    19 January at 09:51 from atlas

    Cooby Dam: Reports of some good numbers of yellowbelly having been caught this week.  Schools are moving around making them hard to find.  Dark coloured blades & spinnerbait taking quite a few fish in 5 to 7 meters of water.  The back end of the northern leg is still producing some good fish. Bait fishing from the bank in the late afternoon with saltwater yabbies and shrimp is producing good yellowbelly and jewfish.

    Cressbrook: It has taken a long time but Cressy is starting to Fire Up!  Deep diving Smak lures and blades have been working ok this week. Bulls creek leg and along the buoy line is producing some good size fish.  Reports of some good yellowbelly caught at the back end of Cressbrook creek leg of the dam.  Rockmelon as bait is producing some good size Redclaw.

    Somerset: The timbered area at Kirkleagh is still producing good yellowbelly and bass using Shrimp and blades.  Queen Street and Pelican point for bass this week.  Good numbers of Redclaw.

    Leslie Dam:  Hard bodied lures and bait at the rocky area of the dam wall is producing some good fish. The blackboy area is also producing some yellowbelly and some silver perch. Saltwater yabbies and shrimp the bait to use.

    Boondooma Dam: Quality numbers of big bass and some nice size yellowbelly in 60cm size on hard body lures and spinnerbaits. Quite a few bass in the 10cm mark been caught showing that the dam is quite healthy at the moment.  Red claw in good numbers with some up to 30cm in length
