Fishing Report 19/6/2018

LESLIE DAM: Things were fairly quiet over the weekend, mainly due to the weather conditions.  We received reports from local anglers of some good numbers of Golden Perch being landed in the deeper water in the main basin.  Blades continue to be the most successful lure, with Atomic Semi Harz also accounting for some nice fish.  Anglers fishing along the bank experienced mixed results, with a few going home empty handed.  Anglers trolling diving hard body lures landed the odd Golden Perch towards the back of the dam.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly was a little slow over the weekend, with only a couple of reports of legal sized Golden Perch being landed.  A Toowoomba angler landed two legal sized Golden Perch on a Whiptail Piglet.  We received a couple of reports of a few Silver Perch and Catfish landed along the bank on worms.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: Anglers fishing the Condamine River upstream of Scots Weir landed a few smaller Golden Perch on bait.  Anglers also reported on several big carp being removed from the river below the Bacon Factory on corn.  We also received reports of the odd Golden Perch and a few Catfsh being landed on worms in the Cullendore/Murrays Bridge area.


Taylor Made Lures: Rattling Reptile

*The NEW Taylor Made Rattling Reptile has finally been unleashed!! Stock is available NOW!

Rob's NEW Surface Wake Bait has a great swimming action with a rattling clicking sound!
The Rattling Reptile is a 200mm (40gm), 4 Piece Surface Wakebait that is setting a new standard in both freshwater cod fishing and saltwater mulloway circles.

Made by Rob Taylor, this lure is light enough to cast on conventional Baitcast or Spin Outfits. Originally created in timber, Rob chose to manufacture the final product using an injection moulding process that adds a rattling clicking sound (as the segments brush against each other) to enhance the Reptile's great swimming action.


Length: 200mm
Weight: 40 grams

Fishing Report 5/6/2018

LESLIE DAM: Leslie is definitely worth a look as several anglers have reported on some nice Golden Perch on the move, particularly in the earlier part of the week.  Anglers landed some reasonable numbers of smaller fish on bait in the latter part of the previous week and into the weekend.  We received reports of a few larger Golden Perch on the move, with reports of some measuring in excess of 40cm in length.  Shrimps and saltwater yabbies have been the most successful forms of bait.  Darker coloured blades and soft vibes continue to work for the lure anglers, with good number of fish being landed in the deeper water.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River is in desperate need of a fresh as the weed in very heavy in places.  Anglers reported on the odd Golden Perch being landed in the town area.  Anglers fishing on the eastern side of town reported on a few Golden Perch being landed on spinnerbaits.  Anglers to the west of Warwick, around the Pratten/Victoria Hill areas and downstream, reported on the odd fish being landed.  A Clifton angler reported on a 72cm Murray Cod landed on Sunday night on a surface lure in the Ellangowan area.

COOLMUNDA DAM: Anglers reported a few nice fish being landed at Coolmunda over the past week.  Most Golden Perch fell to bait in approximately 8 to 12 foot of water.  There were two reports of Murray Cod being landed, with both fish close to the 70cm mark.  These fish were landed on spinnerbaits.
