A bit of an improvement on the Bass scene this week, Cressbrook Dam has produced some fish out from the boat ramp, there’s also some schools showing up from there through to the Eagles Nest, live shrimp, soft plastics, soft vibes and tailspinners have worked the best. A few more fish at Somerset as well, with Queen Street and Kirkleigh being the best places to target, soft plastics, tailspinners and soft vibes have all worked well, while live shrimp and trolling crank baits have been better options. Boondooma has again seen good numbers of Bass taken on ice jigs, soft vibes and tailspinners around Pelican Point and The Junction, trolled hard bodies have also picked up a few through the narrows. Trolling deep diving lures in the old creek beds has been effective at Bjelke Peterson and Moogerah Dam has again produced a few Bass on mask vibes and tailspinners, looking in 30 – 35ft of water, just out from the timber has been a good option.

Cooby Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies and blades in about 30ft of water, trolling smaller lures tight to the weed edges has picked up a few as well. Glenlyon has seen a few Cod between 60 and 70cm, taken on trolled and cast hard bodies, looking around structure will give the best results. At Leslie Dam, anglers managed to land some nice Yellowbelly on both lures and bait, the Black Boys produced good numbers of fish on bait, while the lure anglers also managed to land a few up past the Black Boys while casting Jackalls at the structure. Coolmunda has seen blades and soft vibes working well for Yellowbelly and there’s plenty of Cod hitting trolled hard bodies throughout the dam. Boondooma Dam has again produced good sized Yellowbelly on trolled hard bodies through the narrows and Bjelke Peterson has also produced good quality Yellowbelly again, working TN60 Jackalls around Bass Point has worked well, while spinnerbaits and hard bodies have picked up a few around the timber. As for the rivers, the Goondiwindi area has been steady, with only low numbers of Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies, the Balonne River at St.George has seen some decent size Yellowbelly hitting green and yellow hard bodies and the Condamine River around the Warwick area fished reasonably well for Yellowbelly on crank baits and surface lures produced a couple of Cod.

Offshore fishing has seen a few Snapper, Cobia and Trag Jew taken on the 18’s and 24’s and out wider, Kingfish, Amberjack and Snapper have been caught on the 50’s, while inshore has seen the sand pumping jetty fishing well for Trevally and Tailor on the incoming tide, smaller Kingies and school Jew in the Seaway on the morning tide change, Bream around the bridges in the canals, Flathead at the Aldershots and Kalinga Bank and a few Sand Crabs are showing up around Crab Island. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen most reefs holding mixed reef fish and Snapper up to 8kg; Jigs, soft plastics and baits, like pilchards and live yakka’s fished on the bottom have worked well. There’s also been a few Yellowfin and Long Tail Tuna getting about. While inshore fishing has seen plenty of Flathead throughout the Passage and the Maroochy River, Bream and Whiting at Military Jetty, Trevally are hitting surface lures around structure in most of the canals and the Noosa River has produced a few Jacks on live bait, under the bridges at night and the river mouth has been firing for Flathead and Trevally, on the incoming tide.

Still getting good reports of Tailor and Dart along the eastern beaches, with the northern part of the island producing slightly better quality fish.
