The hot trout fishing has continued this week with Eildon pondage still producing plenty of fish for dedicated anglers. The coarse-method bait fishing using a fine grit berley and dough style baits has accounted for most of the catch at the moment, with the odd fish caught on a lure in between bait hook ups. Customer Zoran has again been catching good numbers of trout using these techniques, and says that there is no 'hot spot' - rather that a correct berley mixture and persistence will create your own 'hot spot'.
Customer Jenice fished the pondage a few weeks ago and her father came in store to stock up and try his luck. After the correct berley and bait tactics
were discussed he went back and caught trout like this lovely brown using the same methods.
A bit closer to home, customer Jim sent us a report from Devilbend Reservoir where he caught this thumping brown trout recently. Jim fishes the area fairly
regularly and after seeing his dad Mark's fish in last week's report it prompted him to send this report in. Jim does a bit of lure fishing at Devilbend
and this fish was caught on the humble 'tassie devil' in you guessed it...pink!
