Not a lot has changed at Cressbrook this week, there’s quite a few fish showing up, but not big numbers getting caught; out from the boat ramp, around the Eagles Nest and also out off the points in the main basin have again been the better spots to look, using soft plastics, soft vibes, tailspinners and blades will work, as always, live shrimp will work in those same areas. Still good shows of fish at Somerset, which have again produced some good quality Bass on Blades, Soft Plastics, tailspinners and live shrimp, while Pelican Point, Bay 13 and Queen Street have again been the pick of the spots. Boondooma has fished well again this week, with good numbers of quality Bass taking blades and tailspinners, cast to the edges, particularly in the timbered area of the Stuart arm, there’s also been some bigger fish taken on blades in the main basin, Moogerah is still producing a few Bass on a variety of lures, including soft plastics, soft vibes, tailspinners and blades, looking in 25-35ft of water, on the flats out from the timber should provide the best results.

Cooby Dam is still producing the odd Yellowbelly on trolled shallow diving hard bodies, working them near the weed beds, in the northern arm has worked the best. Glenlyon has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on trolled hard bodies, worms and frozen saltwater yabbies are still a good option and spinnerbaits have picked up a couple of Cod. Coolmunda has produced good numbers of Yellowbelly on bait and trolled hard bodies on the drop offs and along the rock wall, there’s also been a few Cod taken on hard bodies around the timber. Leslie Dam saw reasonable numbers of Yellowbelly hitting smaller trolled hard bodies, working the narrower part of the dam, near the Black Boys, and for the bait anglers, using frozen saltwater yabbies, in the deeper parts of the main basin has produced and worms have accounted for a few nice Silver Perch, off the bank near the Washpool Reserve. Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson Dam have seen good numbers of Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies throughout the main basins in both dams and casting blades and spinnerbaits to the edges has been effective as well, and Somerset has produced good quality Yellowbelly again, casting reaction lures to the edges and working blades and soft vibes through schooled fish has been effective. As for the rivers, the Macintyre river at Goondi, has seen a few Cod hitting surface lures, while quality Yellowbelly are biting on frozen saltwater yabbies and smaller trolled hard bodies and the upper reaches of the Condamine River, from Cecil Plains to Warwick has again produced a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

Offshore fishing has been good again at the Gold Coast, with plenty of Snapper and Jewies taken on the 24’s and 36’s and the 50’s have fished really well for Kingfish and Amberjack, while inshore has seen the Seaway fishing well for Jewies and Bream along the rock walls, quality Flathead and Bream on soft plastics throughout the Jumpinpin area and inside the Jumpinpin Bar has been productive for Tailor. Offshore fishing at the Sunny Coast, has seen Murphys Reef, Caloundra 12 Mile and the Barwon Banks producing Snapper, Moses Perch and Jewies, while inshore fishing at Caloundra has produced Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk, soft plastics have worked well for Flathead in the Maroochy River and the Noosa River has produced Golden Trevally along the rock walls, on metal slugs, Jewies along the ski run on live bait and the river mouth has produced decent numbers of Tailor at dawn and dusk.

Good reports from Fraser again this week, with most gutters along the eastern beaches producing good numbers of Tailor, Dart and Whiting.
