Still a few quality Bass about Cressbrook Dam at the moment, targeting the fish with Blades and soft plastics, working the points in the main basin and over towards Deer Island, as well as parts of the Bull Creek arm of the dam, has worked well. At Boondooma Dam, Pelican point, the junction and the Stuart arm are producing Bass on ice jigs and soft vibes. Also this week, Yellow and Brown, yellow and green and black and silver deep divers are working in 19 - 25ft of water trolling the banks in the Stuart arm and the main basin. The fishing is still reasonable at Bjelke Peterson, casting blades and soft plastics to the edges and working them close to the bottom, early morning and late afternoon has produced a few fish and trolling hard bodies through the deeper parts of the dam has been productive as well. Somerset has again seen quality Bass taken in 15 to 30 foot of water around the Pelican Point area, trolling hard bodies has worked well, while working tailspinners and spinnerbaits back to the boat, after a long cast, has picked up some decent fish also and Moogerah has again produced decent numbers in and around the timbered area, as well as the ridge that runs out from the camp grounds boat ramp, soft plastics, tailspinners and soft vibes have worked the best on these fish.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD.

Cressbrook Dam has produced a few Yellowbelly around the Eagles Nest area, with live shrimp and spinnerbaits working on those fish. In Boondooma Dam, the Yellowbelly have been biting in the bays throughout the main basin, as well as along any sort of drop-off, live Shrimp have been the best bait, 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 has fished well again this week, with a few Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms, with the odd fish caught on trolled hard bodies. Glenlyon Dam has seen some nice Yellowbelly and Silver Perch taking frozen saltwater yabbies in 15 to 20ft of water, there were some nice Cod up to 90cm taken on trolled hard bodies and bigger spinnerbaits. Leslie Dam has seen reasonable amounts of Yellowbelly landed this week, the deeper parts of the main basin has been the most productive area, while frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and even blades all proved to be effective, there was a cracking 106cm Cod landed as well. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River at Goondiwindi has seen some quality Cod to 85cm taking spinnerbaits up and downstream of the township, Yellowbelly have been a bit quieter, with only a few landed on bait and smaller hard body lures. Plenty of Yellowbelly and a few Silver Perch coming out of the Dumeresq River at Texas at the moment, live worms and frozen prawns have worked the best for these fish and the Condamine River, around Pratten has seen some quality Yellowbelly taking smaller hard body lures and spinnerbaits.

COASTAL FISHING

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has seen Spanish Mackerel and Yellowfin Tuna on the 24’s; and the 26’s have produced Wahoo and some decent sized Snapper. Inshore fishing has seen quite a few Kingies hitting micro jigs around the pipeline, School Jew along the north wall of the Seaway and the Pin has produced good numbers of Flathead on bait and plastics. While at the Sunshine Coast, Spanish Mackerel and Long Tail Tuna are about in good numbers on most of the reefs, Currumundi Reef has produced good amounts of mixed reef fish and North and Sunshine Reefs are seeing a few Cobia and smaller Snapper getting about, while inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen big Flathead at the bar entrance, some good quality Bream starting to show up in the passage, quality Whiting at night on the sand banks, near the Power Boat Club, Jacks and Trevally are biting on live bait and plastics throughout the canals, and the Noosa River has produced good numbers of Bream, Whiting and Flathead throughout, with some bigger Flathead around the river mouth, and the river mouth has also seen Queenies, Trevally and Tailor hitting metal slices and surface lures.
