BASS
A bit quieter at Cressbrook this week, but it’s still worth a look out off Deer Island, around the steeper points throughout the main basin and also from the Eagles Nest through to the buoy line in the Cressbrook Creek arm, if you find fish, try targeting them with smaller hard bodies, soft plastics and blades and live shrimp are always a good option out there. Not a lot has changed at Somerset, using bait around the timber at Kirkleigh is still the best option. The fishing was fairly tough at Boondooma this week, however there were some decent Bass up to 2kg caught. The most productive areas were the weed edges in the Stuart and Boyne arms, while spinnerbaits, crank baits and jerk baits all worked well and there were also a few Saratoga caught in the timbered area of both arms. Moogerah Dam has continued to fish well, with anglers still landing some quality Bass throughout the dam, mainly in the afternoon, soft plastics and ice-jigs are working the best, with blades and soft vibes also accounting for a few fish, and at Maroon, there were a few quality Bass landed in the timber, to the east of the boat ramp on live shrimp, while weedless rigged soft plastics also worked well around the weed beds.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly taken in the deeper parts of the dam, with ZX blades and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best and it’s still worth a try with hard bodies and bait around the weed edges. Glenlyon is still producing reasonable numbers of Yellowbelly; vertically worked Blades have gone well on these fish, while frozen saltwater yabbies have produced a few for the bait anglers and some decent Cod have been taken around the timber, with trolled hard bodies and Spinnerbaits working well on those fish. Frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp have been effective for Yellowbelly along the rock wall at Coolmunda Dam this week and trolled hard bodies have picked up a few legal sized Cod, with the biggest fish measuring 87cm. Leslie Dam has seen good results over the past week, with some quality Yellowbelly, including a few over the 50cm mark, landed in the main basin, the majority of these fish have been taken on live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies, while soft vibes, blades and lipless crankbaits have also been working well. There’s also been a few landed towards the back of the dam, but most of the action has been in closer to the boat ramps. Boondooma has seen good numbers of quality Yellowbelly taking spinnerbaits and Jackalls, mainly in the Boyne River arm of the dam. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has seen reasonable numbers of Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits and frozen saltwater yabbies have accounted for a few Yellowbelly, the Dumeresq at Texas has also seen a few Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits, and the Warwick and Pratten reaches of the Condamine have produced good numbers of Yellowbelly and some quality Cod on spinnerbaits, frozen saltwater yabbies and cray tails.

COASTAL FISHING
At the Gold Coast, offshore fishing has again seen a bit of action this week, with the 36’s and 50’s producing good numbers of Amberjack and Snapper on drift baits and jigs, and the 18’s and 24’s have seen a few Cobia and Trag Jew getting about. Inshore fishing has seen the Southport Seaway producing Tailor and Trevally on the tide changes, heaps of Gar and Squid on the weed banks throughout the Broadwater; and quality Bream and Flathead are taking bait and soft plastics throughout the Jumpinpin area, with the runout tide being the best time to target these fish. As for the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has been pretty good again; the inner reefs have all produced Snapper, Cobia and Red Throat Sweetlip, while Sunshine and North reefs have produced the better quality Snapper. Inshore fishing has seen the Maroochy River producing Bream, Trevally and Tailor around the bridges and rock bars, Caloundra is fishing well for Luderick off the Boardwalk, Flathead and Bream throughout the passage, while at Noosa, plenty of action in the river, with Trevally and Tailor smashing surface poppers, good numbers of Flathead, with bigger fish showing up after dark, plenty of Bream around any sort of structure and a few Jewies have been taken off the beaches.
