The fishing at Bemm River continues to get better as summer heat pushes spring into history.
Recently Bemm River hosted the International Hobie Fishing Comp with competitors coming from all over the world.
This was an extremely successful event and very well organised, with Melbourne angler Richard Sommerton coming out on top.
Melbourne Cup weekend was also another huge success even though intermittent days consisted of strong winds, but it still unleased great catches of fish when it was possible to get out on the water.
When anglers were unable to get on the water, they sat on the riverbank and there were some very successful anglers catching plenty of bream, luderick and perch.
Tailor up to 3kg were plentiful in the channel using lures of many types, such as silver metal slices and soft plastics.
The Knox Fishing Club reported catches of quality luderick up to 3kg in Bobs Bay on sandworm, and bream up to 42cm also on sandworm and prawn.
As we get into December hopefully the winds have gone, the weather is warming up and the entrance should be closed.
This makes for a fantastic lead up to our Christmas ‘fun in the sun’ periods.
There are excellent reports of fishing coming from the surf beaches with quality salmon, tailor, good catches of gummy, seven-gill shark in addition to the odd ray.
