Cooby Dam
Cooby has produced some nice Yellowbelly again this week, with the fish still sitting around the weed edges. Trolling has been the most effective way of catching these fish, while casting ZX blades over the weed and starting the retrieve strait away has picked up a few as well. There has also been a few schooled fish near the buoy line; casting ZX blades and tailspinners has worked well on those fish.

Cressbrook Dam
Anglers have located some good schools of Bass; mainly in the bull creek arm. Casting tail spinners, soft plastics and mask vibes has worked well on these fish. Live shrimp have worked well for Bass and Yellowbelly along the buoy line and out from the campground point, while trolling deep diving hard bodies along the rock wall at the eagles nest has produced good quality Yellowbelly.

Leslie Dam
A few reports of some reasonable Cod being caught off the bank, using live crays and frozen saltwater yabbies. Cod have also been caught working spinnerbaits and mask vibes around the edges of the dam, particularly in the afternoon and Yellowbelly have been taking mask vibes and frozen saltwater yabbies in the deeper parts of the main basin.

Glenlyon Dam
Larger Cod are starting to show up this week, with a 40lb fish caught on a trolled hard body; there’s also been a few Yellowbelly caught up around timber on frozen saltwater yabbies. With the full moon coming up, we should see some nice Cod landed this weekend.

Coolmunda Dam
Due to the recent rain Coolmunda has slowed this week, with the water still a bit dirty. There have been a few yellowbelly caught on frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp.

Boondooma Dam
Bass and Yellowbelly have been caught on the troll around pelican point and the Junction. Casting spinnerbait to the edges has also seen a few good Bass landed around the dam. Good numbers of Yellowbelly in the Stewart arm on spinnerbaits, while live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies have been working well in the same area.

Bjelke Peterson Dam
The edges have been the place to go for the Bass; casting blades, soft plastics and spinnerbaits up into the shallows and rolling them down the gentle sloping banks has proved to work best all over the dam. Still a few schooled fish in the main basin and they have been caught on tail spinners and spoons.

Moogerah Dam
Some nice Bass being caught out from the campground boat ramp on soft plastics and tailspinners, some schooled Bass in the main basin on spoons and tailspinners, while the bait anglers have picked up a few Yellowbelly around the Gorge on live shrimp and live worms.

Somerset Dam
Has been a little tough. Pelican point and Queen Street have seen a few bass, but they are hard to tempt. Slow rolling soft plastics on the bottom or slow rolling a blade has worked best. Up in the timber has seen some quality Yellowbelly landed, with a few schools hanging around the drop offs where there is timber. Mask vibes, blades and ice jigs are all working well on those fish.

Gold Coast
Offshore has seen Kingfish and Amberjack caught on knife jigs around the 50’s. Snapper, Tusk fish and Pearl Perch on the northern 36’s while the 18’s and 24’s have produced Trag Jew, Tailor and Squire. The seaway has seen some nice tailor on the north wall and trevally around the pipe line, good numbers of whiting in the Nerang river at night, a few Jack’s around Runaway Bay, Flathead off Crab Island and some nice Jew and Tailor out from Swan Bay at The Pin

Sunshine Coast
Offshore has been a bit quiet, with only a few school Mackerel coming through. Inshore fishing at Caloundra has seen plenty of flathead throughout the passage, good numbers of whiting on surface lures near the powerboat club and around the flats near the bar entrance. The Maroochy River has produced good numbers of flathead throughout, Whiting on live sand worms and saltwater yabbies on the outgoing tide. While at Noosa; heaps of Whiting around the frying pan on lures and saltwater yabbies and Flathead in the main channel on soft plastics and live herring, on the drift.
