Not a lot to report from Cressbrook Dam this week, there has been a few smaller Bass landed, mainly on soft plastics and tailspinners. The main basin has been the best spot to target. Somerset has produced some nice fish up to 50cm; soft plastics and mask vibes hopped through schooled fish, on the flats at Queen Street and Kirkleigh has worked well. It’s also been pretty good for the bait anglers with some quality Bass taking live bait around the timber. Boondooma Dam has seen ice jigs picking up Bass in the deeper water, while blades, tailspinners and mask vibes have worked well around the timber in the Boyne arm. Bjelke Peterson produced some decent Bass on soft plastics, cast to the edges and worked back to the boat and Moogerah Dam has also been a bit quieter this week with only low numbers taking plastics worked near the weed banks.

Pretty quiet on the Yellowbelly scene this week; Coolmunda Dam only produced a few fish on frozen saltwater yabbies. Leslie Dam has seen the bait anglers landing some Yellowbelly on live shrimp and crays, mask vibes picked up a couple near the Washpool Camping Reserve and darker coloured blades picked up a few in the deeper water. Bjelke Peterson has seen a few Yellowbelly taking bait fished around the timber; 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, not much to report from the Macintyre and Dumeresq Rivers, however the upper reaches of the Condamine River produced some quality Yellowbelly and Cod on spinnerbaits and surface lures

Nothing to report from the Gold Coast this week. Offshore at the Sunny Coast has seen a few nice reef fish caught in-close on Little and Big Halls reefs, during the bigger swell; there’s also the odd spanish mackerel hanging around Jew Shoal, with slow trolled live baits being the best way to pick up a pelagic.

Inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen Bream around the bar entrance and Military Jetty, Flathead on soft plastics at the mouth of Bells Creek and the Maroochy River, at Noosa; look around the river mouth for Trevally and Tailor, good sized Bream throughout the system and Sunshine and Castaways beaches have seen the odd big jew and tailor caught after dark.
