Cressbrook Dam has again seen some quality fish getting about; the upper reaches of the Cressbrook Creek arm and the points in the main basin have been the hot spots, while spinnerbaits, Tailspinners, soft plastics and live shrimp have worked the best for these fish. Somerset Dam has produced some big Bass this week, there’s plenty of fish around, with The Spit, Bay13 and the Pelican Point areas being the best spots to target, blades, Tailspinners and soft plastics are giving the best results. Boondooma has again seen some decent Bass getting about throughout the dam, soft plastics, tailspinners, ice jigs and trolled hard bodies are working well, while the main basin, the junction and Pelican Point have again been good spots to target, Wivenhoe saw plenty of quality fish taking tailspinners on the flats, just out from Logans Inlet and both Maroon and Moogerah are fishing quite well at the moment, with good number of Bass landed at Maroon, casting soft plastics at the edges and weed pockets has given the best results, while at Moogerah, fishing in the timber towards the southern end of the dam has been the best, with gold blades and tailspinners working well.

Cooby Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly landed this week, out from the boat ramp in 30ft of water, the point opposite the boat ramp and the right hand bank out from the dam wall buoy line have all been popular spots, while frozen saltwater yabbies, ice jigs and jigged blades have been the most effective. Not much has changed at Glenlyon this week, with good numbers of Cod up to 80cm hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while frozen saltwater yabbies, trolled hard bodies and spinnerbaits are working the best for the Yellowbelly, which are holding just out from the edges, in 15-20ft of water. Pretty good numbers of fish again at Coolmunda, frozen salt water yabbies accounted for a few Yellowbelly along the rock wall and around the timber, while hopping mask vibes and silent TN60 Jackalls through the old creek beds accounted for better numbers including quite a few Cod between 60 and 85cm. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies in the main basin, in about 20 foot of water, there were also a few landed in the deeper water out from the boat ramp on blades and tail spinners and live shrimp proved to be the most successful bait. Boondooma continues to produce good numbers of fish through the main basin, working trolled hard bodies in about 30ft of water has been successful and working tailspinners and soft vibes around the points has been good as well, while Bjelke Peterson saw reasonable numbers taking live shrimp, frozen saltwater yabbies and lipless crankbaits in 15-20ft of water. As for the rivers, the Macintyre River has produced low numbers of fish on frozen saltwater yabbies and the local rivers and creeks have fished well for Yellowbelly, with Spinnerbaits, hard bodies and bait all working well.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has seen a few Cobia on the Artificial Reef, north of the Seaway, and a few Snapper and Pearl Perch on the northern 50’s. Inshore fishing has been good for Flathead and Mulloway on plastics and live bait, in the Seaway, off Crab Island and around the Pin, the odd Kingy at the pipeline on the run out tide; good numbers of Whiting in the Nerang River and a few Sand Crabs around the Southern end of the Broadwater. At the Sunny Coast, the inner reefs have produced Snapper, Sweetlip and Pearl Perch, the Barwon Banks and North Reef have produced Cobia, Yellowtail Kingfish, Snapper, Dolphin Fish and Wahoo while inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting around the Power Boat Club on Yabbies, Bream, Whiting and Flathead of the Boardwalk, Flathead and Jacks in the Mooloolah River, Whiting and Dart off most beaches and in the Noosa River, plenty of good size Whiting and Flathead throughout the system.

Fishing on Fraser has again been good over the last week, north of Happy Valley has been popular, with the average size of the Tailor getting up around the 55cm mark.
