Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

Lo­cal Fish­ing Re­ports: Lov­ing this weather for the river fish­ing at the mo­ment. Fish­ing go­ing bal­lis­tic on lures. Best lures for the gold­ens and cod seem to be orange and black stump jumpers and orange and black smak spin­ner baits. On the bait side of things saltwater yab­bies still go­ing well. 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. Some nice fish com­ing on spin­ner baits in the tim­bered ar­eas of the dam and 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 with hard and soft bod­ied jack­alls. Some big golden perch and bass be­ing caught on salt wa­ter yab­bies and worms. 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, school and spotty mack­erel on Mur­phy’s Reef and the In­ner Gneer­ings. Bream, flat­head and whit­ing along the beaches at Mooloolaba. Sand whit­ing at Red and Banksia Beaches, jew at night on soft plas­tics un­der the Bri­bie Bridge. Bream be­tween the bridge and mouth of Ningi Creek and sand crabs in the main chan­nel at Bri­bie. Off­shore: Trag jew and snap­per on the 24s east of South­port. Snap­per, pearl perch, pig­fish and mor­wong on the 50s east of the Tweed.
