The bream fishing has been good around Melbourne over the last week as the water temperature has cooled off slightly with the weather we've had. While many anglers go about their bream fishing on a day to day basis, now is almost the perfect time to be out chasing them. The fish are still super active as there is an abundance of food items, but the water in the shallows isn't too hot making them lethargic.
Customer Aaron and partner Borom caught and released some bream just recently. They used a mixture of offerings with small freshwater yabbies on 'C10U'
hooks working well, along with lightly weighted Zman grubs.
Customer Jordan fished with mates in the Patto over the weekend where they landed some nice bream. The guys caught 5 nice fish with most between 32 - 40cm.
A finesse rig with ultra light running sinker and light leader brought the fish undone, with the humble scrubworm being the bait of choice.
Customer Ryan has also been catching some nice bream around the metro rivers. Ryan has been sticking with a simple approach, fishing landbased around the
Yarra and Maribyrnong rivers and using only lures. Small single tail grubs have been the most effective when fished on jigheads up to 1/12th in weight.
Natural coloured plastics smeared in bloodworm scent have been getting eaten by most fish especially when fished around pontoons, bridges and litter
traps that line the metro rivers.
