TOOWOOMBA FISHING CLASSIC

Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Toowoomba Garden City, on their running of the Toowoomba Fishing Classic at Cressbrook Dam on the weekend. There were plenty of fish caught and by all accounts, everyone who attended, had an enjoyable day, well done to everyone involved with the day.

BASS

Somerset has seen big Bass taking live bait in the timbered area at Kirkleigh, Both arms are still a bit dirty at Boondooma Dam, using reaction lures around the timber has picked up the odd fish, but again, looking for schooled fish in the main basin would be your best bet, and targeting these fish with plastics, blades or tailspinners should produce the best results, Bjelke Peterson dam has produced some small Bass, off the edges, casting ¼ oz Blades, Moogerah has seen good numbers of Bass landed on the flats throughout the dam, using soft plastics, blades and tail spinners in 25-30ft of water, has provided the best results and working the weed beds with soft plastics has worked well at Maroon.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Cooby Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on ice jigs, blades, live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies throughout the dam and shore based fishing has produced a few fish as well. The fishing is still fairly good at Glenlyon, it has again produced a few Yellowbelly in the deeper parts, around the 35-40cm mark, with frozen saltwater yabbies, live shrimp and worms landing the most fish, while bigger spinnerbaits and Jackals have produced some nice Cod around 60 to 70cm, with a couple of fish nudging the metre mark. Coolmunda Dam has been fishing well for Yellowbelly this week, using bait in the deeper parts of the dam has produced the most fish, there has been a few smaller Cod landed as well, bait has been the best option, with live shrimp, frozen saltwater yabbies and cray tails working the best. In the Warwick area the fishing is a little slow at Leslie Dam, with a few Yellowbelly taken on live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies around the rock wall, and TN60 Jackalls have taken a few Cod around the 80cm mark, Bjelke Peterson has produced some quality Yellowbelly, around Bass Point, on spinnerbaits and blades, Boondooma produced a few fish on blades, ice jigs and live bait, with the deeper parts around the junction and into the Stuart arm proving to be the best spots. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi is still a bit quiet, although there has been the odd Yellowbelly taken on frozen saltwater yabbies and spinnerbaits, good numbers of smaller Cod are taking bait and Spinnerbaits at Bonshaw Weir and Cecil Plains and Yarramalong Weirs have fished well for Yellowbelly and Cod, with spinnerbaits and Jackals producing the most fish.

COASTAL FISHING

Offshore fishing has been good at the Gold Coast again this week, with good numbers of Kingies and Amberjack providing plenty of action on the N.E 50’s, Snapper and quality Red Emperor on the 24’s and the shelf has produced a few Blue Marlin. Inshore fishing has seen the Southport Seaway producing Mulloway on live bait at night, and also Kingies and Trevelly on the run in tide, good quality Bream in the deeper holes, Flathead on plastics around the Pin and Kalinga Bank and plenty of Gar hanging around the weed beds near Seaworld and Crab Island, while at the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has been pretty good again; with most reefs fishing well for Spotty Mackerel, Coral Trout, Sweetlip and Snapper. Inshore, the Maroochy River has produced Bream and Trevelly around most of the bridges, the passage at Caloundra is fishing well for Whiting and Mulloway, a few Flathead are taking plastics on the sand banks opposite the Power Boat Club, good numbers of Queenfish at the mouth of the Noosa River, a few Tailor starting to show up off the beaches and the Pelican Waters canals have seen plenty of Bream holding around any sort of structure.
