Once again, the Bass fishing has been good this week, with Cressbrook Dam producing a few fish off the camp ground point, out from the boat ramp and off the steeper points in the Cressbrook Creek arm, while soft plastics, tailspinners and live shrimp have all been effective again. Pretty good at Boondooma again this week; with some quality fish up to 50cm getting about; tailspinners, ice jigs and spinnerbaits have worked well around the Junction and Pelican Point. Good quality fish at Bjelke Peterson as well this week, with the edges producing reasonable numbers throughout the dam and Moogerah has been fishing well, particularly on bait, where some quality Bass have been landed in the timbered area on live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies; Blades, tailspinners and soft plastics also accounted for some nice fish, with most of these coming from the flats in the main basin.

No real change at Cooby this week; it has produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly just out from the weed edges on trolled shallow diving hard bodies, while using bait or jigging blades in the deeper parts has produced a few fish as well. Still plenty of activity in Glenlyon, with good numbers of Yellowbelly taking small, shallow diving hard bodies, worked around the newly covered banks. Coolmunda has seen the timbered area producing Yellowbelly on blades, while spinnerbaits have accounted for some quality Cod. At Leslie, bait has worked well at the top end of the dam, while blades and trolled hard bodies picked up some nice fish in the main basin. As for the rivers, the best reports have again come from the upper reaches of the Condamine, with some decent catches of Yellowbelly from Clifton through to Warwick, pretty quiet around Goondi this week and the Dumeresq, from Texas to Yellarbon has produced a few Yellowbelly on bait.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast this past week has seen Snapper and Amberjack on the 18’s and 24’s, a few Kingies on the 36’s and out wider, trolling skirted lures has worked well for Yellowfin Tuna. Inshore fishing has seen Bream and Jewies in the Seaway and good quality Flathead have been prominent around Crab Island, Tipplers Passage and just inside the Pin Bar. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has seen Snapper on 8 Mile Reef, and there’s also been the odd Mackerel getting about, while inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting in the lower parts of the Maroochy River, Bream and Trevally at the mouth of Bells Creek, Flathead throughout the passage on live baits; and in the Noosa River, the upper reaches are producing good numbers of smaller Mangrove Jack, while Trevally and Flathead, have been taking live bait in Woods Bay, on the incoming tide.

Fraser is still producing some decent Tailor, but numbers are still very dependent on the wind and the amount of weed getting about.
