A lot of the estuaries out in Gippsland have been fishing well for species like bream and flathead, and they should continue throughout winter. Recently the eastern section of the state has received a fair bit of rainfall, and most of the smaller systems are in semi-flood mode, with dirty water. These systems will still fish well, as the fish will concentrate themselves towards saltier water. Finding these pockets can be time consuming and frustrating but worth it in the end.
Customers Dave and Marcos fished the estuary system of Mallacoota over the weekend in search of a few bream on lures. The boys were confronted by slightly discoloured, cold water but that didn't stop them catching fish. The hot technique for the trip was to fish vibes along the contour lines and drop offs, and in doing so they landed some nice black bream to 41cm, and yellowfin bream to 37cm.
