The last week of the school holidays has been a rewarding one for some. Many anglers are making the most of the warmer weather and wetting a line.

With the Flathead Classic on this weekend there are a lot of people pre fishing for them. Most people are focusing around the numerous creeks, channels and sand bars that make up Jumpinpin.

Trolling small hard bodies is very popular and focusing on the 2-3m mark should see you hooked up in no time. Make sure you are not going to quick as flathead can be relatively lazy and give up chasing a lure if its going to fast. Lures of choice for trolling would be the Jackall Soul Shad, Ecogear SX60 and the Tilsan Minnow. All of these lures have a great action and tight wobble that flathead seem to find irresistible.

The mouth of the Brisbane River is still producing some cracker bream of late. Whether you are fishing off the bank or in a boat there is some good fishing that is available to you. If you are fishing from a boat try casting small diving hard bodied lures like the Atomic Cranks or Ecogear SX40s at the rock wall along Fisherman Island. Bream are constantly moving up and down this wall feeding on small fish, crustaceans and morsels they find. If you are using baits try casting them as close to the rock wall as possible to get in the feeding zone. Hold onto your rod, as this habitat is also home to squire, estuary cod and the odd jew fish.

If you are restricted to the bank try fishing around the Pinkemba area or around Breakfast Creek as there are reports of good numbers being caught. Bream are the main target at the moment but threadfin salmon, jew fish, flathead and the odd tailor are possible. Numerous baits and lures will work around this area. Paddle tails like the Keitech Fat Impacts are particularly effective.

In the Freshwater Somerset Dam is firing on all cylinders at the moment and it is producing big bass and lots of them.
Fishing for bass in Somerset is a little restricted to the boaties but there are still some bank fishing options towards the northern end of the dam. For the boat angler’s reports of large schools of bass are coming from the Spit area and up and down Queen Street. Slow rolling Jackall Mask Vibes or Nories In-The-Bait tail spinners through schools in the 30ft depth range.

The bass and yellowbelly in the northern part of the dam are falling for baits of freshwater worms or prawns. Try using a float if fishing off the bank as it will help avoid snags and loss of fishing gear. Cast towards structure as this is where the natives like to hid out and wait to ambush their prey.

Hope everyone can get out this weekend and cant wait to hear all the fishy stories during next week.
