Fish­ing Re­ports

Central and North Burnett Times - - OUT& ABOUT -

Bjelke-Petersen Dam:

The fish­ing slowed a lit­tle im­me­di­ately af­ter the 127mm we had last week but over the weekend plenty of fish have been caught. Lots of small bass have been caught mainly on lures such as blades - a lot of fun for ev­ery­one, young or old. Plenty of big yel­low­belly be­ing caught over the last few days on jig­ging blades and deep div­ing lures in pur­ples, black/red, greens/or­ange. The yel­low­belly still sit­ting fairly deep around the 4.5m and deeper. These nice yel­low­belly (above) were caught by Jake Davis who is back again stay­ing with his Grand­par­ents. Jake and his grand­par­ents are reg­u­lar vis­i­tors to the dam and Jake was very pleased with his catch. He caught his yel­low­belly on pur­ple deep div­ing lure and his last one was so big it even broke his rod!!! Red­claw have slowed right down with the cold weather and not much flow in from the re­cent rain. Dam level is at 69%.

Boondooma Dam:

Well the big bass are back, lots of re­ports this week of 50cm bass landed. They were manly caught flick­ing spin­ner­baits and crank baits at the banks. Great num­bers of yel­low­belly with bait and on the troll. With the moon faze and barom­e­ter (on the move) signs are set for the next few weeks leading into Easter. Red­claw have slowed be­cause of the rain but those who ven­ture up into the rivers are be­ing re­warded with some big ones. So its qual­ity not quan­tity with the red­claw at the mo­ment.
