Pretty good fishing at Cressbrook this week, there has been the odd quality Bass hitting surface poppers early morning and late afternoon. No, this isn’t a misprint or a tall story; I witnessed it myself on Wednesday. There is a lot of smaller fish sitting around the 40ft mark and they have been falling for tailspinners, while working the steeper points, late afternoon with soft plastics has produced 40-45cm Bass. Boondooma has fished quite well this week, the area around the junction seems to be the most productive, while tailspinners, blades and live shrimp have picked up the majority of the fish. Bjelke Peterson has been pretty good again this week, with good numbers of Bass taken on soft plastics cast to the edges, plastics also accounted for a few suspended fish in the deeper water. Blades and soft plastics picked up a few Bass, around the weed banks at Moogerah Dam and Maroon has produced low numbers, mainly on live shrimp, fished around the weed.

Cooby Dam has been a bit patchy, but there has been the odd Yellowbelly hitting jigged, darker coloured blades, fished in the old creek bed out from the boat ramp. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly on bait, trolled hard bodies and jigged blades in the old creek beds. There were a few Yellowbelly landed at Leslie this past week, anglers seemed to have the most success by vertically jigging blades; trolled hard bodies also accounted for a few nice fish in the main basin, while north of the Ski Club in the main basin and the drop offs in front of the Washpool Camp Reserve have been the best areas. Boondooma Dam has again seen plenty of Yellowbelly taking soft vibes and ice jigs in the main basin and also the timbered area of the Stuart arm, good numbers of Yellowbelly at Bjelke Peterson, with blades, soft vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies working the best. As for the rivers, it’s still a bit quiet in most; however the Condamine has produced a few Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits, worms and frozen saltwater yabbies

Offshore fishing has been pretty good at the Gold Coast this week, with Cobia and smaller Snapper taken around the 18’s and 24’s, Snapper and Pearl Perch on the 36’s, and out wider, Kingfish and Amberjack have been prominent on the 50’s, while inshore, has seen quality Flathead on soft plastics and small minnows, throughout the Jumpinpin area, and there’s still plenty of Bream hanging around the rock walls and pylons, throughout all of the estuaries. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen the outer reefs fishing well for big Snapper and Pearl Perch, plenty of Squire and Tailor around Brays Rock and the inner reefs are producing smaller Snapper and the odd Tusk Fish. Inshore fishing has produced Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk and at the mouth of the Maroochy River, Winter Whiting on the sand flats, near the Powerboat Club, some decent size Flathead in Bells Creek, the Mooloolah River and also the Noosa River and the Noosa River has also produced Jacks, Golden Trevally and Jewies on live baits.
Anglers are starting to pick up a few Tailor and Dart in most of the gutters, particularly on the southern end of the island.
