BASS
Cressbrook Dam fished well last week and into Saturday with some decent numbers of fish landed out from the point off the camp ground and across towards the yellow buoy, live shrimp provided the best results, but there was also a couple landed on soft plastics. A few fish are starting to show up at Somerset Dam, Pelican Point, Eagles Nest, Queen Street and the start of the timber at Kirkleigh are the better spots, with live shrimp also working the best at this dam. At Boondooma, the fish have moved from the edges and into the deeper water, try soft plastics and mask vibes around Pelican Point for the best results and at Maroon, the Bass have mainly been around the edges and weed pockets, with soft plastics and small suspending minnows proving to be the most effective.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Not a lot happening at Glenlyon this week, with only a couple of Yellowbelly taken on live shrimp. Coolmunda saw only a few Yellowbelly taken on bait around the timber. Leslie Dam didn’t see too much fishing in the latter part of the weekend and into the start of the week; angers who fished on Saturday landed some quality Yellowbelly on lures, in approximately 50ft of water, blades and soft vibes worked the best for the lure anglers, while shrimp worked the best for the bait anglers. There were also a couple of legal sized Murray Cod landed on trolled hard body lures in the main basin and the most successful spots were opposite the dam wall and near the Ski Club. Boondooma Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly and Silver Perch taken on live shrimp, Jackals and Spinnerbaits in the timbered areas of both arms of the dam. Bjelke Peterson produced low numbers of Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies around the timbered parts. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondi has produced Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and a few Cod up to 70cm on cray tails, and the upper reaches of the Condamine River have produced a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

COASTAL FISHING
Offshore fishing has been pretty good again, with Snapper, Cobia and Trag Jew taken on the 18’s and 24’s, and for anyone who has ventured out further, there has been a few Kingies, Amberjack and Pearl Perch on the 50’s, while inshore, has seen the Seaway fishing well for Jewies at night, Tailor, Trevally and Kingfish early morning, on the run in tide, quality Flathead at Kalinga Bank, Jewies and Tailor inside the Jumpinpin Bar and Squid and Gar are plentiful around the weed banks throughout the Broadwater, while at the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen the northern grounds producing some quality Sweetlip, Caloundra 12 mile has produced some good Snapper and the Barwon Banks and Caloundra Wide have been the places to go for a few Pearl Perch and Cobia. Inshore fishing has seen Gar starting to show up in the Mooloolah River, the entrance to Lake Weyba has been producing a few Flathead, the Woods Bay area has been good for a few Trevally and Tailor, the Passage and Pelican Waters have produced Bream and Flathead and on the beaches, Tailor have started to show up in reasonable size and numbers, Bream have also been worth chasing with some good quality fish being caught.

FRASER ISLAND
Dart and Whiting in the gutters at low tide and Chopper Tailor and Mulloway in the deeper holes along the eastern beaches.
