MILLMERRAN CARP BUSTER COMP
I thought I would start with some stats from the Millmerran Carp Buster Comp 2 weeks ago. There was a total of 449 fish caught, adding up to an overall weight of 280kg. The biggest was 4.45kg and the most Carp caught by an adult was 50. They are hoping to make it a twice yearly event, which will probably see another event in Sept/Oct this year. Well done to everyone involved in organising the event and those of you who participated.

BASS
Cressbrook Dam has produced quite a few smaller Bass this week, out from the boat ramp and across to the buoy line has been a good area to target, while the Cressbrook Creek arm is still worth a look as well and working Blades and plastics through these fish has provided the best results. Boondooma Dam has again produced some decent catches of Bass; there’s still a lot of smaller fish about. Ice jigs, soft plastics and tailspinners have again worked well at Leizagangs, Pelican Point and The Junction, while bait and spinnerbaits accounted for a few in the timbered area of the Boyne and Stuart arms. Bass are still fairly active in Bjelke Peterson, casting Jackals, Blades and Spinnerbaits around the timbered edges has produced quality fish, while trolling hard bodies on the drop-offs has seen a few landed as well. Somerset Dam has produced some quality Bass over the past week, with the biggest reported at 56cm, the start of the timber at Kirkleigh and Pelican Point were the hot spots last weekend, while trolled hard bodies and live shrimp worked the best and Moogerah saw some quality Bass landed towards the back of the dam, with blades, tail spinners and plastics all working well.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has seen the odd Yellowbelly taking Ecogear ZX blades, just out from the dam wall buoy line; trolled lures and frozen saltwater yabbies have also produced a few decent fish along the right hand bank, just out from the buoy line. Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson continue to produce good numbers of quality Yellowbelly, the Stuart and Boyne arms have been the spots to target the fish in Boondooma, with live shrimp and trolled hard bodies picking up the best numbers, while at Bjelke Peterson, the points and timbered areas have provided the best catches. Coolmunda Dam has seen some good quality Yellowbelly taken in the timber on saltwater yabbies, Jackalls and spinnerbaits, good size Silver Perch on live worms, but the Cod have been a bit quiet. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly being landed on both lures and bait, most of the fish are holding close to the bottom and Blades and Mask Vibes have been working the best on these fish, there’s good numbers holding in the rocky structure across from the dam wall and frozen saltwater yabbies have accounted for some quality fish around the Black Boys. Glenlyon is still producing good numbers of Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms, the Cod have been a bit quiet, but there was a couple caught at Stockyard point on Spinnerbaits. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River at Goondi has been a bit quiet this week, with only a few Yellowbelly taken on bait in the town reaches and the Dumeresq at Texas has produced reasonable numbers of Cod on spinnerbaits, while bait accounted for a few Yellowbelly.

COASTAL FISHING
Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has continued to produce Mackerel on trolled lures and drift baits from the front of the Seaway right through to Mermaid Reef and a bit wider of the 50’s has produced heaps of Blue Marlin on trolled skirts. The Seaway has seen good numbers of Jewies on the incoming tide, on live bait, there’s also been a few Kingies in amongst them, plenty of good sized Whiting in the Broadwater, and Flathead have been taking soft plastics at Kalinga Bank. While at the Sunshine Coast, Spanish and Spotty Mackerel are still about in big numbers, right along the coast, trolling lures has been the best method, while inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen plenty of big Whiting on the flats in the Passage and Flathead and Bream off the boardwalk, Trevally in the Pelican Waters canals, the Maroochy River has seen a few Threadfin and Blue Salmon getting about, Jacks around the bridge pylons, plenty of Flathead, Trevally and Jewies at the mouth of the Noosa River and good numbers of Jewies off the beaches as well.
