Fishing Our Region
Cressbrook - Some very challenging fishing again this week with the Bass being very hard to tempt on lures. The best method has been trolling out in front of the ramp, covering ground and finding those active fish will be your best bet. Quite good numbers of Yellow Belly have been caught working Blades and again soft vibes off the larger points and deeper structured banks.
Somerset - The fishing hasn’t been easy although finding the fish isn’t hard. The southern end of Pelican Point is still the best location to start. THE Hot Bite spectre stands out yet again this week, keeping these tight to the bottom is key. Anglers trolling this same area have had the better success when the times are tough. The afternoon bite is by the pick of the times as these fish are schooling up much more during these times.
Leslie Dam - With Holidays in full swing and the lake being very busy this hasn’t worried the fish. Some outstanding results again this week. Massive numbers of Yellow Belly have been caught throughout the lake. Targeting the edges of the creek bed with isolated structure has been the go too. You can not go past the Zx blade and smaller soft vibes at the present time.
For the Bait anglers saltwater yabbies and worms being there best options.
Moogerah - By far the pick of the Bass Impoundments at the moment with some very good fishing to be had. The deeper flats amongst the timber is holding great numbers of fish, targeting these fish with metal blades, spectres and heavily weighted plastics. Some fish are starting to appear on the spit aswell, these fish have been quite hard to tempt with the lake being very busy. As Holidays come to a close we could see some even better fishing in the next few weeks.
Monduran - It’s been a very slow and steady week at Lake misery, the fish have been quite easy to find but getting them to bite has been another story. With the days been warm the arvo and Night bite has been the standout time. Targeting the large points amongst Bird Bar, B Bay and the main Basin with the ever faithful Molix 140 has paid off. A lot of smaller fish have been on the bite again, most of these fish have been caught casting weedless plastics and suspending Jerkabaits, the Samaki Redic and snack all squirrel being the standout.
