    Cooby Dam:  A little bit patchy at Cooby this week.  Most catches been in various water depth and areas of the dam.  Use your sounder to locate the old creek bed in the northern leg of the dam and try fishing with blades and bait.  The weed bed straight out from the boat ramp and the point across from the sailing club is producing some fish.  Bank fishing the pontoon area with worms and saltwater yabbies is also producing some yellowbelly.  Blades and spinner baits taking some fish. Saltwater yabbies and shrimp the baits of choice.

    Leslie Dam: Bait fishing at Leslie seems to be the way to go at the moment.  The back end of the dam seems to be producing the most fish   

    Cressbrook: Some good fish starting to show up at Cressbrook again this week.  Trolling with deep diving hard bodied lures is in the main area out from the boat ramp is producing some fish. Using IceJigs and Jackall TN60 is producing some fish around the buoy line and Deer Island.  Some good bass at the point across from the rock wall in the Cressbrook creek leg of the dam. Try fishing any points and drop-offs with blades and shrimp.  Some good numbers of redclaw being caught in four to six meters of water

    Somerset: Pelican point and the southern side of the spit along the western bank is producing some good bass. The timbered area at Kirkleagh for bass and yellowbelly.  Jackall Mask Vibes and ice jigs have been working ok.  Good numbers of redclaw showing up at Kirkleagh.

    Lure of the week:  Jaz Syclon70is a lipless vibe 70mm in length weighs 14gm and has a good colour range. It has a good rattle and a nice tight action. Slow sinking and stands up on its nose when at rest on the bottom. Ideal for Yellowbelly, Bass, Cod and other species.
