Lure of the week

Cranka Crab 
The Cranka Crab’s Floating Claw design makes this lure come alive in the water. The floating claws wave around with the slightest lure or water movement, mimicking a real defensive crab. The floating claws also make the Cranka Crab incredibly snag-resistant and place the hooks in the ideal position for positive hookups.

Cooby Dam
Remains shut due to the Blue-green algae outbreak.

Cressbrook Dam
Its definitely been a little tougher on the lake this week, quantity over quality. The smaller fish have been in good numbers off the main lake points in the basin, Spoons and Blades still being the lure of choice. 

Somerset Dam
The best time of year to fish Somerset is upon us, some great fishing has been had during the week with some anglers having productive sessions up too 30 fish and some quality fish up to 3.5 kg. Bay 13, Queen Street and Kirkliegh Flats have been holding big numbers of fish. Spoons and Plastics have caught their fair share of fish. 

Leslie Dam
Good numbers of fish caught this week on the lake, the smaller fish have been on the move with most being caught being around that 30cm mark, The bait anglers having the most success, saltwater yabbies and worms being the bait of choice, Jigging soft vibes and blades have worked for other anglers.

Borumba Dam
Good results coming from Lake Borumba this week, the fish have schooled up in the junction and out on Borumba flat, Spoons and plastics being the best technique. Early morning working the shallow bays and points with jerkbaits is always worth a try.

Copeton Dam
With the school holidays over the boat traffic has quietened down and the fishing has definitely picked up, the every faithful Jackall Gantarel fished close up onto the shallow banks and points has been by the most productive technique.

Pindari Dam
While the water levels stay consistent, the dam has fished well over the last few weeks, Topwater has been the aim for most anglers as this lake has some great shallow bays while it's low. Casting mumblers and larger Spinnerbaits to the rock walls during the day has seen some good fish caught. 

Moreton Bay
Tough conditions last weekend offshore didn't allow many anglers to head out, The Southern end of Moreton Bay was definitely the better option for most, plenty of pan-sized snapper hanging around harry Atkinson reef and peel island, early mornings on the first of the run-out tide have been the stand out time. Smaller plastics and a well-presented bait have seen plenty of good fish caught. Good numbers of Tailor have finally moved into the port of Brisbane, targeting these fish with metal slug or sticks have been very successful.
