Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

The fish­ing is start­ing to pick up with the warmer weather. If you are head­ing out, saltwater yab­bies have still been pro­duc­ing some nice gold­ens and a few smaller cod. Boon­dooma Dam: Nice bass and gold­ens are be­ing caught by bounc­ing masked vibes off the bot­tom as well as jig­ging Smak ice jigs around the start of the Stu­art and Boyne rivers. Slow trolling green and gold Smak 18ft divers has also pro­duced some nice fish. Some good gold­ens and jew caught on worms and live shrimp. No re­ports of red claw as yet. Bjelke-Petersen Dam: Live bait seems to be work­ing best at the mo­ment. Gold­ens have been caught on the troll us­ing 8m divers. I rec­om­mend Smak Blitz Baga. Some big sil­ver perch are be­ing caught on salt wa­ter yab­bies. Lake Som­er­set: Fish­ing is great at the mo­ment with blades work­ing well. Live bait has pro­duced some nice fish as with saltwater yab­bies. Soft plas­tics and masked vibes have been work­ing well around Pel­i­can Point. Coastal: Bream, flat­head and whit­ing at the mouth of the Noosa River, bream and trevally in­Woods Bay. Bream, Moses perch and flat­head in Noosa Sound and at the mouth of Weyba Creek.
