Somerset Dam has picked up over the past week; with reasonable numbers of quality Bass hitting tailspinners and trolled darker coloured hard bodies around Pelican Point, looking in 25-30ft of water has worked best. Cressbrook has produced fairly good numbers of Bass, casting Blades and Jackalls to the edges has produced a few fish, there is also good numbers of quality fish suspended in the deeper water, in the main basin, trolled hard bodies, spoons and tailspinners have picked up the majority of these fish. Trolling hard bodies have worked well around the junction at Boondooma this week, the mid to upper reaches of the Stuart arm have also produced some nice Bass on Jackalls and Spinnerbaits. At Bjelke Peterson, casting spinnerbaits to the edges has produced a few Bass, working the spinnerbaits slow and close to the bottom has been the best method, while trolling hard bodies and hopping soft vibes has worked well on the flats and Moogerah has produced good numbers again, with blades and TN60 Jackalls working the best, particularly around the timber.

Plenty of activity for Yellowbelly and Cod fishing this week, at Cooby Dam, blades and Ice Jigs have worked well on the deeper fish, while frozen Saltwater Yabbies and live Shrimp have again been popular baits and trolling smaller hard bodies along the weed edges has also been successfull. Glenlyon has been good again this week, with plenty of Yellowbelly and a few Cod getting about, the Cod have been hitting bigger Spinnerbaits in the timbered areas, the Yellowbelly have been hitting a variety of hard body lures, with TN60’s working the best on these fish. Coolmunda continues to improve as the water settles, using live shrimp around the timber has picked up the majority of fish, with hard bodies only picking up a few. Leslie Dam continues to produce good numbers, with anglers landing fish all over the dam, hard body lures, soft vibes and blades are all working well for Yellowbelly and Cod, while live worms have been effective for the land based anglers. Somerset is also producing Yellowbelly at the moment, trolling hard bodies in the Pelican Point and Bay 13 areas has been effective, while blades and Ice Jigs have worked well in the timber; and in the South Burnett, both Boondooma and Bjelke Peterson dams have again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, in Boondooma, bait has been effective in the Stuart and Boyne arms and casting spinnerbaits around the timber in the upper reaches of the Stuart arm has produced some big fish as well, while at Bjelke Peterson, Yellowbelly have been taking spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, with Bass Point being a popular spot. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondi has been fishing consistently for Yellowbelly, with Jackalls and spinnerbaits working the best.

Offshore fishing has been steady this week, the 18’s have produced good size Snapper and Kingies, while on the 50’s, Pearl Perch, Kingies and Amberjack have been on the move. Inshore fishing has seen Kingies and School Jew in the Seaway, reasonable numbers of Flathead at the Pin, Whiting out from Sea World and near the Council Chambers in the Nerang River and the upper reaches of the Coomera River has fished well for Mangrove Jack. At the Sunny Coast, offshore fishing has again been a bit quiet this week, but there has been the odd Spotty Mackerel and Yellowfin Tuna getting about and the outer reefs have produced the odd Snapper, Pearl Perch, Cobia and Kingy. Inshore fishing has seen a few Flathead and Whiting taken in the Passage, quality Mangrove Jack are hanging around structure, in most of the estuaries, but you do have work hard for them, the Maroochy River has seen some good action for Whiting, on poppers along the sand bars and in the Noosa River, there are plenty of Flathead, Whiting, School Jew and Mangrove Jack throughout the system.
