The past weeks have seen the Bemm at its best!
This would have to be one of the best runs of fish the Bemm has seen for many seasons, with the average being 34cm and over, all through out the system. The most talked about bait for these fish are banana prawns, vibes and plastics.
There is also a good presence of luderick throughout the waterways being caught on sandworm.
Flathead are starting to get active again now that the weather and water is warmer.
Currently the entrance remains open. The lake is shallow so ‘boaties’ must be vigilant.
The river is fishing very well, which is typical of this time of year as the fish are heading up into the muddy banks to spawn.
When the weather permits the surf beaches are producing quality salmon and tailor. One of our locals fished ‘First Beach’ recently and returned home after only one hour, as he was exhausted from reeling fish after every cast. Russ is now bike riding daily to get fit enough to spend at least 2 hours fishing!
Pearl Point has had an amazing transformation following king tides this year with deep gutters out the front, and has started to produce gummies and school shark on the full moon.
Due to the excellent season we have had with the entrance remaining opening throughout autumn, winter and spring, this should ensure a productive prawning season.
Don’t forget to get in early with your bookings as Bemm River is gearing up for another amazing season.
