Bemm is certainly hotting up with a variety of species being caught.
The entrance has been open for six months now and is not showing signs of closing any time soon.
The river has been a hot spot for the anglers using soft plastics with good-sized bream being caught and the odd estuary perch.
Sandworm is scarce at the moment but anglers are getting good results with peeled prawn, lures and soft plastics. Australian salmon and tailor are still prominent in the channel.
Now the good weather is with us the surf beaches will fire up with many anglers predicting a really good season for gummies.
Pumping for sandworm has been hard work but small bass yabbies and pipis have been pumped up amongst the sand and this has proved to be excellent bait.
Good catches of whiting around the vicinity of mud lake and quality bream in Bob’s Bay and Siberia in the quieter waters have been made with these quality baits.
The future of Bemm River’s fishing is looking fantastic with many people reporting that they have seen the black bream spawning. This is an excellent sign of a healthy system.
I would also like to remind everyone to be vigilant during the warm weather for snakes. They are certainly out and about and very active.
The girls have been out-fishing the boys at Bemm River, with some terrific catches in recent times.
Celeste Chapman, of Southern Boat Angling Club caught a magnificent 2.1kg on 1kg, which she caught in the channel on bass yabbies, making her the envy of all around.
Trying not to be outdone, Keith Chapman, also of Southern Boat Angling Club reported good catches recently with a 1kg flathead which he caught in the channel on bas yabbies, in addition to quality bream and trevally, but nothing can match the fishing chicks.
