Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

Lo­cal Fish­ing Re­ports: Seems to be the lit­tle bit of rain was what we needed to turn the fish on in some ar­eas. Good size gold­ens be­ing caught out at Chin­chillaWeir. Bob­bing salt­wa­ter yab­bies and small crays or trolling jack­all Tn60s have been the go in wider parts of the river. Boondooma Dam: A lit­tle bit has been shut down be­cause of the re­cent in­flow of water. The odd bass still be­ing caught on white soft plas­tics and ice jigs in the basin of the dam. Some nice gold­ens be­ing caught in the tim­ber on live shrimp. Bjelke-Petersen Dam: Nice big golden perch be­ing caught on Smak mini cooper’s in white and red/black colours cast­ing to the deep edges. Bass really plen­ti­ful at the moment, be­ing caught on blades around the deep points in 25ft of water. Some nice fish in the tim­ber on live shrimp and salt­wa­ter yab­bies. Over­all the dam is fish­ing really well. Lake Som­er­set: Fish­ing great at the moment with mask vibes 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. Still no change this week. Coastal: Spotty mack­erel, long tail tuna and small black mar­lin off Wathumba, queen fish around the bay is­lands, long tail tuna and mack tuna in the cen­tral bay of Her­vey Bay. Bream and whit­ing along Mud­jimba Beach and the North Shore of the Ma­roochy River mouth, flat­head around the chan­nel mark­ers at Bli Bli. Sand whit­ing in Ma­roochy Wa­ters Canals, flat­head and whit­ing in Cobby Pas­sage and flat­head in Ja­cobs Well Chan­nel at the Pin. Off­shore: Sweet­lip and moses perch on North Reef at Noosa.
