Cressbrook Dam has again seen good schools of Bass around the main point in the bull creek arm of the dam and also off Deer Island; tail spinners and spoons have worked well on these fish; live shrimp have also been effective. Somerset Dam has picked up slightly this week; Queen Street, Bay13 and the Pelican Point areas are all holding fish, with Tailspinners, spoons and Blades working well and working the edges with TN60 Jackalls in the timbered area at Kirkleigh has produced some good fish also. Boondooma Dam has seen the Stuart and Boyne arms producing plenty of Bass around the timber on spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies have picked up a few in the main basin. Good numbers of Bass taking live shrimp and trolled hard bodies throughout the main basin at Bjelke Peterson, while spinnerbaits and chatterbaits have picked up a few off the edges. Not a lot has changed at Moogerah and Maroon this week, with Moogerah producing good numbers on hard bodies, blades and live shrimp, sticking to the timbered area is the best option and Maroon produced some quality Bass again, targeting the weed edges with live shrimp and suspending minnows early morning has given the best results.

Cooby Dam has again produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly this past week, trolling smaller, darker coloured hard bodies, late afternoon has provided the best results, working just out from the weed edges has been the best areas to target. Glenlyon has fished quite well again this week, with a few Cod hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while live crays and shrimp have picked up good numbers of Yellowbelly and TN60 Jackalls worked around the timber have picked up a few as well. Trolled hard bodies have worked well at Coolmunda this week, working the drop-offs to the old creek beds and out from the wall has been productive, while live shrimp and crays have picked up a few around the timber. Leslie Dam has produced quality Yellowbelly over the past week; casting TN60 Jackalls around the Black Boys picked up a few, while trolling hard bodies in the main basin has also worked well, this method also picked up a couple of Cod and the bait anglers had success, mainly in the northern end of the dam, using frozen saltwater yabbies and live shrimp. At Boondooma, casting spinnerbaits around the timber in the Stuart and Boyne arms has been effective and trolled hard bodies has also picked up a few, while Bjelke Peterson has also produced quality Yellowbelly in the same areas and using the same methods as with the Bass. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondi is on the improve, with good numbers of Yellowbelly hitting hard bodies and spinnerbaits and the Condamine continues to produce good numbers of Yellowbelly on spinnerbaits and hard bodies at most of the popular weirs and holes.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has been relatively quiet this past week; there has been the odd Kingy on the 50’s, a few Pearl Perch on the 36’s and Tailor and Trag Jew on the 18’s and 24’s, while inshore has produced Trevally and Jew along the northern wall of the Seaway, the Coomera River is fishing well for Mangrove Jack on hard bodies and live Mullet and the Pin is producing some big Jewies just inside the bar crossing, Whiting at night, near the Council Chambers and a few Sand Crabs are starting to show up in Tipplers Passage. Offshore fishing at the Sunny Coast has also been pretty quiet, with only a few Mackerel at 5 Mile Reef and the wider reefs have produced low numbers of Snapper, Sweetlip and Cobia. Inshore fishing has produced big Whiting, early morning, off Military Jetty, Bream and Flathead off the Boardwalk, big Flathead off the northern tip of Bribie Island and the Noosa River has seen good numbers of Jack’s holding tight to structure, with live baits working well on those fish, plenty of Whiting on live worms and Yabbies, big Flathead at the ski run and the upper reaches have started to produce a few Muddies.
