Cressbrook Dam has produced a few Bass again this week, it’s worth a look out from the boat ramp in the main basin, and from the buoy line through to the main point in the Bull Creek arm, metal spoons and blades will give you the best chance of landing a fish, while live shrimp have worked well for the bait anglers. Somerset is still pretty ordinary at the moment, the best option would be looking in and around the timber at Kirkleigh, and using live shrimp should give the best results. Boondooma Dam has seen the Bass taking suspending minnows on the weed edges; tailspinners and spinnerbaits are working on the points and ice jigs have picked up a few in the deeper water. At Bjelke Peterson; blades, trolled hard bodies and live shrimp have all worked well at Bass Point and Maroon Dam saw some quality Bass picked up in amongst the weed beds, with suspending minnows working well.

Only low numbers of fish caught in Cooby this week, using bait or working diving hard bodies and blades fairly tight to the weed edges has worked the best. Glenlyon has been fairly quiet this week, with only the odd Yellowbelly taking frozen saltwater yabbies, while the odd Cod has been taken on spinnerbaits. Coolmunda Dam has seen a few Yellowbelly caught again this week, frozen saltwater yabbies and live worms have produced the most fish, while trolled hard bodies have picked up a few Cod, including a 90cm model, which was caught on Thursday morning. Fishing has been a bit better at Leslie over the past week; most of the Yellowbelly were landed in the main basin with live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best for the bait anglers, while the lure anglers had success on blades and soft vibes, worked tight to the bottom. The soft vibes also accounted for a couple of legal sized Cod, with several smaller Cod landed as well. Boondooma fished a bit harder for Yellowbelly, with the Boyne arm only producing small numbers on live bait, while at Bjelke Peterson, live bait picked up the majority of fish, however, running deep diving hard bodies so they were bumping the bottom or jigging blades picked up the odd one as well. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi saw a few Yellowbelly taken on bait and the Dumeresq at Texas has seen Cod hitting surface lures and bigger spinnerbaits downstream of the township.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has seen a bit of action, with the 36’s and 50’s producing a few Snapper and Amberjack. Inshore fishing has seen the Southport Seaway producing plenty of Bream, Whiting out from the Council Chambers in the Nerang River; plenty of Flathead on bait and soft plastics around the pin and plenty of Tailor on the incoming tide, at the Jumpinpin bar entrance. As for the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has been pretty good this week; Currumundi, 12 Mile and North Reefs have all produced Snapper, Cobia, Red Throat Sweetlip and the odd Kingy, while inshore fishing has seen the Maroochy River producing Bream and Flathead on soft plastics throughout, Caloundra is fishing well for Bream off the Boardwalk, Flathead throughout Bells Creek and at the bar entrance, while at Noosa, Jewies at night along the rock walls, Flathead and Bream throughout the system and Golden Trevally and Tailor at the river mouth.
