Cressbrook Dam has again seen good schools of Bass in the bull creek arm of the dam. Casting tail spinners, soft plastics and mask vibes has worked well on these fish; live shrimp have also been effective. Somerset Dam has produced reasonable numbers of Bass this week, The Spit, Bay13 and the Pelican Point area have been the best spots to target, Tailspinners, Soft Vibes and Blades are proving to be effective and live shrimp have been productive for the bait anglers. Boondooma Dam saw spinnerbaits and blades picking up good numbers off the edges, trolled hard bodies have also worked well through the narrows and around Pelican Point. Good numbers of quality Bass at Bjelke Peterson this past week; hopping soft vibes, or trolling TN60’s in 20-30ft of water has given the best results. Moogerah has fished quite well again, working the timbered area towards the southern end of the dam has been the best, with TN60 Jackalls being the most effective, the fish were mainly located in the deeper water, however spinnerbaits did pick up some nice fish off the edges and Maroon produced some quality Bass on surface and there were also decent numbers landed, working spinnerbaits and small crankbaits around the weed edges.

Cooby Dam has again produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly this past week, using live shrimp and frozen saltwater yabbies or trolling spinnerbaits and hopping blades early morning/ late afternoon has provided the best results and working just out from the dam wall buoy line has been the best area to target. Glenlyon has fished quite well this week, with a few Cod hitting bigger spinnerbaits and trolled hard bodies, while jigged blades and trolled hard bodies have worked the best for the Yellowbelly. Darker coloured lures 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 working soft vibes and blades around the timber picked up a few as well. Leslie Dam has seen Yellowbelly taking trolled hard bodies, blades, soft vibes and live shrimp in about 20ft of water, while casting blades and lipless crankbaits around structure has been effective as well. At Boondooma, casting spinnerbaits to the edges at Pelican Point and around the timber in the Stuart arm 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 has worked the best. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondi is still dirty, so there’s nothing to report, Yellowbelly early morning and late afternoon around the snags in the Dumeresq River, the Condamine has again produced good numbers of Yellowbelly, particularly around the Pratten area and the Brisbane River has seen some quality Bass and Yellowbelly taken on a variety of hard body lures.

Offshore fishing at the Gold Coast has seen Yellowfin Tuna and Striped Marlin out wide, Pearl Perch and Kingies on the 50’s and the 24’s and 36’s have produced quality Mulloway as well as a few Snapper, while inshore has produced small GT’s and School Jew near the pipeline, at the top of the tide, Flathead 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 quality Flathead near Kalinga Bank and Crusoe Island, as well as some big Jewies just inside the bar crossing. Offshore fishing at the Sunny Coast has seen the Barwon Banks producing Red Throat Sweetlip and Moses Perch; a few Tuna have also been taken on the troll, while the closer reefs have fished well for Snapper and Mulloway. Inshore fishing has seen plenty of Whiting on the sand banks opposite the Power Boat Club, Bream and Trevally off the Boardwalk, Jacks in the Maroochy River on plastics and fresh baits and the Noosa River has seen good numbers of Jack’s holding tight to structure, with live baits working well on those fish and the river mouth has fished well for Whiting and Flathead.
