The Gippsland lakes are still fishing well for anglers targeting bream, flathead and luderick. Many bait anglers are doing well on all 3 species, with the odd tailor or trevally thrown in. The Tambo and Nicholson Rivers are producing bream to 40cm on baits of shrimp and sandworm around the boat ramp areas of both rivers. Further down towards Lakes Entrance there have been a few more silver trevally mixed in with the bream and luderick, and they are responding to baits of prawn and sandworm. 

Customer Lucas had a good session on the luderick from the jetties around Lakes Entrance recently. Lucas lives in the area and has no troubles finding the fish, and with a good bag of blackfish like this no one can dispute that! Baits of sandworm, prawn and green weed have been doing the job on the luderick when fished on a float rig. 


The bream fishing in the Gippsland lakes has been good at the moment, with some good fishing in the rivers and also around Metung. Fresh baits of whitebait, crab and prawn have been the best for the bream.  Customer Brendan recently fished from the jetties around Metung where he has been catching quality bream. He last session saw him catch a bag of lovely Luderick using fresh local cabbage weed.

Lake Tyers is fishing somewhat patchy at the moment – there is plenty of good fishing to be had but some decent time needs to be spent in finding the fish. Staff member Dylan caught some ripper Tailor, Bream and flathead while fishing the lake last week. Larger profiled lures did the damage, as the lake is closed to the ocean and there are big schools of baitfish trapped in the lake.

Customer Dean and his son Jaiden fished the lake last week, where they landed some nice bream and flatties using frozen prawn.
