Not a lot has changed at Cressbrook this week, there’s quite a few fish showing up, but not big numbers getting caught; out from the boat ramp, around the Eagles Nest and also out off the points in the main basin have again been the better spots to look, using soft plastics, soft vibes, tailspinners and blades will work, as always, live shrimp will work in those same areas. The big fish are starting to appear at Somerset, which has included a 3.62kg thumper, caught last weekend. Tailspinners have worked well, while the Kirkleigh area has been the most productive. Bjelke Peterson also saw good quality Bass hitting the decks this past week; working the points with TN60 Jackalls picked up the most numbers and Boondooma has again seen good numbers of Bass taken on ice jigs, soft vibes and tailspinners around Pelican Point, The Junction and also into the Stuart River.

Glenlyon has produced small numbers of Yellowbelly this week, trolled hard bodies, worms and frozen saltwater yabbies are still a good option, a few Cod have been caught on spinnerbaits, even though it’s a bit quiet, persistence will pay off. Coolmunda is still producing a few Yellowbelly on frozen saltwater yabbies and hard bodies’, targeting the old creek beds is the best option. Leslie Dam saw a few nice fish landed this past week, there were a couple of legal sized Cod landed on trolled hard body lures, they measured 64cm and 70cm, while targeting the deeper water with blades, soft vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies worked the best for the Yellowbelly. Boondooma Dam has seen good sized Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies in the Stuart arm, just out from the timber, darker colours have worked the best and Bjelke Peterson has also produced good quality Yellowbelly again; working TN60 Jackalls around the points has worked well, while spinnerbaits and hard bodies have picked up a few around the timber. As for the rivers, the Goondiwindi area has seen Cod hitting bigger spinnerbaits and hard bodies and the Condamine River has been fishing reasonably well for Yellowbelly on lipless crank baits.

Offshore fishing has been good again at the Gold Coast, with plenty of Snapper and Jewies taken on the 24’s and 36’s and the 50’s have fished really well for Kingfish and Amberjack, while inshore has seen the Seaway fishing well for Jewies and Bream along the rock walls, quality Flathead and Bream on soft plastics throughout the Jumpinpin area and inside the Jumpinpin Bar has been productive for Tailor. Offshore fishing at the Sunny Coast, has seen Murphys Reef, Caloundra 12 Mile and the Barwon Banks producing Snapper, Moses Perch and Jewies, while inshore fishing at Caloundra has produced Bream and Luderick off the Boardwalk, soft plastics have worked well for Flathead in the Maroochy River and the Noosa River has produced Golden Trevally along the rock walls, on metal slugs, Jewies along the ski run on live bait and the river mouth has produced decent numbers of Tailor at dawn and dusk.

Numbers are down at Fraser this week, due to south easterly winds dominating the weather. Here’s hoping for better conditions next week.
