Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

Rain on the week­end shut the river fish­ing down a lit­tle but it should come good this week. There are still re­ports of nice cod be­ing caught on SMAK spin­ner baits and nice gold­ens on saltwater yab­bies. The odd fish is also be­ing caught on worms. Boon­dooma Dam: Slow trolling SMAK 16ft and Golden Child hard bod­ied divers and spin­ner baits are work­ing well on bass and golden perch in 16 to 24 foot of wa­ter around the main basin, junc­tion and the river arms. Cast­ing spin­ner baits and masked vibes to the edges in the Stu­art tim­ber and Boyne tim­ber is pro­duc­ing bass. Qual­ity golden perch are be­ing caught on bait around points and in the timbers. There is still not much ac­tion with red claw. Bjelke-Petersen Dam: Live bait seems to be work­ing the best at the mo­ment. Gold­ens have been caught on the troll with hard and soft bod­ied jack­als. Some big golden perch and bass are be­ing caught on salt wa­ter yab­bies and worms. There is not expected to be any change this week. Lake Som­er­set: Fish­ing is great at the mo­ment with mask vibes work­ing well. Pel­i­can Point and Queen Street are still the best ar­eas to fish. Live bait has pro­duced some nice fish as with salt wa­ter yab­bies. Coastal: Dart in the surf gut­ters north of In­dian Head, jew are be­ing caught off the rocks at Waddy Point and sand whit­ing in the low tide gut­ters along the eastern beaches at Fraser Is­land. Flat­head and grunter bream are bit­ing at the mouth of Bul­lock and Glasshouse Creeks, sand whit­ing at Lime Pocket and small snap­per at Mis­sion Point at Don­ny­brook. Flat­head and bream are bit­ing in Ja­cob­sWell Chan­nel and tai­lor and small snap­per around the pow­er­lines at the Pin.
