Fishing Our Region

CoobyIt’s been quite a good week on our local lake, the weather has been fantastic during the week allowing anglers to get amongst the fish. Metal Blades like the ever faithful Zx40 & 43 has proved to be the best option while soft vibes also fished vertically have also created a lot of interest. Good sized Yellow Belly have been caught, targeting the spindly trees and deeper submerged structure is your best bet. Since the colder weather has hit the trolling anglers have found it a little more tough. If that’s your interest working lipless crankbaits and deeper hardbodies have worked best. Saltwater Yabbies and Live worms have been productive for other fisherman. 

Cressbrook - A lot of smaller fish around this past week, quite a few of fish have been located off the main lake points and up into the Cressbrook Creek arm. 
Blades again have been successful, Everygreen Little Max and Flash Union Blades have been popular. A few anglers have had success working the edges with 61 & 67 Squirrels aswell as the Daiwa Double Clutch Jerkbait, long pauses are key!

Leslie - Leslie stays the same with plenty of quality yellow belly still being active, the deeper water is where it’s at, finding isolated structure off the edge of the creek beds has had the best results. Zx Blades and soft vibes working yet again. For the bait anglers saltwater yabbies proving dominant yet again. 

Somerset  - A recent Tournament on our big fish lake resulted in quite a tough weekend for a lot of anglers. The boat traffic Realy paid its toll on the school fish with them shutting down and being very hard to tempt. The edge fishing was the stand out for the bigger fish. Again Jackall Squirrels and other similar baits got the results. Pelican point is holding massive numbers of fish still its just a matter of being patient until they bite, a wide variety of baits from, Blades, Deep Crankbaits, spoons and plastics all had there time. 

Moogerah - It’s been a little quiet this past week but it won’t be long and the winter bite will be at its best. The flats amongst the timber is holding plenty of fish it’s just a matter of time before they start to bite. Soft plastics and spoons will be your best option. Ice jigs are another great option on this lake. 

Glenlyon - The time of year is here when the big fish come out to play and we are already seeing what this lake is capable of. It’s been all about shallow swimbaits and topwater. As we go further into winter it’s only going to get better. Finding shallow points or bays with bait is key for finding those active fish. During the day Targeting those other deeper banks with both Spinnerbaits and chatterbaits has also been productive.
