Happy New Year to all our readers, it is amazing to think another year has flown by.
Bemm River has lived up to its majestic reputation once again. The past months have seen quality fish species ranging from bream, luderick, trevally and flathead all being caught in the lake. Frozen prawns have been successful with a variety of species but sandworm has proven to be a winner with the bream.
David and Jenny Russell from Lara fished early morning in the Bobs Bay area and even though they threw many fish back under 30cm, they still managed to bag out on fish between 30-45cm every day. They were using prawn and enjoyed the variety of species during the two weeks while they were here. They also had a good run on flathead on lure in the lake.
The Lakes Entrance Rotary Club had a successful weekend late November with quality bream on sandworm all caught in the lake.
The entrance remains open so far, and tailor and salmon have been caught in the channel. Although most anglers at this time of the year are targeting bream, it is obvious that we are going to have another bumper flathead season. With the entrance being open it should create a lot of prawns, which will also increase the bream, estuary perch, tailor, trevally and plenty of luderick thrown into the mix.
The surf has started to produce great runs of salmon and tailor during the day on the incoming tides. The warmer nights should see a lot of action on the beaches with gummy shark and other species.
