Fishing Our Region
Leslie - The Yellow Belly have yet to shut down, still fishing unbelievably well. The isolated structure off the edges of the creek bed has had the best results, working Blades and soft vibes again have been hard to go past. If your willing to put the time in for the big fish, plenty of Cod have been on the Move. Targeting the shallower edges of rarkyb, morning will give you the best chances, swimbaits and larger chatterbaits being productive.
Somerset - Somerset has been a little hit and miss the past few weeks and it continues, the colder weather has made anglers make some adjustments. The northern end of the lake has started to hold a lot more numbers as these fish move further up the lake at this time of year, the shallow flats along Queen street and Kirkliegh has been best, while pelican point is still a good area to start your search, plastics and spoons getting the better quality of fish. Smak Ice Jigs have also been a favourite for a lot of anglers.
Wivenhoe - By far the pic of our Bass Lakes and with good reason, this lake is always in tune come winter time and this winter is no different. Plenty of schooled fish holding out from Billy’s bay, the Quality of fish has been unbelievable, a wide variety of spoons have been working well, as for the edge fishing it’s been good if not better. Deep diving cranks like the Hide up 300 and 400 has been popular and you can’t go past the forever faithful Jackall TN60.
Moogerah - Great to see this lake back to its former glory with plenty of fish around, the flats inside the timber have fished the best while the main lake points are also holding good fish. Again like other lakes, soft plastics like the slider grub has been popular and a range of Metal blades and spoons.
Copeton - It’s been a slow start to winter but the cold frosts have arrived which really makes these fish become a lot more active, shallow grassy bays is your best place to start, these fish are smartening up with wood of fishing pressure so be sure to be as stealthy as you can, minimal use on the electric motor. Swimbaits like the Jackall Gigantarel and Gantarel is always a hard bait to go past while big Top waters like the Balista has been popular.
