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. The Tweed River has been producing flathead between Chinderah and Tumbulgum, flathead and sand crabs in Cobaki Lakes, sand whiting on the banks at Oxley Cove and the Piggery and mud crabs in the mid to upper reaches. Offshore: Pearl perch and trag jew are biting at Caloundra 12 Mile. Bream and flathead are being caught at the northern end of Bribie Island. Snapper are biting on the 36s east of the Pin Bar at Jumpinpin and tuskfish, trag jew, flathead and a few snapper on the 36s east of Southport. Don’t forget the Dalby Fishing Competition on the banks of the Myall Creek on October 28.
