At Cressbrook Dam, the lure anglers have had limited success on schooled fish out from Deer Island, the main point in the Bull Creek arm and near the Eagles Nest, bait anglers have had better luck, with live shrimp working the best on those same fish, but there has been some good quality Bass taking spinnerbaits worked around the edges. Somerset Dam is still a bit hit and miss at the moment; there’s plenty of fish about, but it has been hard getting them to bite, the fish are holding in Bay 13, Kirkleigh and around Pelican Point, targeting these with soft plastics, blades and tailspinners will bring the best results. Boondooma is still firing, with heaps of Bass taking bait in the timbered area of both arms, working spinnerbaits just outside the weed beds and casting blades to the edges in the Stuart arm has been successful as well. Bjelke Peterson has seen trolled hard bodies, blades and spinnerbaits all working well around Lightning Ridge and Bass Point, Moogerah is a bit quiet with only the odd Bass taking spinnerbaits around the timber and much the same at Maroon Dam this week, with surface lures working well, early morning and late afternoon, while soft plastics worked around the weed banks has been productive again.

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 around the weed edges, on the steeper banks throughout the dam. Glenlyon has been good again this week, with plenty of Cod getting about, some decent sized fish have again been hitting bigger Spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies in the timbered areas, Yellowbelly have also been quite active; blades, live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies have worked well on these fish. At Coolmunda, trolling hard bodies along the drop-offs has worked well, while casting Jackalls and Spinnerbaits around the timber has been good also and for the bait anglers, frozen saltwater yabbies and worms have also been effective around the timber. Leslie Dam has remained fairly consistent this week, there were plenty of Yellowbelly landed on frozen saltwater yabbies, mask vibes and blades in the main basin, there was also a few decent Cod landed, with the biggest coming in at 91cm, while the land based anglers landed some quality Yellowbelly and Silver Perch on 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 Macintyre at Goondi is still a bit unsettled, however frozen saltwater yabbies have pick up a few Yellowbelly and the Condamine River has seen a good fresh, which has slowed things down for the lure anglers, bait is producing the best results, with some nice fish being landed in various spots. Lures are picking up the odd fish and there have been quite a few Cod caught and released, don’t forget it is closed season for Murray Cod in our creeks and rivers, but there’s only a couple of weeks before this finishes.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast this week, has seen good numbers of Mahi Mahi and Mulloway on the 24’s & 36’s and if you venture out wider to the 150 fathoms, there has been plenty of Blue Marlin getting about. Inshore fishing has seen Tarpon and Trevally in the Seaway, 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 again produced a few Sand Crabs. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen Mahi Mahi and Cobia on Sunshine Reef and the Barwon Banks, Jew, Squire and Pearlies on Chardons Reef and Squire, Pearlies and Parrot on Sunshine Reef. Inshore fishing has seen the passage at Caloundra fishing well for Whiting, Flathead and a few solid Bream, the Maroochy River has been fishing well for Flathead around the mouth and Whiting in the upper reaches and the Noosa River has seenWhiting in good numbers around the frying pan and Munna Point and the dog beach, Trevally schools are present throughout Woods Bay early morning and late evening, Mangrove Jack have been taken from around structure in the deeper sections of the river and Tailor have been present at the river mouth near the top of the tide.
