Cressbrook Dam has been fishing well for Bass, there is a lot of smaller fish around, with a few in the 30-40cm mark. These fish are hitting spinnerbaits and tailspinners in either blue or green colours, the best area has been in the Cressbrook Creek arm of the dam. Somerset Dam has kicked into gear again this week; with some good solid fish taking soft plastics, blades and tailspinners, the fish are holding in Bay 13, Queen Street and around Pelican Point. Boondooma Dam has got a good reaction bite going at the moment, with quality fish taking TN60 Jackalls and spinnerbaits worked just outside the weed edges. Bjelke Peterson has also produced good numbers of Bass this week, working the edges with spinnerbaits has been good while Bass point has seen a few taken on Blades and trolled hard bodies and down at Moogerah Dam, anglers have managed to land a few nice Bass over the past week, most fish were taken in and around the timber while casting blades, another good spot has been in the bay opposite the dam wall, while some fish were also landed trolling hard bodies along the southern banks.

There’s only a few sleeps left until the Cod season opens in our creeks and rivers!!! At midnight, this Monday night, Queensland’s first Murray Cod closed season finishes. I know it’s been hard, but I’m sure it’s well worth protecting these magnificent fish during their spawning season. A few of the rivers have had a fresh through them in the last couple of weeks, so as the water clears up, the fishing should start to fire up as well!!! Cooby Dam has produced a few Yellowbelly around the weed edges, trolled hard bodies, TN60 Jackalls and spinnerbaits have worked well on those fish while frozen saltwater yabbies and live crays have been effective for the bait anglers. Plenty of Cod at Glenlyon this week, casting spinnerbaits and trolling hard bodies have worked well, there’s also been some nice Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies, jigged blades, these fish have mainly been holding around the 20-25ft of water. Coolmunda has again produced good numbers of Cod and Yellowbelly on darker coloured lures, working the old creek beds and along the wall have still been the best spots to target. Leslie Dam is continuing to fish quite well on both lures and bait, using a sounder to locate the fish in the main basin and targeting them with bait has been effective, but working soft vibes through the fish has given the best results and in the South Burnett, both Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson dams have again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, in Boondooma, bait and trolled hard bodies have been effective in the main basin, while casting spinnerbaits around the timber and to the edges throughout the dam has produced some quality fish, while at Bjelke Peterson, trolling darker coloured hard bodies and working reaction lures, like spinnerbaits and Jackalls on the drop-offs into the creek beds and also around the steeper points has worked well.

Offshore fishing has been fairly good this week, the 24’s have produced Snapper and Mackerel, and there’s been quite a few Black Marlin and Mahi Mahi out wider on the 50’s. Inshore fishing has seen smaller Kingies and Trevally out the front of Wavebreak Island, Jumpinpin has been good for Flathead and Tailor on the incoming tide, Whiting throughout most of the estuaries and the Runaway Bay canals have seen good numbers of Mangrove Jack taken on live bait and soft plastics.

Offshore fishing has seen some decent schools of Spanish Mackerel and Mahi Mahi getting about Brays Rock, and the Barwon Banks, while there have been good reports of Kingies on Curramundi Reef. Inshore fishing has seen the passage at Caloundra producing some nice Flathead and a few smaller Bream; Trevally and Jacks around the bridges in the Pelican Waters canals. The Maroochy River has been fishing well for Flathead and Jacks in the upper reaches, Trevally and Chopper Tailor at the mouth of the Noosa River on the run in tide and the beaches have produced good numbers of quality Whiting.
