The local land based fishing has been quite good at the moment, with most bread and butter estuary species on offer. In the Yarra, Maribyrnong, Werribee and Patterson rivers there has been god numbers of mullet to be caught, with the size ranging from 15 - 35cm. Small floats and fine grit berley are the key to success on these species. There has also been some nice bream being caught by both bait and lure anglers. Cutsomer Brendan has been killing some time down in the river fishing small soft plastics in search of a bream or two. Brendan was casting a small lightly weighted Zman grub from the shore and landed a nice chunky bream of 35cm. Brendan was rapt as he had been spending some time targeting the bream with lures and finally broke the duck.
The odd mulloway has also been caught by dedicated anglers fishing for them in the local estuaries. Customer Adrian had some success with a school sized fish caught towards the end of the river on a live mullet. These fish do take a bit of time and patience to work out, but the rewards are there for anglers doing so.
