Not a lot to report from Cressbrook Dam this week, there’s still quite a few fish schooled up, just out from the campgrounds and working blades through these will pick up the odd one. In Boondooma Dam, Spinnerbaits and live shrimp have worked the best this week, with good numbers of Bass taken mainly in the Boyne arm. Smaller hard bodies and spinnerbaits worked around Bass Point have produced the most fish at Bjelke Peterson this week, Somerset Dam has really fired this week, with some cracking Bass up to 55cm taken around Pelican Point, soft vibes, tailspinners and spinnerbaits have picked up the majority of the fish and Moogerah has again produced decent numbers along the edge of the timbered area, as well as the flats just out from the day use boat ramp, soft plastics and soft vibes have worked the best on these fish.

Cooby Dam has again seen 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 again been the best spot to target. Boondooma Dam has again seen good numbers of quality Yellowbelly in the timbered area of the Boyne arm, with bait and spinnerbaits still working well on those fish, while at Bjelke Peterson, trolling hard bodies or using bait around the points, drop-offs and also in the timber has proven successful. Coolmunda Dam fished well again this week, with a few Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and spinnerbaits, around the timber. Leslie Dam is fishing reasonably well for this time of year, with anglers having success on both lures and bait, frozen saltwater yabbies, live shrimp and worms are all working well, while blades, lipless crankbaits and SMAK hard bodies worked well for the lure anglers. Glenlyon has produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, frozen saltwater yabbies, live shrimp and trolled hard bodies have all been effective, there’s also been a few Cod taken on trolled hard bodies and they have mainly been around the 70-75cm mark. As for the rivers, the Dumeresq at Texas has seen a few Yellowbelly and the odd undersize Cod taking black and red or black and purple spinnerbaits; and locally, the upper reaches of the Condamine has produced some quality Cod, with spinnerbaits picking up most of the fish.

The Gold Coast has produced Trag Jew and Snapper on the 24’s and out wider has seen Pearl Perch and Mahi Mahi on the 50’s, while inshore has seen Flathead and Bream at the Aldershots and Kalinga Bank, Jewies and Trevally along the northern wall of the Seaway, on the incoming tide and there’s still a few Muddies about the creeks. While at the Sunny Coast, plenty of Spotty and Spanish Mackerel on North Reef, Snapper and Sweetlip on Caloundra 5 Mile and Currumundi Reef and inshore fishing at Caloundra has produced Bream off the boardwalk, quality Flathead at the bar entrance, on the run out tide, smaller Trevally in the Pelican Waters canals. The Maroochy River has seen Trevally and Jewies at the Cod Hole, the Noosa River has produced Bream and Whiting in the upper reaches, while Trevally and Queenfish have been taking live Herring along the rock walls.
