Here in Lakes Entrance the recent school holidays saw anglers of all ages fishing off town jetties. Mullet were the mainstay for the kids, while the older people are still catching luderick by the bucket load.
Just a reminder, the limit for luderick is 10 fish per day, including those you give away. Some local people found this out when they were spoken to by Fisheries Officers, who issued them a fine as well.
On some days salmon are appearing on a run-in tide around Bullock Island. Lazer lures around 35g are a good lure to use.
Bream are a little slow at this time of year, but some nice fish are biting after dark on local prawns fished unweighted around the pylons under the town jetties.
Salmon on the local beaches have been good first thing in the morning until 10am. Most fish are around 1kg, with the odd fish around 2kg. They are taking bluebait and blue poppers.
Wind has played havoc with fishing outside the entrance, with only a few reports coming in. Local Dale Moss had a good day out with many small snapper caught on the Six Mile Reef, then came in toward the beach and caught a few gummies on local whole squid. He also reported some large sharks taken late in the day, but let them go to fight another day.
Not a lot has changed in Lake Tyers on the fishing front. The most productive area is still around the bottom end of the lake, with bream and flathead caught near Fishermans Landing and out towards the main lake. Most fish were caught on local prawn around the marker buoys.
In early July during a king tide a good flush of seawater come in and over the sand. The lake rose around 50cm so the new water should improve the fishing.
