Anglers have certainly not been disappointed with the fishing in the past month. So far the entrance remains open.
The flathead have become prominent again, as per last year. They are being caught on frozen prawn and soft plastics.
Bream are also out and about, being caught on frozen prawn, sandworm and soft plastics.
Some quality fish have been landed from our fishing platform and on the riverbanks, so those who don’t own a boat won’t necessarily miss out. Some big fish have been caught in the shallows.
The channel remains a ‘hot spot’ for the salmon and tailor on the incoming tide. This is great family fun and good exercise. Flicking lures from the bank into the entrance provides hours of entertainment. You might also be lucky enough to pick up a trevally or flatty for your efforts.
Even though the entrance has been open for the past nine months, I have received recent reports of nice ‘eating size’ prawns being caught in the channel.
The surf has produced lots of salmon at First Beach. The Burkett family experienced another fantastic holiday with bags of salmon from the first day of arriving in Bemm River. They have also had excellent bags of bream up to 43cm, which are some of the best quality bream we have seen for some time.Reads: 639
