LESLIE DAM: There was some quality Golden Perch landed at Leslie Dam over the weekend. Anglers trolling hard lures had a little more success than previous weeks. These fish weren’t quite as deep as they have been. Anglers trolling the eastern bank, from the Washpool to the boat ramps, landed some nice fish. There was only a few Golden Perch landed on live and frozen bait. We received reports of a fish being landed at Cod Alley, up near the Black Boys and near the Ski Club.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly Dam anglers reported on things remaining much the same as previous weeks. There were a few legal sized Golden Perch landed, with bait being the most successful. Numbers weren’t great but the fish landed were quality fish.

COOLMUNDA DAM: Anglers have reported on some quality Golden Perch being landed at Coolmunda Dam over the weekend. Some anglers had more success than others, with spinnerbaits and TN60 Jackalls proving to be the most successful. Shrimps and saltwater yabbies accounted for some nice fish in the southern end of the dam.

MOOGERAH DAM / MAROON DAM: There was some good quality Bass landed in the main basin over the weekend. There were a few fish landed on shrimps in the timber, with some quality fish landed on OSP Soft Plastics and Jackall Genes.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River continues to fish quite well, with reports of several legal sized Murray Cod landed. These fish measured in excess of 70cm, with the majority of them falling to spinnerbaits. The most successful spots were Killarney, Murrays Bridge, Canningvale, Pratten and several spots in the town area.


Hot Bite Tail Spinners – JETS

Bass fishermen will have noted the rebirth of the tail-spinner over the past 6 months. These lures were used with great success on the early bass tournament scene but over the years their popularity dwindled. The introduction of fancy looking Japanese models along with their effectiveness has excited anglers enough to start filling their tackle trays with them again. They are working so well it is as if the fish have never seen them before.

The lure is the perfect size to get the bass excited and has great hook exposure to give better hook ups when the fish nail it. They come with blades selected to give the best frequency of vibration and work at speeds slower than soft plastics. All are made locally using components purchased from Australian businesses and they have quality trebles.
