With another lashing of rain around the suburbs, the bream have kicked up a gear in the local rivers and estuaries. The freshwater influx has brought more food to the fish and given them a bit more cover from predators so they're happy to eat. All of the metro systems are producing fish, with the Yarra, Maribyrnong ad Patto going well. Customer Robin fished the heart of the city itself and tricked a couple of fish using plastics. Robin was fishing a light 3lb setup with small curl tail and worm plastics smothered in 's-factor' scent. Robin also said that there was still lots of fresh pushing down and the bites from the fish were very subtle.
Customer Tony had another session down at Patto for some nice bream. Tony found that the fish were hitting hard in the dirty water, with the run out tide producing all the bites. The most effective baits for Tony were small live freshwater yabbies and shucked mussel.
Once the water clears up again the bream should really fire up, with some areas around the metro systems holding bream like this. These fish weren't super
responsive but can still be caught using a bit of finesse.
