      1. It was a bit smoky and hot at NPD this morning. The quality of the fish was very good even though the quantity was down.My shoulder is a bit sore with 4 of the bass that I caught going over 1.4 kg, The redclaw are a good size and quantity ok if you know where to set our pots, We knocked off at 11 am when the clouds started to build up with a tally of 27 bass and one yella. Dont know what it takes to make Zac crack his face with a smile. Cheers Ray
      2. Another good day it took us a while to find some fish with only 12 fish on the counter by 10am. We decided to have a look between the 2 islands and found some fish in 26 feet of water to finish up with 52 bass and 2 yellas. On wednesday we moved 2 redclaw pots to a new location and today we ended up with 16 good sizes redclaw in the 2 pots and nothing in the other 2 so we moved them to a new location further down the dam to see how they go. Happy I had a couple of fit deckies when we got back to the ramp as the wind really got up and was blowing across the ramp I would not have had a chance by myself the only way I would have got the boat on the trailer would have been to skulldrag the boat up the ramp and then winch it onto the trailer off the ramp.
      3. Good day at NPD today with Hai,Craig and Miller. Got a bit boring with Miller standing in the bow repeating himself just quietly repeating himself saying I am on. He had a bit of a problem with the bigger bass and yellas having to get Craig to give him a hand supporting the rod. His biggest bass went 49.5 with Craig saying if he had caught it it would have been 50cm. Took us a while to locate a school but it got a bit hectic when we found it with one quadruple hook up and numerous triple hook ups. Going to pull my redclaw pots as we only caught 2 redclaw from 4 pots. I will wait for about 4 inches of rain to bring them on again. I was slack on the counter but but recorded 62 bass and 6 yellas. It was a delight to have Miller on board it bides well for the future generations when you meet a quiet well behaved and polite young man. He is a credit to his mum and dad. Cheers Ray
      4. Day started off slowly with only 13 bass boated between 3 of us by 9.30 until we found a school and finished up with 79 bass and one small yella by 11.30. Shoulder a bit sore ( dont know why) but worth the pain. Had a fair bit of trouble with anything over 40cm. Redclaw still slow with only 15 in pots. 3 of the redclaw heavy in berry so hopefully they will kick in with warmer weather. Cheers Ray
      5. Went to NPD this morning with Gareth and Michael and despite giving it my best we failed to catch a single tandan. Redclaw still scarce but managed a small feed for both Michael and Gareth. Bass and yellas were a pest slamming our live shrimp. 95 bass ( 8 of them were tagged) 8 yellas. Suppose the bycatch made up for the lack of tandans, Cheers Ray

        hi guys is the limit still 2 bass on stocked dams where a sip is needed snap
      7. Took young Dennis out to North Pine for a fish yesterday, but his camera battery was dead before we even started. So for this report, you’ll have to give me all the likes and compliments instead. Don’t worry, I’ll pass them on We checked a few shrimp pots first up, including one that had previously been lost from the float being cut off. The pot was sitting mostly above the water, but amazingly, still had plenty of live shrimp in it. I told @Dinodadog that today would be so good on lures that I bet we don’t even touch the shrimp.... We had our sights set on a few spots where we could cast to the edges. Spinnerbaits worked nicely last trip, so we wanted in on that action again. Most of the water fished was actually very shallow (less than 3m), SUPER clear, and had thick weed beds. The spinnerbaits were basically retrieved just below the surface, and the fish would burst out of the weed to hit them. Caught a few fish trolling along the way, but spent most of the morning getting our spinnerbaits smashed by the chunkiest of winter Bass. Had hoped the yellow fish would also turn up, and watched as Dennis caught one now and then. Finally managed one myself as last fish of the day. As we hit the thrusters and headed back to the ramp, I pointed to the shrimp laden esky..... “Told ya”.... Luke
      8. Pretty good day by myself with 40 odd bass and 3 yellas. Good to see fad no1 still producing fish with 3 yellas and 4 bass. Did not have a chance to have a cuppa or breakfast till 10am as I was too busy pulling in fish Not many redclaw as being by myself I could only pull 4 pots. Had a bit of a problem with the redclaw as mates were either out or were not able to come and pick them up. Ty ended up driving over from Inala at 7pm to collect them Cheers Ray
      9. Went to NPD this morning in less than ideal conditions but Mark and Gerard are sailing to the Philippians on wednesday so this would have been the last chance to fish together for a while. The newly installed fads are starting to produce a few fish. We boated 8 bass including a 48cm bass from the fads opposite the fig tree. Here is a vidio that Tai made. Cheers Ray
      10. Was a bit dispirited last night after prospective deckies pulled the pin late yesterday and was still ringing around at 9pm and unable to get replacements. I decided to go by myself and I was on the way to the dam and got a call from Mark who said are you still going and response was my furcoat. Was a beaut day with glass out most of the morning and fish coming on board in dribs and drabs and ending up with 22 bass and 2 yellas when we knocked off at 11am. Mark caught most of the fish but I was still happy as I did not donut. Cheers Ray
      11. Saw this on FB. Thought I'd share for @Dinodadog and @rayke1938. No pic on the brag mat though. BCF - Boating, Camping, Fishing 4 hrs · Now that’s a Bass!

      12. Hard going at NPD today.With only 24 bass and 2 yellas boated.We found a school of sub 26cm bass at one of the new fads opposite the fig tree and moved on after catching 14 of them,Had a couple of green deckies from japan who had never fished before and they had a blast and both managing to catch an australian bass to skite about when they return to Japan next saturday, Tiger was impressed with the redclaw although he did not want to hold a big one, Redclaw are still prolific averaging at least 10 a pot so Michael ended up with a good feed.
      13. Headed out to Lake Macdonald on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday morning. Perfect weather. I'm pretty new to bass fishing but set up the gopro and put together a short video of some of the fish I caught. Pretty pleased to catch a few that day although none of them were huge.
      14. Tough day yesterday despite good forecast and barometer over 1020.We just could not find a school anywhere. We did not manage more than 2 fish from any one spot and ended up with 22 bass and one yella. Even converted Steve over to bait and still ending up a small tally.
      15. I have been out before with Tom the bass whistler and his dad and yesterday was no exeption . It is a great joy to see how much Tom enjoys life despite his difficulties. The redclaw were very good in some of our pots and probably also were good for the sharefarmer who had raided a few of the pots. Fishwise I thought we were in for a donut with not a scale till around 10.30 when we found some really good sized fish about 2/3 or the way to the far marker in around 30 feet of water. Tom had a real blast with his first fish being 50cm and tagged to boot. He had problems with a lot of the fish that he caught as he was not strong enough so Jason supported the rod whilst he played it. We finished up with 56 bass and a ute load of redclaw. ( Jason did not have anything to put them in so we just tipped them in the tray of his hilux. I am looking forward to next trip with Tom in the next school holidays in September. Cheers Ray
      16. Another good day with the 2 Michaels and Mark.Couple of trophy sized bass and plenty in the high 40s. Mark will have to come again as once again he kept on catching 49 and 49,5 cm bass just cannot reach the elusive 50+ trophy. Final score 120 bass and 2 tandans and a good feed of redclaw for Michael H. The tandans will be redclaw bait for next trip on wednesday 6 tagged bass caught today. Finiahing off a perfect day with a Bruichladdich dram accompanied with oat cakes.
      17. Hard going today unable to locate any fish with just a few scattered bass in different locations until we found a small school on the edge of a drop off in the new area. Jason cracked a 51cm bass and a 41cm yella plus another 39 bass shared between the rest of us. Redclaw down a bit as eels chewed holes on 3 pots. Cheers Ray
      18. Bit better today despite the wind. Michael finally cracked a trophy bass going 53.5 tail and 50 fork 64 bass ,1 yella and first prize to michael who thought he had another good bass but the fairy godmother waved her magic wand and turned it into a forky. Plenty of bass over 40cm and only one under that went 20cm
      19. First spot we tried Rick pulled in 3 fish whilst we watched and that was that we hung around for a while trying to locate them but all in vein. Couple of other likely spots were also bare . We found some at Andrews drop off but they were scarce taking a hour to boat 20 bass so next spot was out in front of the fig tree where we had a hot bite before leaving them biting. Tally for the day was 85 bass and I once again the tandan king Some of the redclaw pots were good and others left us with a warm and fuzzy feeling because the poor starving sharefarmers needed a feed.
      20. Up to 3 decky spots avail this sunday; 6am start meet end of adsetts rd whiteside. Bait fishing with live shrimp and checking redlaw pots. No smoking No bananas kids welcome BYO tucker and esky to take redclaw home. 0403072325 best way to contact. Cheers Ray
      21. 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
      22. 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
      23. 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
      24. 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
      25. 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.
