The local estuaries are running quite clear at the moment and the bream fishing has been a little bit quiet, but as always the rewards are there for the
anglers with a bait or lure in the water. Speaking of lures, customer Ange has really nutted out some of the local creek fish, with chunky bream to
42cm taking small shrimp imitation soft plastics. Ange has found that for these lures to work effectively they must be rigged almost unweighted and
left to sink as natural as possible along any likely looking structure.
Over the next few weeks we should find the bream activity to increase if we get some decent rain, as the influx of freshwater will flush more food into
the systems and give the fish some cover from predators. The Patterson and Yarra rivers will fire up if this event occurs, and it may even bring some
school mulloway into these systems.
