Cooby dam
Cooby continues to produce some nice fish over the last week mainly on salt water yabbies and ZX blades fishing the deeper water. The northern end of the dam still seems to be the best option; locating the fish close to the bottom will be your best bet.

Cressbrook dam
Cressbrook has been producing the best quality fish around our local area this week with some good sized bass well over 50cm being landed, Tailspinners and spoons being the lure of choice, Live shrimp have been the best bait to use.

Somerset dam
Somerset Still producing big bass, fish are very spread all throughout the dam, casting Spoons and Tailspiners have been the best option, the larger fish seem to have moved up the dam with the Kirkleigh flats being the best area. Red rock also holding good numbers of fish.

Copeton dam
Copeton continues to produce some giant cod with the morning bites still the pick of the times. large topwaters and shallow swimbaits have been getting the most attention. As the day heats up the fish have been caught on Mumblers and spinnerbaits grubbed along the bottom out from the steep rocky banks while the early mornings and late afternoons have seen the up in the shallow grassy bays.

Boondooma dam
Last weekend BASS Nation held their final tournament of the year, with the big lead up to the comp with some big fish landed, a lot of fish were weighed in over the weekend, The outstanding lure for the comp was the Hot bite Gang Banger Spoon and the Nories Wasabi Spoon, fishing areas such as pelican point, the junction and the main basin all held big numbers of fish.

Moreton bay
The perfect time of year to be in the bay with good numbers of squire around the reefs and islands the key is early morning or mid week sessions the boat pressure seems to be slowing them down through the day sun up will see the best bite window with many anglers grabbing the selves 10 or so good snapper for the morning. Both bait and soft plastics work really well and a berley pot can do wonders.

Tip of the week
The ever popular ice jigging technique has been the easiest and most productive way to catch our natives over the past couple years this technique originated from the Eskimos fishing a hole in the ice and jigging vertically. This technique is especially effective in cold water and cold conditions so no better time to give it go than now.
