Product of The Week - Barambah Baby Bidjiwong

The Barambah Baby Bidjiwong is a unique hybrid lizard creature bait. It has a great paddler bib that puts out a lot of noise and splash. The joint and large rattle in the rear segment also add to its sonic attraction. The Baby Bidjiwong has a TPE tail to improve its natural appearance and add profile. The tail can be easily changed if damaged. At 21g (3/4 Oz), it is easy to cast, and the action works well at a wide variety of speeds. Fitted with quality hooks and rings that give maximum hook exposure without fouling. The Baby Bidjiwong has a great action and is built tough for a wide range of target topwater species.

Fishing Our Region

Cooby Dam - Cooby has bounced back quite well after the recent rain, this week we have seen the majority of the fish caught quite deep. Trolling has been very effective, lures like the Halco Poltergeist, Little Rippers and Cooby Cobbas have all caught their fair share, darker colours being the pick.As for other anglers, Live shrimp and saltwater yabbies both proved very dominant. Jigging zx blades and soft vibes tight to structure and the bottom has also worked well. The deeper sections in the northern arm is still holding good numbers of fish and also the hump just off the dam wall is showing good signs.

Cressbrook - After the rain there still has been good numbers of fish off the edge during the low light periods, as for targeting the schooled fish, working the larger points in the main basin and the Cressbrook Creek arm ( The Left Arm ) . plastics and metal blades proving to be the best, while jigging TT Switchprawns has got plenty of attention from the Yellow Belly.

Somerset - Somerset couldn't have timed it any better with school holidays right around the corner, with the fish biting very well. Bay 13 is holding massive numbers of fish in around that 20 too 25ft mark, Hot Bite Spectre, plastics like the ever faithful slider grub continue to prove the best options, while spoons are still getting good reactions as well.

Wivenhoe - Like most of the bass lakes the bass have been on the bite. schooling bass in the creek bed have been keen on spoons and spectre vibes in around 30ft of water. trolling deep diving hard bodies like poltergeist XXD has worked really well also.

Monduran - Still the talk of south east Queensland. Mondy its fishing really well the barra are all schooled up in the main basin looking to escape over the wall. the thermocline is well and truly set in now and most fish are in around that 18ft mark. Trolling soft plastics and deep diving hard bodies has by far been the most successful. casting has still been productive just keeping you lure in the strike zone as long as possible is key. Molix 140 soft plastics have been ideal as they are heavy and stay down in the strike zone. Tricky part right now is because the fish are so congregated and lots of anglers are visiting it can be very crowded in the main basin are be carfule at night and keep a safe distance from other anglers.

McIntyre River - The river fishing around goondiwindi and the borders has been very good and with Cod Season back in full swing there is now better time to go and chase some Cod and yellowbelly in the rivers. Spinnerbaits and stump jumpers have worked well during the day and then surface lures like Pompadours have cleaned up some good cod in the late afternoons and early mornings.
