Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

Lo­cal Fish­ing Re­ports: Lo­cal creeks are fish­ing the best they have in a long time. Heaps of gold­ens be­ing caught bob­bing saltwater yab­bies and worms, but even more be­ing caught on bright coloured hard bod­ied lures. Have heard of at least 10 cod over the 70cm mark this week and most of them be­ing caught on lures. Boon­dooma Dam: Nice bass and gold­ens caught by bounc­ing masked vibes off the bot­tom as well as jig­ging SMAK ice jigs around the start of the Stu­art and Boyne. Slow trolling green and gold SMAK 18ft divers has also pro­duced some nice fish around rocky points. 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. Also some nice size bass get­ting around again on trolled hard and soft bod­ied jack­alls. Lake Som­er­set: Fish­ing great at the mo­ment with blades work­ing well. Live bait has pro­duced some nice fish as with salt wa­ter yab­bies. Soft plas­tics and masked vibes work­ing well around Pel­i­can Point. Coastal: Sand whit­ing in the lower reaches of the Ma­roochy River, chop­per tai­lor and trevally at the Cod Hole, trevally and man­grove jack around the Mo­tor­way Bridge py­lons in the Ma­roochy Re­gion. Sand whit­ing up­stream from the power lines, flat­head and bream at the Five Ways and flat­head be­tween Eden and Kan­ga­roo Is­lands at Jump­in­pin. Off­shore: Red em­peror and pearl perch about 12 miles north of Wide Bay Bar at Rain­bow Beach. Snap­per, pearl perch, tusk­fish and moses perch on North Reef on Thurs­day and snap­per, pearl perch, gold spot­ted wrasse, hus­sar, tusk­fish and moses perch on the Bar­won Banks out from Noosa. Yel­low­tail king and moses perch on Coolum Reef and pearl perch and snap­per at Caloun­dra 12 Mile. Don’t for­get the Dalby Fish­ing Com­pe­ti­tion on the banks of the Myall Creek on Oc­to­ber 28.
