Still some good quality Bass coming out of Cressbrook at the moment, look for schooled fish in the deeper water across from the boat ramp, also the right hand side of the Bull Creek arm, as you head towards the toilet block point and target them with soft plastics and tailspinners. A few schools of fish showing up at Somerset Dam, Pelican Point, Eagles Nest, Queen Street and the start of the timber at Kirkleigh are the better spots, with blades and soft plastics picking up a few fish. At Boondooma, the odd Bass has been caught casting blades to the edges, ice jigs, soft plastics and taispinners have worked well out from the steeper points and there’s still a few active fish at Maroon, they have mainly been around the edges and weed pockets, with soft plastics and small suspending minnows proving to be the most effective.

Vertically jigged blades have picked up good numbers around the Eagles Nest area at Cressbrook Dam. Not a lot happening at Glenlyon this week, with only a couple of Yellowbelly taken on live shrimp. Leslie Dam produced a few fish over the weekend and into the start of the week; anglers who fished on Saturday landed some quality Yellowbelly, in the deeper water, blades and soft vibes worked the best for the lure anglers, while live shrimp worked the best for the bait anglers. There were also a couple of legal sized Cod landed on trolled hard body lures in the main basin and the most successful spots were opposite the dam wall and near the Ski Club. Boondooma Dam saw good numbers of quality Yellowbelly taken on live shrimp and trolled hard bodies in the timbered areas of both arms of the dam. Bjelke Peterson produced low numbers on frozen saltwater yabbies around the timbered parts. As for the rivers, most of our local waterways have had flows through them, which has shut them down a bit, however, the Macintyre at Goondi produced a couple of Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and the upper reaches of the Condamine River have produced a few Cod and Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, hard bodies and frozen saltwater yabbies.

Offshore fishing has been pretty good again, with Snapper, Cobia and Trag Jew taken on the 18’s and 24’s, and for anyone who has ventured out further, there has been a few Kingies, Amberjack and Pearl Perch on the 50’s, while inshore, has seen the Seaway fishing well for Jewies at night, Tailor, Trevally and Kingfish early morning, on the run in tide, quality Flathead at Kalinga Bank, Jewies and Tailor inside the Jumpinpin Bar and Squid and Gar are plentiful around the weed banks throughout the Broadwater, while at the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen the northern grounds producing some quality Sweetlip, Caloundra 12 mile has produced some good Snapper and the Barwon Banks and Caloundra Wide have been the places to go for a few Pearl Perch and Cobia. Inshore fishing has seen Gar starting to show up in the Mooloolah River, the entrance to Lake Weyba has been producing a few Flathead, the Woods Bay area has been good for a few Trevally and Tailor, the Passage and Pelican Waters have produced Bream and Flathead and on the beaches, Tailor have started to show up in reasonable size and numbers, Bream have also been worth chasing with some good quality fish being caught.

Dart and Whiting in the gutters at low tide and a few Chopper Tailor and Mulloway starting to show up in the deeper holes along the eastern beaches.
