The Lake Coolmunda Fishing Classic is on this weekend, it caters for anglers of all ages and levels of experience, so if you’re looking for something to do over the long weekend, it would be worth checking out. For more information go to or have a look on our Tackle World Toowoomba Facebook page.

Cressbrook Dam has again seen some quality fish getting about; they’re not going off at the moment, but if you put in the time, you should pick up a few, the upper reaches of the Cressbrook Creek arm and the main point in the Bull Creek arm have been good spots to target, while Tailspinners, soft plastics and live shrimp have worked the best. Somerset Dam has picked up a bit this week, The Spit, Kirkleigh and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, with slow rolled soft plastics, Tailspinners and Ice Jigs proving to be effective and live shrimp have been productive for the bait anglers. Boondooma has again seen some decent Bass getting about throughout the dam, mask vibes, tailspinners, ice jigs and trolled hard bodies are all working well, the main basin, the junction and Pelican Point have been good spots to target, while spinnerbaits have worked well around the timber in the Stuart arm and Bjelke Peterson has continued to fire this week, targeting the gently sloping banks throughout the dam, with soft plastics, TN60 Jackalls and compact spinnerbaits has produced plenty of fish up to the 50cm mark.

Cooby Dam has produced some good quality Yellowbelly again this week, the fish are still hanging just out from the weed edges, trolling shallow diving hard bodies or casting spinnerbaits and TN60 Jackalls in tight to the weed has been effective, while frozen saltwater yabbies and jigged blades have been effective in the deeper parts of the dam. Glenlyon continues to improve as the weather warms up, with good numbers of Cod up to 80cm hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while live shrimp, frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and spinnerbaits are all working well for Yellowbelly. Coolmunda has again produced good numbers this week, particularly around the timber and out from the dam wall, with Jackalls, Spinnerbaits, blades and soft vibes all working well for both Cod and Yellowbelly. Leslie Dam has been fairly consistent over the school holidays, there’s been plenty of Yellowbelly over the 45cm mark, hitting Blades and trolled hard bodies in 20 to 30ft of water. There’s also been a few Cod landed, around the 65cm mark, spinnerbaits and hard bodies accounted for most of these fish. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River has produced good numbers of Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and bait, there’s also been quite a few Silver Perch getting about. Yellowbelly have been active in the Dumeresq River again, mainly downstream of Texas, live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies are working the best and the Condamine River is continuing to fish well for Yellowbelly, with most of the weirs and popular holes, throughout the system producing good numbers.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has seen Pearl Perch, Snapper and Kingies on the northern 50’s, while the 18’s and 24’s have produced Jewies and Snapper. Inshore fishing has seen Kingies, GT’s and Tailor in the Seaway, inside the Pin Bar has produced big Flathead on soft vibes and live baits, a few Jacks are starting to show up around the rock walls and the beaches have produced good numbers of Whiting and Dart. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has been a bit quiet, with only a few Snapper taken on North and Sunshine Reefs, while inshore fishing has seen plenty of Flathead taking live baits and soft plastics throughout most of the estuaries; good numbers of School Jew in the Maroochy River, metal slugs and surface poppers are picking up Queenfish and Trevally in the Noosa River and a few Jacks are starting to show up around the bridge pylons and rock walls.

Fraser has continued to produce good numbers of Tailor, Dart and Whiting along the eastern beaches, with the northern parts being the most productive.
