Weekly Report 27 Nov 12 - Around the Dams

Post by Brad » Tue Nov 27, 2012 6:57 pm

In the DAMS, Talk to Jim Raines
Boondooma Dam; Golden perch and bass are biting on spinner baits around the timber in the Stuart River and on blades around the timber areas..
Lake Samsonvale; Bass and golden perch are biting on live shrimp and worms at McGavin View, Bullocky Rest and Forgan Cove. A stocked impoundment permit is required and available through The Tackle Shop. There have been several tilapia caught recently, remember these are a noxious pest fish and should not be re-released if caught.
Hinze Dam; Bass and golden perch are biting on trolled hard bodied lures and bobbed worms and shrimp off the points. Saratoga can be caught at dusk on surface lures around the dam edges. J. R.

We seem to be entering a stormy period weather wise at the moment. This is about par for this time of the year and it should move the fish a bit more. There is a bit happening but it seems as though we need a bit more rain to get things going properly. In the Donnybrook area there are still bream around and some fair size ones are around , also a few snapper coming from the 112’s and Whitepatch area, and there seem to be flathead and whiting around the top end of the passage. The Bribie area has been a bit on the quiet side but is starting to look up a bit of late. There are some top quality bream around the Banksia Canals and from the structures like the Bridge and maybe the Bongaree Jetty. There are still a few summer whiting around and the front beaches are producing a few as well as from Cornets to the Air sear Rescue boat ramp. There are also some good flathead around and are best from the Buckley’s Hole to the bridge. Over around Beachmere things are going pretty well at the moment with some good whiting coming from around the 1 mile peg and the river mouth. There are also some good fish in the river and from Bakers Flats.

It is the time of year that you should be looking at maintenance of you boats. Make sure you have all the mandatory safety gear aboard. Go through you gear and check for out of date flares and be sure the flares you do have are still in their use by date limits. The same goes for your e-perb, your life jackets. Make sure your paddles are Ok and that you have the required buckets and ropes. Check your anchors; make sure you have enough rope for the area you will be fishing in. A good marker buoy is also good insurance to have and if fishing outside can be a good instrument for getting your anchor up when you might be having some difficulty with it. These few items are not just to keep the Fisheries boys at bay but could well be the instruments that save your life and that of your passengers. It is also good practice to make sure your radio is in good working order and to be safe carry you’re Mobile with you.
