      1. I was not going to post as it only upsets Dino but decided he needed some encouragement to do his physio and get back on the water. We spent the day teaching the shrimp to swim and escape those ravenous fish that inhabit NPD. We were quite successful as we caught 113 less fish than last Sunday. First fish boated went 55cm much to Jasons delight. and Rick made it a double hookup with a 52 cm yella. We pulled another 3 yellas from this spot and then the shrimp had a reprieve fo rthe rest of the day with the bass being quite elusive with only the odd fish boated. They were a good size and mostly located in around 50 feet of water. We tried around one of the new fads and caught 2 bass one 325cmm and the other 275mm. As normal the redclaw pots were productive except the ones that the redclaw had chewed holes in. Cheers Ray
      2. Fish were everywhere yesterday but only found a school at knock off time . Introduced another new angler to the beauty of NPD Couple of trophys plus few more close to 50cm Left them biting with a total of 150 bass and one yella plus a couple of buckets of redclaw. Cheers Ray
      3. Bit cool and windy this morning but the fishing was hot with 70 bass and 10 yellas at first drop off and other 47 bass at the next spot . Few deer hanging around but they are very flighty so no photos. Smelly bird hanging around our redclaw pots. Cheers Ray
      4. Bass have moved around since Sunday but we found a couple of schools. 84 bass No forkies Redclaw are a good size of the 5 pots that we had forkies in as bait 4 of them had at least 12 redclaw in them The other pot had a big hole and the other 3 pots that had dog biscuits as bait only had a few redclaw in them. Cheers Ray
      5. G'day fellas. I hope i'm not breaking any rules by posting this without being a regular contributor to posts? I regularly enjoy checking out the great fish reports. I have a bit of tackle that doesn't get used much so it's time to move it on to someone that'll make better use of it. Daiwa TDX 4-9kg 6'4'' 1 piece baitcast rod. Fuji K guides. Condition: Excellent. Might have been on the water 3-4 days in total. It was on clearance a couple years back at Tacklewarehouse Camphill for $189. Perfect rod for Cod, Jack, Barra and anything inbetween. They seem to be of a higher quality than the Generation black rods - don't understand why they've been discontinued. Price: $100 Tairyo Nano Speed 6'6'' 1 piece 2-4kg Spinning rod. Fuji SIC guides. Condition: Excellent. Used less than 5 days at Somerset Dam. Bought in 2017 at Sandgate bait&tackle on special for $199. Very lovely rod. Price: $100 I'm happy for anyone to come inspect Located in the Browns Plains area. PH: 0400 675 486. Thanks for viewing.
      6. Just when you want to catch some forkys they have gone . Only caught 5 today ,2 on bait and 3 in one redclaw trap. They are working very well in the redclaw pots compared to the dog biscuits. Probably because they last a lot longer. Ended up with 81 bass 4 yellas,and 5 forkies plus a bucket of redclaw. Would have had a lot more redclaw but they are chewing holes in the pots and escaping. Steve had fun catching bass on a icejig but only managed one on a jackall with the bass not much bigger than the jackall. See Ross and Noel have been busy making more concrete fad bases. Cheers Ray
      7. Second fly rod break in as many outings Caught lots of these In amongst all of these But then I high-sticked an excited one and ended up with these
      8. Had a shower while waiting at the gate, then another around 7 am and a great morning for the rest of the time. Managed 48 bass with one over 50cm and 5 yellas with 2 over 50cm.Most come from along the weed edges on spinnerbaits. Dino
      9. Ran out of bait again at NPD today. 130 bass and 3/4 bucket of forkies and one tilapia, Fish caught in 4 different locations and left them biting the last sounder shot is from when we left. The forkies kept for redclaw bait. Be enough for the next few trips. Cheers Ray
      10. Apart from having to roust a couple of backpackers who had parked in front of the gate we had another good day yesterday with another bass virgin introduced to NPD. Weather was a lot better than forecast with only a couple of light showers and nowhere as much wind. Found around 50 bass on Andrews drop off and tried around the floats with nothing there and found another school over towards the old far marker where we picked up more until we ran out of bait even picking up a few on red dead shrimp that had been sitting in the boat for a few days. We did the redclaw pots first off and when we were heading back to the ramp noticed a couple of pots were too close together wand when re pulled them to redeploy they both had good sized redclaw in them so they are also starting to come in daylight. Final bass tally was 116 bass. Cheers Ray
      11. After attempting for a while we finally got the stars into alignment and I finally took Tom and his dad Jason to NPD. Tom has been obsessed with catching bass for a while and Jason has been taking him shorebased at Forgans with no results. We launched at 12.30 and did a couple of shrimp pots and redclaw pots to show Tom and got some shrimp and a couple of redclaw. I cable tied one redclaw so Tom could have a close look at it without getting bitten. We then headed to Andrews drop off and Tom got a hook up to a smallish bass on the first drop of his bait. He is a real master angler landing another 2 bass before I even had a hook up. It was an hour before Jason got around to rigging up his own line as Tom just did not stop catching fish. It did not even matter if it was only a forky he still got super excited. WE knocked off at around 3pm and did a few more redclaw pots for little result as a lot of the pots had holes in them. Final score was around 20 bass with Tom catching more than half or them. 10 forkies 18 redclaw. Best part smiles all round. So good to see a little boy enjoying himself.

        queensland Crack!!

        As the title of the post states, my bait was slammed so hard my reel went CRACK! And it was over. But luckily despite a few showers we had a great day at NPD today. Always fantastic catching up with Ray and Mark. Thanks for a great day gentleman! 92B9CB9A-4DCA-459E-9140-E04438E0BCDF.MOV
      13. Armed myself with 2 necksocks, pulled one over my head and down to my eyes and the other from my neck up to top of nose, then added my sunglasses. I thought it my scare the fish away, but no they were still keen to see me. Managed 33 bass, one yella and one toga 67cm.Soon as the temp got a bit high I was outer there. Dino
      14. It was a bit windy when we launched but by the time we got into Koala straight it got up to about 15 to 20 knots as the change came through. We decided to do few redclaw pots and see if it would abate. As the rain came the wind commenced to drop a bit so we went to Andrews drop of where we quickly picked up 40 bass but the biggest would have only been 35cm . By the time we arrived at the floats the wind had dropped out completely and more bass were boated. More caught at the old ,old far marker and then into the new area where more caught. 68 bass and one yella and 3 very wet bums final score. Cheers Ray
      15. I knew I had to be home early, as I had to go out for lunch. So I didnt wander to far from the ramp, insead I just had some flats fishing for bass, I was casting willie nillie ( anywhere ) in a large area that was only 6to 8ft in any direction.This was helped along with small clumps of weed here and there and this was what the bass was hiding in. They were not monsters by any means but managed 22 before she who must be obeyed rang and said dont forget we are going out for lunch. Dino
      16. Mark and I went to the western arm for the first time since September last year when the dam was at 100%. Now at 93% and has dropped at least 9 feet. I had some shrimp in the tank at home so we went to Ians island where we caught 10 bass to 40cm and fed the barred grunter until we ran out of bait. We then went and checked the pots that had been sitting since our last visit. 5 of them were high and dry but the other 3 had a fair few shrimp in them plus small redclaw so we just sounded in among the trees and picked up another 12 bass and fed more barred grunter before running out of bait again.. Next week we will have to attack the eastern arm and see if any of the pots there are still in the water . Cheers Ray
      17. Another productive solo day. I was doing ok on Andrews drop off when Graham Round came past and said he got 5 yellas and plenty of good bass on the float. So i headed off and found Colin and his son getting a few yellas so I hit the spot lock and proceeded to get into them. The bass were good quality with the smallest being around 35cm and most in the high 30s and 40+,. Gave a couple of bass and some hints to some newbies so hopefully they will be able to catch their own in future. Cheers Ray
      18. Had a leisurely 7.30 am start after hitting up the local market first. Very pleased that the pelicans have gone from the ramp and the few showers have left the ramp clean enough to et your breakfast off I had a supply of shrimp left after my last trip so I started exploring for some fish first up. First spot was bare but a few 30cm bass at the next spot. So i kept moving as i just wanted to see where the fish were rather than sitting on a school.Some more near Dinos shrimp traps and along in front of the second rockwall before finishing up around Andrews drop off with a total of 35 bass boated,on a mixture of live shrimp . Found a couple of our missing redclaw pots in my travels. Total of 31 legal bass and 5 unders and not one forky. Cheers Ray
      19. Hi all I am planning a trip to toonumbar dam to chase some bass. I have never fished the place. I am wondering how itis fishing a swell as can I use my petrol outboard on the the dam or is it electric only? I also see u can camp near the dam. Can anyone tell me what the campsites are like? Regards Chris
      20. A mate suggested we go for a fish last Sunday, then he had too much jungle juice and bailed. No biggy, thought I'd explore another part of Lake S with the tube. Bush-bashing with 1.5m wide tube on the back is interesting to say the least. Anyway, got through the scrub without a puncture then on to the lake. Second cast snapped my brand new second hand Sage rod in half. So I summoned my inner Rod Harrison and kept at it casting a sinking line with a 4.5 foot rod. (Not easy!!!) Glad I did, a nice 45 plus Bass, one similar size dropped at the tube plus a few more However the bugger spiked my tube so I listed badly most of the morning until I thought I'd better bail:) before i sunk Oh and first tail hooked bass. #givenormanewsagex #50plusbass?
      21. Back to NPD this morning with Steve and Neil the novice. Neil had never been fishing before and it took a while to educate him to not wind the fish to the tip of the rod and lift it into the boat. Fortunately he was only catching tiddlers at first before he got some larger ones. I quite did not catch what he muttered when he dropped a 50cm plus yella at the side of the boat. We knocked off at midday with 58 bass and 2 yellas on the counter and a feed of redclaw for Steve and Neil to share. Cheers Ray
      22. I stood casting into the breeze while watching the brave kayakers struggle passed me on their way across the dam. Would have been sketchy when the wind really got going. Most fish were taken on the edge once again with light lures zipped across the tops of the weed. I'll tell you that the kayakers are making the fish a bit lure shy. Still plenty still in there though if you get creative with lure choices. I did have one kayaker come over when he saw me fighting a fish and cast right near me, like there's a lack of places to cast in there. What a dingus !
      23. Mediocre day today 22 bass and numerous forkies plus left camera at home so no photos so it did not happen, First spot looked good on the sounder and after a triple forkie hook up we moved on. Ended up on the floats and at least we were getting the occasional bass on a 3 to one ratio ( 3 forkies 1 Bass) Percy gorged himself downing at least 12 forkies So we went exploring and no more forkies but also no bass. In the meantime Andrew and his mateds tied up to the floats and 35 bass and no forkies . When they moved off we took over the spot and landed more bass and no forkies. Cheers Ray
      24. Went along by myself this morning to assist in the release of 20k bass and 20k yella fingerlings . Jim and Des who had came along to have a look ended up on board to assist me and when I asked them if they wanted to have a look around the dam and maybe catch a fish or too they said yes. First spot we tried there was nothing there so we ended up on the floats where we caught 30 bass and one yella in the 90 minutes we were there. Jim was chuffed when he caught a tagged bass. We checked the redclaw pots on the way back and Jim and Des scored a bucket of redclaw to take home.
      25. Internet been down, still not fixed properly, have to wait until tuesday.Went to NPD tuesday for 41 bass and some forkies plus the biggest eel I have ever caught, it was bigger than a lungfish, no way was it getting in my boat so I cut the line. Back again yesterday for 41 bass some forkies and one yella. I would stick with the lures as long as I could to get half a dozen then onto the bait to finish up with. Dino
