The bream fishing has been good around the place! There have been some nice fish being caught both locally and also down the road in Gippsland. Locally the Patto has been fishing well for larger fish as they school up in the main river. Staff member Dylan has been sounding lots of fish around the small drop offs and sand holes in the river, with some clearly visible in the clear water!
Down the road the hot spots down in the Gippsland Lakes seem to be the Mitchell River and Lake Tyers at the moment. The Mitchell has been producing some some very large fish to 45cm as they come off the back of their spawning run, with the 'cliffs' area holding a few.
Sandworm, crab and prawn are all good baits but the bigger fish have been responding to crab and live freshwater yabbies - just be sure to rig both of
these baits on the correct hooks, fine gauge 'caddis' and drop shot patterns! Young Sam caught some nice fish up to 42cm fishing from the bank of Lake
Tyers past Lakes Entrance. Sam was using fresh sandworm and fishing from the shore from the Mill Point area.
Customer Jake has also been catching a few fish both locally and from the creeks out to the East. Fishing small paddle tailed plastics has gotten some
nice fish over the past week for Jake, with colours like pink and pumpkinseed getting bites. Just be sure to fish these, or any plastic on the correct
weight jighead. Most people will opt the heavier option, but a lot of the time this causes the plastic to sink at an unnatural speed and may cause
it to spin - and many of the bigger, smarter fish won't fall for it!
