BASS

At Cressbrook Dam, working blades through the schooled fish just out from the campgrounds has worked well again, there’s still quite a few smaller fish with the odd bigger one in amongst them and the Eales Nest area has again seen a couple of better quality Bass landed as well. In Boondooma Dam, Blades and Spinnerbaits have been the go, with good numbers of Bass taken in the Stewart and Boyne arms, there’s no real big fish in amongst them, but there’s still plenty about. Not a lot has changed at Bjelke Peterson this week, casting Blades and Spinnerbaits to the edges at the bottom end of the dam has worked well, while working lures or using live shrimp around the timber has been good also, Moogerah has produced decent numbers along the edge of the timbered area, as well as the flats just out from the day use boat ramp, spinnerbaits and lipless crankbaits have again picked up most of the fish.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Cooby Dam produced low numbers of Yellowbelly over the past week, frozen saltwater yabbies, live shrimp and vertically jigged blades worked the best, just out from the dam wall buoy line, has been the best spot to target. Boondooma Dam also produced good numbers of quality Yellowbelly, the timbered area of the Boyne arm is still the spot to be, with bait and spinnerbaits accounting for the majority of the fish. While at Bjelke Peterson, using bait at the start of the timber and trolling hard bodies from the quarry to the day use boat ramp has proven successful. Coolmunda Dam also fished well this week, with a few Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and spinnerbaits, around the timber. Leslie Dam has continued to produce good numbers of Yellowbelly this week; bait has again worked well off the banks, with worms and frozen saltwater yabbies doing the job and trolling hard bodies at 15ft through suspended fish in the main basin has worked well for the lure anglers. The timber has been the most productive at Glenlyon this week, with plenty of Yellowbelly and the odd smaller Cod taking bait, hard bodies and spinnerbaits. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwind has improved this week, with good numbers of Yellowbelly taken from both the bank and boat; bait fishing has been the most successful, but the Cod are still a bit quiet and the Dumeresq produced a few smaller Yellowbelly on bait, mainly downstream of Texas.

COASTAL FISHING

The Gold Coast has produced Trag Jew and Spanish Mackerel on the 24’s and Pearl Perch and Yellowtail Kingies on the 50’s, while inshore has seen Flathead and Bream at the Aldershots, Mud Crabs throughout the system and Jewies at the mouth of the Pin Bar. While at the Sunny Coast, plenty of Long Tail Tuna and Spanish Mackerel on Caloundra 12 mile, Spotty and Spanish Mackerel on Murphys Reef, plenty of Sweetlip and smaller Snapper are starting to show up on most of the closer reefs and inshore fishing at Caloundra has produced Bream off Military Jetty and the boardwalk, quality Flathead drifting along the sand bars with bait or plastics. The Maroochy River has seen Trevally and decent sized Bream lurking around any sort of structure, the Noosa River has produced Flathead and Trevally at the river mouth, with Whiting and the odd Jack taken around the Ski Run and the rocky headlands have produced quite a few Jewies and smaller Snapper.
