The fishing has improved out of sight and the entrance remains open.
A large school of tailor have been sighted in Bobs Bay cruising back into the channel. Catching these are a lot of fun on spinners and bream gear. Around the mouth of the river and the reed beds, the bream have really been on the bite and obviously starting to move up the river.
Lester Burge fished his favourite spots around Pelican Point in the last week and was rewarded with quality bream up to 40cm and just over the kilo mark. Now that we are heading into the warmer weather and hopefully the water temperature starts to improve we should see the flathead (dusky) back in abundance.
It has been noticed by some night anglers that the flathead lays are prominent all over the sand beds throughout the entire system.
Surf beaches have been producing some great salmon, especially at Pyoot Bay where anglers have been sheltering from the prevailing winds.
These fish are always fun to catch and good table fare if prepared properly. All in all, Bemm River will be the ultimate spring fishing destination in 2014.
