while Murphy’s and Sunshine Reefs have again produced quality Snapper and Sweetlip. Inshore fishing has seen Grunter Bream off the Boardwalk, the sand banks near Bells Creek are producing plenty of Whiting, Trevally and Jacks around structure in the Maroochy and Noosa Rivers and all of the river mouths are seeing a few Tailor getting about.
