Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

Fish­ing seems to be go­ing well with lures at the moment. Stump Jumpers in the 75mm and 55mm seem to be the lures of choice for the big gold­ens and smarter cod. Salt­wa­ter yab­bies on the bot­tom are still work­ing, with the weather quickly warm­ing up. Boondooma Dam: There are lots of big bass and golden perch be­ing landed on trolled SMAK 5/8 spin­ner baits in the tim­bered sec­tions of the dam. The odd golden and jew­fish is be­ing caught on live shrimp at the start of the Stu­art tim­ber and deep rocky points. Bjelke-Petersen Dam: Nice big golden perch be­ing caught on SMAK Mini Coop­ers in white, red and black colours. Try cast­ing them to the deep edges for a good chance of a bite. Bass are plen­ti­ful at the moment, be­ing caught on blades around the deep points in 25ft of water. There are some nice fish in the tim­ber be­ing caught on live shrimp and salt water yab­bies. The dam is fish­ing really well, with no ma­jor change this week. If you’re on hol­i­days, make sure you get out there and en­joy it while the con­di­tions are good. Lake Som­er­set: Som­er­set is also fish­ing really well at the moment, with mask vibes do­ing the job nicely for many fish­ers. Pel­i­can Point and Queen St are still the best ar­eas to fish. Live bait has pro­duced some nice fish as with salt water yab­bies. There is still no change this week.
