Fishing Report 29/5/2018

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam continues to fish reasonably well, with reports of some good numbers of Golden Perch being landed during the past week.  Anglers fishing with frozen shrimps landed some solid Golden Perch in the main basin, with late afternoon proving to be the most successful time.  We also received reports of Golden Perch being landed on blades, soft vibes and trolled hard body lures.  We received reports of a few smaller Murray Cod on the move.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly remains consistent, with anglers reporting on small numbers being landed along the bank on bait.  Anglers reports that worms accounted for a few Silver Perch over the past week.  We also received a report of a nice 64cm Murray Cod being landed mid week by a Pittsworth angler.  This fish was landed from the bank on a Southern Cross Top Ass.
RIVERS AND CREEKS: Anglers fishing the Condamine River experienced mixed results, with the town area fishing a little better.  There were a few more Golden Perch landed than previous weeks.  Smaller diving hard body lures and spinnerbaits accounted for a few Golden Perch between Scots Weir and the Mill Hole.  Anglers fishing from their kayaks in the Cullendore area also managed to land the odd legal sized Golden Perch, with spinnerbaits proving to be the lure of choice.  The western side of Warwick remains a little slow, with reports of only a few fish being landed around the Pratten area.


Live Target Mouse

The LiveTarget Hollow Body Field Mouse is the perfect treat for Cod stalking in heavy cover, waiting to ambush their quarry. This weedless tool is most effective when skirted across the tops of pads and grass mats; however it also has an incredible side-to-side walk-the-dog action when used in open runs. The intricate life-like details make this rodent so realistic you’ll swear it is alive. The rat is back, the new LiveTarget Hollow Body Field Mouse.

Fishing Report 22/5/2018

LESLIE DAM: Anglers at Leslie Dam landed some nice Golden Perch over the past week, with a few more being landed on lures.  Anglers fishing mid morning landed some quality fish on blades.  Dark colours seem to be working the best at present.  Anglers trolling hard body lures in the more narrow part of the dam are picking up a few Golden Perch as well as the odd small Murray Cod.  Anglers fishing along the bank reported on some smaller Golden Perch and a few legal sized Silver Perch being landed.  Catfish numbers are down on previous weeks.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River is fishing well in some spots, however the weed in the town area is quite thick in places causing things to be a little slow.  We received reports of some nice Golden Perch being landed on smaller hard body lures in and around Killarney, as well as in the Murray Bridge area.  Anglers fishing in the Wheatvale and Pratten areas also reported on the odd fish being landed.  We had reports of a few more smaller Murray Cod on the move.  This is mainly due to the cooler mornings.

MAROON DAM: Anglers at Maroon Dam are landing some solid Bass with good numbers being landed on lures.  Jackall Squirrells seem to be working the best for the lure anglers fishing the weed edges.

Fishing Report 15/5/2018

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam saw a few more Golden Perch on the move over the weekend than in previous weeks.  Anglers reported on some nice Golden Perch being landed on blades in the main basin in approximately 15-20 foot of water.  There were also some nice fish landed on trolled TN60 Jackalls, with “Brown Dog Gill” being the most successful colour.  Shrimps continue to produce some reasonable fish from both the bank and the boat.  Anglers commented on not as many Catfish being landed as previous week.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River has been a little hit and miss, with some anglers having more luck than others.  We received reports of a few better Cod on the move on the western side of town, with fish landed measuring up to 85cm in length.  Mumblers landed a couple of legal sized Golden Perch in the Scots Weir area.  Anglers fishing in the Cullendore/Murrays Bridge area had success landing some nice Golden Perch on spinnerbaits.

MOOGERAH DAM: Moogerah Dam is definitely worth a look, with local anglers landing some solid fish.  We received reports of some quality Golden Perch on the move over the weekend on both bait and lures.  Blades, mask vibes and tail spinners fished close to the bottom also accounted for some nice Bass in various spots around the dam.


Predatek Jabberwok

Calling big Murray Cod
Jabberwok has been designed to appeal to big Murray Cod, but field testing has proved that plenty of feisty cod in smaller waters will attack it. It's a surface-paddler with a dynamic, splashing action and a variety of sound effects.

Interchangeable bibs
Want two lures virtually for the price of one? Jabberwok delivers. You get both a black and a clear enduroShok bib in the box with each Jabberwok. The bibs are interchangeable without the use of tools if you choose not to fasten the bib to the Jabberwok with a split-ring. Head over to the Project Jabberwok page (www.predatek.com/jabberwok) for a full explanation.

Quick off the mark & low stall speed
You'll appreciate Jabberwok's ability to quickly get into it’s Australian Crawl mode when you start winding it in. You'll also appreciate how slow you can retrieve it without it stalling.

In addition to the tow-point on Jabberwok's head, there are four other wire eyelets for attaching hardware...or whatever your imagination comes up with.

Bristling with heavy & symmetrical hardware
Out-of-the-box, Jabberwok runs three 2/0 VMC trebles, but you can run it with two...or four if you're a glutton for punishment! It’s not advised.

Because of the smart, horizontal orientation of the wire eyelets, the hooks hang symmetrically.  It's better than the traditional, asymmetrical way that treble hooks hang on the vast majority of hard-bodied lures.

Jabberwok makes burbling noises thanks to the lobes at the tips of the paddling blades. It also has internal rattles to complement the jangling of its hardware. Fishing in the dark, your ears will tell you where Jabberwok is and how it's working.

Swing blade
Out-of-the-box, Jabberwok also comes with a hammer-finished swing blade attached to the belly eyelet. This gives off its own clicking sound as well as adding flash.

Fishing Report 8/5/2018

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam remains consistent on last week, with some solid Golden Perch being landed over the past week and into the weekend.  The windy conditions made it a little difficult at times, particularly for anglers fishing from boats.  We received several reports of fish being landed along the bank between the Washpool and the wall end of the dam, with bait anglers seeing the best results.  Blades, mask vibes and semi hardz were all successful in the deeper water.  Anglers trolling hard body lures also managed to land some nice fish.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly Dam was a little slower than previous weeks, with not many legal sized fish landed.  Anglers reported on the odd Silver and Golden Perch being landed from the bank on bait.  Smaller hard body lures also accounted for a few Golden Perch along the edge.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River hasn’t seen much change over the past week.  Anglers are reporting on a few smaller Murray Cod on the move, particularly on the western side of town.  Anglers fishing in the town area are landing a few smaller Golden Perch on bait.  Spinnerbaits are working the best for the lure anglers.  We also received a few reports of some big Carp being landed on corn.

MOOGERAH DAM: Moogerah was extremely busy of the long weekend.  Anglers saw the best results in the mornings, with reports of Bass being landing on both lures and bait.  The majority of the fish were landed in or close to the timber.



Shimano Tranx 300
The Shimano Tranx is the next level in saltwater proofed baitcast reels. Featuring the coreprotect concept, meaning the Tranx range has greatly improved water resistance whilst maintaining a “free” feel when winding. Ideally suited to most baitcasting applications like soft-baiting, light-jigging and casting small and medium sized Shimano stick-baits. The Shimano Tranx baitcaster reels are not only ergonomic in the hand, packed with more than enough drag, durable and strongly built but are also setting the bar in water resistance.

Fishing Report 1/5/2018

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam continues to fish reasonably well, with anglers fishing along the bank having more success than from boats.  We have received several reports from anglers fishing between the Washpool and the boat ramps of some good fish being landed.  Anglers reported on several Golden Perch being landed around the 35cm mark.  Anglers trolling mid week landed a few smaller Murray Cod on yellow and black hard body lures.  ZX40 Blades continue to be the most successful in the deeper water.  There are also still plenty of Catfish on the move.
CONNOLLY DAM: Anglers at Connolly Dam landed some solid Golden Perch over the weekend, with bait having a little more success than lures.  Worms and saltwater yabbies accounted for some legal sized Golden Perch along the eastern bank.  There were some nice Golden Perch landed by kayak anglers when trolling spinnerbaits in the deeper water across from the wall.
RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River was a little slower in the town area this week, with not too many reports.  We received a report from a local angler of a few undersize Golden Perch being landed upstream of the Madson Bridge on bait.  There was also a report of a 56cm Murray Cod caught and released in the Mill Hole on a Whiptail Boar.  Anglers in the Pratten area have reported on only the odd fish being landed.
