Fishing has certainly been tough as the weather closed in and you had to be really brave, or just very keen, to endure those conditions.

RIPPER: The Clarke family recently stayed with family at Boyne Island. Zachary Clarke, 10, caught this large diamond trevally at the mouth of the Boyne River. Boyne Island is about 30 minutes south of Gladstone.

Still getting reports of good reddies out of both Lake Hume and Blowering. At Lake Hume you need to look a bit for them. I found a good school just off 4CAD on Sunday afternoon on the sounder and managed to nail a few around 500 grams on TT Switchblade Vibes and Squidgie Wrigglers in 10m. 

The fish in Blowering have been far more widespread and sitting anywhere between 6-10m and again vibes and plastics have worked well as has trolling Ac Slim Invaders. Still some good trout on the troll in the upper areas of Blowering.

Les Burns and Pancho had a day to remember on Lake Mulwala. While they were trolling the lake, Pancho managed to hook into a thumping 97cm Murray cod on a Stump Jumper. Still hearing of the odd good fish on surface lures around Bundalong as well.

The snowy lakes are fishing well on the troll and from the bank with a good bunch of worms but the weekend is looking a bit rough with snow down to 700m, so take warm clothes.

Dartmouth Dam is still worth a look, with reports of fish being trolled right throughout the water column on just about any winged lure. Rug up, stay dry and stay safe.
