The lake level is high and the fishing continues to astound us with some of the best starts to every season that we have personally experienced in our ten years in Bemm River.
Whilst the water remains warm the flatheads are still on the bite, the surf is also producing and will only get better as the warm water continue to pass through.
We have seen a major shift to lure fishing in the last twelve months.
This is probably due to an abundance of fish and anglers have altered thoughts on live bait and has appeared to have changed their way of thinking and have taught themselves how to fish with vibes and soft plastics.
The lead up to this years winter bream fishing is showing signs of probably some of the best winter fishing we will see.
The river continues to fish well with quality perch, bream and the odd flathead. Bank fishing from Dollys Garden has been great for the angler that does not have a boat.
Early mornings and late afternoons has seen the fishing platform at the main jetty producing quality bream and flathead.
Trolling or spinning with lures in the channel is picking up some rather large trevally, which on light gear will give you a great workout.
The ‘die hard’ anglers who still enjoy bait fishing are still being well rewarded.
Preserved sandworm in a liquid solution has opened up many options for bait fishers. This product can be kept for long periods of time by placing in a freezer.
When it is put on the hook and placed in the water it appears to be restored to its original live condition.
There are still people insisting to show their greed and still taking more fish than they should – anglers, if you witness these activities please report the registration details of the boat. You are not a ‘dobber’ you are preserving your rights for the future.
