Regional Fishing Report - 21 September 2011

Fishing Report
Thursday 21nd September, 2011

Last week saw a Bass competition held at Somerset Dam, as part of the Police Games, local officer Brad Clark organized the tournament, which saw a total of 43 anglers compete. The event was open to all emergency services people and local Fireman Peter Robinson took out first place. Some other locals that fared well were, Arthur Allen 2nd, Howard Althaus 6th, Wayne Woods 4th and Brad Clark finished 10th. The biggest Bass for the event was 3.64kg and the main concentrations of fish were in the Queen Street area, with the majority of them caught casting or trolling lures.
The fishing has picked up over the past week, with some nice Bass being caught on Blades near drop-offs in the Stuart and Boyne arms of the dam. In the same areas there has also been some good Yellowbelly taken on Spinnerbaits and live Shrimp in 15 to 20 feet of water and the Redclaw have started to move again.
A few Yellowbelly and Bass on live Shrimp in the timbered areas of the dam, the creeks above and below the dam have produced some good numbers of Bass and Yellowbelly on Spinnerbaits and Jackalls. As the weather warms up it will be worth trolling hard body lures along drop-offs in the dam to pick up a few fish.

The Queen Street area is the hot spot at the moment, with the majority of fish coming from here. They have been taken on a variety of lures, including soft plastics, ice jigs and blades, if your casting and trolling hard bodies has proven to be successfull.

Still a bit quiet here, with the odd Yellowbelly being caught off the banks, there have been a few Jewies and the odd Silver Perch caught as well.

This dam is still fishing well with plenty of Yellowbelly, a few Jewies and the odd Silver Perch being caught. Live worms and frozen saltwater yabbies have been the best bait and there have also been a few fish taken on trolled lures.

Yellowbelly are still on the bite in the town reaches of the Macintyre River, frozen Saltwater Yabbies are proving to be the best bait at the moment, and there has also been the odd fish taken on lures. There are also a few Carp getting about.

Some nice Cod around the 65-70cm mark have been landed over the past week, with red and black lures being the most successful. There has also been some good catches of Yellowbelly using live shrimp for bait.


Offshore reports have been limited due to the strong winds over the past week. Inshore has produced plenty of Flathead throughout the Tweed and all through the estuaries and broadwater at the Gold Coast, Summer Whiting at Kalinga Banks and some nice Jack’s have been landed around bridges and structure in the Tweed and the Broadwater.


Offshore fishing has been a bit quiet with only a few Kingfish being taken on soft plastics. Inshore, good numbers of Jacks around the bridges at night in the Maroochy River, plenty of big Flathead and Summer Whiting in the estuaries from Caloundra to Noosa. The Noosa River is still producing good numbers of Trevelly, and some huge Jack’s on live Mullet and there are plenty of Crabs on the move in all the creeks.

School Mackerel around the Beacons, a few Cobia at Watumba, Urangan Jetty is producing heaps of quality Summer Whiting and River Heads has seen some nice Barra caught with the rise in water temperature.
