Cressbrook has seen a few Bass taken on ice jigs and soft plastics around Deer Island and throughout the Bull Creek arm, there’s also been the odd bigger fish taking tailspinners off the steeper points in the Eagles Nest area. At Boondooma, the odd bass has been caught on ice jigs and blades throughout the main basin, the weed edges have produced fish early mornings on blades, while live shrimp have worked well at the start of the timber in the Boyne arm. Bjelke Peterson picked up a bit this week, with reasonable numbers of Bass taken on ice jigs and blades at the bottom end of the dam and working spinnerbaits and blades to the edges, from Bass Point right through to the wall has also produced a few and Moogerah Dam saw a few fish taking soft plastics worked around the weed.

A few Cod taken on spinnerbaits at Glenlyon this week, but no big fish to report and the odd Yellowbelly has been taken on worms and frozen saltwater yabbies. Coolmunda has produced a few Yellowbelly on live shrimp and jigged blades in the old creek beds. Leslie Dam’s improved as the weeks gone on, with fairly good numbers of Yellowbelly being caught, live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies worked the best for the bait anglers, while the lure anglers experienced the best results using blades and mask vibes; out from the Ski Club, the Washpool and opposite the dam wall were the pick of the spots. There was also a couple of legal size Cod landed on spinnerbaits. Boondooma Dam has seen good numbers of Yellowbelly taking soft vibes and ice jigs in the main basin and also the timbered area of the Stuart arm, good numbers at Bjelke Peterson as well, with blades, soft vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best. As for the rivers, it’s still fairly quiet through most, but this should improve as they start to clear.

At the Gold Coast, offshore fishing has improved as the week progressed, with Snapper and Trag Jew taken on the 36’s, and out wider, Pearl Perch have been prominent on the 50’s, while inshore, has seen the Seaway fishing well for Bream and Flathead, early morning on the run in tide has been the best time and plenty of good quality Flathead and big Bream throughout the Jumpinpin and Bay Islands areas. While at the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen the outer reefs fishing well for Amberjack and Sweetlip and Snapper have been prominent in a bit closer. Inshore fishing has produced Bream off the Boardwalk and Flathead just inside the bar entrance at Caloundra, Bream, Trevally and School Jew in the upper reaches of the Maroochy River, the Noosa River has produced big Tailor and Trevally on metal lures, on the incoming tide and quality Flathead are taking soft plastics on the sand flats.

Much the same this week, with Dart and Whiting in the gutters at low tide and Chopper Tailor and Jewies in the deeper holes along the eastern beaches.
