Still a few Bass around at Cressbrook Dam this week; it has produced a few fish on live Shrimp, off the steeper points in the main basin, while soft plastics and shrimp have been successful around the Eagles Nest area. Still quiet at Somerset, with live shrimp picking up a few fish around the timber at Kirkleigh. Plenty of quality Bass up to 50cm plus at Boondooma this week, with spinnerbaits and Jackalls cast to the edges picking up a lot of the fish, while Blades and Tailspinners have worked well on the flats, blades and live shrimp have picked up a few Bass at Bjelke Peterson, Moogerah is still producing a few Bass on soft plastics, throughout the main basin, in 25-35ft of water, it’s also worth trying around the weed edges early morning and late afternoon with spinnerbaits and crank baits and Maroon Dam has produced a few fish this week, with anglers picking up some decent Bass around the weed pockets, soft plastics and crank baits are working the best, with blades also accounting for a few fish.


Cooby Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly taking blades and frozen saltwater yabbies in the deeper parts of the dam, while blades and soft vibes have produced a few fish around the weed edges, early morning and late afternoon. Reasonable numbers of Yellowbelly and Silver Perch at Coolmunda Dam this week, the drop-offs to the old creek beds and also along the rock wall have been good spots to target. Frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms have been effective for Yellowbelly at Glenlyon, with some nice Cod up to 80cm taken on trolled hard bodies. A bit quiet at Leslie Dam again this week, with low numbers of Yellowbelly taking TN60 Jackalls, cast to the edges, there’s still a few fish taking frozen saltwater yabbies in the main basin and trolled hard bodies accounted for a few Cod up to 75cm, along the rock wall, near the buoy line. Boondooma has seen good quality Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp, around the timber, in the Stuart River arm of the dam and Bjelke Peterson has seen a few fish taken on bait around the timber and also on trolled hard bodies in the main basin. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River, upstream of Goondiwindi has seen good numbers of Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits, while frozen saltwater yabbies have worked well for Yellowbelly up to 45cm in the town reaches, much the same for the Dumeresq at Texas, surface lures have been effective for Cod, while frozen saltwater yabbies have picked up good numbers of Yellowbelly and the upper reaches of the Condamine River have produced some good quality Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.


Offshore fishing has been good again at the Gold Coast, with the 18’s and 24’s east of the Seaway producing Snapper and Cobia and the northern 50’s have been good for Amberjack, Samson Fish and bigger Snapper. Inshore fishing saw the Southport Seaway producing a few Kingies, Tailor and Trevally on live baits, along the rock walls; quality Flathead and Bream throughout the Jumpinpin area and also throughout most of the estuaries at the Gold Coast. While at the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has been pretty good again; plenty of Snapper and Cobia on 12 Mile Reef, Red Throat Sweetlip and Snapper at Caloundra wide and the wider reefs have all produced plenty of Pearl Perch and Trag Jew. Inshore fishing has seen Bream and Flathead off the Boardwalk, inside the bar entrance at Caloundra and also at the mouth of the Maroochy and Noosa Rivers, plenty of Trevally on surface lures and live bait throughout all of the estuaries and some decent Whiting have been caught on the sand flats around the Power Boat Club.
