Cressbrook Dam has been a bit quieter this week, but there’s been some quality Bass landed, mainly on soft plastics and tailspinners. The Bull Creek arm has still been the best spot to target. Somerset has been quiet for the lure anglers, but there’s been a few Bass taking live bait in the timbered area at Kirkleigh. Boondooma Dam has produced some quality Bass on ice jigs, blades and spinnerbaits, in the deeper water, around the junction and Pelican Point. Bjelke Peterson has produced a few Bass on blades, in the deeper parts of the dam, Bass Point has also seen a few taken on trolled hard bodies and live shrimp. At Moogerah Dam, the Bass are hanging out from the timber, near the day use boat ramp, rigging soft plastics on a 1/2oz jighead and working them steady and close to the bottom will give the best results; tailspinners and ice jigs have also picked up a few.


Not much to report from Cooby Dam this week, however Glenlyon continues to fish quite well, good numbers of Yellowbelly have been taken on frozen saltwater yabbies, 25-30ft of water seems to be the depth to look in, while bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies have produced some nice Cod around the timbered parts. Coolmunda Dam has fished alright again this week, looking in the deeper parts of the dam has produced the most fish, live worms and frozen saltwater yabbies have worked the best. Yellowbelly have remained active at Leslie Dam this week, with some quality fish being landed in the deeper water; cray tails and frozen saltwater yabbies accounted for the majority of these, while blades and mask vibes picked up a few as well. Bjelke Peterson has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on trolled lures around Bass Point; the timbered areas of both arms of Boondooma have again been productive for Yellowbelly, with live bait working the best on these fish. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has seen a few Yellowbelly taken on frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms, a few smaller Cod have been hitting surface lures in the Dumeresq River at Texas and the upper reaches of the Condamine River has produced some quality Yellowbelly and Cod on spinnerbaits and crays.


Conditions aren’t looking good for Coastal fishing this weekend, however offshore fishing has been productive at the Gold Coast during this week, with good numbers of Kingies, Amberjack and Snapper on the Northern 50’s and the 36’s have produced Trag Jew and Snapper. While inshore fishing has seen schools of Chopper Tailor in the Southport Seaway, Whiting and Flathead around Wavebreak Island, Jewies off the pipeline and Bream and Flathead have been prominent throughout the Jumpinpin area, while at the Sunny Coast, Snapper and Cobia have been prominent on Sunshine and Murphy’s Reefs and most of the reefs are holding a lot of Mack and Long Tail Tuna. Inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen Bream along the boardwalk, Flathead on soft plastics, along the sandbanks in the passage, Whiting and Flathead throughout most of the estuaries, poppers and metal slugs are picking up Trevally and Tailor at the mouth of the Noosa River and the beaches have been producing a few Tailor as well.
