Local Fishing Reports: Chinchilla is fishing great at the moment, lots of fish being caught on jackall mask vibes trolled behind the boat and Smak spinner baits in mini Cooper S. Warra also producing some nice fish on TN60 and 50 jackalls trolled from the boat or casted from the edge. The odd golden on a stump jumper or RMG poltergeist casted from the edge below the weir at Loudoun Bridge. Boondooma Dam: Bass and golden perch on bait and lures along the deeper rocky banks in the main basin around Pelican Point, at the Junction and along Leisegangs Ledge. Bjelke-Petersen Dam: The dam is still fishing really well with heaps of fish coming on trolled Smak 16 hard bodies in a purple colour in the main basin. Lots of fish coming from the upper reaches of the dam casting Smak spinner baits and Littlemax blades in 15 to 25ft of water. Some really nice golden perch on live shrimp in the timbered areas of the dam. Lake Somerset: Bass and golden perch on bait and lures around the timber at Kirkleagh and bass on soft plastics, blades and mask vibes at Queen Street and Bay 13. Cresbrook Dam: Has been tough again, however if you do manage to catch some they have been good quality. Fishing the submerged point across from the rock wall in Cresbrook Creek has been the most successful. Casting plastics with paddle tails on ½ oz jiger-heads has been the best lures. Fish have been sitting in four to seven metres of water so casting to the banks and around structure in shallower water may be the best option at the moment. Coastal: Queenfish around the bay islands, golden trevally in Sandy Straits, flathead, grunter bream, mangrove jack in the creeks on the western side of Fraser Island. Bream, mangrove jack and thread-fin salmon in the Burrum River, flathead at River and Burrum Heads, sand whiting on the making tide along the beaches from Burrum Heads to Urangan. Threadfin salmon and grunter in the lower reaches of the Mary River and bass on small hard bodied lures under the cotton bush trees near Teddington Weir in the upper reaches. All at Hervey Bay this week. Offshore: Snapper, maori cod, pigfish, tuskfish and morwong on the 32s east of Kingscliff. Snapper, pearl perch, tuskfish and trag jew on the 36s east of the Tweed and Snapper. Tuskfish, spangled emperor and wahoo on the Barwon Banks and tuskfish, maori cod, sweetlip and moses perch at Caloundra 9 Mile of Mooloolaba last week.
