BASS
Cressbrook Dam produced some decent numbers of Bass on the weekend, there’s a decent school just out from the campgrounds and blades have worked well on these fish, there are quite a few smaller fish with the odd bigger one in amongst them. Boondooma Dam continues to produce reasonable numbers of Bass, working blades, trolling hard bodies or using live Shrimp around the points throughout the dam and working spinnerbaits around the timber in the Stuart and Boyne arms has been very effective. Not a lot has changed at Bjelke Peterson this week, casting Blades and Spinnerbaits to the edges has worked well, while working lures or using live shrimp around the timber has been good also, Moogerah and Maroon are both fishing well, with anglers at Moogerah having success fishing the edge of the timbered area with TN60s and Piranhas and Maroon has seen live shrimp working the best, but the lure anglers had success along the weed edges while using spinnerbaits and soft plastics.
YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Cooby Dam is still producing a few Yellowbelly at the moment, looking in 40ft of water, out from the main point opposite the boatramp has been productive, with deep diving hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best, while trolling shallow diving lures just out from the weed edges, has produced a few as well. Boondooma Dam has also seen pretty good numbers of quality Yellowbelly throughout the dam, similar tactics as used for the Bass will give you success, while at Bjelke Peterson, trolling hard bodies or using bait around the points, drop-offs and timbered edges has proven successful. Coolmunda Dam has picked up a bit this week, with a few Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and trolled lures, working the old creek bed at the southern end of the dam has been a good spot to target and brighter coloured spinnerbaits, worked slowly around the timber has picked up some quality fish as well. Leslie Dam remains fairly quiet, with not too much to report. There’s only been a few legal Yellowbelly landed so far this week, the majority of these fish were taken on trolled hard body lures, there was also a few fish taken in the main basin on live shrimp. Glenlyon has been a little quiet also, with only low numbers of Yellowbelly and Silver Perch taking live shrimp and worms. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi is a lot clearer, which has seen some fairly good numbers of Yellowbelly and the odd smaller Murray Cod, taken on frozen saltwater yabbies, spinnerbaits and lipless crankbaits, the Dumeresq at Texas has seen a few Yellowbelly taking bait, while a few Cod have been hitting surface lures; and locally, the Condamine has started to see a few fish landed as the water clarity improves, it’s still not easy, but the upper reaches has been the better area to target.

COASTAL FISHING
The wind is looking like dropping off by Saturday, so until then it won’t be very nice at all. Earlier in the week, the Gold Coast continued to produce Mackerel, as well as Yellowfin Tuna on trolled lures, from Jumpinpin right through to Mermaid Reef, a few Pearl Perch were starting to show up on the 50’s and the odd Snapper had been landed on the 18’s and 24’s. The Seaway is producing Mulloway and Kingies, on the run out tide; the weed beds throughout the Broadwater are producing plenty of Squid and Gar and the southern Broadwater has seen plenty of Sand Crabs getting about. While at the Sunshine Coast, Spanish and Spotty Mackerel are about in good numbers at 12 Mile and Chardons Reefs and Sunshine Reef has produced Long Tail and Yellowfin Tuna, as well as a mixed bag of reef fish, while inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen a few Flathead and Bream taken off the Boardwalk, quality Whiting around Military Jetty, Jacks and Trevally are biting on live bait throughout the canals, and the Noosa River has produced quality Jacks and Flathead on plastics, at the river mouth, a few small Whiting are taking fresh saltwater yabbies and fresh Squid has picked up some quality Jewies off the beaches.
