Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

Lo­cal Fish­ing Re­ports: Fish­ing still go­ing re­ally well with it heat­ing up. Still some nice cod around on big hard bod­ied lures and some good gold­ens around be­ing caught on 55mm stump jumpers. Saltwater yab­bies still the best bait to use with worms catch­ing the odd fish also.

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. Most of the fish be­ing landed in the tim­bered ar­eas of the dam. 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 be­ing caught on salt wa­ter yab­bies.

Lake Som­er­set: Fish­ing great at the mo­ment with blades work­ing well. Pel­i­can Point and Queen St still the best ar­eas to fish. Live bait has pro­duced some nice fish as with salt wa­ter yab­bies. Soft plas­tics and masked vibes work­ing well around Pel­i­can Point.

Coastal: Span­ish mack­erel on Ark­wright Shoal, dart and whit­ing along the beaches, golden trevally along the La Balsa Park reach of the Mooloolah River. Jew at night in the deep holes at Mof­fat and Cur­rimundi Beaches, bream along The Board­walk, flat­head and whit­ing in Cur­rimundi Lake. Sand whit­ing on the banks op­po­site the Power Boat Club and at the mouth of Bells Creek and trevally and flat­head in the canals around Caloun­dra. Sand whit­ing in the lower reaches of the Pim­pama River and on the first of the flood tide on Gold Bank, flat­head on the ebb tide at the en­trance to Swan Bay and try for jew inside the Pin Bar.

Off­shore: Pearl perch and snap­per at Caloun­dra 12 Mile still. Trag jew and flat­head on the 36s east of South­port on Wed­nes­day and pearl perch, pig­fish, snap­per and mor­wong on the 50s NE to­day at South­port. Pearl perch, snap­per, tusk­fish and flat­head on the 24s NE of the Tweed as well. Don’t for­get the Dalby Fish­ing Com­pe­ti­tion on the banks of the Myall Creek on Oc­to­ber 28.
