Lure of the week: Berkley Snap Jigs
The Berkley Snap Jig is a versatile action jig head that pairs with your favorite soft plastics. The Snap Jig can be fished both vertically over structure and for suspended fish in open water and ice, or cast and retrieve for side to side and backward and forward dynamic darting action.
Cooby is still fishing reasonably well, trolling seems to be the pick of the methods, trolling your close to the weed bed on the low light periods has worked wonders. The northern arm is holding great numbers of fish that are wiling to eat a bait or lure. During the day jigging Zx Blades in the deeper water towards the rock wall is a good starting point.
Good signs for Cressbrook this week, with a few local anglers catching some massive bass, Spoons and blades have accounted for fish once again, main lake points in the basin is where most fish have schooled up in this hotter weather.
Quantitly and Quality of Big Bass this past week, Somerset is an unreal fishery at the moment, casting metal spoons is by far the pick of the techniques that the fish are reacting well too. Red rock, Bay 13 and the Kirkliegh flats are holding massive numbers of big fish, the late afternoon bite has been the pick of the times.
A great week on the water at Boondooma, with this hot weather moving in the fish have been on the move and willing to eat a lure, heavily weighted soft plastics and blades has seen most of the action, pelican point, barbers pole and the junction is holding great numbers, marking fish and having a few different locations up your sleeve when the fish are getting a lot of pressure can be a great thing to have on your side.
With water at a consistent level the fish have really switched it on, with great reports of both cod and yellow belly on the bite, jigging soft vibes or metal blades is good method for catching a few fish, the trolling anglers have had some great success with Bassman Spinnerbaits, trolling these tight to he creek bed has been working very well. For the bait anglers salt water yabbies is proving to be dynamite.
Some great snapper fishing to be had on the 36 and 54 fathom reefs are still holding great numbers, Slow Blatt Metal jigs and Gulp Plastics have accounted for some great fish, the by catch of Trag Jew, Cobia and mac tuna have also been on the bite, The Mackeral and dolphin fish have started to move in with trolling being the best method for these fish.
