Fishing Report 27/11/2017

LESLIE DAM: Anglers at Leslie Dam continue to land some reasonable numbers of Golden Perch.  Anglers trolling hard body lures in the main basin had more success than previous weeks, with several anglers reporting on quality fish being landed.  There were a couple of legal sized Murray Cod amongst these fish.  Anglers continue to land Golden Perch on blades in the deeper water.  Shrimps, saltwater yabbies and worms all worked well for the bait anglers. 

CONNOLLY DAM: Anglers at Connolly Dam are landing a few better Golden Perch than previous weeks, with shrimps and worms working well when fished from the bank.  Spinnerbaits and Southern Cross Jackass’ proved to be successful for the lure anglers, with an angler from Clifton going home with three legal sized Golden Perch on Sunday afternoon.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River remains a little steady in the town area.  Anglers fishing between Killarney and Warwick are seeing the best results, with Silent Jackalls working the best for the lure anglers.  Kayak anglers reported on the odd Golden Perch being landed upstream of Scots Weir.  We received reports of some big Carp being landed in the Condamine River around the Pratten area.

MOOGERAH DAM: Anglers at Moogerah landed some nice Bass midweek, with the best results coming from trolled hard body lures in the timber.  Shrimps also accounted for some solid Golden Perch in the deeper water just off the wall.


MinnKota Endura 30

If the Endura™ name looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen it on thousands of transoms over the years. The most popular trolling motor on the water is built to explore and built to last. Day after day, year after year – like no other.

Features include:

  • Lever Lock Bracket
A reliable motor requires a strong foundation. Endura’s 10-position bracket features a quick-release lever lock and reinforced composite material that resists flexing, warping and UV damage.

  • Battery Meter
Endura C2 keeps you on the water longer. And if you want to know exactly how much longer you’ve got, use this convenient battery gauge.

  • Telescoping Handle
The ergonomic, 15-centimeter telescoping handle on Endura C2’s tiller provides comfortable, convenient steering.

  • Indestructible Composite Shaft
Guaranteed for Life.

If we could offer a longer guarantee than “lifetime,” we would. Our ultra-high-yield composite shafts are pound for pound stronger than stainless steel, virtually indestructible and can flex on impact before returning to their original position. They won’t kink, break, rust or corrode. We guarantee it.

  • Cool, Quiet Power
Every Minn Kota Gives You the Drop on Fish.

Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, which extends battery power and motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.

Fishing Report 21/11/17

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam saw some good numbers of Golden Perch, when the weather permitted.  Bait anglers are having more success than anglers fishing with lures.  Most Golden Perch are being landed in 20 to 25 feet of water in the main basin.  ZX40 blades continue to be the lure of choice.  Anglers reported on a few smaller Murray Cod on the move, with a Clifton angler landing a 68cm midweek on a saltwater yabby.

CONNOLLY DAM: Anglers at Connolly Dam landed some quality Silver Perch over the past week, with worms working very well.  Anglers reported on a few smaller Golden Perch being landed mainly on spinnerbaits and beatlespins along the edges.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River saw a few more fish on the move in the town area than previous weeks, with reports of fish being landed on both bait and lures.  Anglers fishing in the Killarney and Pratten areas also had some success.

COOLMUNDA DAM: Coolmunda Dam continues to fish well, with some solid Murray Cod being landed during the week.  Some of these fish measured close to the 1 metre mark and were landed on spinnerbaits and plastics.  Anglers reported on some good numbers of Golden Perch being landed on both bait and lures.


Congratulations to Cody Haynes on winning the Tackle Tactics Wilson River Rumble in the first round of the Berkley B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Series 5 by 670 grams.  This is Cody’s first title as a pro angler and is looking for AOY glory. 

The Tackle Tactics Wilson River Rumble was setup to test angler’s ability outside of the standard freshwater lake systems through NSW and Qld.  Cody used a crankbait for the majority of the weekend to land good numbers of quality bass at one of his favourite spots. His win puts him into the number one position, and he has already started looking further ahead and wants to claim his first AOY pro title.

We would like to thank Cody on his continued support and wish him every success in his future as a leader in the sport of fishing.

Fishing Report 13/11/2017

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam is fishing reasonably well at the moment, with some good numbers of Golden Perch being landed during the week and over the weekend.  Most Golden Perch are holding close to the bottom so sinking lures are having the most success.  Blades, mask vibes and Atomic Semi Hardz continue to land some nice fish.  Shrimps are working the best for the bait anglers in various spots around the dam.  Anglers are commenting on plenty of big Catfish being landed on bait.

MAROON DAM: Anglers at Maroon landed a few Bass on Saturday afternoon, with smaller hardy body lures working well when fished over the weed.  Plastics in the deeper water also accounted for a few nice fish.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River didn’t see too many legal sized fish landed over the past week.  Anglers fishing on the eastern side of town are seeing the best results.  Silent Jackalls accounted for a few Golden Perch in the Killarney area.  We also received some reports of fish being landed in the Mill Hole and upstream of the OO Madsen bridge.

COOLMUNDA DAM: Coolmunda is fishing well, with several legal sized Murray Cod landed during the past week.  Some of these fish measured in excess of 90cm.  Golden Perch were quite active, with some good numbers being landed mainly on ZX Blades.

LESLIE DAM: Anglers at Leslie Dam had success mainly in the latter part of the weekend, with Sunday fishing the best.  We received a few reports of some large Silver Perch being landed on Saturday afternoon on bait.  These fish were landed in the deeper water, just out from the wall.  Anglers fishing shrimps and saltwater yabbies landed some good numbers of Golden Perch between the Washpool and the concrete boat ramps.  The lure anglers picked up a few nice Golden perch while trolling hard body lures, with blades continuing the land the fish close to the bottom.
