Cressbrook Dam has continued to produce reasonable numbers of Bass, mainly on blades and the odd one on soft plastics, look in about 30ft of water, out from the boat ramp, out off Deer Island and also out from the steeper banks in both arms of the dam. Somerset has again seen big Bass taking live bait in the timbered area at Kirkleigh, some decent schools of fish are showing up in both arms of Boondooma Dam, blades and ice jigs have worked the best on these fish, Bjelke Peterson dam has produced a few Bass around Bass Point and early morning has seen spinnerbaits picking up some decent fish around the timber. There are several schools of Bass in the main basin at Moogerah Dam, they were a bit subdued last weekend, but have become more active during this week, blades, plastics, mask vibes, ice-jigs and tail spinners are all working well. Maroon has also seen some nice fish landed, working plastics around the weed banks, should give good results.

Not much to report from Cooby Dam this week, however the fishing has been pretty good at Glenlyon, the upper reaches of the dam have produced Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies, while bigger spinnerbaits have produced some nice Cod up to 105cm, around the timber, in 6-8ft of water. Coolmunda Dam has fished alright again this week, looking in the deeper parts of the dam and around the timber has produced the most fish, there has been a few smaller Cod landed again, bait has been the best option, with live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best. Leslie Dam has been a little quiet, with only low numbers of Yellowbelly landed over the past week, the main basin opposite the boat ramps has been a popular area to target, with live shrimp being the pick of the baits, and for the land based anglers, there was a few Silver Perch and Eel-tailed Catfish taken off the banks. Bjelke Peterson has produced some quality Yellowbelly throughout the dam, on frozen saltwater yabbies, the timbered areas of both arms of Boondooma have produced a few fish on blades, ice jigs and live bait. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms, good numbers of smaller Cod are taking bait and lipless crankbaits, upstream of the township and the Condamine River has produced some quality Yellowbelly and Cod on spinnerbaits and crays in the Warwick area.

Offshore fishing has been good at the Gold Coast again this week, with good numbers of Kingies and Snapper on the Northern 50’s, live baits are working well for Snapper on the 18’s and 24’s and there’s still the odd Spanish Mackerel getting about the 36’s. While inshore fishing has seen schools of Chopper Tailor in the Southport Seaway, small Queenies and Flathead around Wavebreak Island and Jewies and Flathead around Crusoe Island, at Jumpinpin, while at the Sunny Coast, Snapper and Cobia have been prominent on most reefs and North Reef is holding a lot of smaller Mackerel. Inshore fishing has seen all of the rivers producing good numbers of Bream and Flathead on soft plastics, the Boardwalk at Caloundra is fishing well for Bream and Trevally, while surface lures and metal slices are picking up smaller Queenies in the Pelican Waters canals.
