All of the local creeks running into the bay have been fishing well for bream since the rainfall. Heavy rain like we've had recently really moves some food around for these fish and they tend to feed aggressively. Just make sure you are fishing baits with plenty of movement or scent as the discoloured water makes it harder for the fish to locate your offering.
Customer Tony has been smashing the bream down in the Patto recently - with some really nice fish coming out. tony has fished the river the past few weeks
and has landed plenty of solid bream into the mid 40cm size range, with live freshwater yabbies the best bait. The sound the yabbies make underwater
is a dinner bell for the bream, but the key is keeping them alive. Pinning them on the correct hook will keep them kicking until a bream hammers them
- the wrong hook will kill them instantly and render them almost useless!
Customer Nick has been taking his young daughter Chantelle out fishing with him and just this week she landed her first fish. Chantelle caught a lovely
28cm bream using bread and was over the moon when she landed it. Even better she released the bream back into the creek to fight again another day.
