Good fishing at Cressbrook again this week, Tailspinners and soft plastics have been a good option, with the Bull Creek arm still holding the majority of the fish; early morning and late afternoon has produced the better numbers; a lot of the fish are around the 30-35cm mark, but there’s still been a few up around the 50cm mark landed. Plenty of schools showing up in the deeper water at Boondooma Dam this week; tailspinners, soft plastics and ice jigs have been effective, while live shrimp have worked well for the bait anglers. Targeting the points with trolled hard bodies and live shrimp have been the best options at Bjelke Peterson this week. There’s still some good quality Bass at Somerset, if you’re prepared to put in the time, spoons and plastics have picked up the majority of the fish, trolling hard bodies has also worked well, while Queen Street and Kirkleigh have been the better spots to target and Moogerah has produced good numbers of quality fish again, with soft plastics and tailspinners proving successful around the weed edges, in the timbered area.

Fishing the deeper water has provided the best results at Cooby Dam again this week, with frozen saltwater yabbies picking up the majority of the fish. Boondooma has produced a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies, fished around the weed edges and the timber, while at Bjelke Peterson; the timbered area and the steeper banks have produced low numbers on bait and spinnerbaits. Leslie Dam saw reasonable numbers landed again this week; land based anglers had the most success in front of the Washpool Camping Reserve and near the Ski Club, with live shrimp, worms and frozen saltwater yabbies all catching fish. Trolling hard bodies out from the Washpool Reserve also picked up a few Yellowbelly and a few, smaller, legal sized Cod were taken on spinnerbaits. Glenlyon has produced reasonable numbers of Yellowbelly toward the top end of the dam, mainly on live shrimp and worms, while trolled spinnerbaits have picked up some nice Cod between 80 and 90cm. As for the rivers, the Macintyre and Dumeresq have gone a bit quiet; and here locally, the upper reaches of the Condamine has produced a few Yellowbelly and Cod on spinnerbaits.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has produced Pearl Perch and Snapper on the northern 50’s, while the 18’s and 24’s have seen a few Trag Jew and Trevelly getting about. The Seaway is producing a few Jewies at night, along the rock walls, Flathead around Crab Island, Squid and Gar on the weed banks around Wavebreak Island and the entrance to the Jumpinpin bar has again produced a few Trevally and Tailor. At the Sunshine Coast, plenty of Sweetlip, Snapper and Cobia on 12 Mile Reef, while the wider reefs have been productive for Pearl Perch, Mackerel and Tuna. Inshore fishing has produced a few Jewies near Military Jetty, plenty of Bream off the boardwalk; good quality Whiting and Flathead throughout the Maroochy River, while at Noosa; Tailor throughout the river on whole pilchards and live baits; Trevally of all different varieties in Woods Bay, good numbers of small Jewies taking soft plastics, live baits have been accounting for some quality flathead and the beaches are starting to produce some good quality Tailor.
