The heavy rain that Melbourne experienced may have put fishing off the cards for a few days but it has breathed some life into the bay and it's estuaries.
Bream, mullet and mulloway have responded well to the flush out the local systems have received. Staff member Dylan took advantage of the clearing
water during the week and had an afternoon session chasing the bream on lures. After a slow start, about a dozen bream made their way into the net,
with a variety of lures doing the damage. Some new hybrid wakebaits caught their fair share of fish along with soft plastics.
Dylan trialed the new 'biotough' squidgy soft plastic range and it is safe to say that they will be as deadly as the time tested standard range. A handful
of nice fish scoffed the new biotough wriggler in UV bloodworm, including this 1.5kg plus model. Pop into the shop to check them out - they are a winner!
Customer Tony Conversano has also experienced some good local bream fishing during the week. Tony has been mixing up his baits to see what the fish are
interested in at the time with prawn, mussel and freshwater yabbies all doing their bit. With dirty water conditions a light berley trail of 'snapper
magnet' has helped dramatically, which consists of a prawn and mussel shell based scent.
The mulloway population have made their presence known after the rain also, with the Yarra and Maribyrnong rivers producing some nice fish. Customer Jovan
has caught fish to around 7kg using live mullet (and patience) after dark in the metro rivers.
