Report 10/7/15

Post by subeditor » Fri Jul 10, 2015 11:22 am

There’s still some good shows of fish at Cressbrook Dam at the moment; although they have been a bit harder to catch, particularly for the lure anglers, the steeper points in the main basin and around the Eagles Nest area have been the best places to look, while live shrimp, soft plastics and tail spinners will give the best chance of landing a couple. Nothing much has changed 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 around Pelican Point, at Bjelke Peterson, blades cast to the edges around Bass Point and spinnerbaits worked around the start of the timber have produced good numbers. Moogerah is still producing good numbers of Bass on soft plastics, throughout the main basin, as well as in the timber to the west of the day use boat ramp, 25-35ft of water still seems to be a good depth to work in, 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 again this week, with anglers picking up some decent Bass around the weed pockets, soft plastics and crank baits are still working well, and blades have also accounted for a few fish.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD

Not a lot has changed at Cooby Dam this week, there has been a few Yellowbelly taking blades and frozen saltwater yabbies in the deeper parts of the dam, while blades and soft vibes have again produced a few fish around the weed edges, early morning and late afternoon. Reasonable numbers of Yellowbelly at Coolmunda Dam again this week, the drop-offs to the old creek beds, around the timber and also along the rock wall have been good spots to target; frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms have worked the best, while trolled hard bodies picked up a few smaller Cod. Not a lot has changed at Glenlyon this week, frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms have again been effective for Yellowbelly, 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 and the odd Cod taking frozen saltwater yabbies in the main basin and trolled hard bodies accounted for a few Cod as well. Boondooma has seen good quality Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp, around the timber, in both arms and also in the deeper parts of the main basin. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has again seen a few Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits, while frozen saltwater yabbies have worked well for Yellowbelly and Silver Perch, the Dumeresq at Texas has seen spinnerbaits picking up a few Cod, while frozen saltwater yabbies have picked up good numbers of Yellowbelly and the Condamine River from Warwick through to Dalby has produced some good quality Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

COASTAL FISHING

Offshore fishing has been fairly good again at the Gold Coast this week, with the 50’s southeast of the Seaway producing good numbers of Amberjack, Pearl Perch, Tusk Fish and Kingies. Inshore fishing has seen the Southport Seaway producing a few Kingies along the northern wall; quality Flathead and Bream around Wavebreak Island and throughout the Jumpinpin area and Squid have been prominent on the weed beds at night, throughout the broadwater. While at the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has been pretty good again; plenty of Snapper and Grassy Sweetlip on 12 Mile Reef and the wider reefs have all produced plenty of Pearl Perch, Yellowfin Tuna and Jewies. Inshore fishing has seen Bream throughout the Passage, Whiting on the sand flats around the Power Boat Club; and plenty of Bream, Flathead and Jewies throughout the Maroochy and Noosa Rivers.
