Article excerpt


OARGEE lures are one of the most popular hardbodies around and they are made here in Australia.

THE yellowbelly have still been on the bite quite well at Cooby just out from the rock wall and up near the buoy line.

I located a lot a fish sitting high in the water column at about 3m in the morning, possibly getting into the warmer water areas.

Yellowbelly around the 40cm mark were quite active, biting well on jackalls and shallower diving hardbodies so anything, in around that 3m mark.

Later in the day, the fish move a little deeper, sitting on the bottom around 30ft, and jigging blades or using live shrimp and saltwater yabbies works best.


A GREAT thing for the local area is some good activity at Cressbrook with plenty of nice bass hitting the decks over the past couple of weeks.

Fish schooling up in between the boat ramp and the camping area jigging blades and soft plastics around the schooled bass on the 9m flats has proven successful.
