Siberia-like conditions have been rewarding anglers with bream, flathead and the odd pinkie snapper caught on prawns and yabbies.
The surf has provided a continuous amount of family fun with an abundance of Australian salmon, with the best bait being pilchard and poppers.
The Jones family, of Langwarrin caught 14 salmon in the channel in one afternoon, in addition to luderick and tailor.
Since the entrance opened on May 2nd, and at the time of writing, the reports have been slow due to inclement weather.
This entrance opening has happened at a perfect time of the year.
Seven years ago the entrance opened during this same period and we had one of the best winter’s fishing that we have seen.
The opening back then sparked a huge run of salmon into the lake system, with an influx of luderick and also silver bream.
We have no doubt that this will repeat itself.
Prior to the entrance opening the channel was producing bream, trevally, flathead and tailor.
Please feel welcome to phone for an updated report at any time as I am sure David and myself will be heading out on the water every chance we get during this period.
