Lure of the week
Sadly Cooby Dam was closed to all activities by the council last week. We will keep you posted as we are given more details.
From TRC website: Cooby Dam remains closed for all boating, fishing and picnic activities. Each week water is tested to ensure it meets safety standards for recreational activity (direct contact without water treatment). Enterococci toxins are currently at 150 CFU per 100mL and this needs to be under 35 CFU per 100mL. We are hopeful this will improve and allow for re-opening in the coming weeks.
More great results this past week, the early morning proving to be the pick of the times. Right out from the ramp is holding good numbers of fish, as well as a few points in the main basin. These fish have reacted well too Spoons like the Hot Bite Raptors and heavily weighted plastics. The 3-inch slider grub has accounted for multiple big fish. A few yellowbelly also getting caught on zx40s and trolling.
Somerset has really started to heat up this last week and should continue this trend with more warmer weather forecast. It has started to produce some amazing fish with good numbers. The fish have been quite spread out through the entire lake, the Spit and Bay 13 still being the go too areas spots with plenty of fish schooled up. Spoons and sliders have been the go to lures for schooled up fish, while trolling to locate the fish has been a useful strategy.
