At Cressbrook Dam, anglers have had some success on schooled fish out from Deer Island, the main point in the Bull Creek arm and near the Eagles Nest, soft plastics, blades and live shrimp have been the best options on these fish. Somerset Dam has been a bit hit and miss this week; there’s plenty of fish showing on the sounder, but it has been a bit harder getting them to bite, the fish are still holding in Bay 13 and around Pelican Point, targeting these with soft plastics, blades and tailspinners should bring the best results. Boondooma is firing at the moment, with heaps of Bass taking bait in the timbered area of both arms and working spinnerbaits, plastics and blades just outside the weed beds in the Stuart arm has been good also. At Bjelke Peterson, spinnerbaits, tailspinners and TN60 Jackalls have all been working well at Treasure Island, Lightning Ridge and Bass Point, trolling green coloured hard bodies through the old creek beds has also been effective and Maroon Dam has seen surface lures working well, early morning and late afternoon, while soft plastics worked around the weed banks has been productive as well.

Cooby is still fishing well for Yellowbelly, working the rock walls, just out from the dam wall buoy line with TN60 Jackalls and spinnerbaits has been good and it’s also worth casting the same lures to the edges in the northern arm of the dam. Glenlyon has been good again this week, with plenty of Cod getting about, some decent sized fish have been hitting bigger Spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies in the timbered areas, Yellowbelly have also been quite active in 8–12ft of water; blades, live shrimp and worms have worked well for these. At Coolmunda, trolling darker coloured hard bodies along the drop-offs has worked well, while casting Jackalls and Spinnerbaits around the timber has been good also and as far as bait goes, frozen saltwater yabbies have been the best option. Leslie Dam has seen some nice fish landed over the past week, there were plenty of Yellowbelly landed on live shrimp, frozen saltwater yabbies and TN50 Jackalls in the main basin, there was also a few smaller Cod landed, while Silver Perch and Eel tail Catfish were caught of the banks, using live worms and in the South Burnett, both Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson dams have again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, targeting the same areas and using the same methods as with the Bass has given the best results. As for the rivers, the Dumeresq at Texas, the Macintyre at Goondi and the Condamine River here locally have all had freshes through them, so using bait has been the best option for picking up a few Yellowbelly.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast this week, has seen some decent Cobia on the 18’s & 24’s, good numbers of Kingies hitting jigs on the 50’s and if you venture out wider to the 110m line, there has been plenty of Mahi Mahi getting about. Inshore fishing has seen smaller Kingies and Trevally hitting lures, in the Seaway, early morning on the run in tide, a few Flathead are still getting about Kalinga Bank, Whiting at the mouth of the Coomera River and near the Council Chambers in the Nerang River and the southern Broadwater has produced a few Sand Crabs. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen Snapper, Pearl Perch and Trag Jew on North Reef and Coral Trout have been prominent at Sunshine Reef. Inshore fishing has seen the passage at Caloundra and also the Mooloolah River fishing well on the banks for Whiting, Flathead and a few solid Bream. The Mooloolah River is also producing some decent Trevally around the bridges, early morning on soft plastics. The Maroochy River has been fishing well for Flathead around the mouth, Bream and Trevally on plastics around the bridges, a few early season Jacks are taking live bait around the creek mouths at night and Lake Weyba has seen a few Whiting and Bream taking surface poppers along the edges.
