Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

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.
