Report 5/6/15

Cressbrook Dam has been a bit quieter this week, but there’s still been some quality Bass landed, mainly on soft plastics. The Eagles Nest area has been a good spot to target and there are some fish suspended in 60ft of water in the main basin, which would be worth a try also. Somerset is still very quiet for the lure anglers, but there’s been a few Bass taking live bait in the timbered area at Kirkleigh. Boondooma Dam has produced some quality Bass on Tailspinners, Blades and Fly around the junction and Pelican Point, while working spinnerbaits tight to the trees in the Boyne arm has been effective as well. Bjelke Peterson has produced a few Bass on blades, in the deeper parts of the dam, Bass Point has also seen a few taken on trolled hard bodies. There are still several schools of Bass in the main basin at Moogerah Dam, rigging soft plastics on a 1/2oz jighead and working them slow and tight to the bottom will give the best results and ice jigs have also picked up a few.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Not much to report from Cooby Dam again this week, however Glenlyon continues to fish quite well, good numbers of Yellowbelly have been taken on frozen saltwater yabbies, 25-30ft of water seems to be the depth to look in, while bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies have produced some nice Cod around the timbered parts. 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, live shrimp and worms have worked the best. Leslie Dam remains quiet at the moment, with only low numbers of Yellowbelly taking live shrimp, near the Black Boys, in front of the boat ramps and up at Cod Alley have been the best spots to target, it’s been a lot harder for the lure anglers, with only a couple of fish caught on trolled hard bodies. Bjelke Peterson has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on trolled lures around Bass Point; the timbered areas of both arms of Boondooma have again been productive for Yellowbelly, with live bait working the best on these fish. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms, good numbers of quality Cod are taking bait and spinnerbaits, anywhere from the township through to Tallwood, low numbers of Yellowbelly have been taken on frozen saltwater yabbies in the Dumeresq River at Texas and the upper reaches of the Condamine River has produced some quality Yellowbelly and Cod on spinnerbaits and crays.

COASTAL FISHING

Conditions aren’t looking ideal for Coastal fishing this weekend, however offshore fishing has been productive at the Gold Coast during this week, with good numbers of Kingies, Amberjack and Snapper on the Northern 50’s and the 36’s have produced Trag Jew and Snapper. While inshore fishing has seen schools of Chopper Tailor in the Southport Seaway, Whiting and Flathead around Wavebreak Island, Jewies off the pipeline and Bream and Flathead have been prominent throughout the Jumpinpin area, while at the Sunny Coast, Snapper and Cobia have been prominent on Sunshine and Murphy’s Reefs and most of the reefs are holding a lot of Mack and Long Tail Tuna. Inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen Bream along the boardwalk, Flathead on soft plastics, along the sandbanks in the passage, Whiting and Flathead throughout most of the estuaries, poppers and metal slugs are picking up Trevally and Tailor at the mouth of the Noosa River and the beaches have been producing a few Tailor as well.
